Great comparison review, Robert. My question however regards the Wharfedale Diamond bookshelves. Woud you recommend the Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 over say the Epos Epic 1?

Although by no means I'm intending to undervalue any reviewer's opinion, I strongly suggest that you should find out by yourself if one of them fits your tastes and requirements. Some dealer can possibly demonstrate both of them to you. Along with Stereophile's brilliant reviews, give your ears a chance and trust them!
