4 out of 5 "exceptional stereo image"
I bought these for a small bedroom and mounted them on wall brackets with 150mm space behind. The stereo image is impressive. Plenty of everything. Having picked them up for a song I have been rewarded with a gift. Much more expensive and more recent speakers don't separate the double bass from the piano, guitar, sax and drums any better than these Wharfedales therefore I won't be parting with them.

3 out of 5 "Wharfedale CRS 3 bookshelf loudspeakers"
For a budget loudspeaker, these are hard to beat.

A tad bright, a tad boxy, a tad every-criticism, but only a tad.

They are much more detailed and offer more realism, than my expensive Linn Sara 9s. And you can't listen to them all day, as you can with the Saras. But still, they sound very nice.

I plugged the ports with foam, and use them in parallel with the Saras sometimes, to add more detail. And sometimes, like tonight, I listen to them alone. Could be much worse sounding music!
