Wharfedale Diamond 8.2A
For technical, they are equivalent on a lot of models. So it's not where it made the difference. Let's just say that nothing was missing.

It was to assemble the film (especially documentary but fiction). It was therefore necessary that they be shielded so as not to interfere with computer screens, which is the case. Note, the presence of a low-cut to fit the installation.

Note: vent on the front. We can therefore place them near a wall in a small space without increasing the bass. So perfect for a home studio or editing room in a small room.

They are connected in output from Final Cut Pro on a scope which is the DV D / A converter for sound output (while waiting to equip myself with a sound card most appropriate kind Mbox with Protools LE)

SOUNDS

Neutral, probably for the mids and treble. The bass is more discreet.

The stereo image is accurate, no worries.

Impeccable clarity and precision. Very good rendering of mediums and highs. They allow me to clean up the sound impeccably.

Dynamic: no problem, there is relief

They are unflattering, with its rather cold, probably due to the lack of bass. But this formidable listening allows a specific job, and that's what I need. So for the post-production, they are very good.

OVERALL OPINION

Used for a year.

+: The sound accurate, the return of midrange and treble, good stereo and have power in reserve

-: Can sound a bit cold, see metal. But that does not interfere with my work, so ... Some say they do not have enough bass, but again, it does not bother me too much, I'm more interested in midrange and treble.

Other models tested: the Genelec 1029A and 1030A used in sound editing for many providers. Nothing to say about these speakers, except the price too high.

In fact, it was recommended to me by a sound engineer who has a pair.
Purchased in August 2005 to € 130 a piece on discount website. Unbeatable value for money (accuracy and power).

Choose to repeat the same price (130 € each). Now it's € 190, then it should listen to the competition (Prodipe 5 and 8, M-Audio BX5a and 8a, Fostex PM-1, Yamaha HS50M and 80M), the time ... But anyway, c is a very good choice.

Wharfedale Diamond 8.2A
Purchased to listen my catch and prepare sound demos.
Used with a presonus FIREPOD
One would have hoped over the back markers as the only low-pass filter and levels.

SOUNDS

A frequency curve is never neutral.
Dynamics is observed on mid and treble, that there are no worries.
I find it a bit flat in the bass. I've heard better at this level.

The stereo image is really very good. I rediscovered what the center! There is therefore a very good "vision" of elements that are well mixe.Parfait to place a battery in space for example.

Matter of sound spectrum:
Very nice bass that are present without being invasive.
The mediums are rendered faithfully
The highs are less exceptional. It's not very crystalline. They are like softened.

Anyway, for the price, it can be excellent demos, or to its decision-checker sounds correctly

I would say they are loyal in the sense that, once I finished mixing a song, I made a respected over all other plays (Stereo, PA, headphones, radios).
In this sense, so I set these speakers as good as there is nothing worse than plays that do not understand what is being listened to by the end listener.

OVERALL OPINION

I use them for over a year.
Apart from the Yamaha NS10, Quested and large, I had not heard much at the time.
The NS10 does not seduce me.
The Quested are excellent but out of my budget.

These speakers are very well known because of the bad reputation of Wharfedale (Matos Chinese beginner to the poor quality).
Quote Wharfedale in the store sound system and you will laugh in your face.

And yet there they have done something very well.

Pros:
- Solids
- Good overall sound
- Faithful to the source
- Excellent stereo image
- Provides a nice overview of the results on other types of plays

Cons:
- A dynamic a bit flat in the bass
- The sharp enough crystalline.

For this budget, that's the choice I would do.
