Further information:

 

Wharfedale Diamond 9.5 towers

 

function is 10/10, still sound as good as new, very enjoyable speakers, plenty of reviews around I am sure, priced to move

 

sale includes 8 spikes for feet and the grilles.

 

appearance is a little shabby, unfortutely. 7/10..

veneers are peeling of course..

My fabulous offspring have pushed the 'noses' (dust caps) in a little, and drawn on the side of one tower.

A touch of white paint on another side from our entertainment unit, a few pins broken from the grilles

I have tried to capture all this with pics

with a little TLC, I'm sure you would see them back at 9/10

i'll leave that to you

 

located in blue mountains.

Yes, thank you! I paid a bit more for them, that's for sure. Would love to find a new home for them

Vinyl, based on this review from CNET:

 

Wharfedale Diamond-9-5

 

They like them lots: Wharfedale's towers may be the best speakers we've heard for less than $1,000

Well they certainly do have a lot going for them.

I suppose the upside of vinyl veneer is it would be cheaper and easier to repair/replace.

 

I loved them for years as my 2 channel setup, and they sound really good at low volume which is one of my gripes with most gear.

If they are that good sonically and people are concerned with the finish, you could recover them with a real timber veneer for probably less than $200. They seem to be all flat surfaces and square edges so it shouldn't be too hard. Iron-on timber veneer is pretty easy to apply.

They have a lovely old-school Brit sound, a bit on the dark side and they do like a bit of power. Absolutely perfect for an inexpensive shed audio system. The veneer is an easy 2min fix.

Thanks guys for all your encouragement 😎

 

Yep I think the veneer is still shaped correctly, and not dirty underneath. I should have just stuck it down and not mentioned it. it doesn't seem to split or warp.

 

Once the kids are both at school, I'll probably have time to potter in the shed again and repair things faithfully, but I really have to keep it simple just now

They have lovely long curves around the sides, and I would need a skilled tradesman anyway, to save me from having to do it twice!

I have a pair of 9.6 with the matching center. The compartment and the drivers were solidly built.

I was thinking to sell them but the current replacement model is made in China; cost $3k; and no curve body.... So I rather to keep the old girls. Still like them a lot.

Hope the next owner like it.

@mugwampjism I didn't mean to imply that you should renovate them. Just in response to the comments and questions about a vinyl wrap, I meant that if a buyer wanted to , they probably could replace it with a real timber veneer. 

I know what it's like with young kids - my enthusiasm for DIY projects is low these days. I fondly remember the days when I would take on a project like this, no worries.

Someone should snap these up and just glue the vinyl back on or just leave them as is  and enjoy the sound!

      Firstly, I love these speakers. When I first heard these speakers I absolutely fell in love. They sound amazing and have a soundstage to die for. They are also very well regarded in the audiophile community. I now have the opportunity to upgrade and the upgrade bug has totally hit me hence my reason for selling.

      …The flagship model in the twenty5 series is also the most capable. The mid-range dome driver makes it the most revealing while the substantial bass driver coupled to an extended ATL produces tangible bass that brings music and movies to life…

      Hi everyone! 
       
      I've got a mate who's happy to sell me his old speakers for $500. 
       
      Just wanting to know what kind of amplifier would need to drive these well? I'm still happy with my Audioengine A2+ powered speakers but this offer seems too good to turn down! 
       
      Help me out! There's all this mixed information about Mission and whether their Made in China status has negatively influenced their products! 
       
      Thanks anyone and everyone in advanced
