So, my plan all along was to sell my KEF Q750s (sold, BTW) and travel up the KEF line by purchasing either the R300 or R500. Because of my current listening room, which is quite small, I was leaning towards the former, but can get a killer deal on the latter. Of course, some us silly audio types are never satisfied, even if the deal is nearly done and sitting in our proverbial laps. I was browsing the interwebs last night (mostly out of boredom before the KC vs LAC game got really good) and came across a killer deal on some brand new Wharfedale Jade 3 speakers:\n\n\nI remember reading a review on Stereophile that intrigued me several years ago and this offering piqued my interest. so to my question: Does anyone on this forum have experience with this particular line? I know Wharfedale has a good reputation for their affordable Diamond line and I have seen (but never heard) their Jade series for years.\n\nYes, I know my KEF loyalist friends on here and FB would tell me to hold true to the Kent ideal, but it's "new" and "different"! Unfortunately, the finish is the black oak pictured - if it were the piano black at the same price, it would have already been ordered!
