Upgrade from Diamond 9.0 speakers?
Hello all. I'm looking for an upgrade to the Wharfedale Diamond 9.0's I have (bought on WHF recommendation btw). They are nice enough, but I can't help think they are the weakest spot in my (albeit modest) system. They just sound a little flat.... My front room is small and volume levels do not go too loud from my NAD 320BEE, so tone quality/clarity is everything to me. I have nice Ecosse speaker and interconnect cables, and they sit on Atacama stands so I haven't spared on that area. The source is either DVB radio via my Panasonic TV, or a Limit DVD800SE (Cyrus tuned model, but will be replaced by Azur 540D V2 after reading Octobers WHF review ).
Based on the facts that I need standmount speakers that are not much bigger than the Diamond's, and sit close to a wall (so have to be front ported ?) I wondered if the Q Acoustic 1010's are sufficiently better sounding to be worth buying? They seem to be highly regarded, but are they much better than the Diamonds?
Any help appreciated.
