Great piece on the magic of hi-fi and musical satisfaction on a budget. There's something deeply satisfying about finding inexpensive equipment that moves the music and inspires such fine writing.
Been a fan of Wharfedale's for 20 years, from their thrifty little Diamond 7.2's to their big Pacific Evo 400's and Opus line(still thrifty, too). Another bonus: they seem to tame a lot of the harsh artifacts of many digital sources and provide dynamics way outside their footprint.
Good job again, Stephen.
