My main speakers are a set of Polk R50’s. I bought them for $100 on Craigs List and can only assume they are mass-produced budget speakers. Even with dented tweeters, they sound good to me and I have no complaints. Wharfedale’s Diamond 225 speakers recently caught my attention. I’ve poured through the glowing reviews and these little bookshelf speakers appear to have quite a following. They originally retailed for $449 but are on sale for $299. I took the sale price as a sign to upgrade my speakers. Then I pondered, WOULD it be an upgrade? Perhaps moving from tower speakers to bookshelf speakers would actually be a downgrade. My original reasoning was a $449 pair of bookshelf speakers would outperform cheaper floor standers. I envision greater clarity, wider soundstage, and detailed imaging. BUT, I would be LOSING two woofers. Would bookshelves sound less full? I do have a roommate so my stereo is in my bedroom. It measures 10’ x 11’ with 8 foot high ceilings. As a listening room, it’s not ideal. All wall space is utilized, so the speakers come out into the room. I’ve taken a pic to give you an idea of my set-up. Imgur Would it be a mistake to move from floor standing speakers to bookshelves? Or, should I simply be content and not fix what's not broken. Thanks for any input you can offer!
