Bought my crs9's over 20 years ago & as one review wrote they where devastatingly expensive @ the time. 20 years faultless use has more than proved them to be a very good buy. Just bought a new amp Yamaha As 500 (highly rated in Hifi mag) to replace my old Sony ta333. I thought the quality was great before but now it is simply incredible. Listen to other more modern friends systems & nothing compares, if you can find a pair buy them. Now i have an amp that can run 2 sets i am looking for a... (read more)

Ive had these Wharfedale CRS9 for 12-15 years! I am currently using them as my front speakers for my current home theater system.I'm running a 100 watt x5 Denon receiver rated at .05 distortion. These speakers are still amazing! Warm bright, punchy, clean, durable!
I did blow a mid-range speaker a few years ago but I got it re-coned and they haven't missed a beat since.
I am a musician and audiophile and I cannot imagine what it would cost to replace these speakers today...... (read more)

I bought these a long time ago, at least thirteen years, and they were as superb on the day I bought them as they are now. They have never faltered. They were devastatingly expensive at the time and until I actually got them home from Cardiff and plugged them into my Technics separates system of the time I never realised why.
The bass in one of the ZZ Top songs prompted me and my mate to go back to Cardiff to get spikes for them as it literally made us go dizzy - that is some power for... (read more)

These speakers last! I have had my Wharfedale CRS9 stereo speakers for around 12 years now. They are still the main speakers in my home theatre system and going strong. I've used them with many different amps over the years, and the sound has always been incredible. I've never had to search for a replacement (read more)

I had a pair of Wharfedale CRS9's and swear by them. They stood up to a hammering and never missed a beat, always producing the best sound I have heard, until I recently heard a B&O system worth 10 times the purchase price. Mine were stolen, if you find some (except mine!) buy them!!!! (read more)

I have a pair of hand made, English, Wharfedale CRS9 speakers and I wouldn't part with them for anything. The sound they produce is easily the best I've heard. Unfortunately, they're powered, at this point, by a Sony LBT-A495 head deck, which does them no justice, but with a decent head unit and even a nice amplifier, I couldn't ask for a better set-up.
