Thanks to an informative and entertaining visit with Tyler I had to end way too soon because of a meeting on my end, I ordered these speakers. Had not upgraded my speakers since purchasing my Polks in 1984. These are for listening exclusively to my LPs with a vintage Pioneer SX-780. Went with walnut finish for "classic" look - they came flawless. A few hours in and all I can say is they are an amazing upgrade for my vinyl collection and I'm really enjoying them. Anything from Led Zeppelin/classic rock to jazz (especially the vocals and instrumental nuances in the jazz LPs) is simply terrific! Bass great, mid-range super and I'm not sensing any issues with the treble at all that some say just needs some breaking in, but if it's possible for these to sound better, I'm all ears, lol. Great service! Also got the stands - solid as can be and each holds more than the 25 albums some reviewers out there (who probably didn't fill them up) claimed they would hold.
Pros: Clear, crisp, plenty of bottom end.

Received the pair of Linton Heritage speakers w stands within 2 days of my order placement so was able to pull them out and set them up for the weekend. The speakers and stands LOOK AWESOME! I got the Mahogany setup and they are beautiful. I disconnected my Def Tech BP30's (24 years old) and tied the Heritages into the Emotiva XPA-DR3 and fired them up. They SOUND as AWESOME as they Look! Tuned them a little by playing with the graphic equalizer on the Marantz SR8012 and ended up with them about 24" off the back wall and toed in slightly. They do like the power and at 6 ohms, they draw what they need. Plenty of nice tight base with clear distinctive vocals and the sweet highs from the warm tweeter. It is truly hard to believe that they fill my 18' x 22' living room so well especially from speakers this size!
Pros: Great sound from a rather small package. The stands are awesome as they were already assembled and match perfectly. Price was right (I feel like I stole them for this price!). 2 Day delivery (just in time for weekend!).
Cons: What Cons???

I've had beautiful Wharfedale speakers since 1971. They a nice to look at with soothing to the eye warm, real wood cabinets. They are a tradition unto themselves and fit with any furniture genre. The sound is impeccable. At low or high volumes still clear and precise tones. They have never failed to deliver and trustworthy friends that never fail to deliver.

these are book matched pairs!!! WOW. I have been around stereos longer than I would like to admit and have made some of my own speakers as well.So, turn it turns out I was at my neighbors house just the other day maybe a 6 or more thousand dollar system , maybe 5 ft. tall (Thiel) and I am telling you these sweet sounding little honeys (ha,,,40 lbs. ea.) favorably compare but sometimes have a sweet twinkle on top! I LOVE these!!!
