Wharfedale Opus 2-3 Loudspeaker Review


Wharfedale is a brand that's been with us for quite some time though few this side of the "pond" are familiar with them-well reviewer Ken Taraszka gets up close and personal with these British beauties and comes away astonished. Will you? ...

The Wharfedale Opus 2-3 speakers are designed to suit the needs of die-hard two channel as well as home theater fanatics, and I think they do this in spades. While they are true, full range floorstanding speakers, their sleek lines and curved cabinets...

Wharfedale Opus 2-1 review


The Opus range has some very classy ingredients at a sharp price

Bulky and robust build ; Smooth and powerful sound ; Strong bass

Sound can be a bit edgy when pushed

With its substantial build, the Opus 2-1 represents exceptional material value for money. The sound is firm, solid, smooth and essentially neutral, albeit with slightly forward, bright and edgy tendencies

Wharfedale Opus2-M1 review


Wharfedale is once again establishing itself as a force to be reckoned with

Detailed, dynamically consistent sounding system ; Well integrated bass ; Smooth treble ; Three dimensional imaging

Some mid/high frequency noise

Here is a very impressive compact that breaks the mould from a brand not previously associated with elegant sounding and sophisticated design of the kind on offer here. It’s also well made and looks stylish when anchored to the optional stand

Wharfedale Opus2-M1


If Wharfedale could fix the cohesion and drop the price, these speakers would challenge the best

Astoundingly good tonal balance ; very detailed, especially in the midrange ; powerful, punchy bass

Timing issues prevent true cohesion ; huge for standmounts ; pricey next to rivals

Wharfedale Opus 2


Just bought bought a pair of Opus 2 -1 to place my old MB Quart 3, driving them with an Onkyo TX-NR808. These speakers have one of the best vocal reproduction I have every heard of. The bass is powerful, yet natural. The overall sound is very clean and...

Wharfedale Opus 2


These speakers came from one of the CES shows. They were the static display modles. First the looks: They look more like works of art than a part to your home theater system. Build quality: over all like a brick s%^T house minus the grills. The grill...

Stunning, beautifully made speakers that sound superb although the increased upper mid range did initially sound odd when compared to the 20 year old Missions they were replacing.

As usual for these speakers the very flimsy lugs that attach the grilles to the cabinets. Luckily the speaker cones are so beautiful that they should not be covered.

Product Specifications

The Opus2-M1s are unfeasibly big for standmounters: on normal-sized stands, these 51cm-tall monsters loom in front of you, and theres a strong case for looking for some shorter supports if the tweeters arent to be a long way above your ear-level. Youll also notice some peculiarity to the driver array: this is a genuine three-way design with a dedicated, domed midrange unit, the benefits of which swiftly become apparent. First, this driver can reproduce amazing levels of detail and clarity, so the entire midrange is amazingly insightful, ensuring vocals are particularly impressive. Second, the dome design means that the midrange drivers physical properties match those of the tweeter, making the crossover between mid and high frequencies tonally seamless.
