Hi there.

I was just wondering what people might think is an acceptable price for a second hand 5.1 set of wharfedale diamonds.
9.5
9.0
9cs
Sw150

I'm pretty out of touch.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

$250-500.

 

I have a set. Bought in 2006. Still works!

I've seen them chase up past 500 comfortably on Trademe, I'd say try your luck there.

I would think your dreamin' / mad bargain to get all 6 speakers for $250 ie. Fronts / Rears / Centre / Powered Sub - given a set of 9.5 fronts would collect $300ish on TMe. 

 

I'll buy your set for $250 if you like : )

 

 

 

To the OP - I think they RRP at around $2k - but could be got for more like $1,500 - so IMO $700 for all 6 would be an OK deal - esp seeing as the current inferior Crystal series retails for $1,200 and without the powered sub.

These were one of those items that would always be on sale at some stage.   You'd have been mad to buy these at full price back in the day, as they'd be on sale again next week.

 

 

 

The crystals were relatively rubbish, the 9.5 were quite nice, but the 9.6's were amazing.  As above, this was all 10 years ago now.

Thanks for the replies. Helps a lot. Seen a set for 750, but thought 500 might be ok.
Cheers

Retailers would occasionally sell Diamond 10.6 packs for not much over $1200...

 

So as the 9's have been obsolete for a long time now, I'd be thinking it would be a lot closer to $500 than $750.

 

The subwoofer has had some issues re: electronics from time to time, so if you could buy a 5.0 and find another brand of sub you'd probably be better off in the long run.
