WHARFEDALE LINTON & QUAD VENA II
The perfect system doesn’t exist. I think that’s the best part of this hobby: There is no single absolutely flawless system that will please every single ear in existence. And even the best systems have room to change and grow. Tastes vary and range as much as the human condition allows, and it allows for a whole lot. …
… That’s synergy to me. Any combination that creates an effect greater than the sum of its parts is working in synergy. So much for a buzz word. I promise I won’t use it again for at least a few years.
As individual components, I’d happily recommend both the Wharfedale Linton Heritage speakers with their optional stands and the QUAD Vena II integrated amplifier separately. However, it’s when you put these two together that they really shine. Their sound is on point, and it would be hard to find a living space that they wouldn’t fit into or elevate. I’d be more than happy to have these front and center in my living room. Highly recommended, alone or (especially) together.
