I did listen to the Wharfedales. They are superb for $450/pair. The Aerials
are superb, period.
Speaking of High prices, the Boulder amplifier recently tested in SP, has achieved an extraordinary level of engineering to obtain the level of performance stated, to achieve such low THD and drive into practically any low-Z load is really an amazing performance , care to elaborate more on their bias scheme and level of performance obtained ...
I didn't see the usual confetti fanfare required in my issue :)

Meant to add that I took the speakers round to Ken Micallef for him to
write a follow-up review.
I've never heard a pair of Aerials that didn't sound great.
They have relatively low penetration into the high-end arena, but - IMO - they ought to be acknowledged much more.
I've seen you post here before, and that you're an "Industry Professional", but you don't have an Audio Asylum profile, and I've never heard of you in "the industry". Is there a website where we can see something about you?
and found it very useful.

My Facebook page has more info.
I don't recall if I actually met him in person at my first Vegas CES, but he was a rep for Avant Guarde horn speakers at the time. Unless there's another Jim Smith :-)
Just gonna say... Always liked the 10T. Was always just a bit outside my price range, but often considered it on the used market. STILL a huge fan of the B&W and KEF models with a mid/tweet module atop a woofer cabinet.
Today? Nothing Aerial makes that it close to my budget interests me at all.
at 3-4 nominal Ohms impedance, they must be hard to drive. The Warfdale's are rated at 8 Ohms.
