I sprang for the Evo30s to play around with and enjoy them. The maple finish is very nice--much like the Quad L series made in the same complex--and WAF friendly.
They're not high-end more upper-range of mid-fi [for lack of a better way of putting it]--for example the ACI Jaguars in my avatar are in another league--but certainly an introduction. While [understandably] coming up short against the Jags when I put them up against my ACI 25th Anniversary Sapphires and the Evos weren't embarrassed by them and were better in bass and coherence I think. Wharfdale is a bigger name in Britain & Asia than the U.S. I'd roughly compare these to the Quad L series if that's any help (I owned the 12Ls a couple of years back, made in the same factory complex I think).
If you have a sub or are getting one I'd recommend the Evo30s, if not then go for the 40s.
If you're looking for bang-for-the-buck & under $1000 floorstanders snap them up now.
