I agree with Zorba. These speakers are easily good enough to be used as mains or a separate 2.1 setup. You can get much cheaper speakers for surround duty, but if you can get them for $100-120, you should get them. You can always re-purpose them to a starring role later on.

What other speakers do you have?

Kef Q100 FL/FR,SL/SR, Kef Q200C, JBL SP 150 & Bic F12 subs, Denon AVR-S710W, , Panasonic 50" Plasma, cable box, Xbox One, Toshiba laptop.

He came back and said final price at $140 for the pair. the person is about 1 .5 hour drive from me in Connecticut.

I currently just bought 2 RBH towers and 1 RBH center speaker which i have not installed yet. I was hoping to pair these wharfedales with my 3.1 setup to make it a 5.1.

That would make more sense if you do a lot of native surround music, or use all-stereo mode during parties. For HT I would choose the aforementioned Klipsch speakers for their smaller size, higher sensitivity and treble energy. (Not to mention them being $50 cheaper, or rather $70 cheaper once you factor in gas for the 3 hour drive.)

~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)

If you have no other plans for the Wharfedales other than surround duty, maybe consider getting a used pair of speakers from you local pawn shop for $25-30 or For about the round trip + speaker price you can get 2 RBH R5Bi bookshelf speakers without ever leaving your living room and have full matching 5.1 setup.

I purchased a full Wharfedale setup, 225 220c 210, for a surround set and now am conflicted as to using the 210's for rear surround duty. they are so much better than just for that.

My point exactly! Seems a complete waste of their talent.
In your case it makes more sense since your surrounds won't be better than your mains. Matching surrounds to your fronts isn't that critical, but is always a good idea whenever possible.
FWIW, I'm not really missing anything with my inexpensive surrounds. If anything, I'll upgrade the subs long before the surrounds get considered.

Just picked up a pair of Dentons on Friday. So far I'm quite pleased with these guys! They are some solid little speakers with a great finish.

I've owned close to 40 pairs of speakers at this point, and these will be some that stay for a while.

They are going to be used for my computer setup with an NAD D 3020 integrated amp. Waiting for some isoacoustics stands to get things all set...but for now they sound pretty great. Also tried them in my living room and it was one of the most relaxing music listening events I've had.

Hey guys, I am very new to owning Wharfedale, well today to be exact. My wife wanted to try her DIY work on a buffet she found on the internet. When we went to go pick it up, we found out the owners were moving to SoCal and couldn't bring much with them. They asked if there was anything else we'd be interested in. I said, you don't have any speakers do you? Sure enough he had two vintage Wharfedale W70 Speakers, an amp and a Phillips turntable. He asked for $25 for all of it. He did cut the grills away due to fraying, but I can fix that. And the veneer needs some touch up work. They previous owner of the house bought these brand new in 1965. They stayed in the same house for 52 years, never moving, until today. The best part, they still had the literature that came with the Speakers! Anyway I posted some pictures in case any of you guys like these vintage speakers.
