Wharfedale are great speakers, but are very mellow and laid back making better suited for music. I'm not saying the won't do well for HT, just that they won't be as dynamic as Klipsch or Kef.

Are you in the US?

Kef Q100 FL/FR,SL/SR, Q200C, SVS SB-2000, Denon AVR-X3400H, , Panasonic 50" Plasma, Xbox One.
Bedroom: JBL Loft 50 , Loft 20, Bic F-12, Denon AVR-S710W, PS3, 32" Insigna LED.

Hi,

No I am from India. I was only able to hear 3 brands deftech, paradigm and wharfdale but in all 3 different demo rooms so an exact comparison was not possible.

Between this 3 which would you suggest as the best for a HT setup. I prefer something which does not create a fatigue in a small room. The room size is 10 x 11 foot. I like a little high bass.

Also when I heard the wharfedale speakers I found them more clear and crisp and the bass was good.

Choose what you like. Since you have heard them, no reason not to pursue them.

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.

Those 602's look good. Only concern you may want to consider is they are rated 4ohm and might put a lot of load on your receiver. They are not 90db so fairly efficient. You just may want to consider a dedicated amp to power your three main speakers if you find them causing too much heat, distortion, etc with that receiver.
