Wharfedale Jade 3 Bookshelf Speakers in Vintage Cherry Wood [Expired]


no longer for sale

These speakers were in my office where they were unfortunately not much used.  They are large for bookshelf speakers, and the bass they produce is surprisingly deep, but it is the midrange I enjoyed most.  Their visual design is also striking, especially the richly grained and figured wood in what to me seems a very-British Vintage Cherry finish.  They sound terrific and, given their lack of use, I expect will open up further with use. 

Of course, everyone’s ears and rooms differ, so I’ll cite reviews to give other’s ideas about these gems:

Cosmetically, these speakers look great.  I bought them new.  The overly-conservative rating of 7 is due to one rub through the veneer at the very bottom edge of the back of one speaker and a pinpoint sized flaw on an upper edge (see photos).  You'll have to closely inspect these to notice anything other than the beauty of the wood.  These will ship together in the original factory packaging and include original jumpers, manual, and white gloves.  From a non-smoking home.

I will pay Paypal fee and ask the buyer to pay ensured shipping costs.
