Love these speakers.

published

I have had these speakers since 2010 and they are still going very strong, they are loud and when combined with 4 of the AT-200 bookshelf speakers as the surround speakers. I have a pioneer SC-2022 and they make a great team. This amp can't bi-amp and I was going to bi-wire them but I don't see the point if the wires are joined at the receivers end. for the price they are now I would highly recommend them, I paid more back in 2010 and that was with 20% off. Before the 2022 i had a pioneer VSX-919ah and upgrading the amp made them sound so much better.

quality from whisper to roar

Borer 1

Borer 1asked

I own a set of the Atlantic AT 500 speakers and use them as Stereo speakers. I had no idea that they can handle 250watts. I've been using them with a denon 100 watt per channel amp, is this amp powerful enough for them?

Hi Borer 1, No if you’re like me & enjoy music / movies loud, clean & clear my suggestion is to definitely go for a much more powerful amplifier, you will notice the difference. I’m running mine on a Yamaha RX-V3083 @ 200 watts ch connected via bi-amp ch feature 9.2 ch amplifier running as 7.2 ch & it sounds awesome.

Thanks Justin,
I need to replace the Denon Amp soon and will have a look at the Yamaha before I buy another Amp.
Cheers,
Borer1

I am running my Wharfedale Atlantic 500 speakers with Harman /kardon avr130. I also connected my Wharfedale crystal clear2 with yamaha ax492 which plays at the same time from 1 DVD player yamaha s857 and my surroundings are tannoy fashion r 806684. Is this a good combination or do I need to change something? however both amplifiers plays well and the harman/kardon delivers a deep warm sound while yamaha delivers a clear natural sound. Please advise in anyway

The problem is your amp running the wharfedale atlantic at 500 is only 45 watts rms and is 8 ohm not 6 ohm which the speakers are they can handle 250 watts rms your other amp is better at 85 watts perhaps you should get the other amp to run the wharfedales 85 watts is better then 45 watts thats for sure i recomend you buy a new pioneer amp that has biamping and 120-140 watts per speaker channel a 7.1 amp so you can do 5.1 still because biamping uses 2 channels to power one speaker and read my review again hope i helped you:-)

Thank you very much for your help. What about Wharfedale crystal clear2 speakers! Can Harman/Kardon handle them well? If I swap speakers because they are 100 watt.
