Hi all,
Im thinking about upgrading my home theatre system but of course I have a limited budget and most of the money will go on new AV receiver and 50" screen. Leaving little for blue ray player etc.
I have wharfedale diamond 8.4 floor and 8.1 surround speakers. Question is, can I mix these with other speakers like the newer diamond 10 series or even a differnt brand?

any thoughts?

Cheers,

Vic.

Yeah sure, just keep the pairs the same.

Think it usually depends on the speaker impedance doesn't it ?? Most are 8ohm but some are 16 ... depends on what the amp is designed for. Brand shouldn't make any difference as long as Ohm ratings are same and will handle max output of amp.
