Wharfedale Linton 2 is pair of classic two way standmount loudspeaker offering bass such as Spendor&Co (Long throw),
with special for Wharfedale mid heights. The system should be placed on stands, below horizon
Speakers sound vintage, advantage of closed box is precise bass,
Low frequencies are occasional and will not surprise.
High and middle frequencies are gentle and will not fell your ears bleeding, little bit backed up but will let you know about their presence when needed
Voices are soft and gentle.
It is best to experiment with those speakers, try stand-mount, shelf (some strong one), or on the floor.
