The LSi7 has a nice smooth, warm sound.

I haven't heard the Wharfdales but between the LSi7s and B&W 601s, I'd have a strong preference for the Polks. To my ears, the midrange and highs are much more natural with the polks.
You might also think about something in the Totem line. The Model 1s are nice and there are many good reviews here and elsewhere to give you a sense for their sound. Although the Model 1s are small they project a huge soundstage. They're also more expensive--but what you gain is more flexibility in the long run if, for example, you end up moving your speakers to another room.
