    MY TAKE:


    A classic speaker series that has been a best-seller, and been critically acclaimed, for the last 30 years, the Wharfedale Diamond  220 has raised the bar for entry level home audio. - Galen Carol

     

    Quite simply put, the Wharfedale Diamond is one of our most successful speaker series, if not one of the most successful hi-fi speaker series ever. We can justify this as year on year, the Diamond Series has broke the mould for combining award winning sound quality unforeseen at this price.

    From 1982 Wharfedale Diamond has meant one thing – impeccable performance at an affordable price. Today we are pleased to bring you the latest series of loudspeakers from Wharfedale that aspires to this tradition – Diamond 200 Series.

    Foremost in the design criteria for Diamond 200 is the ongoing research into loudspeaker driver sound quality. The speaker series uses our famous woven Kevlar cone form, drawing influence from the flagship Jade Series.

    While honing the internal crossover and using stronger magnets on the rear of the Diamond 220 for example, aesthetics and construction have been improved too. The Diamond 200 Series benefits from an all new lacquered front baffle and cosmetically enhanced veneers.

    Only when the acousting tests are deemed truly satisfying are the loudspeakers designs signed-off for production, ensuring that each speaker model fulfils its eventual owner's drwams of musically enjoyable reproduction from Britain's Most Famous Loudspeakers.

     

    REVIEWS:

    "Although the Wharfedale Diamond 220 retails for only $349/pair, there was nothing cheap or lacking in its sound. I was blown away. From the upper midrange up, the tweeters sounded smooth, with no hint of harshness... I didn’t know what to expect from the Diamond 220. I’d had limited exposure to Wharfedale speakers, especially in recent years -- their distribution in my part of Canada is limited. But once I’d given them a good listen, the Diamond 220s’ sound captivated me. Perfection can’t be expected for $349/pair, but the Wharfedales had no glaring weaknesses. The Diamond 220 is a great all-around speaker that significantly raises the bar for budget speakers." - Diamond 220 Review, Soundstage!

    "...it presents the soundstage in a clear and upfront manner. Because the three drive units integrate so well it sounds very sophisticated considering the price" ★★★★★ - Diamond 230 Review, Hi-Fi Choice

    "Wonderfully balanced and informative sound" ★★★★★ - Diamond 220 Review, What Hi-Fi? Sound And VIsion

    "For the money, you're getting a real deal" ★★★★★ - Diamond 230 Review, What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision

    "By any standards, the Diamond 220s are musically-worthwhile speakers - and by budget standards, they're crackers." - Diamond 220, Hi-Fi World - Awarded 5 Globes
