The Wharfedale Diamond legacy

The Wharfedale Diamond series has been the “go to” range of speakers, for over 30 years, for anyone looking for great performance on a budget. Competition in this market segment is fierce, and hence manufacturers such as Wharfedale invest great sums of research and development into making series such as the Diamond unfeasibly good for the money.

The added benefits of economy of scale, also make speakers at this price point outstanding value; you really will be surprised what your money buys you in today’s marketplace. With the Wharfedale Diamond 230, 240 and 250, that’s currently never been truer.

Wharfedale Diamond 230

The Wharfedale Diamond 230 represented the “entry level” floorstanders in the Diamond range; there was nothing “entry level” about their performance, however. Earning numerous accolades from the Hi-Fi press, including a full “five-star” review from What Hi-Fi, the Diamond 230’s have always been a strong performer.

What Hi-Fi wrote that the Wharfedale Diamond’s powerful presentation, “isn’t at the expense of agility, either – the 230s are saturated with decent helpings of drive and punch. Their neutral tonal balance is convincing, the bass deep and powerful, and the treble clear and accurate”.

A 2.5 way design, the Wharfedale Diamond employs the signature, Wharfedale Diamond, woven Kevlar cones in the 165mm drive units. The two mid/bass drivers are joined by a 25mm soft-dome tweeter, all of which are mounted in a nicely finished cabinet featuring a floor-firing port. The latter of which reduces port “chuffing” noise and allows for easier and less critical room placement.

Moving up in the range, we find Wharfedale’s Diamond 240 floorstanders; the 240’s have always been a popular “sweet spot” within the Wharfedale Diamond range, and with the current discount that’s set to be ever truer. A fully fledged, three-way design, the Diamond 240 utilises two bass drivers coupled to a mid-range driver and a 25mm soft-dome tweeter.

As one would expect, bass response is enhanced, reaching down deeper than the Diamond 230’s to 35Hz; the Diamond 240’s are definitely the choice for those who look for a deeper, more extended low-end as well as the high-fidelity we’ve come to expect from the Wharfedale Diamond range.

Topping the Wharfedale Diamond 200 range is the Diamond 250; challenging conceptions of a “budget” speaker, these are floor-standing speakers which would be at home in any serious Audiophile’s setup. Two 200mm bass drivers, a 130mm mid driver and a 25mm soft dome tweeter complete an impressive array of high-quality drivers.
