Wharfedale Diamond 210 bookshelf speakers are part of the 200 series that replaces the 100 Series, they are ultra compact two-way stand mounts with a 100mm mid/bass driver.
Bass & Midrange
Bass and midrange cones are fashioned from woven Kevlar and incorporate semi-elliptical ‘break-up’ areas – visible as raised ‘V’ shapes on the cone’s surface – that smooth the response throughout the audible range. The dust cap is blended and treated to provide a smooth transition with the treble unit, which incorporates an advanced ferrite magnet system and a carefully constructed waveguide around the fabric dome for optimal dispersion.
Bass performance is enhanced by a newly refined version of the Slot-Loaded Distributed Port, first introduced in the outgoing Diamond 100 Series. Instead of the usual circular reflex port, all Diamond 200 Series models incorporate a port that exits at the base of the speaker cabinet, loaded by a slot that is created by the plinth.
This equalises the air pressure to mimic that inside the cabinet, allowing a smooth transition between the pressure variation in the cabinet and the low-frequency sound developed in the room. The result is deep, articulate and well-integrated bass, without the ‘chuffing’ that is often associated with regular front- or rear-mounted ports.
200 Series Finish
No other speaker range at such affordable price points implements an advanced bass loading system of this kind. All Wharfedale Diamond 200 Series speakers come in a choice of four finishes – black, white, walnut and rosewood - adding to their smart aesthetics and excellent value for money.
'Try the Diamond 200 series, Wharfedale’s long-evolved entry-level best seller... Part of what makes the Diamond 200 range so capable is the woven mid-bass driver tech handed down from the Jade series models.' (Hi-Fi Choice Magazine Feb 2014)
'It’s claimed that a significant element of the Diamond 200 series’ sonic success is down to the sandwich construction of its cabinet panels. Wharfedale’s engineers spent a lot of time getting this right, finally settling on layered particleboard and MDF of differing densities as the best defence against panel resonance ‘hot spots’ and the resulting ‘hear-through’ colouration caused by the cabinet singing along.'
