Product Description

Wharfedale Diamond 220 was barely out for 5 minutes when What Hi-Fi magazine caught glimpse of it, had it in for a listen, and it started winning awards. These graded pairs are available at a very special price, while stocks last. They may have slight marks but are otherwise as new, boxed and complete with warranty.

Sandwich Cabinet

The Diamond 220 is a sandwich cabinet design, which uses particle board sandwiched by MDF on either side. This new construction offers superb rigidity and damping, helping to reduce the already low levels of distortion. It also offers a cleaner surface for the veneer to be applied to, giving a smoother finish all round.

Even Bass Output

As with the Diamond 121, this Diamond 220 ports the bass via an integral plinth, rather than the more usual front or rear holes. This provides a more efficient and even bass output whilst also making the speaker easier to place, as wall positioning doesn't need to be taken into account.

The ability to place the speaker close to a wall without concern for bass performance makes the 220 a real contender.

Kevlar Drivers

The Diamond 220 driver is formed of woven Kevlar and has ribs for added rigidity, whilst a revised magnet system gives even tighter control of the sound.

Vocals sound more realistic than you'd imagine for a speaker in this price range, the bass is upbeat and the treble unit is surrounded by a deeply dished waveguide. The detailed treble is refined, which helps to improve the image of the sound allowing the listener to pick out individual instruments.

Why the Diamond 220?

Apart from the fact that they won an award in the What Hi-Fi 2014 Awards, the Diamond 220 improve upon an already stunning design and highly reviewed speakers, making these some of the best value, high-performance bookshelf speakers we've ever heard, a bargain at this price!

The gloss finished baffle is also new, making these the Diamond 220 an attractive and accomplished loud speaker. Don't forget to use them on dedicated speaker stands for the best sound.

Press Reviews

  • 'By any standards. the Diamond 220s are musically-worthwhile speakers - and by budget standards. they're crackers. A believable stereo image can be projected, and as long as you don't need the deepest in bass will do iustice to a well thought-out budget or lower-midrange audio system.' (Hi-Fi World Magazine April 2015)
  • ‘Having ironed out the creases of predecessors, the 220s really are hard to fault’ (What Hi-Fi Magazine March 2015)

  • ‘It’s the Diamonds level of insight and dynamic aptitude that really lifts them above their peers. In Grieg’s Piano Concerto, instruments are packed with variation and subtlety – piano sequences are fluid and telling, violins textured. Dynamic presence in even the quietest sections helps convey the gradual build up of a piece. The 220s are happy delivering drama – as the orchestration gains impetus, they simply go along with the ride’ (What Hi-Fi Magazine March 2015)

  • ‘The talented Diamond 220s will likely be the jewel in the crown of any budget – or even mid-range set-up. Would we go as far as saying they’re one of the best hi-fi products you can buy below £200? Without a doubt’ (What Hi-Fi Magazine March 2015)

    I use em as back pair. BAD: even my entry level Pioneer vsx830 can overpower them; GOOD: sound is OK; they are made for bi-wiring (can run with 1 cable dough), can hold cable (size6) and even bigger; very nice sound - I'm not fan of fancy words, so they are OK and that's enough. If U're used to computer speakers (any class) - they are much better, both sound and power. I would recommend 225 diamond for mach with floorstanders.

    Perfect little pair of speakers. Incredible clarity and transparency. I use the speakers mainly for acoustic music. Thanks also to John at audioaffair for the great customer care. Due to a delivery problem with another set of speakers I was kindly offered this more expensive set as a replacement. Delivered in two days afterwards to Belgium... Best wishes, Stan
