“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
Wharfedale Diamond 220
Quite simply put, the Wharfedale Diamond is one of their most successful speaker series, if not one of the most successful hi-fi speaker series ever. They 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 they 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 their famous woven Kevlar cone form, drawing influence from the flagship Jade Series.
Since 1982, Wharfedale's renowned Diamond loudspeakers have served as the gateway to true hi-fi sound. Due to the combination of excellent sound performance and the right price-quality ratio, this series has already received numerous awards. With over eighty years in loudspeaker design and manufacturing, one important thing has been learned, keep it simple. That is why the Diamond 200 series was created.
An important criterion in the design of the Diamond 220 is the continuous research into the sound quality of the drivers. The 220 uses the famous woven Kevlar cone shapes. The drivers feature the latest hi-fi technology for beautiful texture and dynamic instrumentation, making music more expressive and compelling than ever before.
The Diamond 220 is a compact two-way bookshelf speaker, with the bass port located at the bottom. The advantage of this is that the wall behind does not generate a strong interaction with the speaker, which increases the sound quality.
One of the Greatest Values in Audio: Award-Winning Wharfedale Diamond 220 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Delivers Sublime Transparency, Incredible Balance, and Pinpoint Accuracy Wharfedale Diamond 220 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Sounds Airy, Open, Musical, Natural, and Clear: Enjoy Audiophile Performance for a Budget Price from the "Best Speaker Under $400" Like the world's most beautiful diamonds, the Wharfedale Diamond 220 bookshelf loudspeaker offers a rare combination of balanced dispersion, brilliant proportionality, and sublime transparency. A two-way speaker that sounds much bigger than its compact size, the award-winning Diamond 220 exhibits crackerjack musicality, pinpoint accuracy, and refined tonality. You'll hear sheer instrumental naturalism, lifelike vocal reproduction, and tautly focused soundstages. A 5.1-inch bass driver ensures rich, controlled bottom-end performance while the soft-dome treble spoils you with smooth, supple highs. Elevated sensations of airiness, spaciousness, and openness make every type of music come alive with covetable vibrancy, intimacy, and energy on par with speakers far above Diamond 220's price class. Built to exacting standards, Diamond 220 puts an end to treating music as background entertainment. Never again will you long for close connections to your favorite artists or be tempted to leave the room while a song is playing. The emotional involvement rendered by Diamond 220 is that significant. Upgraded construction materials, fine-tuned crossovers, Wharfedale's signature woven-Kevlar drivers, updated bass and treble units, and a slot-loaded port turn this speaker into an overachieving dynamo. Compatible with mid- and higher-powered amplifiers, Diamond 220 obliterates precepts associated with budget products and stakes its claim as one of the best values in audio. Hear it for yourself
