Quite simply put, the Diamond is one of Wharfedale’s most successful speaker series. Year after year, the Diamond Series has broken the mold 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 Wharfedale is 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 Wharfedale’s 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.
Available finishes include: Black Ash, Pearl Walnut, Rosewood, and White Sandex.
