Quite simply put, the Wharfedale Diamond is one of our most successful speaker series, if not one of the most successful hi-fi speaker series ever. We can justify this as year on year, the Diamond Series has broken 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 we 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 our famous woven Kevlar cone form, drawing influence from the flagship Jade Series.
Britain has long been recognised as being the home of loudspeaker technology in terms of innovation and quality. Gilbert Briggs’ first loudspeaker was manufactured in 1932 through a passion for music and an ear for detail – in a sleepy little market town of Yorkshire Wharfedale was born. After winning multiple awards, his work is still much admired and respected throughout the hi-fi world today and our speakers are still driven by the same passion for music. Wharfedale’s Diamond series has a long history of achievement. The first Diamond was born in 1982 in the form of a rear ported hi-fi speaker. A combination of a 19mm dome tweeter, 120mm long throw polypropylene bass/mid driver and a simple yet highly effective crossover in a compact hi-fi speaker took the industry by storm. The speaker produced an impeccable stereo image, quickly becoming a best seller and a permanent fixture in the Wharfedale product range. Since then, every Wharfedale Diamond Series has been a best-seller.From 1982 Wharfedale Diamond has meant one thing – impeccable performance at an affordable price.

The Diamond 200 boasts the latest in hi-fi technology to produce a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience. Foremost in the design criteria for Diamond 200 is the ongoing research into loudspeaker driver sound quality. The Diamond Series utilises our famous woven Kevlar® cone drawing influence from the flagship Jade Series. Semi-elliptical ‘break-up’ areas on the Kevlar® woofer smooth the response through the audible range and the cone edges are treated with a unique diamond moulding.For Diamond 200 series Wharfedale’s engineers have refined and updated this design and drive unit motor systems have been redefined with more power with greater efficiency. Larger magnets for instance on the Diamond 220 create a greater sensitivity compared with previous loudspeakers.The treble unit uses a sheer fabric dome and advanced ferrite magnet system, surrounded by a carefully crafted wave guide that encourages outstanding midrange performance too
