Speaker legends don't get much bigger than the Wharfedale Diamond 9.0.

The original small hi-fi speaker

It's hard to believe that the original Wharfedale Diamond is now past its thirtieth birthday. All those decades ago, it was the Diamond speaker that proved, for the first time, that excellent quality sound could be achieved from a small, budget speaker. Since then there have been dozens of imitators, but the Diamonds remain amongst the best available.

Solid construction
The cabinet isn't just compact, it's also very solid. This combination gives the Diamonds an extremely accurate sound quality as the cabinet doesn't flex or vibrate. Equally impressive are the drive units. A soft dome tweeter gives the clarity and smoothness of sound you'd expect from a more expensive speaker, while the woofer cone uses a carbon fibre type weave to offer extremely taut and responsive bass.

Surprisingly powerful
With a front port, these bass reflex speakers are punchier than you might expect and in no way could they ever be described as tinny. Over all, they may be small but the sound is grown-up, with excellent staging, realism and surprisingly powerful.

Hi-fi connections
It's not just the major aspects of the design that Wharfedale have got right, it's the details, too. Proper 4mm banana sockets will accept thick cable and offer the best type of connection. Threaded sockets at the rear make for secure and easy bracket attachment.

At £100 these speakers were clearly market leaders. Now we're offering them at this bargain price, the Diamond 9.0 speakers are a gem of a deal!

Speaker Enclosure Type
Type of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.

WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 9.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 222.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic wee speakers! Don't be fooled by the size of the speakers, they're really nice sounding. Paid only £39 for these and wasn't disappointed in the least. Crisp clear sound with accurate low bass tones. Absolutely perfect for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from these speakers have great sound Brought to use with Denon dm40. Very clear and focused sound. Great value for £40. Gary from the Leicester store was as always a great help in advice. Helpful and clued up staff, paired with great value is what makes Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers for the price I decided to buy some speakers for my old Pioneer separates from the eighties that I hadn't used for years and set up in the bedroom for occasional use, I was pleasantly surprised by the sound from the Wharfdales and a fantastic price at forty pounds too !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little speaker Bought as replacementioned for 30 year old A&R speakers which had rotted Driver surrounds. They sound fine for their size and my 30 year old NAD 3130 amp
Date published: 2017-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's not to like? Basic, excellent value for money speakers with good performance paired with a selection of amplifiers - from a small Lepy 20W to full size stereo separate amps. Well made, robust, box shaped and black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Budget speaker but check them out Don't write these budget speakers off without trying them out. I have some ageing Celestion speakers and these provide a similar sound quality at a fraction of the price. I would agree with people who mention the front covers, but concentrate on the sound quality which, as you would expect from Wharfedale, is excellent. Teamed mine with a Denon DM40 mini hifi, minidisc player and supra cable, what a result, really pleased. If you use banana plugs then take them in (I use Cambridge audio ones that do fit, but it's a bit of a squeeze) and test them first. The connectors to the back are partly plastic and space is a little limited, but I am being very picky here. I would definitely go with Wharfedale again, these are a delight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good quality Remarkable value, don't let the price or the size fool you, these are worth trying. They look a little odd because of their size on my 1980s stands but they are great replacements for the speakers that finally died over Christmas. Take care if removing and replacing the driver covers as the pins can easily break with this design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from proof that cheapest in the shop doesn't mean cheap Excellent quality at budget prices, Great sound, easy to put together and no regrets. No need to compromise by getting these ,
