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.
Bass reflex - front port
WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 9.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 236.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small, budget bookshelf speakers but fills a room with sound perfectly Was a toss up between these and the JBL control 1s and these won as they were half the price and less plasticy looking. Sound quality is pretty good and these are currently being fed from a little SMSL lepi type amp and a raspberry pi. They fill the lounge with sound nicely, bass response is very good considering the size. They also sound much better than the TV when I route audio over bluetooth from my Fire TV. Overall Im really pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers for the price I bought these for my Sons 15th Birthday as he has just started collecting vinyl. I got a second hand stack system but it had no speakers. For small speakers these really do sound impressive and the Bass response is better than I thought it would be considering the size and some of the other reviews I had read. Really recommend these as at this price they are a really good buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I don't know what they sound like I have just bought a pair of Warfdale Diamond 9s to use on my desk, through a Dac/Amp from my PC. This shouldn't be a problem. Plug the speaker cable into the amp and the other end to the speakers and away we go. But no, Europe or some nonsense rears its pointless head and I find that the speaker connectors are filled and my cable terminated with banana plugs will not fit in what was previously a socket to accept them. I could start modifying these brand new untested speakers and risk damaging them, pull my fairly expensive cable apart or return the speakers and buy sensible ones
