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

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.

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 like larger, less well made speakers. Equally impressive are the drive units. A soft dome tweeter gives the clarity and smoothness of sound you'd expect from a much more expensive speaker whilst the woofer cone uses a carbon fibre type weave to offer extremely taut and responsive bass. 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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5áby impressive sound from budget speakers I purchased the Wharfedale Diamond 9.0 as a replacement for the front speakers on my surround system and it has transformed the system, for ú49.00 from Richer Sounds Liverpool it's a no brainer!! 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby A well made speaker I wanted a pair of small speakers for hi-fi in a small room. Looked at reviews on the internet, and finally decided that these would fit the bill. And the actual bill was great, being quite a bit less than other sources. Sound quality is very good, considering the dimensions of the speaker. Very pleased with this product.. Service from your Hull shopwas great. Friendly staff, and prompt attention to my needs. 15 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent speakers for a bargain price Bought these from the Watford store, to kit out a PC setup. Not being happy with most powered pc speakers I've tried, I went for a tiny amp from Amazon designed for boats, caravans etc cost about ú20. This and the very compact diamonds made a simple sound system for listening to music on the PC. Watching movies on my 23" monitor is also very satisfying Altogether, for a total of about ú60-70 I have a PC sound system that beats any typical normal audio setup for sound quality and volume. Highly recommended I'd be happy to have these little gems in a normal audio system If size and/or price is a factor, get these while they're available Also very good service and help from the Watford staff 14 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby A good quality product at a good price. I visited the Kingston store last week to buy some new speakers. A very cheerful young man called Jermaine was there to help. Nothing was too much trouble and after having a chat to determine which speakers would be suitable for my needs, the transaction was complete without any fuss. Excellent service. No pressure to buy something you are not happy with, customers come first. Would most definitely recommend to others. 12 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great value, superb quality and excellent performance! I'm no audiophile so please don't take this review as gospel! In preparation to sell my house and improve the look for viewings I wanted to clear the speakers from the front room Home Cinema System. I wanted to remove the 5 temporarily and just have two front speakers inside the cabinet. Therefore they needed to be small and being inside the cabinet, rear porting wasn't ideal. I was also bound by strict size limits. To find these front ported, small speakers with what appeared to be good reviews was a god send. They were perfect for my requirements and after installation I couldn't be more pleased. Excellent build quality, controlled powerful bass and great vocals from my Onkyo system, very happy. The price from Richer Sounds was, as usual, excellent, the cheapest you'll find anywhere, the service from the Hanley branch was excellent too. Will probably be back to RS after the move for a whole new system 09 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Cracking Value & Great on Vocals Have these paired up with Arcam 10 amp and they are fab for the little money I paid. Sure they lack real deep down bass but I don't expect this from a 4'' woofer. I plan to add a decent subwoofer very shortly anyway to fill the low end requirements. The mids and highs are very punchy and clear. Lovely fit, feel and finish for the money. Highly recomend. 07 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Good things in small packages Unbelievable sound quality from such a compact speaker. And the price at Richer Sounds makes it a 'no brainer' if you're after a compact bookshelf speaker for a small to medium size room. 25 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby decent tidy speakers good basic speakers. the front comes off so that one can choose how they look. decent sound 23 July 2015
