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 4.7 out of 5áby 92 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby using as computer speakers Running soundcard out to Topping T21 T class amp , into Wharfedale diamond 9s. Superb listening. youtube comes alive , even my teenagers are happy with the set up. Highly recommended., very good service at the Norwich store. 14 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great sound and an absolute bargain Many years ago I had some diamonds and they cost me approx 4 times what these cost. Great sound, a lovely compact size and look the business. 07 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great speakers for the money I bought these to mount in the rear of my classic car (MGB GT). A bit of an unusual thing to do I know, but as I wanted to install a cost effective, compact, but good quality sound system I thought why not give it a try? First off I tested them in my bedroom with my separates system and they sounded capable, lacking a bit of bass maybe but that could be forgiven given the size. Once installed in the car the speakers sounded full, with plenty of detail and a good level of power handling. I think these speakers definitely suit a smaller space. Overall, very impressed an highly recommended. 07 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5áby great price What can i say about these speakers from renowned speaker company wharfdale pictures don't do the design any justice really nice sleek looking purchased an upgrade to my rear surrounds more than capable and an improvement on my 10 year old teac and all for 40 pound what more could you want. 30 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby For the money, why wouldn't you? Bought to be cheap rears in my surround sound but have had them hooked up as the fronts and was really surprised at what ú40 can buy you. Would be super pair of speakers for a bedroom set up. 28 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby What a top deal! Initially, I was a little sceptical of how these would sound given their small size but needed to fit a system into a small room. The bottom line is if you're after a good quality set of speakers and are on a budget I'm confident that with the current deal on these have to be the best value speakers on the market. They would be cheap at twice the price. They give a wonderfully lush, full bodied sound and do a remarkable impression of a much larger set of speakers. These won't shake your house (not surprisingly given their small size) but the bass extension is much better than you'd think. I expect these would perhaps not sound their best if partnered with warm sounding equipment but my Pioneer A400 is on the less warm side and suits them down to the ground. For the money these are astonishingly good and won't disappoint even if you are prepared to spend more. 19 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Superb, especially at tthe price The sound is pretty good for a small speaker. Bass not greatly extended, but it's there all the same. Using on a desktop powered by a small SMSL SA50 Class T Amplifier. No stands as yet - just a small book underneath :) 17 May 2015
