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.

Rated 4.7 out of 5áby 98 reviewers.
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
Rated 5 out of 5áby For less than 50 quid you can not go wrong with them I used my VIP account so paid ú49.95 and for this price they are just great. Well, they are great even for much more. I am very pleased. The sound, the performance, they are just great. Slightly small, but that is even better for me. Overall I am very happy. 13 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Cracking Little Speakers If you unsure on these speakers dont be as they are great. I sold some dali's to a friend & bought these as replacements for x 2 fronts in a 7.1 setup & was a bit afraid they wouldnt live up to the dali zensor 1's. So I installed these into my 7.1 setup & that presence is back again after I was using a 5.1 setup for a bit. I think I am gonna replace the rears too with these but all in all for the price you cant go wrong here. top customer service as always at the Solihull branch. cheers lads! 13 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Small but big sound These speakers have a beautiful sound and are amazing value for money. 09 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby A great pair of speakers for small rooms at moderate levels I was particularly impressed with how crisp these speakers are. Even with a cheap car amp they give a great rounded sound with a good balance. I was told not to expect anything from the bass response but am perfectly happy with these as they give a better balance than some PC speaker I have paid over ú200 for. Great bargain for ú40! 05 July 2015
