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 for less than half that price, the Diamond 9.0 speakers are a gem of a deal!

Rated 4.8 out of 5áby 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Speakers to last the wharferdale speakers are a great addition to complete you hi-fi with great output sound that it is a pleasure to listen to , with no stress and easy connection to set up, i highly recommend this product, thanks to the richer sounds staff for an easy transaction with my purchase. believe me they are the best. 07 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Way better than expected Purchased these as a "make do" temporary pair for a secondary system and have been blown away by how good these can sound. Though very compact they manage to sound big, with a convincing, but not overblown or stodgy bass. They image well and present a clean sound, but need partnering well to get the best out of them. A warm or smooth front end will make these sound lacking in sparkle or openess, but put a neutral to bright front end with them (via a decent amp) and they will sparkle and give a sound that deserves to be called high fidelity. Don't skimp on speaker leads either, QED 79 strand works well. One negative; the terminals are fiddly. Best to invest in a set of banana plugs. They sound better as they break in. 03 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Small package, big sound. Excellent service, from Richer Sounds and DPD. Great value speakers now installed as rears in my home theatre system, upgrading from the Onkyo package ones. They will need a bit of running in to achieve the full tonal range associated with the legendary Diamond range but even now the sound quality is impressive.. If you're looking for a compact quality budget speaker, look no further. 29 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Lovely speaker for the price.... But I think I should have spent a little more and gone for a better speaker As good as these are, they are slightly lacking at the top end treble and as I have a sub, this does seem to be a little lacking They produce a lovely sound but I think I will use these as rears and get the mission mx1 soon For ú40 though they are a super speaker! Although I note the price has gone up recently! 26 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby better than the price Bought these today Friday 21st March from the richersounds Belfast store - admittedly for a bit less than the price listed here, however even at the higher price would recommend these little speakers. I had been using other speakers however their sound quality was never ideal - perhaps as they unlike the Whafedales were not magnetically shielded. Work brilliantly connected to a Pioneer AV Amp that has both my TV and Nad CD player connected to it. 21 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Speaker I got these in-store for ú39! They sound really great, I have them on a big wooden bookshelf about 3m apart and in that location they sound amazing. I use an 80's Pioneer amp which I think is 50wpc (hard to find the specs on it), and I haven't been able to turn the volume right up, at 75% they are LOUD! But still very very clear, with powerful driving bass that punches and vibrates through the whole room. It sounds jaw dropping. (I only do this when the neighbours are out!). At normal volumes they are fantastic and make me want to listen to all of my music to hear how good it sounds. I happened to catch a Radio 3 broadcast of some experimental sound art on digital radio, the textures, feeling of space and clarity of sound were out of this world. 24 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Superb Sound An excellent compact speaker at a ridiculous price. I remember these speakers being available for ú100 not so long ago. Yes they have been superseded but as long as these speakers are available grab a bargain and you will not be disappointed. Very good build quality, although the veneer is a little thin and will chip if roughly handled. The overall sound is very impressive with bass that doesn't sound forced, largely due to the front port which allows the speakers to be put tight against the wall.. You cannot expect top of the range sound for such a bargain price, but they give MUCH better performance than many provided with mini/midi hi-fi systems. I have no hesitation in recommending the Wharfedale 9.0 if you have a tight budget and want the best sound for your money. 20 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby Crazy good for the money. Tempted by the absurdly low price and diminutive size I bought these on a whim. These are for the stereo section of my small surround system. I use large vintage Tannoys and AR speakers for my main system so I have a fair point of reference. I am extremely impressed by these little fellas. They are crystal clear with good imaging. I find the over-exerted boxy bass mildly irritating but you can't have it all. How they can sell them for 40 quid I don't know! Of course they're not going to stand up to large speakers that cost 10/20 times the cost but they are very pleasant and I totally recommend them for a mini/second/surround system. A steal! 06 November 2013
