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 73 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Classic small speaker with a great sound Hooked up to my PC via a small Lepai amp from Amazon Makes listening to music and watching movies a treat. Much better quality than traditional PC Speakers, and cheaper, too! 21 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby COME FULL CIRCLE 30 YEARS ON I had a pair of Diamonds 30 years ago when I first started to build my system, and of course over time my budget grew and so did my speakers! Now 30 years on and 3 house moves later, the room my system is now in will not lend itself to large floor standers, and the boss said she didn't want wall mounted speakers. I thought I would go back to a pair of Diamonds with a view to trying them out again, I'm so glad I did. The fit, the sound quality and the value for money fantastic! Felt like being a kid again, even put my old tunes on!! 21 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Budget Speakers Would recommend these, almost as good as those costing ú60 more. 08 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby Does the job well I've had this make before some time ago and it's nice to see standards have not changed 06 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Wow,amazing little speakers Really impressed by these little boxes.Using them as surround speakers,they never let me down.Gonna get another set to use on as a centre.Would be great as main speakers in a small space. 05 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby great bookshelf speaker Brilliant speakers and a brilliant price. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Thanks richer sounds. Nuff said 03 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great sound started buying cd's again and needed to replace my old speakers for a much clearer and richer sound, (pardon the pun) so bought these Whafedale speakers and they have lived up to their reputation, beautiful crisp sound with clear midrange and low range sounds.. 02 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby For this price, it's bargain! Went to the shop in Kingston (thanks guys) wanting to buy replacement for my old Denons bookshelves. I was looking for cheap floor-standers like Tibo EDGE 200, but they didn't have them, so I've asked for some good bookshelves to compare them with my Denons. We picked CAMBRIDGE AUDIO SX60 and WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 9.0 I was hearing from time to time. After small audition, I was blown by WD 9.0 to the point, that I forgot about my front speaker replacement (but I got stands for them, they just start to sing now) and ordered next day 2 pairs (4 speakers) for my surround replacement. Best part was that: I still need Centre speaker to replace another Pioneer S-11 and I though, for time being, I can use one of WD9.0 (got space for it) from surround. It was 10x better than anything else I had before. After reading more about it, majority of centre speakers are not up to the scratch and is much better to have all surround system with the same speakers. Brilliant! I got 3rd pair next day. ;-) 28 March 2015
