A step-up from the award-winning 220, the Wharfedale Diamond 230 brings added bass into the mix.

Strong bass with style

Ideal for medium-sized rooms, the Wharfedale Diamond 230 offers the deep, powerful sound you'd expect from floorstanding speakers whilst keeping the overall dimensions relatively compact. Using a second, dedicated bass woofer, the Diamond 230 punches hard. Not only does this second woofer unit increase the depth and volume of bass, it also helps to 'fill out' the sound at lower volumes, making this an ideal speaker for use at all volume levels.

Class-leading sound
As with other Diamond 200-series speakers, the woofers are formed from woven Kevlar and feature textured ribbing for added rigidity. A revised magnet system gives even tighter control of the sound. When combined, it gives the Diamond 230 a precise, accurate sound with a crisp mid-range and true sense of realism. At the other end of the scale the treble unit is surrounded by a deeply dished waveguide. This helps to improve the imaging and 'width' of sound, making it easier to pick out individual instruments. The treble also provides loads of detail without ever sounding unrefined. Put together, the overall sound quality is fantastically well-balanced and natural with a solid bass to underpin the music.

New cabinet for improved sound and finish
New to the Wharfedale Diamond 230 is a sandwich cabinet design. Rather than the simple chipboard and MDF used by the previous Diamond 155, the new 230 uses particle board sandwiched by MDF on either side. This new type of construction gives superb rigidity and damping properties, helping to further reduce the already low levels of distortion. A further benefit is the smooth, MDF construction that offers up a cleaner surface for the veneer to be applied to; meaning a smoother finish all round. Also new is the gloss finished baffle, making the speakers far more pleasing to the eye. As before, the Diamond 230 ports the bass via an integral plinth, rather than the more usual front or rear holes. This not only provides a more efficient and even bass output but also makes the speaker easier to place as you don't have to take wall positioning into account as much.

With its effortless all-round ability, the Wharfedale Diamond 230 is hard to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Exactly what I would expect from richer sounds in way of service etc and the quality of the speakers is great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding with good build quality I bought my Wharfedale 230's about three weeks ago, and they sound great. I quite like the styling, and the fact that they have a downward facing port so you can place the speakers close to the wall without sacrificing the bass response....very handy for the smaller room. The speakers are quite high efficiency, and drive well on my Marantz 1509 AV receiver, giving a nice bright and punchy sound. As an entry level floor stander, I think the 230's are hard to beat. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent budget floor speakers I am quite happy with the speakers. I have played one of my older albums which is in mono and the speaker out of which it was playing sounded very good for a 1941 recording.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic looks I’ve had these wired up for a few weeks. For movies etc they’re great. Thoroughly overshadowed by the Q acoustic centre that I have. So I actually wished I pushed the budget higher and got the Q acoustic floor standers. Still very happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bargain I bought the speakers some time back at a bargain price of 150 pounds. The speakers from appearance and sound its just out of this world. The punchy crispy sound. I owe it to Richer sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound Bought these speakers a few weeks ago. The finish and overall quality is very good, but the sound simply amazed be, the bass and midrange are superp, but there trump card has to be the vocals.. Outstanding. Trust me it you buy these speakers along with some good quality speaker cable you will not be disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really room filling resonant sound!! Having not had a "proper" hi-fi system for some years and then getting back into vinyl, I wanted some quality speakers to properly experience my music. A month has passed and I'm so happy with my new Wharfedale speakers, they absolutely do justice to my music collection and the resonant sound really fills the room!!
