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 Best value for money ever! Great speakers for the money, crisp, clear sound at any volume. Heavy to move around though so watch your back

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sound and great looking I bought these the a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier with them or the service from my Leeds branch. I had been considering new speakers for sometime and I was a little worried that I hadn't listened to them before buying. Joe at Leeds said they would be Ok for my system, a Cambridge amp and Project turntable, and advised on interconnects. His recommendation actually saved me some money. Less than 24hrs later I have them set up in my living room and the sound was mind blowingly different from my Gales. They are very easy to drive with my amp with low volume still producing bags of detail and a good bass. In my room they sounded best about 10 inch from the wall. Turn the volume up and the sound is spine tingling. My vinyl and Cds all have benefited with a more detailed and easy to listen to sound. I did try the speakers through a Pioneer network amp as well but the Cambridge had much more accuracy and sharpness. Some drum sounds through my Pioneer sounded slightly fluffy, the Gales on the other hand work great with it. So overall absolutely happy with these Wharfedale speakers and the guys at Leeds. New CD player next please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds extraordinary! All my albums sound as if I'm hearing them for the first time again! Phenomenal sound

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound ! I recently resurrected my old turntable etc. and have been gradually upgrading. The final piece was the speakers. They’ve made such a huge difference; not sure my vinyl ever sounded so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant speakers Bought the Diamond 230 before Christmas .The speakers arrived packaged in substantial cartons.Upon removing the speakers from said cartons it was quite obvious these were quality units, the external finish was a joy to behold. I connected them to my "Marantz" amp. Standard wiring, sounded good but wiring them different (bi-wire) made such difference. Very nice black gloss finish and sound great at low mid and high ranges, incredible, in a word. I would highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge Improvement over the DX-2 I have owned these speakers for just under a month, purchased as an upgrade to my DX-2's. The main reason for the upgrade was so I fit dolby atmos speakers on top, obviously my DX-2's were too small. The sound improvement is very noticeable, both with movies and gaming (PS5). They even could make my subwoofer redundant as they bass from these speakers is exceptional. These speakers are also finished to a very high standard. Highly recommended and excellent for the price. As always, Richer Sounds customer service was exceptional, ordered at 3pm and arrived next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New home audio set up I recently purchased a Denon AVRX550BT and a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 230 speakers to link up to my TV and turntable. I have to say Richer Sounds Chester were excellent from start to finish and beyond. I had several lengthy calls with the guys there during which they listened to my needs and advised me a selection of products within my price range but there was never any hard sell. Once I had decided on what I wanted they helped out with organised speedy delivery. After delivery they were on hand to give advice over the phone during the set up. A week or so after setting up I had a few more questions and the guys in Chester spent another 30 min call talking me through my questions and fine tuning the system. A truly excellent customer focused team and an excellent experience throughout. I would thoroughly recommend Richer Sounds and Chester in particular, if you want to be looked after and make sure you get the right equipment for your needs please use this team.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Look and sound impressive Early days, as I am still building my system, but these look to have been a good buy, especially with the 6 year warranty from Richer Sounds. If I had a negative it would be the design of the feet and the instructions which seem to relate to a different model.
