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 4 out of 5 by from Great speaker questionable attachments After unpacking the speakers I was very happy with the look, size and main speaker design. Once unpacked I noticed they came with screw in feet that needed attaching, weirdly they’re very sharp cone shaped feet that would damage my wooden floor, so as instructed it says to use the included feet pads with them. Strangely the pads do not attach to the feet they sit on the floor separate to the speakers. This is a very odd design as it’s very difficult to get them into place (we gave up) as there are no edges to hold the speaker up easily, then they are easily dislodged if you want to move the speaker. Why the soft pads do not screw directly to the speakers or even attach to the feet is very odd. Be careful they are very sharp. Outside of the odd feet design the sound quality is very good even at higher volume levels when I was mixing music the quality retains between the highs and lows that I would expect. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed These speakers are well built for the money and they sound great really impressed.I have paired them with a Yamaha as501 amp and they deliver plenty of bass I thought I may need a sub but no need . The speakers take a while to run in but when they are you will be rewarded with clear treble and good bass they were delivered by dpd and the service from richer sounds was spot on highly recommended thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wharfedale Diamond 230 purchase. I wanted some floorstanding speakers that didn’t break the bank, having reviewed a number of speakers I decided on the Wharfedale 230. I had some diamond 10.1 a number of years ago I was quite impressed with them for the size of speaker. The 230 are big and boxy and produce a great sound, plenty of base good mids and treble have give my hifi system a new lease of life. I would recommend them for any budget/ mid hifi system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality sound and nice looking I bought these some months ago, to add to my Onkyo TX-8250 receiver , the quality of the sound from them is brilliant . I have used Wharfedale speakers for many years, these replacing Wharfedale 220 bookshelf speakers ( those moved to the upstairs Hi-Fi ) I have always found Wharfedale to be first class. They are referred to as entry level floor speakers which I find somewhat condescending, suggesting not that great quality, nothing could be further from the truth as these speakers handle the bass, mid frequencies and the high end superbly well. Ok yes you can pay a lot more and get better speakers, I suspect have to pay quite a bit more to truly get a noticeable difference and then you would also need to update all the other components of your set up to get any benefit. Also they look very attractive in a room and are well made. As usual. Richer sounds staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable, the only place to buy Hi-Fi or TV in my opinion.
