Standing close to the top of the Diamond range, the Diamond 157 is a powerful speaker that doesn't compromise on quality.

TWIN BASS CONES FOR A POWERFUL RESPONSE


Whatever the type of music, the Wharfedale Diamond 159 makes listening to music a truly engaging experience. Most strikingly, the power and scale of these speakers can't fail to impress. Standing over a metre tall and with a depth of nearly 40cm, these are substantially sized speakers. This speaker volume gives the Diamond 157s a big, expansive sound with excellent bass depth. In addition to this, the twin, 160mm, woofer units ensure the bass always remains powerful and sustained

ALL NEW DRIVE UNITS FOR A QUALITY SOUND

Despite the powerful bass, the Diamond 157 is far from being a one-trick pony. A separate mid-range unit ensures that vocals remain just as powerfully a part of the mix as the bass is. All the drive units are also of excellent quality. The new woofers (bass and mid) are formed from woven Kevlar with ribs for added rigidity. When combined, this gives the speaker a superbly accurate and precise sound quality. 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 sense of realism that you might not expect from a speaker of this class.

ALL NEW CABINET WITH SLOT-LOADED DISTRIBUTION PORT FOR POWERFUL BASS

For the first time on any Diamond-range speaker, the 157 features a new style of bass reflex porting. Rather than using a simple front or rear mounted port, the 157 ports the bass via an integral plinth. 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. Finally, the speakers are bi-wirable, allowing you the option of using a 4-cored cable for even greater detail.

If it's power and scale you're after, without compromising on quality, the Wharfedale 157 makes a formidable choice.

To get the best from these premium speakers, we recommend speaker cables from premium suppliers Audioquest, Atlas, Chord and QED. Custom made lengths and terminations are also available. Please ask in store for advice.
