Speaker legends don't get much bigger than the Wharfedale Diamond 9.0.

The original small hi-fi speaker
It's hard to believe that the original Wharfedale Diamond is now past its fortieth 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.

Solid construction
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. Equally impressive are the drive units. A soft dome tweeter gives the clarity and smoothness of sound you'd expect from a more expensive speaker, while the woofer cone uses a carbon fibre type weave to offer extremely taut and responsive bass.

Surprisingly powerful
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.

Hi-fi connections
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.

Even at their original price, 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superspeaker Bought yesterday in a second hand shop. Only £12. I connected them together with a tube amplifier, a really good CD player and a tube DAC. Didn't have high hopes that they would reproduce any particularly good sound. Imagine my surprise. They play really well. High end. Beautiful, well balanced nothing stands out. Congratulations to all of you who have purchased these. They play much better than they cost. Don't be afraid to use them with many times more expensive electronics. 8 stars as rating. A pure work of art.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Bookshelf speakers With Excellent Sound. Purchased this week to add to my Cambridge audio Azur 540 r v3 Surround sound amplifier very easy too set up and adjust the Bass and Treble then set and forget. Perfect sound for such small bookshelf speakers and also excellent value for Money , All the Gentlemen at Richer sounds Newcastle were brilliant as usual. I am more than happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I bought this set from the Stockport shop and they are great, I've paired them with a Panasonic sa-pmx802 and they have a crisp, clear sound in all ranges of music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome As an audiophile you learn what basic sound requirements should be in a speaker. Wharfedale deserve their multi star awards for budget speakers, the are clear with the right amount of bass, I was surprised how good these sound, punching well above its cost £59. Big rooms would be a problem though. Iv got them in the bedroom and the fill the room with more capsulated sound than some £300 plus speakers, I had the brands 220s in the lounge, so I knew they would be well established continuous replicated speaker, manufactured to a good standard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll be "blown away" with the sound quality My son bought a pair of Diamon 9.0's so he could play his vinyl through the amp he "borrowed" from me, I was very impressed with the sound so I bought a pair for "the radio shack" I thought I would try them out in the lounge connected to my Denon RD-40 receiver/CD player. Now you have to consider these are quite small speakers so I didn't expect too much. To be honest...I've been "blown away" with the sound quality. The base is very solid and treble is quite bright and smooth. Playing the track "Enas Mythos" from Nana Mouskouri's "passport" album (Vinyl) was quite revealing it was almost as if the kettle drum was in the room with you. OK it's not going to be as good as a speaker 2 or 3 times the price but for £59 it's an absolute bargan

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looks, good sound. A small good sounding speakers with nice looks. I highly recommend to pair them with a subwoofer for the best experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Amazing Value I bought these to replace some Acoustic Energy Speakers which I think years back cost around £200. I plan a serious upgrade in the future and wanted something to keep me going. I am playing a Marantz MCR611 through the Diamonds. The sound for me is very natural and definitely not "tinny". Don't be put off by the price.
