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 thirtieth 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.

At their original launch price of £100 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 3 out of 5 by from Muddy sounding and unbalanced I've tried these in a couple of rooms with three very different amps. For the price I wasn't expecting much, but these sound dull and muddled compared to new expensive (Tannoy DC6T) and old cheap (JPW mini monitors) speakers. Possibly OK for surround sound use, but I'd be worried by lack of clarity for speech.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice I decided to set up a home cinema and thought I would take a chance on the Diamond 9.0s for my rear surrounds. I must admit I wasn't expecting anything fantastic for the money I paid for them but I have been more than pleased with them. I have no doubt there are better sounding speakers that cost a lot more, but I can honestly say these have more than exceeded my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound for such a cheap small speaker Bought these in Plymouth Branch today as speakers for a second system in my dining room. To say I'm amazed by the quality of the sound is an understatement, the bass is surprisingly low for such a small enclosure and the treble is not over bright and they go loud. Not the least fatiguing for long listening sessions unlike some small speakers can be. At the price these have to be one of the best Hi-Fi bargains around. Would not hesitate to recommend these speakers to anybody looking for a cheap pair for a second system or even a starter system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly big sound with wide sound stage I bought these for a small technics micro system and I was surprised how big they sounded for a small speaker. Punchy bass and great treble not over bearing. Good timing. Well made for 39 pounds you cannot go wrong with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds like a proper speaker I picked up a pair of these from the Kingston store where Daniel and Sunil opened the door after 6pm after I had reserved them at the unbeatable price of £39! Got them home for my Brennan B2 (which RS used to sell) and they are perfect and sound like floorstanders many times the price. A long time fan of RS since the late 1970’s. Never disappointed in all the decades since. Looking forward to a visit from Dave (Guildford) to connect my B2 to my surround sound system. I’m disabled and find the after sales service extremely useful. Thanks guys you have literally changed my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good grief! £39 for hifi speakers.... I am rarely lost for words but these are astonishing. Paired with a decade old "entry" Denon micro hifi (30RMS per channel?), I am listening to a Luther van Dross CD with the tone set to "neutral" and volume @ 25 out of 40 (=max) in a 4x5 metre living room with plenty of sound absorbing furnishings. Separation of sounds is amazing. Bass, mid-range and top end all great. Some have said there is a lack of bass but if I go to Bass +4db it is too much for me. The front port is a great feature. However, push the amp to vol 30/40 and they start to suffer but then this too loud for me anyway - note they are not yet "run in". If you like loud punchy music, perhaps look for something bigger?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for the price and size. I bought these for use with an Onkyo CD515DAB mini hifi for use in my study. The first thing to bare in mind is that they are probably a little smaller than you'd expect! The drivers are a mere 4". The general build and presentation is very good and very classic looking. Don't get me wrong, the bass and general presence will not knock your socks off, so I'd not use them in a big room, but for a mini hifi in a study they are superb! The sound is very "monitor" like in that it's neutral. If driven directly with all the bypass switches active on the Onkyo the sound is very natural. You really get the feeling of hearing the music exactly as meant. If you like Apple earbuds, you'll like these. For the price point as well I think you'd be hard pressed to beat them. Go on - you know you want a set.
