”There’s a sense of power and scale we’d normally expect from a much larger box.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

The legend continues

It was back in 1981 when the Wharfedale Diamond first redefined expectations of small speakers. The original model proved that a small speaker didn't necessarily need to sound 'small', that a budget speaker could sound full-bodied without being intrusive. The latest Diamond 220 follows on from the highly successful 121 model and has already received an excited response.

New cabinet for improved sound
New to the Wharfedale Diamond 220 is a sandwich cabinet design. Rather than the simple chipboard and MDF used by the previous Diamond 121, the new 220 uses particle board sandwiched by MDF on either side. This gives superb rigidity and damping properties, helping to further reduce the already low levels of distortion. A further benefit is the smooth MDF construction provides a cleaner surface for the veneer; meaning a smoother finish all round.

Ported design
Also new is the gloss finished baffle, making the speakers far more pleasing to the eye. As before, the 220 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: you don't have to take wall positioning into account.

New drive units, class-leading sound
The bass driver is formed from woven Kevlar with ribs for added rigidity, but has a revised magnet system for tighter control of the sound. Vocals still sound incredibly realistic, and the bass is upbeat and never lags. 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, as well as providing loads of detail. Put together, the overall sound quality is still fantastically well-balanced.

With its latest upgrades the Wharfedale Diamond 220 has truly come of age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers - and brilliant sound. The speakers were a replacement for a pair on my system which I thought were reasonably OK. However the difference was astounding with both treble and bass set to zero. The detail and quality of sound is exactly as described in the reviews and the price and service from Richer sounds continues to be excellent. Many Thanks to a great team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big sound from a small speaker. These are superlative speakers that are more powerful than their size might suggest. They are perfect for my medium sized lounge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speakers and Perfect Shop. Bought these speakers from richer sounds and am very impressed with both the speakers and the shop. Firstly I cannot recommend richer sounds to highly they were extremely helpful even when I got my card details Mixed up they are a pleasure to deal with.delivery could not be quicker even at weekend. Now the speakers,the diamond 220s are everything I expected and more the sound quality is excellent both in the Top end and the bass response from Mike oldfield to j.s.bach you cannot fault them. This is the second pair of wharfdales I have bought from R.Ss and I will definitely be going back when I need anything else to enhance My hi fi set up. Thanks Richer Sounds you have done me proud again.
