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 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful speakers,stunning I purchased these speakers about 2 weeks ago.The reason why I bought them as I already had bookshelf speakers by Wharfedale,but wanted to upgrade to upright speakers and looking into these Diamond 230 the look on them was stunning and the way they sound is excellent and the colour of black goes great with the rest of my system. Also what they cost I think is great and I would highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Budget price but not budget sound Purchased the Wharfdale Diamond 230's last month in a flash sale as part of my home cinema upgrade from the Marantz NR1200 2.1 AV Receiver to the Yamaha RX-V4A 5.1 AV Receiver. Straight out of the box they were hooked up to the Marantz and the difference between the 230's and the Q-Acoustics 3020i was immediately apparent. The 230's revealed details that the 2030i's was just missing. Having run them in for a month hooked up to both the NR1200 and RX-V4A, the quality of the sound has only improved. The bass has become fuller, rich and punchy with good timing. Mid range is clear with vocals not buried in the background. Treble is crisp and bright but without sibilance. Cymbals now crash instead of fizzing. As for the stated frequency response, it is not vastly different in the real world; 49 Hz- 23kHz. Because of the downward firing port, the positioning of the 230's is more forgiving than rear ported speakers, though it still pays to experiment. Overall, even at their full price, the 230's are a value for money purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a bargain! I bought these floorstanders after I received an email from the VIP club which is well worth joining! So got the speakers for £250 not £299. What a bargain- the construction is so solid I was surprised how solid and the biwireable gold plated binding posts accepted banana plugs easily. The floor spikes and cups are high quality and the speakers look great! Nothing to complain about at all- the sound is smooth with plenty of bass extension! I put the tv on to break them in and it was the music on adverts I noticed initially- very tuneful and good solid stereo imagery. Voice and vocals in general are superb and once watching 4K these speakers just blew my mind! And I say that as this is not my main HiFi system however the power,stereo and musicality with film was outstanding using a Sony STR DN 1080 receiver and 4K player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers. I bought these speakers to shake the house but they are much more than I expected. They sound really good. Nice treble, powerful bass, sweet mids. I'm very happy with them.
