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 Really room filling resonant sound!! Having not had a "proper" hi-fi system for some years and then getting back into vinyl, I wanted some quality speakers to properly experience my music. A month has passed and I'm so happy with my new Wharfedale speakers, they absolutely do justice to my music collection and the resonant sound really fills the room!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations. I've always been a fan of Wharfedale speakers. My 10.1s on stands seemed pretty good to me though after a few years I wanted larger cones, but couldn't justify the cost of the larger of the Series 11s. With the Diamond 230s and using the same amplifier as previously I found I was hearing a frequency range and instrumental subleties that I hadn't realised I was missing. The slot-loaded bass port at the bottom is a welcome advance on rear ports in my opinion. I was worried that the boxy shape might be a step backwards but with the high-gloss front panels they are very attractive. They are well-finished and satisfyingly heavy. Overall, I am very pleased that I bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridiculous bargain! I've had a lot of good hi-fi products since the late 80's and these are easily one of the best bargains I've come across. For £199 you're getting a set of incredibly well made, good looking, excellent sounding speakers.I'm still running mine in but even now, they have a lovely clear top end, an expressive mid-range and a tight, deep bass. Sound-staging is good too - close your eyes while you're in the middle of them and it's difficult to pinpoint where each speaker is! Bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice full and deep sound. Very happy with my purchase from Richer Excellent sounding speakers and they look good. These Wharfedale floorstanders are well made, producing a smooth treble and a strong bass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Have had Wharfdales since early 70's and these Diamond 230's do not disappoint, good overall sound including a decent bass which is essential for me, and at the current price it would be difficult to find better speakers, in my opinion - quick delivery too.
