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 4 out of 5 by from So impressive I've had these speakers a couple of weeks and I'm very happy with them. They have a lovely, rounded bass sound which I like very much. It really complimenmts the cellos and basses in the Agnus Dei of the Missa Solemnis (NPO, Carlo Maria Giuliani) and really puts across the firepower in Martha Argerich's playing of the Chopin Funeral March. Also very good at Bluetooth streaming and acting as sound system to my TV (the soundtrack toLine of Duty is superb here), but where they seem to really come into their own is with vinyl. Loads of detail on Marvin Gaye's Midnight Love album that I hadn't noticed before, and Rachmaninov's Isle of the Dead (LSO, Previn) just, well, comes to life...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exchanged I purchased these speakers and was impressed with the overall sound quality. They do have a lot of bass and lower end which may be to much depending on your circumstances. My son complained (his bedroom is above the living room) about the bass when it was played at a relatively low level so maybe a consideration if you are living in a flat or terraced house etc. Unfortunately there were a couple of slight dents on one of the speakers and I therefore decided to swap them for Fyne 230. Richard managed to organise this at short notice and the swap was done the following day through the couriers (they took the old ones whilst delivering the new ones).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic value Great speakers. Upgraded from smaller bookshelf wharfedales, which are also great, but now used as rear surround. These 230s have great sound, lots of bass if you wish, no need for a subwoofer with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound at a reasonable price! I was looking to build up a new sound system and wanted a quality amp to start with. These speakers give a full sound from a reliable maker. The speakers stand next to the tv and arrived in time to watch and listen to Glastonbury!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound and vision Great sound range - good definition in high and low registers. Stylish too - well-proportioned and easy on the eye.
