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 Fantastic sound from a speaker at this price These speakers were delivered yesterday and they seem well made with good quality drivers fitted. As others have already said these speakers are very good especially at the price Richer Sounds are selling them for. What hifi tested these speakers at £500 and originally gave them 5 stars although they dropped it to 4 stars as newer speakers got tested. For the money you will be hard pushed to find a better speaker. Take time to position the speakers don't put them right up against a wall and try to angle them towards the listening position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value for money Had these a couple of weeks now and they sound fantastic. I'm using them with a pioneer av receiver in stereo. (No subwoofer or surround speakers) they are very clear and easily fill my room. Highly recommended. Plus great service again from the guys at the Cardiff store

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound (and good looks as well) I bought the 230’s to replace a pair of Diamond 9.1’s with the speakers bi-wired to a Pioneer amp. The sound is unbelievable for the price. Highly recommended!
