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 Awesome speakers Bought these two weeks ago and have changed my old 90s kenwood stereo immeasurably, the sound of my records have been bought back to life, and they Look stunning in the room. Customer service was second to none, called me when they were ready to be picked up, told me where the loading bay in solihull was so I didn't get a ticket and helped me with them to the car, first class

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous speakers !!! Purchased the 230s without hearing them. Recommended by friends and after a good look at very positive reviews o n the r s Web site, decided to buy ! I have a pair of dali zensor 1s at the moment. These 230s blow them away. Love the sound, amazing. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full flavour sound I needed a new set of speakers as my Mission one's were 15 years old. I have put these in my music room and studio. The sound is fantastic even though they have not been fully run in yet, so the sound will get even better, the more music I play. Very happy and satisfied with these speakers, especially the price. You would be 'hard pressed' to find better. As the title suggests, just like with food; you want to taste all the ingredients, and as music is the food of love, that's exactly what you get here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute bargain I've had these for a week or so now and I am seriously impressed for the money. I had a pair of old Tannoy Mercury Customs which were fine but lacked bass and occassionaly struggled up high. The 230s are great. With a limited budget, I was not sure if my little Tangent Ampster would be enough but seems to work great. Took a bit of rearanging of furniture in a small to medium sized room to give them the space they need but so far, I'm super happy. Bass is nice and full with techno and drum n bass without overpowering the mids and highs. I haven't listened to much classical since buying them but I don't think there will be any issues. They cope fine with Anna Meredith's Fibs album so, I think they'll be good for most things they'll come up against.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome. These speakers replaced some 20+ year old kenwood speakers. They have given my same kenwood system a new lease of life. Even my vinyl collection that I dug out sound great now. I plan on renewing my receiver at some point for one with Dolby Atmos or higher. But until I've redone my lounge I'm well happy with the quality of sound from these speakers. They'll allow me to expand on my system.
