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 Great Sound I bought these speakers just over a week ago and I couldn't be happier, they were replacing a pair of wharfedales I bought over 30 years ago!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sound and vision Not had them very long, and unfortunately using them in an acoustically 'demanding' environment. But they do sound very good indeed and they are beautifully finished. And at a very good price too. Bought online, but I always head for Richer Sounds :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade without the pricetag Bought these a few weeks back now to upgrade my system, along with a new Cambridge audio sub. Sub was a few days to arrive but the sound quality without it was a huge upgrade from my eltax floorstanders and sub. Such depth and clarity through the full tonal range that sounds way above their price point. Excellent speakers, excellent brand, excellent staff advice in store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I''ve had these a couple of months now and they get better with every use. For the price I doubt you could get a better pair of speakers. Set up is Sony STR-DH790 amp with Wharfedale Diamond 230 main speakers with the high channels bi-amped, Dali Zensor Pico's as surround speakers, Monitor C150 centre and Q Acoustics Q3060S bass bin. Set up as 5.1. A bit of a mongrel set up but all works and sound great together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best budget floorstanders Best budget floorstanders for the money the sound is truly fantastic I have very budget system whaferdales 230 onkyo 9010 amp and onkyo 7030 cd player and to be honest the sound is amazing plenty of detail across all frequencies, sound has good weight and balance, bass is deep and heights are very clear. Guys when I listen to old Metallica albums on those I cant stop smiling so much joy :) they sound much better after burning in give them like 6 months you will hear true potential of 230s

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sounding speakers brought these speakers when on offer to replace my old yamaha speakers being used on an Onkyo TX-SR333 after 10 mins of setting them up i was amazed at how deep the bass was and much clearer the sound was both on playing music and watching movies on netflix/amazon on 5.1 surround. however if you want the lower end of the bass spectrum for movies id recommend using a seperate sub but overall i was very pleased with these speakers.
