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 Amazing sound and looks. Purchased these speakers, to replace my previous ones, which were a lot more expensive. Appearance and build quality is excellent. After a listen in the demo room, the sound quality was also very good, once set up at home, in a larger room, sound quality was even better. Very pleased with this purchase, also a 6 year warranty as well amazing value. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gamble pays off! I made an impulse buy - 60% off and the word "Wharfedale" - would these Diamond 230s, bought unheard online, really be much better than my old stand-mounted Diamond Pro speakers? In a word, "yes"! Audiophiles talk about "soundstage" and these beauties deliver that with great clarity, depth and separation, even paired with my 25 year old Wharfedale 2050A amp and Marantz CD53 cd player. I can hear details that were previously obscured or murky, the only "downside" being the exposing of recording limitations on one or two of my favourite albums. They look good too with a quality finish. Top marks, especially at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic service, fantastic sound I ordered the 230's after reading a lot of reviews. After ordering, the speakers arrived 2 days earlier than stated. They sound amazing and the service I received was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diamond Wharfdale 230 Black I bought this 2 weeks ago and dont normally post reviews but as I took my time buying these speakers which didn't have too many reviews so I hope my review helps others considering these beautiful floorstanding speakers. I will be as honest and as accurate as possible. Firstly the bass. The low frequencies as handled beautifully up to around 40 or 50hz. You will want a subwoofer to dig down into real detail in this range, but don't let that put you off. When these speakers are paired with a good subwoofer the magic really flies cohesively. This just leaves the real low end stuff for the sub and for the 230s to handle everything else. And boy do they handle everything else. The midrange has stacks of details. You can really hear every note, and details you may have proberbly didnt notice even in your favourite songs if you have smaller bookshelf speakers. Vocals are clear and engaging when listening to music in stereo. The delivery and soundstage is first class for the price and really fills the room. The high end frequencies are also excellent too. There is a good sense of seperation between the speakers and great crossover between the front 3 with my Kef sub. Over to movies then. I said this would be honest. You need a centre speaker, I find that without using a centre speaker the vocals were a tad lost and difficult to understand, introducing a centre speaker isn't a work around it was a complete fix. Without it you get a sense these speakers are musical first but once you have a centre speaker in the mix it becomes a first rate home cinema experience too. You may need to fiddle with speaker level volumes and maybe increase the centre channel a bit depending on your room size, layout and speaker positioning. After about an hour of fiddling with these settings I know have speakers that perform equally as impressively in both stereo for music and a 5.1 and 7.1 setup. To sum up if you want these for music dont hesitate if you already have a sub. If not consider if you can spend a bit more with Richersounds and get a subwoofer. If this is for movies get a sub to go with it and a centre speaker, at the moment I'm just using a small kef egg which makes all the difference but il upgrade to a larger speaker too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wow Speaker System No regrets at all . I bought this pair of speakers two weeks ago. I run it with my Yamaha A-S501. The bass fantastic. I love the way the tweeters behave also. This is a high class pair of speakers at a very low price. I highly recomend it to anybody who wants value for money
