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! Bought these about 2 weeks ago, paired them up with a Harman Kardon Receiver. The sound is truly great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic high quality speaker at bargain price! Having has the speakers for over 2 weeks now I am thoroughly impressed. Construction is of fantastic quality with flawless finish. With respect to sound quality, the Wharfedales are a powerful pair of speakers. They seem best suited to more industrial music that focuses on percussion/bass, since they did seem alittle 'intense' on first listen, lacking some subtlety in more delicate sections/genres of music. However, give a few weeks to break in, and the characteristic is far less pronounced. The wharfedales settle into a brilliant all round speaker that can't be beaten at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wharfedale DIAMOND 230 Bought the speakers online and they got delivered on time with DPD. Impeccable packaging. What can one say about the 230s, I don't think you'll find anything better at this price, they look good, they sound good. I'm running them through an old school Yamaha AX-400 and even though there is no SUB, the low frequencies are well balanced with a decent umph. I use them to listen to vinyl, watch Netflix and play PS4 (not the best setup for the PS4 and Netflix as I gotta run the TV out through the amp with an adaptor).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be Better Bought a pair of Diamond 230's from Richer Sounds to freshen up my separates system. They were far cheaper than Amazon (which is pretty amazing), delivery was prompt and the speakers came very well packaged. Very pleased with the whole transaction and the speakers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Speakers I purchased these speakers two weeks ago and for the price they are amazing. A good all round sound from bottom to middle to top. I am only driving them with a Denon Mini-System but sound excellent. I'm sure with more expensive equipment they would sound fabulous. Well done Wharfedale for producing such a good speaker at such a good price !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary quality for the price Wonderful warm sound also providing great clarity. I would have expected to pay far more for this and I imagine they would do justice to any musical genre.
