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 Brilliant speakers for the money. Bought the Wharfdale Diamond 230 black speakers after reading all the reviews. I was ready to spend more money on a decent per of speakers like the Dali Oberon 7 .I decided to give the Wharfdale 230s ago, they where a lot cheaper than the Dali speakers. I waited for the 230s to arrive and wondered if I'd made the right decision. Well after connecting the 230s to my Marantz 2265b receiver, I was blow away by the sound. for the money the 230s are a bargain, so before they disappear for sale, get a per, I recommend them. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product-even better customer service The Diamond 230 is quality throughout. Build, aesthetics, sound quality. It was the perfect upgrade from the Diamond 220. Although in a smallish room, the depth of bass from 'Level 42' tracks to the higher frequencies of 'Tangerine dream' demonstrates its complete competence across every genre. The quality of Customer service from Richer Sounds has been, as always, exemplary. There was a short gap between placing the product in my basket and returning to find the price had gone up by £51. Without question, the sales assistant immediately sold at the previous price. When I thought the spikes were missing from the delivery box (so well protected and hidden), the branch immediately apologised and ordered replacements. Superb Company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First floorstanders These were to replace Diamond 9.1 bookshelf speakers in my lounge. I've had them a week now and so far I can say I'm very happy with them. The build quality is good, in fact they are nice and heavy so I'm not too worried about them falling over should they get a little knock. They sound better than expected and fill the room nicely. If anything they sound a little bass heavy/muddy but I'm sure that's more to do with their placement in the room and the room acoustics. I have them pretty close to the walls and my usual listening position is close to the back wall so no surprise there. I would definitely recommend them and for the price they are fantastic value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sounding speakers at a great price Excellent floor standing speakers, lovely clear dynamic sound with nice extended bass. They also look much more expensive with a lovely Piano black gloss on the front with the drivers surrounded with a ring of silver. Very well made, actually feel sturdier than my Mission floor speakers.
