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 Happy customer. Bought six months ago ,the sound is very neutral . I  have them against the back wall but about 1 metre from the side wall  equally, flat to the back wall.the sound comes across as balanced ,the bass comes across as tight and pretty well extended.the mids are clean  and detailed, the treble is good but not as extended as the Dali Oberon 5 . But then again they’re double the price.Richersounds delivery was excellent and the Wharfdales  were well packed. A bit deeper than I thought they’d be but nice height and width. One happy bunny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great products great staff I brought my sound system on Friday 17th November I had great contact with Tony the store manager as I wanted to hear the sound quality of the Wharfedale Diamond 230 speakers with the Denon CD player and Yamaha Tuner amplifier and Turntable , I arrived at 10 o'clock and Roger had set it all up for me the knowledge he has is great and so helpful nothing is too much as they want you to actually enjoy listening to your music . I will definitely go back to Richer sound for all my audio needs .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound at Bargain Price I bought these speakers to replace my bookshelf ones. What an improvement over my old ones. Very clear sound and plenty of bass when you need it. These speakers are a bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review wharfdale floor standing speakers I just recently picked up a pair of these from my local richer sounds. Chelsea Fulham road branch. And I could. It be happier! They tick every box. Excellent treble, mid, and the bass is monsterous!! I predominantly play death and black metal and for this type of music you could not ask for a better set of floor standers! I love them maybe not my neighbours though! Hahah
