Wharfdale Wharfedale Diamond 9 – Works great does exactly what it needs to do, and you can’t beat the price. Bought it for my mother. She loved it so much that she bought another for a friend.

Cannot recommend highly enough clarity and level of detail excellent no. Cannot recommend highly enoughclarity and level of detail excellentno problem handling the full output of my pioneer a 30 across a catholic range of classical, blues and jazz performances.

Best low budget sound bi-wired speakers. Perfect sound for 100 pound price. I read the reviews before purchasing and i did the right decision.

Brilliant product and good for the price without question star purchase for 2016 excellent sound quality.

Managed to get a couple pairs of these legends from the last ever shipment . Better than any diamond theyve made since 2003 when this model first hit shelves.

These speakers are excellent in every way and worth every penny and more. I have friends with speakers 3 x the price of these little beasts and i’m still totally blown away with the sound quality of these. Our lounge is over 40ft long and these are plenty.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Awesome even with small amp
  • So far very impressed although disappointed they are not manufactured in UK
  • All genres of music – can’t fault these!

Awesome even with small amp. These wharfedale speakers are awesome, a musical epiphanyi’ve been rediscovering lost treasures from the depths of my music collection and sitting totally immersed in the sensual sound. They sound clear, rich, precise, even powered by a 25w/ channel class t amp in my narrowboat. I’ve not turned it up beyond 2/3 and that’s plenty of power.

All genres of music – can’t fault these. I enjoy electronica, dance, rock and old blues music. My wife plays pop and is a classical music connoisseur. We have differing systems all over the house and i have my own studio. These are the best speakers we have (for all genres) and they are so good i have just ordered a second pair. Can’t fault them or the supplier. Oh, and they look really good.

Great product and great service – thanks.

Sound quality is ok but could be better at loud volumes.

Small speakers with a big sound. I am no hi-fi buff but these speakers do sound pretty good, although to my ears they are lacking a little something in the mid-range area. The high frequencies are very clear and the bass is powerful and tight. Build quality is generally good although i had to re-glue the veneer on one of the corners of one cabinet which had begun to peel away. I also un-screwed and then screwed-down the connector plate on one of the cabinets because it had seemingly been hastily affixed in the factory and was not flush (probably a friday afternoon job). I assumed the name wharfedale meant it would be 100% perfect but that is unrealistic on what i understand are budget speakers. All in all i would highly recommend these speakers and the four star rating is only because of the small cosmetic niggles i have mentioned.

Very happy with these speakers. The bass is very punchy and voice is clear through the kevlar speakers and having bi-channel keeps the highs and lows crystal clear. I recommend this product all day long.

Fantastic value, fantastic speakers.

Great speakers for the money. Lovely sound and great to look at.

    Excellent quality, wrong colour. The speakers are excellent, both sound and quality. However, i ordered ‘walnut’ and received very dark brown. Specifically ordered walnut to match other furniture so disappointed. Bought these as a birthday gift so did not have time to return and re-order. Very happy with sound and build quality, but not happy that i did not receive exact item paid for, hence 4 stars instead of 5.

      1. Way better than my ears are capable. I love having proper music back in the house after years of using the tiny speakers on mobile devices and laptops. These are hooked up to the tiny gem the smsl sa-50 amp and work a treat. Make sure they are not on the floor if you want the full range of frequencies to fill the room (on the floor all speakers sound bass-ey).

    1. Bought for computer but used for hifi. Good response – bass you can hear rather than feel, really pleasant to listen to. I used a lepy 2024a amp as a driver for a pc sound system, but the sound was better than i expected (and speakers a little too heavy) so i’ve ended up using them as a hifi system. I used amazon basics 14awg speaker cable and found i needed to make jumpers to the second terminal since the supplied busbars didn’t make contact when the cable was inserted. I bought 4mm banana plugs but they wouldn’t work with these terminals. Excellent speakers and at bargain price. They may be an old design, but they do the job nicely.

    Simply put i am absolutely blown away with these speakers. Purchased for my man shed i have these running through a lepy 2020a amp ( 20 pound amp ) and hooked up to an android phone. The sound quality is amazing. Not an audiophile but my music collection has never sounded so good. Very fast delivery and they were well packed.

      1. Excellent room filling sound. Excellent room filling sound. They are a bit bigger than the very old set of diamonds i had, but the sound is a lot fuller as a result. I’ve been using them heavily for a couple of days, and the are starting to open up a bit, so i anticipate that they will get even better with use. Very happy, especially at the price point.
