Wharfedale Diamond 225 Bookshelf Speakers
For more than 30 years, Wharfedale’s famous Diamond speakers have served as the classic entry point to true high-fidelity sound, their exceptional value for money earning dozens of awards around the globe. Now with the introduction of the Diamond 225, Wharfedale has once again raised the bar for affordable, high-performance loudspeakers.
Technological enhancements across the range include:
– A unique cabinet construction – A sandwich of particleboard between MDF, which has enabled improvements both aesthetic and sonic.
– New lacquered baffle design further enhances aesthetics
– A bass motor system with larger magnets makes the speakers easier to drive and boosts transient acoustic power
– Enhanced ‘Slot-loaded distributed Port’ – for lower turbulence and there for low frequency distortion
– Upgraded crossover networks
2016 sees the new addition of the Diamond 225.
This new addition to the Diamond 200 family builds on the best-seller in the series, the Diamond 225. Utilizing a larger 165mm woven fiber cone, bass extension is extended to a lower 40Hz, giving you even more performance at a similar, affordable price.
Quite simply put, the Wharfedale Diamond is one of our most successful speaker series, if not one of the most successful hi-fi speaker series ever. We can justify this as year on year, the Diamond Series has broke the mould for combining award winning sound quality unforeseen at this price.
From 1982 Wharfedale Diamond has meant one thing – impeccable performance at an affordable price. Today we are pleased to bring you the latest series of loudspeakers from Wharfedale that aspires to this tradition – Diamond 200 Series.
Foremost in the design criteria for Diamond 200 is the ongoing research into loudspeaker driver sound quality. The speaker series uses our famous woven Kevlar cone form, drawing influence from the flagship Jade Series.
While honing the internal crossover and using stronger magnets on the rear of the Diamond 220 for example, aesthetics and construction have been improved too. The Diamond 200 Series benefits from an all new lacquered front baffle and cosmetically enhanced veneers.
Only when the acousting tests are deemed truly satisfying are the loudspeakers designs signed-off for production, ensuring that each speaker model fulfils its eventual owner’s dreams of musically enjoyable reproduction from Britain’s Most Famous Loudspeakers.
