Wharfedale Diamond 220 Speakers

The Wharfedale Diamond 220 was barely out for 5 minutes when What Hi-Fi magazine caught glimpse of it, had it in for a listen, and it was so good it won "Best Stereo Speakers Upto £200" award in What Hi-Fi's 2014 awards! A replacement for the award winning Wharfedale Diamond 121s and Wharfedale Diamond 10.1's before.

Design

The Diamond 220 is a sandwich cabinet design, which uses particle board sandwiched by MDF on either side. This new construction offers superb regidity and damping, helping to reduce the already low levels of distortion. This new, cleaner construction offers a cleaner surface for the veneer to be applied to, giving a smoother finish all round.

As with the Diamond 121, this Diamond 220 ports the bass via an integral plinth, rather than the more usual front or rear holes. This provides a more efficient and even bass output whilst also making the speaker easier to place, as wall positioning doesn't need to be taken into account. The ability to place the speaker close to a wall without concern for bass performance makes the 220 a real contender.

Kevlar Drivers

The Diamond 220 driver is formed of woven Kevlar and has ribs for added rigidity, whilst a revised magnet system gives even tighter control of the sound. Vocals sound more realistic than you'd imagine for a speaker in this price range, the bass is upbeat and the treble unit is surrounded by a deeply dished waveguide. The detailed treble is refined, which helps to improve the image of the sound allowing the listener to pick out individual instruments.

Premium Finish

The gloss finished baffle is also new, making these the Diamond 220 an attractive and accomplished loud speaker.
