Since 1982, Wharfedale Diamond series loudspeakers have been hailed worldwide as incredible values for money, boasting performance that exceeds speakers priced two to three times higher. 

“When (the Wharfedale Diamond Series) first burst onto the scene in 1982, the budget speaker market changed forever: the performance-per-pound benchmark was substantially lifted, the entry point to true high-fidelity sound truly redefined.” 

WhatHiFi?, September 2020 

Diamonds have undergone continuous improvement over the years. The latest Diamond 12 range includes technologies not typically found at these prices, such as internally braced multi-layer cabinets, ribbed Klarity™ midrange cones, and air-core crossover inductors. The Diamond 12 series raises the bar for affordable, high-performance loudspeakers. 

“…one of the best-selling speakers of all time.”
