What Hi Fi Sound & Vision Magazine names Wharfedale Diamond one of the top 40 products of all time
In one of its articles, What Hi Fi Sound & Vision says "in 1982, no one would have believed the Wharfedale Diamond would dominate the budget-speaker market for generations to come.
Standing just 24cm high, the originals were tiny, but delivered a huge amount of bass and had a rolled-off, smooth tonal balance. The Diamonds were much cheaper than their competition too, costing £65 while the rest hovered closer to £100.
Subsequent generations saw improved tweeters and better finishes, and the current Wharfedale Diamond 220 speakers are arguably the best Diamonds ever. Yet, for that touch of magic that’s rare in hi-fi, it’s the originals we hanker after"
Certainly very high praise, and rightly so, considering that Wharfedale's Diamond series is arguably the most recognised speaker series in the world today.
