Wharfedale is one of the UK’s oldest and best known speaker manufacturers, so it’s great to see the company doing so well at the moment. Its Diamond range has always been regarded as the pinnacle of budget esoteric design, but even by Wharfedale's own high standards, the latest (200 series) Diamond speakers are an outstanding achievement. By using the skills of acclaimed loudspeaker designer Peter Comeau and a fabulous production facility in the far east, Wharfedale has been able to create a range of low to mid price speakers with absolutely class-leading sound quality and stunning build-quality.
