Wharfedale’s famous Diamond speakers have served as the classic entry point to true high-fidelity sound, their exceptional value for money earning numerous ‘product of the year’ awards in the UK and around the world. Now, with the Diamond 11 Series, Wharfedale has once again raised the bar for affordable, high-performance loudspeakers.
The Diamond 11 Series is expertly constructed from a blend of woods of varying density, each sandwiched together. This design method ensures amazing acoustic characteristics and an impeccable standard of finish.
What's more, the acoustic performance is enhanced by the much-admired curved cabinet walls which also deliver a divine aesthetic. Meanwhile, a deeply articulate bass sound is free from unseemly 'chuffing' thanks to bass loading via an updated slot-loaded distributed port.
Sublime Crossover Integration
Wharfedale’s engineers utilise a massively evolved virtual crossover software system that creates a number of circuit options for combining the bass/midrange and treble units in a smooth manner. These circuit options are then stringently tested over a number of months, involving a wide range of music.
The design team then perfects the crossover component values, the type of components and the circuit board layout to capture the most detailed and, above all, brilliantly pleasurable musical performance using only listening tests as a marker of quality.
The merging of attention to tuning with excellent technical design, that injects Wharfedale Diamond speakers with their enduring appeal from original fans to newcomers.
The new generation of Diamond speakers includes design components not usually seen at such affordable price points.
Wharfedale’s engineers took a back to basics approach to create a loudspeaker system that would once again light up this sector of the hi-fi market and bring high-end performance – and a winning aesthetic – within the realm of many music lovers, not just the select few.
