WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 220 BOOKSHELF SPEAKERS
One of the Greatest Values in Audio: Award-Winning Wharfedale Diamond 220 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Delivers Sublime Transparency, Incredible Balance, and Pinpoint Accuracy
Wharfedale Diamond 220 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Sounds Airy, Open, Musical, Natural, and Clear
Like the world’s most beautiful diamonds, the Wharfedale Diamond 220 bookshelf loudspeaker offers a rare combination of balanced dispersion, brilliant proportionality, and sublime transparency. A two-way speaker that sounds much bigger than its compact size, the award-winning Diamond 220 exhibits crackerjack musicality, pinpoint accuracy, and refined tonality. You’ll hear sheer instrumental naturalism, lifelike vocal reproduction, and tautly focused soundstages. A 5.1-inch bass driver ensures rich, controlled bottom-end performance while the soft-dome treble spoils you with smooth, supple highs. Elevated sensations of airiness, spaciousness, and openness make every type of music come alive with covetable vibrancy, intimacy, and energy on par with speakers far above Diamond 220’s price class.
Built to exacting standards and available in four luxurious finishes, Diamond 220 puts an end to treating music as background entertainment. Never again will you long for close connections to your favorite artists or be tempted to leave the room while a song is playing. The emotional involvement rendered by Diamond 220 is that significant. Upgraded construction materials, fine-tuned crossovers, Wharfedale’s signature woven-Kevlar drivers, updated bass and treble units, and a slot-loaded port turn this speaker into an overachieving dynamo. Compatible with mid- and higher-powered amplifiers, Diamond 220 obliterates precepts associated with budget products and stakes its claim as one of the best values in audio.
New Cabinet Materials and Trickle-Down Technology for Optimal Involvement
Ongoing research into new cabinet materials and loudspeaker drivers yields the foundation for Diamond 220, which improves upon its predecessors in terms of design, construction, execution, and aesthetics. Diamond 220 boasts the latest acoustic technology to produce an involving listening experience that cannot be beat at this price point. Fieldwork and testing that resulted in the implementation of Crystalam (a substance that reduces the audibility of panel resonance and the cabinet hear-through’ that causes distinct coloration) in Wharfedale’s flagship Jade Series has now been applied to the far less-expensive Diamond 220. In Diamond 220, a simpler combination of particleboard and MDF supplies similar reductions in coloration, damps annoying high-frequency resonances, and blocks internal sound leakage.
