Wharfedale Diamond 9.1

The Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 bookshelf speakers are absolutely amazing.
Clear and defined sound, making voices sound natural and warm. The box is an obvious departure from standard low cost speakers, with curved casing and Kevlar drivers.

At What Hi-Fi the Wharfedale 9.1 has twice won awards in its price category and was also voted Product of the Year, designated as one of the best value-for-money speakers ever, the 9.1 offers excellent performance and quality.

Lows- For a 5” driver, these put out an incredible bass that is not only deep, but tight as well.

Mids- All instruments shine through, not harsh. Vocals are incredible- male and female voices. The musicality of the Diamond 9.1’s is astonishing.

Highs- The 25mm tex-dome tweeter is loud enough to reproduce cymbals in any song without becoming harsh or fatiguing to the ear. The tweeter is smooth and powerful enough.

The positioning is important, but the front-firing bass ports eliminate the need to be a specific distance from a wall.

They are very projective, which makes them sound lively and with powerful vivid stage images.

For its size, this speaker does almost everything right and is a superb value. In its midrange and high-frequency resolution it behaved more like a speaker with a four-figure price tag. What more can one ask of an affordable speaker? Well done!
