Hands up who recognises these speakers? Congratulations to those who said, "They're from the 2004 Award-winning compact speaker package." Yes, add the Diamond SW150 subwoofer - an Award-winner in its own right - to four Diamond 9.0s and a 9CC centre and you have the 9 HCP 5.1 system.
Since the range's launch way back in 1981, generations of Diamonds have regularly offered class-leading, affordable sound. The latest entry-levels are tiny chaps, rising up 24cm (that's over 5cm shorter than this magazine page) and reaching back just 17cm. However, they feel super-solid, -giving the impression of a compact, yet purposeful piece of equipment. Wharfedale offers a total of five finishes, including an all-silver finish to match the latest electronics and TV.
Either in free space or close to a rear wall - they're not fussy - the Diamonds deliver an admirably honest sound. Don't expect huge bass depth or definition - the speakers' small size, together with their price tag, prohibits that. But do expect an even tonal balance that never exaggerates the source material, plus a composed top end. This all helps the Wharfedales reign in unruly cheaper components, making the best of what you feed them.
We may have warned against big bass expectations, but play some challenging Nitin Sawhney - he's a man who likes an extra helping of lower frequencies - and the 9.0s present a tight and punchy presentation. They also deliver vocals with greater clarity and realism than possibly any other similarly priced speaker. Even more dynamically minded music, such as Gladiator's OST, reveals the Diamond's limitations, but they avoid the horrid cabinet boom and treble screech of many budget monitors. Instead, they stay within their limits, -presenting a really enjoyable sound.
If you have more money and space, the £180 Diamond 9.1s offer a more dynamic listen. However, if you're looking for a small, yet remarkably talented, £100 speaker, the 9.0s are the ones for you. With budget separates or a £200-ish micro system, they'll make you smile.

For: Great sound from the tiny cabinets; ideal partners for budget separates or upgrades for micro systems; great build; add three more and a sub for a great 5.1 system; flexible about position
Against: Lack the scale of larger speakers
Verdict: Looking for value compact stereo speakers? Look no further"

Finished in a smart rosewood effect wrap, the Diamond 9.0 sets the standard at its price.

Or £59.94 with 5 Year Supercare

No, but you may be unfamiliar with HUKD rules regarding reposting: -
“Any thread over one month old would be fair enough to receive a repost if there is a price drop or not, as this allows newer members to receive notification of that deal. With site membership increasing as fast as it is, that would become more significant for new users, as it would be unlikely for them to easily stumble across a month old thread.”

That's fair enough, I'm generally "au fait" with how internet forums operate, I forgot that this one has a slightly, shall we say, alternative rule set. Dupes, cross-posts etc. are not normally encouraged in forums. Not to worry though :thumbsup:

Defininetly worth it.. the 9.0's sound pretty decent but lacks a little in the bass side (not surprising considering their size). Got a pair downstairs paired up with the Onkyo HTX-22HD and they match up pretty nicely.

£100 is a bargain for top notch speakers.. Might have to pop in richer sounds tommorow and see if they have any left!

How about a Waldorf salad? Washed down with a screw driver?!

On Topic: will these make good rears? Or would that be overkill?

Ah! silly me! I must've read the word 'forums' wrong at the top of the page.

They would make great rears, assuming that you have a decent set of fronts with a similar tonal balance to them, if not then getting a full set of these would be an upgrade worth looking at.

Blimey....15 years ago I paid this price for the Diamond 4's...that are still in use today.

Well clearly you have gone besides the point in which case there's no convincing you. let me show you some examples of what normal forums look like. It baffles me how you cannot realise why HUKD is different.

It’s different but still a forum! People post a deal (i.e. start a topic) and other people comment on it. In what way is that not a forum? Just because the interface is different that doesn’t matter. :thinking:

Super. Good job on that one. I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to convince me of, or why you're baffled. Also, I don't remember a point being made, never mind my comment(s) being beside said point. Now I'm baffled...

ok fine ill side with you, in a forum is it not possible for topics or discussions to come up again in a new topic instead of resurecting the old? can they only be discussed once? there we go. Also in this forum posts don't bump when replied to. Its more like digg.com.
