Speaker legends don't get much bigger than the Wharfedale Diamond 9.0.

The original small hi-fi speaker
It's hard to believe that the


original Wharfedale Diamond is now past its thirtieth birthday. All


those decades ago, it was the Diamond speaker that proved, for the first


time, that excellent quality sound could be achieved from a small,


budget speaker. Since then there have been dozens of imitators, but the


Diamonds remain amongst the best available.

Bloody good price!

States in-store only

Ah a HUKD classic! Great for a budget/beginner setup. Got these for rears and Dalis for the front. Great sound!

I had these on Linn Kann stands (as dear as the speakers) and they sounded awesome.

can i use it for a laptop ?

I bought these a couple of months back when they were on offer. They're still in the box in my garage.
Note to self 'Must stop looking on HUKD'.

Cracking deal

Do they need standard cables to work with amp

Standard speaker cable yes.

Amazing at this price.

A masterpiece in sound engineering,had these from my youth.

The bass isnt too good on these, otherwise ok ish.

As for masterpiece in sound engineering, suggest listening to a few old japanese speakers like Sony, Pioneer etc

Wharfdales have stood the test of time and have outlived most of their competitors. Excellent spaears for the money in my opinion.

As for wh4231s suggestion to listen to some Sony or Pioneer speakers I am not sure what he means. They can best be described as tin cans in a wooden frame. No Japenese speakers ever cut the mustard nor were they ever worthy to get anything but an occasional mention in the Hi Fi press. They were so poor they simply wernt considered HIFI.

Try some B&W685s, Mission 780s, Kef iQ5s, Monitor Audios, or best of all Rogers LS/35A and dont forget the Wharfdales.

Oh dear, is Hi-Fi slowly becoming one of those things you see on youtube when kids are given cassettes, old computers, VCR's etc and have them try to figure out how they work.

Sadly, seems Hi-Fi is a bastion for a dying breed now of those of us over the age of thirty that remembers a time before disposable crap, auto-tune and dynamic range compression that is perfect for MP3 fodder.

Great budget speakers for small rears in a 5.1 setup or as fronts in a small room...and let's face it, with how crap our houses are built here, most of us have at least one, several or all small rooms in the house.

Shame it's in-store only. Living in Ireland can't really avail of the offer.

Yo that explains why Wharfdales are the top of the pile and Japanese tin cans are not heard of by most ppl around the world.

Now back to real life i am gonna chuck away my 1 yr old Wharfdales that i replaced with 20 yrs old Pioneer speakers that I bought on ebay. Sound much better to my ears

Japanese speakers are mass produced usually accompanying a Sony ,Panasonic or some other Argos, Very or Brighthouse sound system. The japanese never perfected speaker development so are not considered HiFi by any serious audiophile. Wharfdale have made excellent speakers over the years and these are good for what they are. Virtually all the comments on this thread bear this out.

Going back to my original comment you need to listen to some B&W 685s, Mission 780s, Kef iQ5s, Monitor Audios, or best of all Rogers LS/35A to really appreciate what a decent pair of speakers sounds like.
