Was just being asked about these - usually when I look them up the price has fluctuated but they appear to be £39.95 again. They're passive speakers, so need an Amplifier to drive them.

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.

Solid construction
The cabinet isn't just compact, it's also very solid. This combination gives the Diamonds an extremely accurate sound quality as the cabinet doesn't flex or vibrate. Equally impressive are the drive units. A soft dome tweeter gives the clarity and smoothness of sound you'd expect from a more expensive speaker, while the woofer cone uses a carbon fibre type weave to offer extremely taut and responsive bass.

Surprisingly powerful
With a front port, these bass reflex speakers are punchier than you might expect and in no way could they ever be described as tinny. Over all, they may be small but the sound is grown-up, with excellent staging, realism and surprisingly powerful.

Hi-fi connections
It's not just the major aspects of the design that Wharfedale have got right, it's the details, too. Proper 4mm banana sockets will accept thick cable and offer the best type of connection. Threaded sockets at the rear make for secure and easy bracket attachment.

At £100 these speakers were clearly market leaders. Now we're offering them at this bargain price, the Diamond 9.0 speakers are a gem of a deal!

Sensitivity: 86dB
Impedance: 6ohms
Power rating: 75watts

Cabinet type: Bass reflex - front firing

I seem to have upset someone! Well, I added it because I know a few people who were looking out for them - if it helps one member, then it was worth posting

Easy to do.
I know nothing: if I had a pair of these up front, and a pair behind, and hooked them up to an amp, and also bought a separate sub, would I have a pretty legit looking/sounding 5.1 arrangement?

Hooked up to an AV, that would be 4.1
They're alright. They're not stunning for up front. Decent for rears.

Hmmm, I already have a pair of these, would I be better getting two more or sticking with my KEF 1005 surround sound set thing for movies? I too know nothing! Any input would be appreciated.

Logitech Z906 would be better in movies and games but this would be better for music.
If Carlsberg did Speakers!
