Blown away by these little speakers

I am REALLY impressed by just how good these sound. I'm using them as near-field speakers in a smallish office, streaming Qobuz from my desktop PC, and they sound so good that it's distracting me from my work! The clarity is phenomenal. You can push these with some serious amplification and they handle it without breaking a sweat. I don't think I've heard anything that I'd remotely characterize as distortion even on quite high volume. I bought these to replace a pair of PSB Alpha P3s, which I used for a year and never felt they were anything better than adequate. I can't believe how much of an upgrade these Diamond 12.0s are, for not that much more $$. I could never go back to the PSBs after hearing the Diamond 12.0s. If you're looking for small-ish bookshelf speakers for your PC or office that deliver audiophile sound quality, you really must try these out. You won't be disappointed!

Pros: Outstanding sound and clarity, able to handle substantial amplification. Build quality is outstanding, and they look fantastic. Perfect speakers for a desktop computer or office.

Cons: None that I've come across!

Small, but Powerful

I bought these speakers to replace my ten year old Polk Audio TSi100 speakers that I was using for my home theater system. I was happy with the Polk speakers, but wanted to upgrade to higher quality speakers and after a lot of online research, I chose these Wharfdale speakers. The Wharfdale speakers are much more crisp and clear and have plenty of low end base . The small size of these speakers is deceiving because the sound is what you expect from a much larger diameter speaker. I was so happy with the sound from these Wharfdale speakers, that I purchased the Diamond center channel and I'm amazed at how great these speakers sound.

Absolutely beautiful.

I have been using these speakers in my primary desktop system. They produce such a nice sound that I can't help but get tingles when listening to a guitar riff or hearing someone hit the high note. I have these paired with a Jamo S808 sub and they work well together for a small room. Speakers themselves are gorgeous and look amazing on my desk. Highly recommend if you're looking for some smaller speakers with great sound.

Little but mighty sounding

I wanted a speaker that I can put in a vacation condo and I didn't want to spend too much or get something too big. But I am somewhat spoiled by my Dynaudio speakers in my current system. I decided to try these 12.0's after poking around the internet. I listened to Wade Preston's piano on "Subconscious Blues" and it sounded very natural with good tone; the string sections as well. At several spots on the song there are birds chirping and they fooled my dog who sat up and tilted her head to get a better listen. The moody bass was strong and present on Cigarettes After Sex "Apocalypse". Nora Jones vocals sounded strong on all the songs on "Come away with Me". As for fast paced rock Dire Straits "Solid Rock" sounded great. I think most people would be very satisfied with these speakers, given their size and price. They have a nice balanced sound, can play moderately loud, and sound bigger then their size. Build quality is very good. However I just wasn't quite sold on them. I felt they were just a little bit congested sounding. So I ordered the next model up the Diamond 12.1. I figured I would keep the 12.0's if I wasn't impressed with the bigger speaker. Well the 12.1's turned out well worth $100 more with a more open airy sound. I suggest the 12.0's are excellent if you are on a tight budget and want something balanced and musical. The 12.1's, they do everything just a little better though. BTW placement is critical with the 12.0's. They muddy up wh

Pros: Really good balanced speakers. 5 stars given price and size. I am still surprised at how good these tiny 10 inch tall speakers sound. If the 12.1's didn't exist I would have kept them for sure. They don't have that boxy sound that some budget speakers have or at least had in the past. Possibly the best value of all the speakers I have owned including numerous high end brands.

Cons: Despite being small enough for a shelf, sounded a little muddy to me when very close to a wall. Sound improved dramatically when placed on stands about 2 ft. from the wall. If you plan on putting them on a bookshelf you might want to audition them yourself to see if you find that to be the case. Crutchfield's return policy is Excellent BTW. If you like a bright in-your-face dynamic type sound there are better choices. Personally I think a balanced sound like these speakers is more vers
