About the Wharfedale Diamond 12.1

Building on Wharfedale's Diamond reputation

If you've spent a lot of time reading speaker reviews (like me), you may have noticed a trend with Wharfedale's Diamond Series speakers. They're continually praised for offering excellent sound at an affordable price. Sure, there's a level of additional performance to be had if you want to spend a whole lot more. But the Diamond 12.1 bookshelf speakers can certainly hold their own against lots of more expensive models.

Building on Wharfedale's Diamond reputation

If you've spent a lot of time reading speaker reviews (like me), you may have noticed a trend with Wharfedale's Diamond Series speakers.

But the Diamond 12.1 bookshelf speakers can certainly hold their own against lots of more expensive models.

New high-tech drivers

These speakers are a complete redesign from the previous generation. The 5-inch Klarity™ woofer is a mica-infused polypropylene cone. What does that mean? Polypropylene is very light, so it responds quickly to audio signals — important for any speaker to reproduce music accurately. Mica is a mineral that adds stiffness to the polypropylene. That keeps the woofer from losing its shape, which can cause distortion. Combined with the 1-inch soft-dome tweeter, these new Klarity woofers offer sound that's impressively accurate and smooth.

Great for stereo or rounding out a surround system

This is a great pair of speakers if you're putting together your first "real" stereo system, or if you want an affordable system for a secondary room. Either way, I recommend pairing them with a good amplifier — they'll definitely benefit from solid power. These speakers would also make excellent rear speakers in a surround sound setup.

Part of a complete Wharfedale speaker system

The Wharfedale Diamond 12 Series features an array of speakers that are voice-matched for compatibility in an immersive home theater system:
