About the Wharfedale Diamond 12.2

An excellent entry into high-fidelity sound

If you're looking to put together a high-quality stereo system on a budget, I recommend giving the Wharfedale Diamond 12.2 speakers a look. Wharfedale's Diamond series has long been known for balanced, revealing sound at affordable prices. These are the largest bookshelf speakers in the lineup, so they offer a bit more bass than the other models. The rear-firing ports also help round out low frequencies, making these impressively potent speakers when paired with a good amplifier.

New woofer design

The Diamond 12.2 speakers are a complete redesign from the previous generation. The 6-1/2" Klarity™ woofer is a mica-infused polypropylene cone. What does that mean? Polypropylene is very light, so it responds quickly to the 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" soft-dome tweeter, these new Klarity woofers offer sound that's impressively accurate and smooth.

Save your bookshelves for books

The industry calls this category of speakers "bookshelf speakers." But that doesn't mean the 12.2s are meant to be placed on bookshelves. Instead, I recommend putting them on a solid pair of speaker stands to position the tweeters at ear-height and reduce vibrations that can color the sound.

Part of a complete Wharfedale surround sound system

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