Wharfedale Diamond 210 bookshelf speaker

Wharfedale Diamond 210 bookshelf speaker (shown individually in Blackwood).

High-quality drivers

Each speaker checks in at less than 10" tall, but packs a powerful sonic punch. A 4" woven Kevlar® woofer complements a 1" soft dome tweeter. Together they offer revealing sound in a surprisingly small form factor.

Solid construction

Wharfedale paid special attention to the design of the 210s' speaker enclosures. They used advanced computer modeling to craft non-resonant cabinets with stiff walls and robust internal bracing. A rear-panel port reinforces bass performance.

Ideal for music or movies

The Diamond 210s are an excellent choice for a stereo music system, especially when paired with a powered subwoofer for low-end extension. They're also ideal for the front or surround channels of a Wharfedale home theater system. 

Build a full system

Pair the 210s with other models from the Diamond 200 series for voice-matched sound:
Center channel: Diamond 220C or Diamond 240C
Bookshelf speakers: Diamond 220 or Diamond 225
Floor-standing speakers: Diamond 230Diamond 240, or Diamond 250

Greate for my use, but only good overall

Crutchfield customer from Salt Lake City, UT on 7/10/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I use these in my bedroom setup, driven by a Klipsch Powergate. The room is not ideal for listening, and I have not done extensive testing of the speakers in any other setup. I'm pretty impressed with the imaging and clarity of mids, and the highs are not too bright. (Norah Jones's voice!) There is no bass though, not at all. I recognize these are small, and my expectations are in keeping with the size -- no one should expect them to extend down much. Even with low expectations, though, the bass is simply anemic. I'm keeping them because they look nice (incl. good build quality), and we listen to jazz and classical in the bedroom at low volume so they work very well. I'd be a little concerned to use them as surrounds, which is their designed use-case I believe. Obvi a subwoofer would help, but still. (Caveat: I did not audition them as surrounds, so my impression is a best guess.)

Pros: build; great imaging & mids

Cons:

Just received the 210's and hooked them up to the Bluesound Powernode. I was taken back on sound and clarity. I stream tidal which helps but highly recommend theses little gems for a small to midsize room, in our case the kitchen. Another winner in my eyes.

Pros: great sound for price and size. Using with Bluesound powernode and Tidal

Cons: non as of yet

Little, but not really.

Crutchfield customer from Middleton, WI on 5/12/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Sound bigger than they are. They don't go very deep into the low registers, but the bass is very well defined. Great if you like to follow the bass line of a song. The high end is big and smooth, with just a bit of emphasis in the high frequencies.

Pros: Smooth response, big soundstage.

Cons: Not for bass heads or people who welcome tinnitus.

Fine Little Speaker

Crutchfield customer from Tucson, AZ on 4/28/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a fine little bookshelf speaker. It is very smooth and what I would describe as "musical". I listen to a lot of pop and classical and I love listening through this speaker. I have them paired with Klipsch Cornwalls and they sound musically compatible. Since they are small, they will fit nicely on any shelf or stand. While not strong on bass, the smoothness and clarity make up for any bass deficiency. And, if you pair them with a larger speaker, you won't notice any lack of bass. As a practical matter, they are very easy to connect to your speaker cable. I love this little speaker.

Pros: Smooth and clear sound.

Cons: None to speak ofg

Crutchfield customer from Malvern, PA on 1/21/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Nice, smooth sound. Limits to bass and volume because of size to be expected. I am using these in my office at work and they sound great. So revealing I had to upgrade to a decent USB DAC and better amp!

Pros: clear, clean sound. Great for desktop application if you have the room.

Cons: limited bass, max volume.

Great sound for my old ears

Harry from Pensacola, FL on 8/12/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Love the sound quality but they are some what larger than the twenty year old speakers they replaced. They also are not rated for the so called higher powered amps but work great for normal power ratings and for me.

Pros: Sound quality is great but cabinets are a little large for book shelf.

Cons: Can't handle high power

Product Research

Features

2-Way Driver Design: The Wharfedale Diamond 210 is a 2-way bookshelf loudspeaker which incorporates a 1" fabric soft-dome tweeter and 4" woven kevlar cone woofer. A finely tuned crossover guarantees a smooth transition between the tweeter and woofer with an enjoyable audible experience, both on and off-axis.

  • 1" Tweeter: The 1" tweeter uses a sheer fabric dome and advanced ferrite magnet system, surrounded by a carefully crafted wave guide that encourages outstanding midrange performance too.
  • 4" Woofer: Semi-elliptical "break-up" areas on the 4" woven-kevlar woofer smooth the response through the audible range. The cone edges are treated with a unique diamond pattern rubber surround.

Non-Resonant Cabinet: The speaker cabinet combines layers of particle board and MDF, bonded in a unique structure to damp annoying resonances and block internal sound leakage. The result is that the "noise" and distortion from cabinet walls are buried more than 35dB below the driver output. Cabinet walls and internal bracing were developed using Wharfedale's latest "Virtual Speaker" software, with the help of Delayed Cumulative Spectral Analysis. The top, bottom, and side walls of the cabinets are finished with a wood veneer (black, rosewood, or walnut), while the baffle is finished with a gloss black lacquer.

Bass Port: Exiting the rear of each cabinet is a bass port which increases the speakers' efficiency and improves overall bass performance.

Binding Post Terminals: Each Wharfedale Diamond 210 bookshelf speaker is outfitted with a set of binding-post speaker terminals that will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, and banana-plugs (single or dual). Two plastic plugs on each speaker will need to be removed to use banana plugs.

Mounting Options: These bookshelf loudspeakers can simply be mounted on stands, shelves, or other piece of AV furniture with a flat surface. Each Wharfedale Diamond 210 is also equipped with two M6 threaded inserts spaced 2.375" apart that can be used with wall-mount brackets that come with dual point adapter plates (sold separately - see accessory tab).

Placement: Try to position the loudspeakers equidistant (6.5' to 13') from one another and the main listening position. The speakers should ideally be positioned so that the tweeters are roughly at ear level to a seated listener. The speakers should be "toed" or angled (15° to 40°) into the main listening position. The speakers can be positioned as close as 2.3125' to 3.3' from a side facing wall. There should be a distance of at least 0.6875' to 3.3' between the back of the speaker cabinets and the wall (the speakers' bass extension will improve if they are positioned closer to a wall or corner).

Diamond Series: The Wharfedale Diamond series consists of three floor-standing loudspeakers (Diamond 230 / Diamond 240 / Diamond 250), three bookshelf loudspeakers (Diamond 210 / Diamond 220 / Diamond 225), and two center-channel speakers (Diamond 220C / Diamond 240C) - all sold separately.

Q
Are the feet at the bottom of the speaker (easily) removable?
[ Michael  Dec 11, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I'm afraid there is nothing mentioned in our research or the Wharfedale owner's manual regarding "feet" removal for the Diamond 210 speakers. For more details on that, you may want to contact Wharfedale's support directly at 312-738-5025. You can also contact a Crutchfield Advisor by phone (888-955-6000) or online chat to discuss further.
[ Larry  Dec 18, 2017 ]  Staff
Q
Can the rubber feet be moved from the bottom to the side of the speaker? My application only allows 7" or less for height.
[ Dean  Jan 31, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
I did not receive rubber feet with mine. I've been looking online to find some specifically for these, I don't think they're made with it. I was actually kind of bummed because I don't want it to scratch my desk oh, they were surprisingly heavy but sound amazing.
