Wharfedale Diamond 11.1 Bookshelf Speakers (pair), Black Wood
The evolution of a classic, the Wharfedale Diamond 11.1 continues to lead the compact speaker market.
The legend continues
It was back in 1981 when the Wharfedale Diamond first redefined expectations of small speakers. The original model proved that a small speaker didn't necessarily need to sound 'small', that a budget speaker could sound full-bodied without being intrusive. The latest Diamond 11.1 follows on from the award-winning 220 model and has already received a positive response.
The beauty with compact Diamond speakers is their sheer versatility - and the 11.1 is no different. The compact size and high sensitivity makes them the ideal companion for mini system or Hi-Fi separates system alike. They're also easy to place, working well close to or away from the rear wall. If you're looking for quality home cinema speakers, they also work exceptionally well as satellite speakers - there's even a centre speaker to match.
Advanced driver system
Improved yet again, the drive units fitted to the Diamond 11.1 are amongst the most advanced available in their class. A newly designed woofer suspension and surround gives the long-throw driver the flexibility it needs for a life-like sound and powerful bass. The newly evolved tweeter design features a vented chamber, letting the treble 'breathe' for natural-sounding, crystal-clear high frequencies.
Refined cabinet for the lowest distortion
For the lowest distortion, the Diamond 11.1 uses a refined sandwich cabinet construction. This gives superb rigidity and damping properties, helping to further reduce the already low levels of distortion. Substantial internal bracing adds to the rigidity and a specially developed lining absorbs unwanted standing waves. All this engineering comes together to make the Diamond 11.1's one of the most natural-sounding speakers in its class.
Now better than ever, the Wharfedale Diamond 11.1 is still the small speaker to beat.
