Wharfedale Diamond 11.2 Bookshelf Speakers (pair), Black Wood
As Wharfedale celebrates its 85th birthday, the company’s classic Diamond lineage of high-performance, high-value speakers reaches new heights with the Diamond 11 Series. The all new DIAMOND 11 Series sports extensive improvements both inside and out, Diamond 11 represents the most significantly enhanced Diamond series in years.
Since 1981, Wharfedale’s famous Diamond speakers have served as the classic entry point to true high-fidelity sound, their exceptional value for money earning numerous ‘product of the year’ awards in the UK and around the world. Now, with the introduction of the all-new Diamond 11 Series, Wharfedale has once again raised the bar for affordable, high-performance loudspeakers.
The most immediately obvious change is a return to the elegantly curved cabinet sides made famous by the Diamond 9 and Diamond 10 ranges, which yielded What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year Awards in 2005 and 2009 for the Diamond 9.1 and 10.1 respectively. The more recent Diamond 100 and Diamond 200 speakers had square-sided cabinets, but the Diamond 11 Series brings back the curves in response to global demand. The result is an affordable speaker range with a distinctly premium look and sound. The latest generation of Diamond speakers includes design elements never previously seen at such affordable price points. At the start of the design process, Wharfedale’s engineers went back to basics to create a loudspeaker system that would once again revolutionise this sector of the hi-fi market and bring high-end performance – and style – within reach of many music lovers, not just the wealthy few.
