Details

The Wharfedale Diamond 121 is the smallest speaker in Wharfedale's Diamond 100 range. It's a stand mount or bookshelf speaker that works perfectly with mini systems or good quality budget stereo systems. It can even be used as part of a home cinema package.

It effectively replaces the outgoing Diamond 10.1 speaker and improves upon the sound quality considerably. In direct tests we found the 121 simply outshone the 10.1. This is partly due to the redesign of the entire drive units, in particular the new mid/bass units which use a woven Kevlar cone with ridged patterns to help control the behaviour of the speaker. The net result (apart from the rather enticing looking pattern on the unit) is a more detailed sound - and a better sound.

We found these speakers to be enthusiastic and energetic. In particular the bass is far more refined that on previous versions and delivers an agile and solid sound. Midrange is also improved and treble manages to give detail and energy without becoming harsh and splashy.

They seem to work well with a huge range of amps too. We've tried them with Denon, Yamaha, Rotel and Onkyo and all work brilliantly much to our surprise - usually one of these will reveal a previously unseen weakness, but we couldn't find any. Indeed each sounded like it was a perfect match - so these speakers also exhibit a universality that is rarely seen.

We rarely see a speaker that delivers so well so we strongly recommend this one. Take a look at What Hi-Fi's review by clicking here to see what they say - they also love them!
