The New Benchmark
Shop the range
"The Wharfedale DIAMOND line is “one of the most successful speaker ranges of all time”
But the all-new DIAMOND 12 Series is the best DIAMOND range yet! Developed in collaboration with Karl-Heinz Fink – one of the most successful loudspeaker designers on the planet. Classic DIAMOND price points, industrial design that’s cool and contemporary yet still distinctly Wharfedale, and sound that delivers, yet another, new ‘budget’ benchmark through exceptional acoustic design and engineering.
A voice coil beyond this class
The voice coil is wound on a high-power epoxy/glass ﬁbre bobbin highly unusual in speakers at this price level. This has the advantage of not adding eddy currents and delivering greater power handling than an aluminium bobbin, whilst also being much stiﬀer than the Kapton type associated with this price-class.
Inside the cabinet, Intelligent Spot Bracing connects opposite walls with a speciﬁc form of wood brace to achieve optimal reduction of cabinet resonance. These braces are precisely modeled by computer simulation to improve upon the commonplace ‘ﬁgure of eight’ brace, which may simply transfer resonance from one wall to another.
