Summary: good but get the 10 series. the sound quality is better, but for the price this is a great stereo system. Also, this set is getting harder to find so you'll be able to find the 10 series much easier!
Summary: I bought these as the main set of speakers for my audio set up. Even though the manufacturers state they are supposed to have a very good handling level the sound quality just isnt there. They are really small cabs which for me just didnt deliver the final sound. They were cheap though..very cheap...but if you are into your audio they are very much a secondary set and not your main cabs. Even though they were not pushed too hard one of mine died after 13 months..
Pros: looks ok i suppose , inexpensive..maybe for a reason , recommended..only on price.
Cons: im a bit biased as mine failed so reliability?
Summary: Excellent speakers, I bought some whafedale diamonds back in the early 90s when they first started and was very impressed then as I am now with the latest models. So in fact impressed I have ordered a couple more for my surround setup. Very clear and bright top end and decent bass for such a small speaker. Nice to know they still make some things in the UK as well.
Summary: Having rescued my Nikko amp from the loft I wanted to pair with a compact pair of speakers. Having read the reviews I opted for these, temped also by the £50 price tag. They are smaller than I had expected, but once connected i was truly surprised by the sound quality. Good bass, not overbearing fine for rock and bright high notes which sounded great in a violin concerto. I would definitely recommend these anyone wanting a small quality pair of speakers.
Summary: I owned a pair of the original diamond 's more years ago than i care to remember so was intrested to find out if they still lived up to the title of "legend".In one word yes they still rock however a couple of niggles,the fiirst being the poorly applied vinyl wrap and as other reviewers have mentioned the recessed speaker terminals are difficult to tighten unless you have hands the size of a child.In musical terms they have a nicely judged tonal balance plenty of bass...
