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...
Summary: Bought these as my first step into setting up a home system, so it doesn't get much more beginner than me! I decided on these because of high praise for it's price point and I'm really satisfied; they are about as good as most say they are. I paired them with a cambridge topaz Am5 (blk) amp if you, like me, just want someone to shed some light into the world of amps and they run absolutely fantastic.
