Summary: Purchased this as part of a speaker requirement for our company boardroom. For this price, these are without doubt the best sounding speakers I have come across, and I consider myself an audiophile! One point knocked off for the design which looks a little similar to the rest in this field, but to be honest, you can't complain that much when you're paying for something that you can easily spend 4-5x more for similar sound quality.
Summary: I bought these speakers to play audio directly from a digital library via laptop and Tripath amplifier. Having down sized from a powerful yet dated rig, these compact speakers have proven to be an excellent choice. They produce enough volume to adequately fill my living room and the sound quality is excellent with surprising bottom end clarity. These appear to be well made and I'm satisfied with the great value for money.
another lovely built excellent quality speaker from Wharfdale

Summary: I used these speakers to upgrade my surround system. I haven't room for 7.2 so it has to be 5.1. I've matched these speakers with a pair of wharfedale valdus. The audio response from the Diamond 9th is excellent with lovely bass.
Summary: Bought these as I needed a small set due to the missus not wanting the newly decorated living room dominated by lots of "black ugly boxes" so after reading the reviews I finally decided on the Wharfedale Diamond 9.0 and I'm so glad I did. I wasn't really expecting much due to their size and price but I have to say they are excellent performers far more focused when the volume increases then I expected never sounding flabby or thin just basically musical.
Pros: best small speakers i've heard for my system. , unbelievable price. , proper speaker cable connections. , totally musical clarity.
Summary: I purchased these speakers along with the Denon DM39, and they're perfect for the job. I'm not going to draw comparisons with my high end hi-fi (Linn, Arcam, Naim and Monitor Audio GR60’s), as the total cost of this little Denon/Wharfdale set up is just a fraction of the cost of my other stuff, and less than the cost of my headphone amp. However, I bought this as a low cost small system to go into the extension of my house, and it’s just great.
Summary: Build quality is great for this price. I was expecting plastic rims around the drivers and on the bass port, but I was surprised to see that it is all solid metal. With a fabric tweeter and a kevlar woofer there’s nothing to complain about on build quality. The sound will improve a bit after some running-in time. You will definitely get better results if you place these speakers at least 15-20 inches away from the rear wall.
Pros: considering the price there are no flaws to note.
Cons: small and hard to use terminals. it may be easier
Summary: the wharferdale speakers are a great addition to complete you hi-fi with great output sound that it is a pleasure to listen to , with no stress and easy connection to set up, i highly recommend this product, thanks to the richer sounds staff for an easy transaction with my purchase. believe me they are the best.
