Wharfedale Diamond 220 HCP

 

The Diamond 220 HCP is a 5.1 standmount speaker package and the successor to the brilliant Diamond 100 HCP system launched in 2013. It's based around speakers from Wharfedale's new Diamond 200 series, including the Diamond 220 standmounts at the front...

Remarkable detail and texture ; Huge room-filling sound with seamlessly integrated bass ; Stylish lacquered finish and improved build

Conventional boxy shape

The Diamond 220 HCP is a sensational-sounding speaker system at a great price, made all the better by its improved build quality.

Wharfedale Diamond 220 HCP review

 

One of our favourite stereo standmounters in a reasonably-priced package – an ideal first step into surround sound

Precise, articulated sound ; Well integrated ; Taut and controlled punch

Not quite the last word in outright excitement

Punchy and detailed: an excellent first step into surround sound

Wharfedale Diamond 220 review

 

Best stereo speaker up to £200, Awards 2014. Having ironed out the creases of their predecessors, the 220s really are hard to fault

Wonderfully balanced and informative sound Expressive dynamics Fine integration Unfussy nature Overflowing with detail Deep, controlled bass Neatly finished

Nothing of note

In any case, the talented Diamond 220s will likely be the jewel in the crown of any budget – or even mid-range – set-up. Would we go as far as saying they’re one of the best hi-fi products you can buy sub-£200? Without a doubt. MORE: Awards 2014 - all...

Wharfedale Diamond 220 Speaker System Review

 

The Wharfedale Diamond 220 speaker system looks and sounds far better than its modest price tag would suggest. Were any THD measurements done for the D10 sub ? It seems to have a quite wide FR for a sub and I am wondering if it can be used also as a...

Superb sound for price; Bottom port cuts unwanted noise; Dressy cosmetics

Odd binding-post layout

Great Sound for everyday use.

 

Being driven by a laptop through a 30 year old amp. - I'm not a Hi-Fi geek so I needed something simple, bulletproof and acoustically flexible. Add to that they also needed to be sub 100 GBP - I win ! I'd give them 5 stars but the facia has shiny...

Great set of speakers, great service

 

Its the second pair of these diamond 220 speakers i have bought. These are acting as front left/right and rear left/right in a 5.1 system in my home office. The sound quality i get with these from my denon amp is very, very good for the size of...

Great features sound and looks

 

A surprising sonic performance at odds with some unassuming looks

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Still great speakers, now even cheaper!

 

You cannot fault Richer Sounds for service (they still pay for your parking, no questions asked), and at £99, these speakers are the best you will buy on a budget. Apparently need breaking in but sound fantastic out of the box. Sound much better than...

best speakers at this price! even topping the best

 

bought these over 8 months ago and they blew me away from the build quality, design, and truly amazing sound quality. I've listened to svs ultras and found them hard to listen to over 30-40 min, not with these! YES, comparing a £150 speaker to a £1000...
