The Wharfedale Diamond 240 Speakers are a giant among floor-standing speakers and part of the new generation of Diamond Speakers.
They are NOT a replacement of the Legendary Diamond 10 Series, more of an evolution on an already ICON SPEAKER. With each speaker weighing in at just over 25kg, lovers of rich, deep bass-heavy soundtracks will be quickly won over by the Wharfedale Diamond 240 Speakers
Wharfedale Diamond 240 Speakers
The Wharfedale Diamond 240 Speakers, continue the boundary-pushing and physics-changing philosophy which has kept Wharfedale top of the tree and the Diamond 240 is a fine example of this. Wharfedale took the already impressive Diamond 10 series and deconstructed it to create this 11th generation of speaker. In went woven kevlar bass drivers, ribbed for extra strength giving you much more consistency and precision in audio reproduction. The Diamond 240 possesses a much wider sound-stage giving individual instruments their own space to perform.
With the unique bass reflex port system, Wharefdale had a total rethink which is about as out of the box as you’re ever likely to see in a speaker design. The Diamond 159 features a brand new style of bass reflex porting. When normally positioned on the rear or front of the speaker the Wharfedale Diamond 240 Speakers, instead ports the bass, well, down at the base! An integral plinth ‘lifts’ the speaker meaning the speaker is both easier to position in a room with no walls to take into account, and bass output is made more efficient. It’s a groundbreaking redesign which breathes new life into an old concept.
The Wharfedale Diamond 240 Speakers utilises many of the same innovative technologies and impressive sound quality as its little brother, the Wharfedale Diamond 230, seeing improvements across the mid-range and lower-end frequencies, due to an additional driver. The 240 is the intermediate level floor-standing speaker in the series and offers a rich, room filling sound while retaining a relatively compact and unobtrusive physical profile.
Ideal for home cinema applications as the front speakers, or simply as excellent, yet affordable stereo hi-fi speakers.
