Wharfedale are one of the most famous loudspeaker brands in the world today. With a huge R&D department and manufacturing facility making over 200 in-house drive unit designs, they are focused on open backed chassis technology, curved cabinets for reduced internal reflection, kevlar weave cones and powerful neodymium magnets to achieve incredible sound quality at each price point.
The forefront of Wharfedale's design philosophy for Diamond is to offer an unbeatable level of sonic performance within an accessible price point. The most recent series to be given the title of 'Diamond' is the Diamond 200, which follows the tradition flawlessly.
The 240 utilises many of the same innovative technologies and impressive sound quality as its little brother, the 230, seeing improvements across the midrange and lower-end frequencies, due to an additional driver. The 240 is the intermediate level floorstanding 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 fronts, or simply as an excellent yet affordable stereo hifi.
