Developed in collaboration with Karl-Heinz Fink, one of the most successful loudspeaker designers on the planet, The new Diamond 12.1 has just been given 5 star approval by What Hi-fi
12.1 is a conventional bookshelf or standmount speaker and is a true all-rounder that embodies the legacy of the Wharfedale Diamond series. This ‘hi-fi speaker features a compact enclosure with power and detail. Ideal for 2-channel hi-fi systems, it is also suitable for immersive home theatre regardless of room size and application.
The new Klarity cone material is a Polypropylene and mica blend which adds rigidity to prevent ﬂexing and supports a lightweight cone with high rigidity, reduced colouration and ultra-fast response. The 25mm woven polyester dome tweeter delivers open and smooth extended high frequencies.
The rear-ported enclosure is sized so the internal volume compliments the drive unit system for the desired sonic result. A multi-layered sandwich design subdues the distinct characters of the cabinet’s ‘sound’. Even the resonant properties of the glue between the layers has been measured to identify the top combination. Basically, they sound great.
With dimensions of 312mm x 180mm x 278 mm ( H x W x D ) the Diamond 12.1 are perfect for bookshelf or stand mounting and with 2 year manufacturer warranty you really can't go wrong.
