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 Value For Money

 

Bought for a small room as I needed speakers that would go in the corners. I tried them out in the larger living room and they were ok but lacking authority. Back in the small room they were perfect with plenty of bass. The mids and highs were a little...

A Wharfedale win again - good all rounder

 

These Wharfedale speakers really offer a great deal of clarity and weight to the bass when listening to Music. Movies are great, these speakers are much better suited and capable of dealing with duties up front, they would be wasted as rears because...

Great All Rounder Speakers

 

I bought this product AGAIN, a few weeks back for my dad for christmas, however I have owned a pair for the last year and they sound incredibly crisp and well defined in how they space out the vocals and bass with neither being over powering. Couldnt...

Best budget speakers Around

 

Voted Best speakers under £200 in 2014 and I haven't seen anything in 4 years that has bettered these, A true Bargain that compliments any music system.
