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

Nice Speakers

 

Nicely made and presented these speakers are good quality with good performance for their size. The price is amazingly good.

Fantastic sound for small speakers

 

I bought these speakers last month after having done quite thorough research about my options. The designated 'music room' in my flat is quite small, so I was looking for speakers which could deliver a full, well-rounded sound with a compact size....

Top speakers

 

These speakers replaced my ageing mission 760i's which I've had for over 25 years! Fab speakers in their day. I went for the 220s based on the 5 star review on 'what hifi'. Surprised to find they were a little bigger than my old speakers as wharfdale...

Great product, great price!

 

Replacement speakers, they have exceeded expectations. Not expensive but perfect for the room and are well made and easy to set up. My vinyl collection is re-born!

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Good sound from a compact speaker

 

A good, crisp sound but not the clarity or depth that my Mission 700-2s still deliver after about 40 years' use. But may be that is an unfair comparison as I assume their modern equivalent would be quite a bit more expensive than these Wharfedales....
