Wharfedale Diamond 12.1 Bookshelf or Standmount Speakers (Walnut Pearl)


  • 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.

    I’ve only had these. A couple of days not run in yet bet all I can say these are great. I’ve gone from my my neat motive 3 and these are far superior than my 15 year old motives which is a great speaker. But the treble and bass are great can’t wait for these to be run in. Very satisfied customer. Bean.

    they replaced monitor audio bronze speakers (single speaker posts). definitely an improvement. I only wish the diamonds had the same single posts. been through a few speakers lately. don’t feel any need to change now.

    These are brilliant speakers have no doubt. The sound quality is exceptional for a speaker of this size and they get better as they bed in, you won’t be disappointed if you purchase them. As a note, mine are driven by a Marantz amp.

    Wharfedale just keep on doing it, here we have a pair of quality budget entry speakers for a reasonable & modest outlay Build quality for the money is superb Had mine a couple of weeks now & being used continously are well & truly run in Sound, again for your outlay is excellent, keeping in mind you’re feeding them with a decent source, so no complaining here, In my humble opinion to me they sound very similar to my Q Acoustic 3020i with a familiar sound stage , separation & presence but no surprises there as they’re designed by the same guy Fink Anyway if you’re looking for great quality budget speakers without a ig outlay then buy with confidence, no sweat 😀
