Wharfedale Diamond 12.3 Floor standing Speaker (pair) Black Oak
'Refined, entertaining and affordable floorstanders' - What HiFi? 5 Stars
"Best Floorstanding Speaker under £500" - What Hi-Fi? 5 Star Award Winner 2021
The more compact Wharfedale DIAMOND 12 series floorstanding options, the DIAMOND 12.3 doesn't lose any accuracy and musicality of the standmount (bookshelf) options. With enhanced presence and power, the DIAMOND 12.3 is refined and the perfect, affordable floorstanding speaker for 2-channel hi-fi systems, or as the front pair of a seriously impressive home theatre system.
Configured in a 2.5 way system with exceptional crossover technology, the DIAMOND 12.3 utilises dual 130mm (5”) KlarityTM drivers for impactful yet refined mid-range and bass frequencies, while the 25mm (1”) dome tweeter delivers open and smoothly extended high frequencies.
Klarity Affords focus
NEW Klarity cone material, which was made from a blend of polypropylene and mica adds sturdiness to the model to reduce flexing, to enable a lightweight cone with high rigidity, low colouration and lightning-fast response.
Low Colour and Expression
The Klarity cone is fitted with a low-damping surround, which gives both low colouration and expressive dynamics. As by simulating many different kinds of cone shapes and adding ribs, more support is provided, a falt curve was achieved without restoring to a high damping surround, thereby striking the ideal balance.
A Magnet Of Forces
A precision-made magnet system with an aluminium compensation ring to minimise the effect of variations in inductance as the voice coil travels. This contributes to a lack of distortion and intermodulation generated by the motor system.
