WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 12.1 SPEAKERS
OMG-inducing audio has long been relegated to only the fattest wallets. But not anymore. Thanks to intelligent design aided by the advancements of modern computer simulation, it’s the music through Diamond 12 that’ll leave you speechless, not its price.
Collaboration with one of the most successful loudspeaker designers on the planet, Karl-Heinz Fink, has helped produce Wharfedale’s most impressive Diamond series to date, and your all-access pass to the exclusive world of refined audio engineering.
The feature 25mm textile dome tweeters and 130mm advanced PP mid/bass cone drivers,. on the WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 12.1 SPEAKERS. Combined with a slightly larger chassis, Diamond 12.1 offers deeper bass response and wider dynamic range, perfect for medium sized listening rooms.
Precision-made magnet systems incorporate aluminium compensation rings to cull distortion and discordant tones caused by intermodulation. Wharfedale’s most advanced Diamond motor system ever built now puts you in perfect harmony with your music.
A new formulated blend of polypropylene and mica significantly reduce flex to create a rigid, lightweight cone with low colouration and lightning-fast response. So, your new Diamond’s play harder, handle more power, and perform flawlessly, every time.
Dome tweeters incorporate woven polyester film and high-loss coatings to generate silky smooth high-frequency extension. And with driver systems optimised for wide dispersion, vocals, woodwinds, and strings sections ripple out, wall-to-wall, bathing you in sound.
New drive cones include custom-engineered ribbing combined with a low-damping surround. This increases cone rigidity and reduces colouration, giving you a more dynamic, more detailed listening experience – one that honours (not colours) your favourite recordings.
Air core inductors, typically found in the most expensive loudspeakers, produce the lowest distortion of all inductor types. Combined with acoustic LKR 24db crossover topology, it creates incredibly fast, clean bass response. It’s high-end thinking for low-frequency brilliance.
Computer simulated design intelligently braces opposing cabinet walls using specific wood composites to create Diamond’s most effective reduction in cabinet resonance. So your favourite recordings shine in vibrant technicolour, not the colour of your speaker cabinets.
Voice coils are wound on high-power epoxy/glass fibre bobbins seen only in the most expensive loudspeaker models. The reduced distortion and increased power handling means you can go loud, real loud, and still enjoy incredible clarity.
