Description of the Wharfedale Floorstand Speakers Showroom Demo:
But then the allure of the entry-level for a brand isn't hard to understand. After all, the original Diamond shook up the hi-fi market by offering frankly ridiculous levels of performance from a design standing just 24cm tall,
That means cabinets with radiused joints, both where the box panels meet each other and between the baffle and the main enclosure, designed for strength and also to control any diffraction effects from sharp corners.
While the driver fixings are exposed for a more 'industrial' look than that of the elegant Diamond 11s, this does allow the use of individual grilles for each drive unit, which simply push on and then sit just proud of the baffle.
It's the kind of thinking more usual in much more expensive speakers, and to these eyes rather more appealing than the ubiquitous full length grille found on many a speaker.
Standing 94cm tall, the D330 is a two-and-a-half-way floorstanding design, using a soft-dome 25mm tweeter and a pair of 13cm woven Kevlar drivers – one for mid/bass, the other for bass.
That material is one Wharfedale now seems to be making its own, especially as the most celebrated user, Bowers & Wilkins, is now shifting completely from the iconic yellow cones to its latest silver-grey Continuum construction.
In the best basic black used in these Wharfedale Floorstand Speakers, the Kevlar weave adds a touch of interest to the look of the drivers, along with its structural advantages.
Behind the cone, the bass units use a basket ribbed for greater rigidity, with space behind the cone to avoid any distortion-creating reflections, while the long-throw 'motor' has a new one-piece pole-plate with a copper cap, designed to reduce inductance and control the magnetic flux.
The magnets are a ceramic formulation used in Wharfedale Floorstand Speakers for over 50 years, while the lightweight cone surround is made from foamed polyether.
Fine-Tuned Crossover Components:
The output of the Wharfedale Floorstand Speakers' tweeter and woofers are carefully combined by a thoroughly researched crossover developed using Wharfedale's Advanced Software and Listening Iteration system.
Each crossover is carefully evaluated using a wide range of music, with the emphasis being on the lifelike reproduction of voices and instruments in addition to the dynamics of the musical performance.
Crossover components feature low-loss polypropylene capacitors and laminated core inductors for optimum transfer of the music signal.
Acoustically Profiled Cabinet:
The acoustically profiled speaker cabinet features a 28mm-thick front baffle profiled at the edges to reduce diffraction edge reflections at mid to high frequencies.
Critical bracing of the cabinet panels contributes to the eradication of audible resonance and, combined with the rounded cabinet edges, yields a rigid base on which to mount the tweeter and woofer.
In addition, the cabinet walls are lined with a specially developed internal fiber, chosen for its outstanding absorbent qualities across a wide bandwidth.
The result is that the listener hears the Wharfedale Floorstand Speaker output unsullied by unwanted colorations caused by panel vibration or internal resonances, revealing more of the detail of the musical performance.
