A High-Value Best-Seller: Wharfedale Diamond 10.2 Bookshelf Loudspeakers Deliver Low-End Authority, Midrange Liquidity, and High-End Smoothness What can an extra $100 buy you in today's high-end market? In the case of Wharfedale's 10.2 bookshelf speaker , more than you probably think. For starters: Increased bottom end. More extension. A richer midrange. Heightened realism and instrumental accuracy. The big brother to Wharfedale's top-rated 10.1 model, the Wharfedale 10.2 does all this and more. Sporting a larger cabinet and driver, it features all of its smaller sibling's characteristics while delivering extra benefits. The Power of the Larger Woofer and Strong Cabinet Walls How does Wharfedale do it? Improving on past award-winning designs, the 10.2 features a soft-dome tweeter custom-made to present clear, high frequencies up to 30kHz . A 6.5-inch woofer and twin rear-firing ports bring up the bottom end and yield magnificent punch. Other enhancements, ranging from a low-profile chassis to stronger cabinet walls and a composite front-baffle panel, all contribute to reduced vibration, lower distortion, and increased rigidity.

The compact form extends to functionality. On the back, unlike many speakers whose parallel terminals cause problems with or outright prevent connections with thick cables, the 10.2 boasts offset bi-wire terminals that ensure the best-possible connectivity and allow for
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I really don't consider myself capable of providing a review since more than half of my hearing is gone--one of the joys of old age. That admitted, I thought the sound superb, better even than B&W. It is amazing how few people think for themselves and buy only by the brand name or the price (the higher the cost, the better the product, right?). All I can say is that for me the sound is glorious. I wish I could say why. For that, consult the excellent review of a Mr.Goldberg from Arizona and his concomitant dialogue with a fellow reviewer on Amazon. They (Mr. Goldberg in particular) get to the nitty-gritty rather than try to impress others. As a result, I bought the speakers (with stands), and when I heard them, I damn near cried. Oh what the hell! I did cry. What sound!
I bought the Wharfedale Diamond 10.2 speakers to use in my office where I have limited space. I had planned to use Bose 301 Series III speakers in the space but I could not place them adequately for good performance. I wanted a small yet capable speaker and decided on the Wharfedale's after reading all of the positive feedback for them. Since hooking them up to my receiver I have been spending as much time as I can listening to different recordings and I continue to be amazed at the added depth, richness and clarity. I am amazed at how good these sound even at lower volume levels. These are a great fit for my space and I would recommend them to anyone with a need for a high quality bookshelf speaker.
People love to give their purcshses 5 stars, not sure why. These are very good speakers, clear and bright, but not untrue to the input. You will not get thumping bass out of 6.5" drives but the sound is balance and enjoyable. I respect my neighbors so we typically play them at moderate levels. I enjoy these and would buy them again. One note: these speakers need a break in period of several hours before they really perform.
