Product Description

The Wharfedale Diamond A2 Powered Speakers could be considered as a just-add-a-source hi-fi system – a compact and practical substitute for the multiple boxes and racks that make up a room-hogging set-up of separates.

Overview

The Diamond Active Series from Wharfedale, delivers wireless connectivity with a difference. Whilst not the first stereo speakers to offer integrated amplification and Bluetooth connectivity, Wharfedale's clever ‘true wireless’ technology ensures greater flexibility than many such designs. This, combined with award-winning sonic know-how, delivers levels of convenience and performance that separate the Diamond Active Series from the rest of the wireless speaker crowd.

Wharfedale’s Diamond Active speakers work differently to conventional wireless or powered speakers. They include the H1, an advanced Wharfedale wireless hub to which the playback device is paired via aptX Bluetooth (sonically superior to standard Bluetooth codecs). The H1 hub then sends the left and right audio signals to the appropriate speaker via uncompressed wireless transmission, allowing greater freedom in terms of positioning. As well as removing the need for the speakers to be connected together via a cable – that’s why they call it ‘true wireless’ – the fact that each speaker incorporates its own 50W amplifier helps to ensure consistent, fully optimised stereo sound.

To enable interference-free wireless transmission, the H1 hub avoids the often-crowded 2.4GHz frequency band, focusing on 5.8GHz instead. It's intelligent wireless module has the ability to switch automatically between frequencies if needed, thus avoiding any local interference wherever the speakers are sited. Each speaker can be placed up to 20 metres from the hub, giving exceptional positioning flexibility; the only other requirement is that both speakers need to be plugged into mains power.

The Diamond A2 sports dual proprietary 6.5 inch woven Kevlar mid/bass drivers – as featured in the multi-award winning Diamond 230. The cones incorporate semi-elliptical ‘break-up’ areas, which smooth the response throughout the audible range, while rear-firing reflex ports augment the bass.

The 1 inch fabric dome tweeter is also derived from the Diamond 200 Series, incorporating a precision-drive magnet system and a meticulously designed waveguide around the diaphragm for optimal dispersion. The drive units are combined via a sophisticated crossover network, specifically developed to optimise the performance of the Diamond Active speakers’ integrated amplifier/driver configuration, delivering a cohesive performance that is bold and engaging, yet also impressively refined.
