The Wharfedale 220 bookshelf speakers are big performers with a high degree of refinement so don't be deceived by their compact dimensions.
The two-way Diamond 220s have a bass port concealed in a plinth at the foot of the cabinet rather than in the front or rear panel, just like their Diamond 230 big brothers. In addition to delivering a smoother air flow and therefore less distortion at low frequencies, this also makes these speakers easier to position in small to medium listening rooms because they can be placed within just 50mm of the rear wall without compromising the performance.
The Wharefedale Diamond 220s have a well-balanced musical delivery, packed with detail and smoothly flowing bass to make them a great choice in terms of sound quality - they will provide an incredible improvement over the sound of budget speakers, such as those included in a micro system for instance. And the finish of the Diamond 220's upgraded MDF cabinets shines out above that of the competition: Great looking speakers with performance to match.
