Wharfedale Diamond 225 loudspeaker Review
March 13, 2017 § Leave a comment
” This is an exquisitely recorded production. Every bit of Debussy’s poetic fingerings and soft-pedal expression captured on the paper Welte-Mignon rolls was “re-animated” on a carefully restored 1923 Feurich-Welte reproducing piano and recorded with a stereo pair of vintage Neumann KM 83 microphones. Through the Diamond 225s, Debussy’s piano sound was larger than I expected, tangibly solid and surprisingly three-dimensional. To the Wharfedales’ great credit and my pleasure, I enjoyed wooden hammers, metal strings, and some little sense of the piano’s soundboard.
