Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 speakers
£150 £99.99 at AV Online (opens in new tab)
These What Hi-Fi? Award-winning speakers sell themselves on what really counts: sound quality. They're worth every penny thanks to near-perfect driver integration, superb delivery and impressive amounts of detail. We rated them five stars when we tested them at £150, so at under £100, they're a bargain.
Wharfedale Diamond 9.0
£59 £49 at Richer Sounds
(opens in new tab)At under £50 a pair, these mini speakers are great bang for buck. Ideal for desks, or as an upgrade to the speakers supplied with a microsystem, they feature a front port and punch out plenty of sound per pound. They launched at £100 but are now less than half that price.
As we said in our review, "the 9.1s look and feel like far more expensive speakers", and they also offer a level of sound quality that belies their price.
They may be a few years old now, and there's plenty of new competition, but good sound doesn't go out of fashion and at this price, they're still great value.
