This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around.

Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.

Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.

Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).

45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.

If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*

* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty.

"A neat blend of trad design and stylishly compact dimensions, for the money these stylish speakers get an awful lot right". What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.

Five-star award winners

Fresh from their five-star review, the Wharfedale DX-1 HCP speakers are a must for any home cinema shortlist. Specially designed for home cinema use, this mini speaker package combines all the sonic qualities that Wharfedale is renowned for, with neat and compact design.

Real hi-fi speakers
Using a separate silk dome tweeter and polypropylene woofer unit, the satellites are genuine quality two-way speakers. This drive unit array ensures not only a detailed and crisp treble but also a natural and uncompressed mid-range for clear vocals and pin-point accuracy.

Bespoke centre speaker design
Matching the four satellite speakers is a dedicated centre speaker. Unlike some systems that simply use a fifth satellite for the centre, the DX1 system uses a bespoke design. Twin woofers help give a wider spread of sound and also add reinforcement to vocals, making them easier to follow, especially during complex sound tracks.

Deep bass
Helping to give this Wharfedale speaker package real clout is a powerful subwoofer. Using a 150W digital amplifier to drive a 20cm bass cone gives the DX1 not just a deep and powerful bass but also an agile and dynamic bottom end. Whether you're listening to music or watching films, the DX1 subwoofer gives the package genuine full-scale sound.

Good looking too
Where the DX-1HCP package really scores over some of its rivals is in its style and build quality. Smoothly curved and solid cabinets are finished in gloss black for a look that wouldn't disgrace speakers costing twice as much. The drive units look striking, too, with their metal surrounds. If you prefer a more subdued style then plain speaker grills are included for all speakers.

Small but authoritative, stylish yet purposeful, the Wharfedale DX-1HCP is a class act.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Brighton Staff !!! Purchased this and a Yamaha AV unit from the Brighton shop and the help and advise was fantastic Went back to the shop a few days later ( Boxing Day) to purchase a lead and the place was packed but again the service was just superb highly recommend 30 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 the product sounds great was recommended by staff that these were the best in our budget. the have a rich sound and in our living room sound supurb. 27 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value speakers I've had these speakers going for a week now and I am very pleased. They replace Pioneer Kuro speakers which were mounted on to the side of the TV. I don't think I have the speakers dialled in 100% yet, but some more tweaking will give me a better sound in the mid-range. They are currently powered via a Pioneer VSX-919AH amp. The centre speaker was a very impressive addition and I heard sounds I hadn't ever heard before watching Alien on Blu-Ray despite watching the film hundreds of times on a few different systems. The speakers are also detailed enough that you can hear the compression on netflix streams now, which is pretty annoying! I wasn't sure if I should go for something a bit more expensive, but given that our TV and speakers are mounted next to a shared wall in a semi-detached, anything more powerful would be a waste of money as these don't get pushed anywhere near their limit. 03 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wharefedale DX1 HCP Good sound. Speakers well made and look good. Easy to connect to amp. Overall would recommend them 29 October 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by You pay for name, not sound Connected to a decent Denon amplifier this set produces uninspiring, average sound. No matter what's the source - everyday mp3 or highest definition DTS, it's just this usual "small speaker + ambitious sub" kind of sound you get from any home cinema/gaming 5.1 set. Lots of bass, very little clarity. Recap - not bad, just nothing special. 24 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful looks and sound, but no speaker wires included A highly attractive, high gloss finish (there are cotton gloves tucked away in each box), and great purposeful looks (especially without the detachable Grill covers),combine aesthetics with a rich crisp sound and mellow bass. The effective centre speaker unit pushes out defined dialog, a great leap forward from my old entry level Sony.While the Sub , one of the most attractive I've seen in a while easily handles rich booming effects. All in all I am very happy, the only down side is there were no wires/connections of any kind in the box, luckily I was upgrading an old system and had all the necessary leads& speaker wires, something to bear in mind if considering purchase. 22 September 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very decent, especially for the price After much deliberation ended up choosing this speaker set and have been very pleased with performance. Was advised that they maybe wouldn't pair that well with my Yamaha AVR but I have no real complaints. Nice full sound and do a good job with music as well as movies. Really come alive when the volume goes up with a decent Blu-Ray in though. For a full versatile 5.1 package on a budget will be very hard to beat. 02 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value. Fantastic service as ever, great product price wow. They are so heavy proper quality. 29 August 2015
