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 are 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 two-way speakers of quality. This drive unit array ensures not only a detailed and crisp treble response but also a natural and uncompressed mid-range for clear vocals and pin-point accuracy.
TAKING CENTRE STAGE
Matching the four satellite speakers is a dedicated centre speaker. Unlike some systems which simply use a fifth satellite for the centre, the DX1 system utilises 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.
GETTING THE LOW DOWN ON THE SUB
Helping to give this Wharfedale speaker package real clout is a powerful subwoofer. Using a 150 watt 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 TO BOOT
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.
