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. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:

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 5áby great sound not the speakers i originally went to hear not what we wanted but on a staff recommendation tried these way better than what we went to hear love these speakers 23 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Impressive! Really impressed with quality of sound and also with a great saving of ú100. 24 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby great product Packs a surprising punch for the small size of the speakers and sub. Great for a room with limited space. 27 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Top Sound Quality For Reasonable Price I have had these speakers for two months and I am still impressed by the sound quality they produce. I am using them in a square shape room 5m x 4.5m with the TV and sub in one corner running off a Yamaha RX677. The first thing I noticed was the quality build of the cabinets. They are solid weighty boxes with high gloss finish. The dedicated centre speaker produces a crisp clear sound they my old speaker lacked. The sub produces superb low sounds that you feel vibrate through the room and it does this without distortion. The fronts and rears offer an excellent range of Hz and clarity. They handle footsteps and rain drops with clarity and equally handle the demanding sounds of fast action movies. Perhaps the best critic is my wife who previously never enjoyed my surround sound system, but she pointed out with these speakers the system doesn't need to be set at a high volume to be enjoyed. Mr Wharfedale, the wife loves it! 16 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Smart looking speaker set, great sound Didn't want the speakers to be too small as they are replacing an old hifi set in quite a large room, these look neat, sound great and are a good size, overall not bad value for money considering I could have spent thousands. 14 February 2016
