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 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.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product and service This product is superb value for money and great sound quality. Richer sounds staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable. 27 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent sound, very impressed Pleasantly surprised with these speakers, connected up to my new Marantz NR 1605 AV Receiver and cant believe how much better the sound is compared to an all in one cinema system I returned to another retailer due to a fault. The sound whilst playing or streaming music is more than enough to upset the neighbours, deep crisp quality sound. Using them for 5.1 cinema sound is also excellent Top marks ! Delivered in a few days of ordering from Richer sounds as well. I would recommend them. 24 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good spec Well priced and very crisp clean sound. Would highly recommend to anyone with a slim budget. They look great on the wall and not too heavy. 28 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by well designed and good sound Received these as an exchange for a faulty Boston system. These are obviously bigger which aids the sound presentation but not too big to dominate our small lounge. The speakers are finished in a gloss black which will need to be considered re finger prints. 21 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value for money. I bought this speaker package at Christmas and have been very impressed so far, the only issue I have had is one speaker was crackling but a quick trip back to RS and they swapped no problem. I use these speakers 75% home cinema 25% music, and must say I've been impressed on both counts, also they're a nice looking units so keeps my wife happy too as some ssimilar priced units have huge sub's. In this price range I'd definitely recommend the Wharfedale and also Richer Sounds. 25 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic sound for not a lot of money I replaced a Sony surround with these and could not believe the difference, the base speaker is turned right down as it is so powerful, I am really pleased with this system and would highly recommend them. 25 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolute must buy I bought a new marantz ud7007 and na1504 system about a year ago and wanted some new smaller speakers to compliment the system, spent a while testing out various speaker packages, but for the money and sound quality these are an absolute bargain, nice crisp crystal clear sound with the bass adding that extra clout when watching movies 27 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good quality Speakers give great sound and look as good as they sound and cope with all the watts you give them 11 August 2014
