"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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality sound without the pricetag! What an absolute bargain - these speakers ooze quality from the reassuring heft to the gloss black finish and the pair of cotton gloves that comes in the pack so you don't get finger smudges on the cases! The sound quality is unbelievable for the size and indeed the price. Combined with the sub the overall sound is full and solid while clear and precise. I simply can't believe such a good set can be had for a relatively low price. I've heard speaker sets costing three times this price that don't sound as good as this. Awesome. 01 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great sound for their size I've matched these great speakers to a Marantz NR1504 receiver and can't say how good they sound together. I love the look of the speakers (I have mine without the grills to show the cones) and I have been surprised by the amount of sound. Highly recommended. 09 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Speakers I bought these speakers in part exchange on some Boston Soundwares I couldn't get on with. The build is exceptional, really solid construction, easy to install thanks to the slot on the back of each speaker. I tested them with Avatar 3D, the sound filled the room even at low levels, the sub isn't boomy, but smooth bass instead. If you're looking for a stylish and small speaker package, really don't look any further. 07 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic looking and sounding..... I upgraded to these after reading reviews in what hifi and other independent reviews... I had been using a set of cheaper speakers which sounded ok but the difference these make is astounding, it's bought a real new meaning to "home cinema" the sound is fantastic, I can hear so much more of film audio these really pick out low sounds and are crystal clear to my ears.... The finish is also worth commenting on, they feel quality and look superb I chose them in black as they match my other audio equipment, with the grills off you get a view of the speakers and the silver surrounds, really well finished however you choose to display them. They were made even more of a bargain as I got them in the sale so they where even cheaper...... :) Hats of to richer sounds as well, excellent price, delivery and service. 01 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to set up and gives a great sound Having had the system installed for 1.5 months now I can definitely say this Wharfedale DX1 HCP surround sound system lives up to Wharfedales excellent reputation. I've had a pair of Wharfedale Celestion 15 speakers that must be 36 years old and working as good as when I purchased them yet I wondered if I would get as good a sound from much smaller speakers. I shouldn't have worried as the sound from the system is bright and natural and a pleasure to listen to. The speakers look good to as they have highly polished fifnish and a pair of cotton gloves are supplied with the speakers to keep the shine whilst fitting the units. I would have liked banana plugs to have been supplied with the speakers but I suppose they aren't really necessary as it's easy enough to wire in the speakers but I would prefer the security and ease of connection of plugs. I certainly recommend these Wharfedale DX1 HCP to anyone thinking of buying a surround sound system. Buy as a bundle from Richer, it's cheaper. 21 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent bang for your buck Firstly i'm not an audiophile but i like listening to music on something that can do the source justice. I bought these on recommendation over the tannoy hts 101, as i would be listening to music and was compromising over speaker size. The clarity is nearly on a par with my old bookshelf monitors, at half the size i only noticed as i'd forgotten to put the sub on. The difference added the depth to the music. Equally with the home cinema the detail reproduced even at low volume is fantastic. They are solidly built and reasuringly heavy. only gripe is id wire them up before putting on the bracket as it was a little fiddly 15 June 2013
