”Wharfedale delivers movie magic on a small scale”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 award-winner.

High quality satellite speakers

The perfect bridge between small but poor-sounding satellite speakers and full-size hi-fi ones, the DX2 satellite speakers are the ideal size for quality home cinema. The two-way design features silk dome tweeters for detailed, super-smooth treble and woven polypropylene woofers for a spacious and dynamic-sounding mid-range. Sealed cabinets mean you’re free to place them close to a wall without compromising the sound quality.

Dedicated centre speaker
Rather than using an identikit fifth speaker for the centre channel, the DX-2 uses a dedicated speaker with the ideal twin woofer layout. This not only sits neatly under your TV but also offers a more spacious sound with vocals. Even when dialogue is set against a riotous soundtrack, the DX-2’s centre speaker makes it easy to follow.

Powerful subwoofer
Helping to give this Wharfedale speaker package real clout is a powerful subwoofer. Using a meaty 120 watt amplifier to drive a 20cm bass cone gives the DX-2 not just deep and powerful bass but also agile and dynamic response. Whether you're listening to music or watching films, the DX-2 subwoofer gives the package genuine full scale sound.

Smooth good looks – gloss and leather effect
It’s not just sound quality where the DX-2 scores highly, it’s with style, too. Smoothly curved and solid cabinets are finished in leather effect vinyl with gloss black fronts. The speaker drive units are highlighted with individual grilles – also handy for protecting against prying fingers. Thanks to their compact footprint, the speakers can easily be placed where conventional speakers won’t fit – such as on a mantelpiece or shallow shelf.

For an immersive 5.1 speaker system without the bulk, the DX-2 hits all the right notes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Bought these speakers month ago very good sound and compact

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very underwhelmed Pickedupmy new Denon 2700 AV and while waiting on my DX2 sysy to arrived hooked up a pair of old TiVo bookshelf speakers and a single Eltax speaker I had in the garage. The sound was excellent and could hear parts of music I couldnt dream of hearing with my old Panasonic home theatre system. This only heightened my anticipation and expectation of setting up a tuned 5.1 system. However once all set up I was very disappoint with the sound of audio. This said the sound for movies was very good but suspect this is down to the Denon as opposed to the DX-2. I opted for the DX-2 as a compromise between bulkier bookshelf systems as I am far from an audiophile but still expected more from wharfedale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big sound from small boxes. Bought this just over a week ago. Ordered online on the Friday, received next working day on the Monday. Four satellite speakers, one larger centre speaker and a subwoofer. With a sort of leather and shiny surface the speakers themselves have the look and feel of excellent quality. I had already set the wires up to my Yamaha RX-V671 receiver. The satellite speakers were very easy to place, with two on stands and two on the wall. Reviews that I have seen do confuse about the weight of these speakers suggesting 2kg pcs. The speakers individually weigh 1.2 kilos and feel very light but at the same time not cheap. The wire connectors in the speakers are quite small but I found it very easy to place the bare wires inside. It may not be the best to use banana plugs. The sound for such small units is extremely good and the centre speaker in particular gives very good clear dialogue. The subwoofer is a lot smaller than my previous model, but can pack a great punch and deliver very realistic sounds that make you feel it rather than just hear it. Overall I am very pleased with this package and the price of £329 from Richer Sounds appears to be a bargain. For people with not such big rooms or with wives who do like big speakers, this is ideal and I would recommend it without hesitation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great speakers - but no universal mount thread I purchased the Wharfedale 5.1 DX2 speakers along with the Denon AVR-X2700H. I was a little worried that the speakers might be underpowered given their size (I didn't want anything too big), but thankfully its not a problem at all. The combo sound fantastic and I would highly recommend both. The only issue I've had is that I was expecting the speakers to have universal mount thread at the back of them - the instructions even show this, however that thread is missing (presumably to cheapen the manufacture of the speakers), this has unfortunately caused me problems because I had intended to mount them on the wall at an angle using universal brackets (hence the loss of one star). The flat head screw fixings that are on the speaker mean that they need to be mounted flush against the wall and cannot be angled. I'm therefore now considering options here - a little disappointed because I'll most likely have to spend additional money on stands which I hadn't planned for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic speakers! After having my old Yamaha set for god knows how long I decided it was a good time to upgrade and oh boy do these sound great! They certainly make a difference and on top of that customer service from reading branch was great too! Did I mention the price?
