”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 Very impressed Got these about a month ago. Using them with a DH790. The sound is so much better than i was expecting for an entry level system. Replaced a soundbar that was high end but never really hit the spot. Set up in a medium sized room and movies (streaming & blu ray) are so much more immersive now. Very good service from Lloyd at Watford. Good price, fast delivery. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! It was set up today and what a difference. My son and I took our time and balanced the speakers as directed. I am looking forward tonight watching Saving Private Ryan in surround sound, it should be brilliant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive considering the size The speakers are only small but the sound watching movies is pretty decent. The satellites are spot on. The centre speaker is okay - sounds a bit flat sometimes. Subwoofer shakes the house, I find it does not work so good in autosense so I leave it on all the time instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wharfedale DX2 February 2021 Wharfedale DX2 February 2021 I purchased the… February 2021 I purchased the Wharfedale DX2 5.1 speaker package. What a great set of speakers this is. These speakers give a lovely warm sound either when playing music or watching films. The centre speaker provides excellent crisp dialog combining seamlessly with the satellite speakers and the sub woofer. I would thoroughly recommend this package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent receiver I called to order an AV Receiver which unfortunately was out of stock. John at Edinburgh branch took my details, what I was looking for, managed to advise a comparable system with speakers. We ended up with the Yamaha RX4A with the Wharfedale DX2 speakers and it sounds superb!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for small speakers I bought these to replace my tannoy speakers and so glad I did as the sound is far superior, crystal clear with good bass. They were voted best speakers under £500 by what hifi and I can see why

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound for the money! I switched from a sound bar to a 5.1 setup, having looked at a number of options I settled on the Wharfedale speakers as they fit nicely within the existing space, thinking I can upgrade to larger speakers when my young children are a bit older. Now I have them in place, I’m not sure I will need to. The sound is excellent and the speakers relatively inconspicuous for a surround setup, and gives me the flexibility to add atmos speakers down the line. Would certainly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but beautiful Superb speakers. Arrived very will packed. Set up was easy. screw fixings for wires in back of speakers. The sound/power is perfect for our room... its 3.5m x 4.5m .. so we dont need a huge system, this speaker package works so well with the Onkyo TXL50, we will never use it to its limits ..it fills our room with controlled sound , its very accurate and specific. The Woofer is also very controllable... i like to play music and concert DVD etc as well, so its no effort to up the base if i need that bit more... each satellite , front , rear and centre speaker also has tweeters which helps give a terrific dynamic and powerful sound , full of depth but light as a feather when required. Wharfdale have excelled with these speakers and for the money have the looks and sounds of a far more expensive system. I would recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I installed these speakers about a month ago after reading good reviews and I was not disappointed. The sound is very good and extremely clear. Bass is strong without being overwhelmed, although this is very controlleble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Discrete Small, discrete and they pack a punch for their size, I married them up with a Denon RX-2600 , I was going to go for the Q speaker model but the sizing was wrong for my room, so I went with these, they didn’t disappoint, I made a bracket for the centre speaker that sits directly under my tv because it’s on a wall bracket I move it around a bit. I’d buy them again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sound... shame about cosmetic quality Bought to replace faulty DX1,,, Sound quality is EXCELLENT and CANNOT fault but the cosmetic finish compared to previous model DX1 is in my opinion on the poor side. DX1s were polished black high gloss finish / 3D Wharfedale monogram on front / screw inserts to fix to speaker stands / rounded shape / removeable grill very easy on the eye and looked like a quality product.....DX2s are faux leather finish / square in shape / printed monogram / NO SCREW INSERT for speaker stands / grills not removeable and do not shout quality like the DX1s ?? Having said all that I am very pleased with my new speakers and will no doubt get used to the new look, as quoted previously sound quality is excellent they were set up automatically via the amplifier (which is also new) and the audio is far better than my manual set up on the old amp. Please don't let me put you off as they are a very good speakers overhaul, would have given 5 stars but for liking the look of my DX1s better. ....JP

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb service for a great system I wanted a system for the tv. Having seen a basic package I was shopping around and saw a package I thought would do everything. But it wasn’t from richer. Sooooo .... I sent them a link. And asked if they could put me together something like it. The return email was not only a better system package which they put together based on specs, but they beat the price! Purchased one day, delivered the next. Took a while to put it in, but wow . Sounds from heaven, bass. Real definition!!!! I love it. Thank you telesales

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the money I have now been using this speaker package for some days and have to say I have noticed a clear jump in the level of detail and texture to the sound compared to my old set-up. For small satellite speakers the Wharfedales sound suprisingly large, with plenty of space and air around voices and sound effects. The sub-woofer helps the overall effect by providing a firm and taut bass, but not being too boomy. Looked at overall I see this package as something of a bargain.
