”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 immerse 5.1 speaker system without the bulk, the DX-2 hits all the right notes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Home Cinema upgrade The DX2 speakers were bought as an upgrade to a very old Sony surround sound system. Initially we thought we could just replace the speakers but the speaker upgrade quickly found the amp wanting. The amp has now been upgraded to a new Denon avr s660h which has excellent auto setup features that map the speaker output and positions to the seating place in the room to get the best cinema experience. The wharfedale dx2 speakers are ideally suited for the intended purpose I.e running a 5.1 surround system and provide excellent sound across the audio range and provide great front, surround and bass for film watching but a bit limp when running stereo only - so would not suggest they would replace a decent set of hifi speakers. It is also worth noting that the DX2’s are 4 ohm speakers and older amps generally don’t allow you to change the speaker resistance value - so you might not get the best out of them - although the guys at Richer sounds advised that they would still work with an amp rated for 8 ohm speakers ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb product, and price I have a main system, and needed a second one for our recently built garden room. These fitted the bill, and after installation, we are not disappointed. Excellent qality, build, and cheap, what's not to like!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Sound Quality - But Poorly Built I was soo happy with this purchase, as I had read the reviews and seen what was on offer for the cost, it couldn't be beaten, however Wharfedale have really missed a trick here. One of the first annoying issues I had was I was lead to believe by the store any 3rd party wall mounts would work with the DX2's, but this wasn't the case, so if you are purchasing these beware they can only be placed flat onto the walls with screws. Unless you do some DIY with the back plate and a nut a washer, this is because the UK version is different to the EU version. So my problems began from January 2021, with little to no real use of the speakers, just daily tv, kids watching cartoons and the news. It's safe to say the DX2 5.1 system is great when it works, however, since purchasing in Dec 2020, I had a faulty subwoofer, whereby it just made a strange noise one morning and never powered on again, then I had a fault to the centre speaker, which was just crackling at low volumes from this must of been from day 1, admittedly I did miss this because its at such low level and the other speakers mask it, but the issue must of been there since I purchased them. It has really put me off purchasing Wharfedale again. I am just awaiting the next failure to happen, like I said they are great when they work but it's always seems like a time bomb for the next fault. Credit to the RicherSounds in Solihull, they did replace the items, but I think the overall delay in stock, poor build quality or lack or quality assurance, whichever it was, Wharfedale has really dented by confidence in them and I wouldn't recommend or purchase there brand ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound Had these speakers for a few weeks now, replacing an older sony system, for the reasonable price I am extremely happy with the quality of sound and power, also love the look and colour, very stylish, definitely recommend if you require a mid range system

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value , perfect home cinema option Very pleased with this. Bought as bundle with Sony home cinema amp strdn1080. Nice option as didn’t want a sound bar and wanting to link it up to projector and tv. Appears well made and came very well packaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing set of speaker My first set of some proper 5.1 speaker and love these. I was not looking for something too complex. These deliver more than what I need with crisp sound and deep base. Richer sound guys were super helpful and sourced white ones for me as they were out of stock. The customer service is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good setup I had a difficult challenge, trying to plan a home cinema system which served Both a telly and projector. My initial thoughts were reviewed by Daniel at the Southampton store and based on that advice I decided to retain my Onkyo receiver but update the speakers to Wharfdale DX2s with the TV/projector switching looked after by an Optoma WHD200UK. The whole thing works brilliantly.
