For those seeking a more discreet, stylish and affordable solution for genuine surround sound, the New DX-2 5.1 speaker system from Wharfedale is ideal.
Consisting of four satellite speakers for the front and rear, plus a compact centre speaker and an active subwoofer, the DX-2 replaces the similarly diminutive DX-1 series of speaker packages. These were universally praised for their excellent ‘sound-per-pound’performance, earning five-star reviews in What Hi-Fi? and Home Cinema Choice magazines, scoring 9/10 on the Trusted Reviews website, and winning ‘Best Compact Loudspeaker System’ in last year’s AVTech Media Awards.
The DX-2 incorporates all the key ingredients that made the DX-1 HCP and DX-1SE packages so successful, re-engineered with an improved cabinet design and a smart, contemporary new look. The drive units have been fine-tuned and the active subwoofer upgraded with a more powerful and sophisticated integral amplifier, resulting in greater scale, punch and refinement.
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.
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.
