5.1 systems give a great cinematic boost to the audio of your flatscreen TV, but they’re often big enough to dwarf the slimline-chic of modern paper-thin TVs. Wharfedale’s DX-1 HCP 5.1 system promises big sound from a small, stylish package.
Size wise, you’re getting four 19cm tall satellites, a 29cm long centre channel and a 335 x 285 x 320mm subwoofer.
Each satellite has a 19mm silk dome tweeter and 75mm mid and bass driver with a polypropylene cone, while the centre offers two 75mm woven PP cones.
The subwoofer houses a 200mm long-throw bass cone alongside a new-generation, 150W Class D amplifier.
“In the UK and around the world, there is high demand for compact 5.1 speaker systems that combine crisp, modern aesthetics with high-quality sound,” said Peter Comeau, director of acoustic design for Wharfedale parent company IAG.
“In the DX-1 HCP we have incorporated elements from Wharfedale’s award-winning Diamond 10 Series to deliver a high-value package that is not only a delight in the home, but also extremely enjoyable to listen to. Modern movie soundtracks are exceptionally demanding, but we’ve made sure that this package is tailor-made for the job.”
Available in black or white, the Wharfedale DX-1 HCP is yours for £399.99 from the end of the month.
