Wharfedale DX-1 HCP Home Theater Speaker System

Wharfedale announced the DX-1 HCP (Home Cinema Package) consisting of four satellite speakers for the front and rear, plus a similarly diminutive center speaker and a compact active subwoofer. The speakers take their design cues from their Diamond 10.1 standmount speakers, with their curved cabinets and silver-finished cone surrounds, albeit shrunk to a much smaller size — the satellite speakers are just 19cm high.

Each DX-1 Satellite sports a 19mm silk dome tweeter and 75mm mid/bass driver with woven polypropylene cone. The enclosure is an infinite baffle (closed-box) design and the speakers can be sited in close proximity to a wall without affecting their performance.

The DX-1 Centre combines two 75mm mid/bass drivers either side of a 19mm tweeter. In addition, it incorporates an aperiodic loading system to aid bass response, consisting of a vent that is filled with resistive porous form to control airflow, thus contributing to a rich and detailed centre channel performance — a critical part of the surround sound experience.

The DX-1 Subwoofer combines a 200mm long-throw bass cone with a new-generation, 150W Class D amplifier, to deliver bass that's fast, deep and well-defined from an extremely compact unit — just 33.5×28.5x32cm (HxWxD). The quality of the subwoofer's design ensures it integrates superbly with the other speakers in the package, without any hint of bass bloating or overhang.

Available in high-gloss black or high-gloss white, the DX-1 HCP delivers smart, space-saving contemporary style and exhilarating sound for both movies and music — fast, punchy and detailed, with a sense of scale that belies the diminutive size of the speakers.

Price and Availability
The Wharfedale DX-1 HCP is available from September 2011 for £399.95.
