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
