Wharfedale DX-1 HTiB Preview

 

HTiB buyers just want something that looks good, disappears, and has a good name. The 5.1 Wharfedale DX-1 satellite/subwoofer system certainly fits the bill for well under $1k.

For a Home Theater in a Box, $800 for the Wharfedale DX-1 is somewhere near the upper-mid of the price range. This is targeted for the consumer that isn't afraid to pay a bit of money for decent speakers but is afraid of introducing large speakers into...

Wharfedale DX-1 HCP

 

Get stylish design and superb sound from Wharfedale's compact 5.1 package.

Punchy, refined sound ; Stylish design ; Build quality belies its price tag

Strains a little when pushed loud ; Sub not as authoritative as some rival compact subs

Wharfedale DX-1HCP review

 

A combination of style and performance makes the Wharfedale DX-1 HCP a great buy

Looks and feels pricier than it is ; composed, detailed presentation

Slightly less exciting at the extremes of the frequency range

A neat blend of trad design and stylishly compact dimensions, for the money these stylish speakers get an awful lot right
