The DX-1SE replaces the DX-1 HCP. The new package sports a number of improvements, including fine-tuned drivers, increased efficiency and redesigned cabinets with larger internal volumes. The result is improved bass response, more detail and “greater sonic scale”.4224_DX-1SE_5.1_speaker_system_(black)

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

The DX-1 Centre incorporates the same silk dome tweeter flanked by two 75mm mid/bass drivers. Its design includes a sophisticated aperiodic loading system consisting of a vent that is filled with resistive porous foam to control airflow.

The matching WH-D8 active subwoofer combines a 200mm long-throw bass cone with a 120W amplifier in extremely compact unit –328x268x322mm (HxWxD). It also sports an ‘auto-power’ facility, automatically switching out of standby when a signal is sensed and back again when it stops.

Available in high-gloss black or high-gloss white, the DX-1SE 5.1 speaker package delivers smart, space- saving contemporary style and which Wharfedale say is fast, punchy and detailed, with a sense of scale that belies the diminutive size of the speakers.4225_DX-1SE_Satellite_(black_pair)

“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,” says Peter Comeau, Director of Acoustic Design for Wharfedale’s parent company IAG. “In the DX-1SE we have incorporated elements from Wharfedale’s award-winning Diamond speakers 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.”

The Wharfedale DX-1SE 5.1 home cinema speaker package is available from December at an RRP of £399.95. An optional satellite expansion pack is also coming soon, ideal for those seeking to expand the 5.1 package to a 7.1 configuration.
