One of the most affordable 5.1 speaker systems that doesn’t revert to using absolutely tiny satellite speakers, the Wharfedale DX-1SE is worth a look if you’re on a budget. It comes in high gloss black and white, two looks to suit different lounges.
If it’s not clear from the pics, the Wharfedale DX-1SE
’s speakers are still fairly petite, at just 19cm tall per satellite. They have 75mm main drivers and a tweeter a piece.
Given their size, the subwoofer does a great job of picking up the slack, making a system that’s a true room-filler with real power. We like the sound, and love the look and price. The one sore point is that the bass could be more taut.
