Excerpt: Most of the small speaker packages we’ve reviewed lately have used their compact dimensions to make a bit of a design statement. Such frivolousness is not for the Wharfedale DX-1 HCP. Its five speakers look like nothing more than miniaturised versions of the company’s Diamond 10.1 standmounters, and they’re accompanied by an equally neat subwoofer.
Pros: Looks and feels pricier than it is, composed, detailed presentation
Cons: Slightly less exciting at the extremes of the frequency range
