New 5.1 home cinema package from world-renowned speaker specialist is stylish, compact and delivers engrossing surround sound, yet costs just £450!!

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. 

Ideal for wall-mounting or simply placing on an AV stand or shelf, the DX-2 Satellite measures just 19x12x12cm (HxWxD). It incorporates a 19mm silk dome tweeter and 75mm mid/bass driver with a woven polypropylene cone – this material is used for its ideal combination of lightness, strength and low coloration. 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-2 Centre incorporates the same silk dome tweeter flanked by two 75mm mid/bass drivers in a 12x31x12cm (HxWxD) cabinet. Its design includes a sophisticated aperiodic bass loading system consisting of a vent that is filled with resistive porous foam to reduce low-frequency distortion. This controls bass response and contributes to a rich and detailed centre channel performance, a critical part of the surround sound experience. 

The matching WH-D8 active subwoofer combines a 200mm long-throw bass cone with a 70W (150W peak) amplifier to deliver bass that’s fast, deep and well-defined from an extremely compact unit – just 29.8x26.8x30cm (HxWxD). The quality of the subwoofer’s design ensures it integrates superbly with the other speakers in the package, without any hint of bass bloating or overhang. It also sports an ‘auto- power’ facility, switching out of standby when a signal is sensed and back again when it stops. 
Available in black initially, with an alternative white finish coming soon, the DX-2 5.1 speaker package delivers smart, space-saving contemporary style and exhilarating sound for both movies and music – fast, punchy and detailed, with a sense of scale that belies the diminutive size of the speakers. It’s the perfect way to enjoy authentic and engaging surround sound at a price more akin to a soundbar than a high-quality 5.1 speaker package.
