If you're looking for a 5.1 system to sit in your living room that is kinda purty to look at, and won't take up too much space then Wharefdale may have just the system for you by way of the DX-1 HCP.

The four satellite speakers are just 19cm high, but still pack a 19mm silk dome tweeter and 75mm mid/bass driver with a woven polypropylene cone.

The centre speaker also packs that silk dome, with two 75mm woven PP cones, all jam packed into a length of just 29cm.

The subwoofer measures in at 335x285x320mm, including the grille and feet, and boasts a 200mm long-throw bass cone with a new-generation, 150W Class D amplifier.

"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,” said Peter Comeau, director of acoustic design for
Wharfedales parent company IAG.

“In the DX-1 HCP we have incorporated elements from Wharfedales award-winning Diamond 10 Series 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."

Out this month in black or white, the Wharfedale DX-1 HCP comes in at just shy of £400.
