Fully happy about this merchandise and thanks to the engineers who created these an remarkable soundbase. It offers amazing seem quality for television shows with crisp and apparent sound and for flicks, the extra subwoofers with the surround function are introducing an great residence theater expertise with out the stress of including several speakers.

So significantly so excellent,fantastic audio without a doubt cant see what other reviewers ended up heading on about,and at very last a distant that feels like a distant and not a piece of card. I have experienced the additional assure just incase but i cant see me needing it if it is effective like this all the time.

I’ve waited a while before examining this product offered some of the damaging reviews. So much, i’ve knowledgeable none of the troubles other reviewers have documented. I have the canton set up in my bedroom with a samsung t24h390s good 24′ led tv set and the profile of the canton suits the television set flawlessly. The sound is excellent for a compact area. Great clarity and a satisfying neutral audio which can be adjusted to go well with your style. Bluetooth connectivity is wonderful way too and simple to established-up. As other individuals have mentioned, the remote is remarkable and developed like a brick. For those people that complain about sound fall-out, i ponder if it really is joined to their to their television provider’s box?. I’ve experienced sound fall-out, and isolated it to my virgin media v6 box.Here are the specifications for the Canton DM55 2:

Replaced a very good but cumbersome surround seem established and i haven’t appeared back. The from the bluetooth to observing flicks it wonderful. Excellent good quality and a lot of adjustment level suggests this is a great addition to my television setup. Good quality system that appears the part, is a little bit larger than i envisioned but was not a difficulty at all. I have also connected my existing sub-woofer to it and now i roars if i want it to. Great for all the things from flicks, activity and daily tv. Also i have utilized it to play audio from my cell phone and has been very good for the odd young ones social gathering.

Wise, tidy and the sound excellent great.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • ALMOST Perfect but still WONDERFUL alternative to separate ‘Subs’ and rear speakers!
  • Sounds much better . . .
  • Great build quality and sound

Extremely good audio, looks really sensible, more minimalist and a great deal less obtrusive than a audio bar. There are having said that a few of baffling oddities. First of all the remote only works if you hold it about 25 to thirty cms. In front of the system (which variety of defeats the overall position of a distant) and each now and once again it just randomly switches alone off. I have replaced the remote battery two times but there is no improvement, a promised alternative remote never ever materialised. Neither of these matters are hugely problematic even though, and i’m typically really delighted with my preference.

Quite effortless to setup and combine with the tv set. The appears is particularly what i expected after studying a good deal of other evaluations, not unhappy.

Good sounds and appears normal. Does not get up a good deal of place and seems fantastic below my tvs. I have not had any difficulties with this charming solution.

I was anticipating some thing amazing soon after seeing the assessments of this item – especially on the which web site the place it came top of all these that have been tested by them. The environment developed by incidental tunes in movies is quite nicely conveyed and on downloaded youtube films you are extremely substantially aware that it is the supply substance that is restricting alternatively than the sound base. Deep clear bass from historic instruments like the tiorba is a revelation and definitely total seems like a piano concerto are taken care of simply. Voices are more of a issue with the extra fullness of the frequency selection occasionally negating the improvement in the mid-selection voice frequencies – but right here i have to admit that i am over 70 and my ears may well be the trouble right here. The controls are sensibly confined e’g’ the treble and bass strengthen and minimize are not severe enough to deliver unpleasant sound even at the edges of their ranges nor does the ‘surround’ choice generate an unnatural working experience. Relationship is uncomplicated and a bluetooth connection to my cellphone was established up in seconds. In spite of having purchased this item in purchase to strengthen television set speech and getting this the weakest component of the performance i am delighted with this product. Right after looking at, and performing upon, the comment designed by cenc on this assessment i’ve upgraded my ranking to 5 star.

Delighted to incorporate my title to its lots of five star opinions.

Ok, it is as fantastic a item as all people else has claimed it is, my only gripe is that the system only has bass and treble selections for equalising the audio. I like to use it to look at motion pictures primarily. When i change from my tv which has a 7 band graphic eq that i can play with, the sound from the seem foundation seems very nasal (y). It is not the conclusion of the planet as following a handful of minutes i really don’t truly observe the big difference, but it is there. I are unable to seriously see why a much more extensive graphic eq could not have been place in. When performing research into your acquire look out for systems that have bass, center & treble or a graphic eq. I am quite pleased with the product or service, seems to be excellent, fits underneath the tv set, fantastic(ish) price tag, seems excellent.

Immediately after examining other critiques i was expecting a thing remarkable – the sound is excellent but i wouldn’t call it fantastic. Possibly i am restricted by living in a terraced property where by i are not able to flip the quantity up much too large. Obtaining mentioned all that as i say the audio is loaded and obvious and i obtain i really don’t require subtitles as frequently as made use of to and there are fairly a number of pleasant characteristics like being equipped to have it switching off and on instantly when the television set is switched on and off.

I’m on my 3rd canton dm55 now simply because the 1st two created faults. The good thing is amazon’s customer support is top notch and they have replaced the two defective units no queries asked.

Does what you want and a lot more, whilst i need to say that the right speaker stopped operating just after only 13 months. No difficulty though mainly because amazon agreed to trade at no price tag.

Superior piece of package performs perfectly with my 42 inch panasonic television. Even bigger tv’s would be unlikely to in good shape on top of it as it is incredibly compact.

Not a patch on the lg surround system it changed, so if you check out a large amount of movies – really don’t buy this. Alright for slender display tv’s for enhanced audio. Appears to be like very sleek but i observed the placement of the inputs fiddly and complicated to entry. I waited ages in advance of setting up it and in simple fact, would have returned it soon after i might established it it up and read it due to my disappointment.

Acquired this just after briefly seeking on the internet for a excellent sounding tv set companion with the talent to mix as our key living space seem system. Or the mrs are unable to stand hundreds of wires and seperate sub’s (like mine) then this makes excellent senseit’s basic to set-up, one particular plug into the wall and one particular into the back of the tv set. Easyvisiting mates at yours can utilise the effortless-peasy bluetooth link and be listening to good quality audio in seconds. Investigation and investigation and analysis if you will have to. . The dm55 has gained a lot of awards and plaudits.

Bought it as a current for my husband.

I connected this to a sony bravia kdl 32w654a which was attached to a virgin media tivo box. Tivo remote command is able to handle the volume. Took about 15 mins to set up. 1st impression is that it has not made a lot difference. But then sat down to observe rush and the variance is incredible. The appears that you hear in the cinema are now coming by and include depth giving you an emotional reaction. Wonderful addition to tele experience and significantly better than investing in 4k which has very little information.

A beautiful wanting unit, smooth and discrete and packs really a punch with distinct and well described seem. It is so a lot much easier than fiddling around with a massive av receiver and the innumerable wires and more speakers. One mark deducted for lack of a good display on the front panel, and also the remote is not specially delicate.

I bought this mainly because it was remarkably recommended by which. It really is okay and has improved my tv’s audio considerably. Even so it hasn’t been as excellent as i hoped. For some reason the history new music looks too loud and the speech far too silent. I have tried using fiddling all around with the options, but to no avail.

    Replaced a good but cumbersome surround sound set and i haven’t looked back. The from the bluetooth to watching movies it great. Good quality and plenty of adjustment level means this is a great addition to my tv setup. Quality device that looks the part, is a bit bigger than i expected but wasn’t a problem at all. I have also attached my existing sub-woofer to it and now i roars if i want it to. Good for everything from movies, sport and everyday tv. Also i have used it to play music from my phone and has been good for the odd kids party.

    I’ve waited a while before reviewing this product given some of the negative reviews. So far, i’ve experienced none of the problems other reviewers have documented. I have the canton setup in my bedroom with a samsung t24h390s smart 24″ led tv and the profile of the canton fits the tv perfectly. The sound is fantastic for a small room. Great clarity and a pleasing neutral sound which can be adjusted to suit your taste. Bluetooth connectivity is great too and easy to set-up. As others have noted, the remote is impressive and built like a brick. For those that complain about sound drop-out, i wonder if it’s linked to their to their tv provider’s box?. I’ve experienced sound drop-out, and isolated it to my virgin media v6 box.

    I bought this because it was highly recommended by which. It’s ok and has improved my tv’s audio somewhat. However it hasn’t been as good as i hoped. For some reason the background music seems too loud and the speech too quiet. I have tried fiddling around with the settings, but to no avail.

    I have this set up in my bedroom, and it couldn’t be easier to use. It sounds amazing, with a subtle but deep bass, and every voice sounds super clear.

    Does what you want and more, although i must say that the right speaker stopped working after only 13 months. No problem though because amazon agreed to exchange at no cost.

    Apart from adjusting your tv to recognise the sound output, very easy to install and operate. Good rich sound – mumbling a thing of the past.

    Very decent sound, looks very smart, more minimalist and much less obtrusive than a sound bar. There are however a couple of baffling oddities. Firstly the remote only works if you hold it about 25 to 30 cms. In front of the device (which kind of defeats the entire point of a remote) and every now and again it just randomly switches itself off. I’ve replaced the remote battery twice but there is no improvement, a promised replacement remote never materialised. Neither of these things are hugely problematic though, and i’m generally quite pleased with my choice.

    1. Very happy with this bad boy. The bass is epic from such a discrete box. Nice weight remote and good inputs including bluetooth streaming. At times it feels as though the midrange takes a back seat but this could be the source material.

  18. Needs to be turned right up beyond 65% to be audible for some reason. Other than that highly recommended.

    I did exchange the white for the black but both are of equal build quality – we just felt that the black fitted in better for us. Also, purchased when on offer at £249 (nov 2016)wonderful, quality soundbasereplaced a wireless rear speaker surround sound system (one speaker failed)was apprehensive at first but after following the guidance to allow the canton speakers ‘settle’ over a few days, we’ve been 100% deligfhted with the quality of the sound. It’s possible to ‘tweak’ both the bass and the treble and the choice between stereo and surround makes a very noticeble difference on most films. Volume is way more than enough than we need or will ever use. Quality sound, though should be balanced and have sufficient ‘separation’ between full on bass and full on treble (i”m also sounding as if i’m very knowledgeable. I’m not, but i enjoy quality audio) to my ears, the canton does provide super clarity and ‘separation’ so that the spoken word or singing isn’t battling against ‘mushy’ ( it’s a persoanl technical term) background. It fits perfectly under our 4 legged samsung 40″ tvthe remote controler is re-assuringly ‘weighty’ and cleverly but simply designed. Well, a key reason we selected the canton was bluetooth. Perhaps we’re missing a setting choice but if we have bluetooth enabled on either phone or ipad, the canton seems to prefer that source to the tv (or dvd) source and has occasionally ‘switched’ from tv if we have begun using the devicewith bluetooth switched off on phones and ipad, there is absolutely no problem. We have set the canton to use tv as default source but we may well be missing some nuance setting. If i do find it, i’ll update this review (and will most certainly up the canton to 5 stars)if you find this report helpful, please like.

    Sound is impressive but you do have to crank up the volume especially on different inputs with varying levels. Probably should have gone for the bigger version given the size of our living room.
