Canton DM55 2, Overall very pleased.

This is just what i needed – the seem is superior despite the fact that not at any time so ‘surround sound’. It is extremely straightforward to established up and the sound is much more than sufficient for a medium sized home. The sound is apparent, with dialogue a lot much better than the regular flat screen tv speakers and when it comes to deep seem it is tight and nicely managed. All in all i really feel this was a definitely fantastic invest in and i am perfectly delighted with it.

I’ve waited a while in advance of examining this solution specified some of the negative reviews. So far, i have professional none of the issues other reviewers have documented. I have the canton set up in my bed room with a samsung t24h390s good 24′ led tv and the profile of the canton suits the television flawlessly. The seem is great for a compact home. Terrific clarity and a pleasing neutral sound which can be adjusted to match your flavor. Bluetooth connectivity is excellent too and quick to set-up. As others have observed, the distant is impressive and built like a brick. For all those that complain about sound fall-out, i ponder if it really is connected to their to their television set provider’s box?. I’ve experienced seem drop-out, and isolated it to my virgin media v6 box.

A terrific audio system allow down slightly by a essential remote manage.

Comments from buyers

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

Great piece of kit operates nicely with my 42 inch panasonic television. Larger tv’s would be not likely to suit on best of it as it is very compact.

Terrific seems and seems organic. Does not take up a good deal of place and appears fantastic below my tvs. I have not experienced any difficulties with this charming solution.

Audio replica is excellent.

Delighted to add my name to its quite a few five star critiques.

Owning carried out investigate on the web this experienced rave reviews and really rightly so.

Seem is extraordinary but you do have to crank up the quantity especially on distinct inputs with varying concentrations. Probably ought to have absent for the even bigger edition presented the dimension of our residing area.

No concerns as but with synchronisation. Minor concern finding it to perform my samsung tv if not terrific item – well worth the dosh.

Apparent and convincing audio good quality. Films and the proms – marvellous.

I really don’t create evaluations usually but for canton dm55 i have to. I was taking into consideration to purchase bose. Acquiring in contrast sound top quality with bose, canton offer you a lot more clarity. It really is not just obtaining base, but also sharpness.

I attached this to a sony bravia kdl 32w654a which was connected to a virgin media tivo box. Tivo distant regulate is equipped to handle the volume. Took about fifteen minutes to set up. Initial effect is that it has not manufactured considerably variance. But then sat down to enjoy rush and the difference is awesome. The appears that you hear in the cinema are now coming by and include depth offering you an emotional response. Excellent addition to tele expertise and significantly greater than investing in 4k which has small information.

Right after looking through other reviews i was anticipating something extraordinary – the sound is superior but i wouldn’t simply call it exceptional. Probably i am limited by dwelling in a terraced home exactly where i can not flip the quantity up too superior. Obtaining stated all that as i say the seem is wealthy and apparent and i uncover i never will need subtitles as often as utilised to and there are fairly a few wonderful features like staying in a position to have it switching off and on instantly when the tv set is switched on and off.

Quite first rate seem, appears very intelligent, additional minimalist and substantially a lot less obtrusive than a seem bar. There are on the other hand a few of baffling oddities. For starters the distant only is effective if you maintain it about 25 to 30 cms. In front of the unit (which form of defeats the whole stage of a distant) and each now and all over again it just randomly switches by itself off. I’ve changed the remote battery twice but there is no improvement, a promised substitute remote in no way materialised. Neither of these issues are vastly problematic however, and i’m generally rather delighted with my alternative.

I was anticipating some thing astounding after viewing the assessments of this product – in particular on the which web page wherever it arrived prime of all those that have been examined by them. The atmosphere created by incidental music in films is pretty nicely conveyed and on downloaded youtube video clips you are quite substantially conscious that it is the resource material that is restricting rather than the audio base. Deep clean up bass from ancient devices like the tiorba is a revelation and truly entire appears like a piano concerto are taken care of quickly. Voices are extra of a trouble with the additional fullness of the frequency assortment at times negating the improvement in the mid-range voice frequencies – but right here i ought to admit that i am in excess of 70 and my ears may perhaps be the issues in this article. The controls are sensibly constrained e’g’ the treble and bass strengthen and slash usually are not extreme adequate to produce unpleasant sound even at the edges of their ranges nor does the ‘surround’ selection produce an unnatural knowledge. Connection is effortless and a bluetooth website link to my telephone was established up in seconds. In spite of obtaining bought this product in order to boost tv set speech and locating this the weakest component of the effectiveness i am delighted with this merchandise. Right after examining, and acting upon, the remark created by cenc on this critique i’ve upgraded my rating to 5 star.

I acquired this due to the fact it was hugely advised by which. It’s ok and has improved my tv’s audio rather. Nonetheless it has not been as very good as i hoped. For some purpose the qualifications songs appears to be too loud and the speech far too quiet. I have attempted fiddling all-around with the settings, but to no avail.

Bought this after briefly looking on line for a good sounding tv companion with the talent to blend as our main residing place sound system. Or the mrs are not able to stand hundreds of wires and seperate sub’s (like mine) then this would make perfect senseit’s straightforward to established-up, a person plug into the wall and a single into the back again of the tv set. Easyvisiting friends at yours can utilise the easy-peasy bluetooth connection and be listening to high-quality sound in seconds. Exploration and analysis and study if you have to. . The dm55 has won a lot of awards and plaudits.

Apart from changing your television set to recognise the seem output, very easy to install and work. Great loaded seem – mumbling a matter of the past.

Sensible, tidy and the seem top quality fantastic.

Alright, it is as fantastic a product as all people else has explained it is, my only gripe is that the system only has bass and treble choices for equalising the audio. I like to use it to observe motion pictures predominantly. When i change from my tv set which has a 7 band graphic eq that i can participate in with, the seem from the seem foundation sounds very nasal (y). It is not the end of the entire world as soon after a number of minutes i never genuinely discover the distinction, but it is there. I are unable to actually see why a more extensive graphic eq could not have been put in. When accomplishing investigation into your acquire glimpse out for methods that have bass, middle & treble or a graphic eq. I am really satisfied with the product or service, seems to be excellent, matches below the television set, fantastic(ish) rate, sounds superior.

So far so fantastic,fantastic audio indeed cant see what other reviewers were being going on about,and at very last a remote that feels like a distant and not a piece of card. I have had the further promise just incase but i cant see me needing it if it works like this all the time.

Entirely happy about this product and many thanks to the engineers who designed this sort of an awesome soundbase. It gives wonderful audio excellent for tv shows with crisp and clear seem and for films, the extra subwoofers with the surround characteristic are including an fantastic house theater encounter with out the problem of incorporating lots of speakers.

Quite straightforward to set up and integrate with the television. The seems is precisely what i expected soon after looking at plenty of other reviews, not disappointed.

    As a 7-year zvox 555 listener, i was totally blown away by the canton dm55. The vast improvement in sound immersion is truly awesome. And its appearance is truly rich and luxurious. You wouldn’t be disappointed, and the price is incredibly low for this powerhouse of a sound base.

    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’m on my 3rd canton dm55 now because the first two developed faults. Luckily amazon’s customer service is top notch and they have replaced both faulty units no questions asked.

    1. 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.

    1. 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.

    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.

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

    1. 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.
