As usual a very nice canton quality and compact item, sound experience ok but does not live up to expectation for the price. More importatntly as noted by some previous users, voice quality is awful.

Top product that’s sounds great. Finally updated my 15 yr old tv and got myself a flat screen hd tv, unfortunately the sound was not that great so i was in search of some surround sound speakers. Came across this product on what hi-fi which got 5 stars and exactly what i was looking for and so glad i got it as it sounds incredible and so easy to setup. I also like the fact that i can use my tv remote to control the canton rather than having different controls. It also has bluetooth so i can use my ipad to play my music. Very impressive from such a compact product and definitely recommend if you do not want the clutter of speakers and wires around the room but still delivers amazing sound quality.

I put in a lot of time and effort researching sound bars, ended up with a short list of five, which in turn again, i researched, until this one ,was the only one left standing, after reading all the reviews on this particular subject, and boy it was worth all the hassle, so chuffed with this product, fantastic.

Exactly what i needed for the lounge, discreet, easy to set up, connectivity for blue tooth & the sound is superb delivering a cinema experience without hassle and ugly wires across the floor. All in all this is the sound equipment of choice for those looking for a high end alternative to sonos or bose as i believe neither use bluetooth ( without adapters ).

I bought it after reading a review in ‘what hifi’ and it is way better than my tv audio. However, i am a bit disappointed with its sound. The mid tones, especially vocals, are a bit underwhelming unless i jack the sound and then the bass is overwhelming. However, quite often its the compressed nature of the sound track that’s at fault, not the canton.

Canton DM 50 TV Sound Plinth / Bar, 2.1 Virtual Surround System with 200watts in Silver : All round excellent 5 star product. . Wow , purchased this to pal up with my lg 32″ which itself has a pretty good sound quality and output but the canton has improved on this tremendously the quality of sound is superb and their is plenty of output, very well built, nice size and simplistic design. Excellent product, just look at all the awards it has won, go buy it you will be pleased with your choice.

Outstanding speakers and supplier. After about 20 months mine stopped working. I sent it back and the supplier sent me an upgraded model. I am extremely pleased with the seller creative audio and the canton sound base.

Fantastic unit – great sound and good looks. Absolutely love this sleek bit of kit. The sound is amazing and i’m really pleased i bought it. Allowed me to get rid of all my surround speakers (including the sub as the bass from this soundbase is superb as well)thoroughly recommend. (tip: don’t mislay the remote as there are no controls on this unit)better looking than the usual boring soundbars.

The bass is not rich and powerful but that is to be expected for a small box. Canton make it easy to add a subwoofer which really helps the sound shine out. Remote seems a bit unresponsive but this could be the battery. I can recommend this box and the retailer i used was extremely helpful.

A great sound bar system although i must agree with a review stating that with the analogue inputs there is an improvement in the quality of the sound at least in my experience. Optical connection offers very good sound so don’t hesitate to use optical if your tv supports it also i want to point out that the service was excellent as well the sound bar even arrived earlier then expected and everything was very neatly organized amazon even supplied me with a uk plug too.

I chose this soundbase for a couple of reasons; it’s to fit into an alcove beneath a new 40″ tv (ie: not enough width/space for a long soundbar), it doesn’t require a separate sub (the wires for a remote sub-bass things look cluttered), and the reviews of its audio quality were excellent. Out of the box, i managed to get the system installed within minutes. Connected to the tv, then programmed the canton dm50 with the tv’s remote so we only need the one remote so my wife doesn’t complain too much. Results: the soundbase fits perfectly under the tv-stand – literally looks like they were made for each other(and worth remembering to check measurements beforehand ). It’s completely clean-looking – discreet and without trailing wires. And the sound is phenomenal. Crisp at the top end, punchy in the bass. I mean it not only makes my ps4 games sound like they’re supposed to (the guns in destiny really sound like they have oomph, and battlefront tie fighters have a proper throaty screech), it makes everyday stuff sound immense. Who knew the theme for pointless had that much sonic woof ?options to change the bass and treble to suit your own taste, and to select from three preset eqs to reflect your set-up – whether the soundbase is sitting in a shelving unit, or beneath a tv, etc) you can also choose from two audio-ranges (wide and narrow).

It is much bigger than you expect – you need a shelf at least 35cm wide beneath your tv for it to sit on. The sound is good but i can not say that i am experiencing a ‘cinema like’ experience – surround mode appears to give a hint of echo. The best thing is how it handles music viabluetooth from my pc.

Great sound, easy to set up but damaged front panel where the plug indented the foil speaker cover.

To be fair, i never listened to the bose, cambridge audio or denon systems so can’t really compare, so you may be able to get the same quality sound for less. Saying that, i am not at all disappointed with this speaker. The sound is very clear and dialogue is not affected by the soundscape that is created by the 200 watts. I will say that the surround sound mode is a bit pointless with the stereo option sounding equally as good. If you want true surround sound, ignore your wife and buy loads of speakers, if not the get a sound bar/base.
