Great product, great service. I bought this a) to improve the sound quality from the tv, & b) to listen to spotify via bluetooth. The sound quality in both cases is remarkable given the ‘box’ is compact & unobtrusive, (sits very well under a 32′ telly), and the surround sound performance from dvds is pretty impressive. Stacks of volume, easy to setup & use, what’s not to like. Incidentally, the first one i received was faulty ( sound disappeared, had to switch off & on to restore) – richer sounds were superb, replaced it promptly, excellent communication & they use a great delivery company, the one that emails you with a 1-hour delivery slot.
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.
The canton dm50 is the ideal add on for any slim tv. It offers incredible sound quality in a compact non obtrusive form. It has various inputs and supports bluetooth aptx, it also has a sub out (but i dont think you will need to use it)i had the bose solo but took it back when i read about this is what hifi, i do not regret it at all. Here are the specifications for the Canton DM 50 TV Sound Plinth/Bar:

I looked for something with really good, involving sound that didn’t fill the room with speakers or just amplified explosions and i found it. A really good product which is more subtle, rather than in your face, but still impressive. I have it sitting on a low cabinet with the tv mounted on top of it. I bought it because the sound from mewly acquired sony kdl 42w805 is not very good. Great to look at, but to listen. Run it in and take some trouble getting the right setting. You can choose from 3 positioning modes to optimise sound – in a cabinet,, on a cabinet with tv on it or on a cabinet with the tv wall mounted. I also prefer the stereo option to the surround option.
Great service and even better sound. Great service and even better sound. I can switch off my sub titles now. Also, i am going to re watch the wire now i can hear everything.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Incredible Sound
- great depth, with sufficient bass at the default setting
- VERY HIGH QUALITY SOUND BAR/PLINTH
Quick easy set up using the optical lead enclosed. Be sure to remove the plastic caps at either end of the lead. Dying to see what this baby was capable off in regard to cinema surround sound in my lounge measuring 4m x 5m and placed in the centre. I placed my favourite action film and i was blown away with clarity watching the hurt locker, and explosions actually sounded real, full of bass and realism. Next i went into bluetooth mode and quickly paired with my iphone 5s to listen to some music. Again i was not disappointed listening to nothing else matters – metallica,one thing i will say is you need to have the volume set quite high like 67 or 70 to get a good return hence the 4 stars.
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.
