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:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Available in 3 colours (Black, White & Silver with Glass Top)
  • Includes APTX Bluetooth, i.e. You can play music from your phone and tablets in high quality
  • Lets you use your TV remote to control volume
  • Built in Subwoofer
  • 2.1 Surround Sound

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.

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.

This review is from : Canton DM 50 TV Sound Plinth/Bar, 2.1 200 W Virtual Surround Sound with Glass Top – Black

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.
