Excellent improvement on tv set sound. Provides motion films to existence.

To start with i have to say i procured mine from sevenoaks sound & vision who were being great to offer with and it only price tag £269the in general sound from the dm75 is neutral and undoubtedly much better than the telly. My primary rationale for selecting this one was for the ‘hotel mode’ which i thought would stability out the different amounts involving channels, but it in fact only will allow a highest quantity to be set which is not much use truly. In general if this characteristic is not on your record then i would propose it.

Good sound, permit down by bad regulate alternatives. . I purchased a canton dm75 for the reason that of the rave assessments in the dwelling theatre push and frequently optimistic comments from users below. The sound quality is superb for the money and can’t genuinely be faulted. Numerous inputs like coaxial digital meant that i can connect my bluray participant and get five. It was this that inspired my to get the canton fairly than a sonos playbar which only has an optical enter from the tv set. Having said that i (like many folks i believe) have a range of other peripherals these kinds of as satellite box, apple tv set, sonos preamp and so on and here is the canton’s seriously significant weak point, you can only modify the enter selector (tv, dvd, aux, bt etc) relative to its last situation. It’s not probable through the remote to pressure the input to a specific one. This would make it difficult to reliably management with a single multifunction remote like a harmony. I contacted canton assistance in germany which verified there are no discrete ir codes that will drive the unit to a particular input. Turning it off won’t support due to the fact the device remembers the past input. I genuinely hope that this is a computer software situation that might be rectified by a firmware update in the potential but i am not banking on it as canton support appeared disinterested in the evident challenge. I have in no way experienced a piece of audio or television set gear where you cannot opt for an input specifically. If i had identified of this weak spot i would not have purchased it.

Fantastic sound stage, really specific sound, i own the dm a hundred just a minor for a longer time. A great deal superior than currys garbage.

Outstanding for measurement and money. . I very first procured the sony xt3 soundbase which was returned due to some beauty hurt which turned out to be a blessing in disguise as i was not extremely impressed with the sound in spite of all the assessments posted on amazon. The canton by comparison is a improved sounding speaker marginally for tv with a deeper foundation,having said that the place in which it excels in comparison is with tunes, i intend someday to hooked up with an exterior subwoofer. For the actual bodily size of the speakers the sound even though not room filling is most defiantly outstanding for the revenue when you consider what you can shell out on household hifi. As for not currently being able to decode dts i never feel this is a genuine deal breaker once again down to the physical size of the device. Performs very well and simple to established up and use but never be expecting surround sound regardless of what canton will notify you in their marketing and advertising hoopla. I’ve now paired the speaker with an exterior warfdale subwoofer speaker for £150 and this really has taken the sound to a further degree for both new music and fiilms. To be good the foundation from the canton is enough but i imagine if you want the best out of the unit this is most defiantly the way ahead although i doubt your neighbours would assume this :).

  • Brilliant sound stage

Seems absolutely superb i would extremely propose this solution. Sounds completely fantastici would highly recommend this solution, appears to be like attractive easy to use and established up.

Right after upgrading to a yamaha yas-a hundred and one sound bar a few of several years back at around £200 it was time for an additional improve. Acquired on the power of a what-hifi sound base and sound bar solution of the calendar year award i hunted the web higher and reduced and discovered two web pages selling the canton dm 75 for £349 which is a £100 saving on most web-sites which includes amazon. I have to say i am delighted with the sound foundation. Normally sound bases are base weighty which is fantastic for films but no superior for ordinary working day to day tv set applications wherever speech sounds artificially deep voiced. Really don’t get me mistaken, when you require foundation it is there in abundance and without having the want for a independent subwoofer. New music also appears first price and with its bluetooth connectivity taking part in songs from my ipad is a revelation. The dm 75 has a significant footprint so make certain it suits possibly inside of your open up cabinet or on prime of your cabinet. Also really worth mentioning is that this sound base can be established up to use your current television set or sky distant command. If you can not uncover your distant control there are no buttons on the real sound foundation so it will be ineffective. Also there are intended to be 3 default sound configurations dependent the place the unit is positioned. To be genuine they all sound the very same to me and i have a fantastic ear for this type of matter. There is a stereo and encompass sound simulation button that does make a difference though.

Firstly i have to say i purchased mine from sevenoaks sound & vision who were fantastic to deal with and it only cost £269the overall sound from the dm75 is neutral and certainly better than the telly. My main reason for choosing this one was for the “hotel mode” which i thought would balance out the varying levels between channels, but it actually only allows a maximum volume to be set which is not much use really. Overall if this feature is not on your list then i would recommend it.

After upgrading to a yamaha yas-101 sound bar a couple of years ago at around £200 it was time for another upgrade. Bought on the strength of a what-hifi sound base and sound bar product of the year award i hunted the internet high and low and found two sites selling the canton dm 75 for £349 which is a £100 saving on most websites including amazon. I have to say i am delighted with the sound base. Often sound bases are base heavy which is fine for movies but no good for normal day to day tv programs where speech sounds artificially deep voiced. Don’t get me wrong, when you need base it is there in abundance and without the need for a separate subwoofer. Music also sounds first rate and with its bluetooth connectivity playing music from my ipad is a revelation. The dm 75 has a big footprint so make sure it fits either inside your open cabinet or on top of your cabinet. Also worth mentioning is that this sound base can be set up to use your existing tv or sky remote control. If you can’t find your remote control there are no buttons on the actual sound base so it will be useless. Also there are meant to be three default sound settings depending where the unit is located. To be honest they all sound the same to me and i have a good ear for this sort of thing. There is a stereo and surround sound simulation button that does make a difference though.

This is a wonderful piece of kit that was my one indulgence for reaching a certain age. We have a panasonic plasma tv that’s a few years old now. It’s much heavy and deeper than the latest cigarette-paper-thickness tv’s that are available, so it has room for some meatier speakers. I wondered whether i would notice much difference when i switched to this box. I needn’t have worried – the difference is astonishing. I had taken to watching movies with the subtitles on so that i could work out what the actors were mumbling. With this box, dialogue is crisp and clear, and the bass has to be experienced. We watched american sniper the other day. It starts with a tank moving through a war zone.

Good sound, let down by poor control options. . I bought a canton dm75 because of the rave reviews in the home theatre press and generally positive feedback from users here. The sound quality is excellent for the money and can’t really be faulted. Multiple inputs like coaxial digital meant that i can attach my bluray player and get 5. It was this that encouraged my to buy the canton rather than a sonos playbar which only has an optical input from the tv. However i (like many people i assume) have a number of other peripherals such as satellite box, apple tv, sonos preamp etc and here is the canton’s really big weakness, you can only change the input selector (tv, dvd, aux, bt etc) relative to its last position. It’s not possible via the remote to force the input to a particular one. This makes it impossible to reliably control with a single multifunction remote like a harmony. I contacted canton support in germany which confirmed there are no discrete ir codes that will force the unit to a particular input. Turning it off doesn’t help because the unit remembers the last input. I really hope that this is a software issue that might be rectified by a firmware update in the future but i’m not banking on it as canton support seemed disinterested in the glaring problem. I’ve never had a piece of audio or tv equipment where you can’t choose an input directly. If i had known of this weakness i would not have bought it.

No regrets, good purchase. . It was very easy to setup and sounds and looks great, i especially like being able to stream my music from my ipad via bluetooth. I personally like the fact that it doesn’t use hdmi, this means you can turn it on only if you want to.

The product was really easy to install and was up an running within a few minutes with an amazing sound. Flicking between the tv speakers and this canton illustrated an unbelievable contrast. The bass settings also proved to improve the sound considerably. From playing with the settings i also discovered i was able to sync my tv remote to operate this speaker. All in all an excellent system with a very simple setup and intuitive remote control. Bluetooth function proved very useful for music and when watching tv on my ipad.
