Canton DM55 2 : Small, discrete and loud

Totally satisfied about this product and thanks to the engineers who designed such an amazing soundbase. It provides wonderful sound quality for tv shows with crisp and clear sound and for movies, the added subwoofers with the surround feature are adding an excellent home theater experience without the hassle of adding many speakers.

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.

A beautiful looking device, sleek and discrete and packs quite a punch with clear and well defined sound. It’s so much easier than fiddling around with a huge av receiver and the innumerable wires and extra speakers. One mark deducted for lack of a decent display on the front panel, and also the remote is not particularly sensitive. Here are the specifications for the Canton DM55 2:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • This 6-driver design transforms TV and movie sound, plus offers wireless music playback.
  • Sleek, glass-topped soundbase sits discreetly under your flatscreen TV
  • Ideal for larger rooms and flatscreens
  • 6 drivers: 2 tweeters, 2 midrange, 2 subwoofers
  • 2.1 channel amplification with 200 Watts system power

Excellent product, highly recommended. We have bought this soundbase to complete our 40′ samsung lcd tv and we are absolutely pleased with the purchase. It provides exactly the cinema-like experience we were looking for when watching movies.

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

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good powerful sound!!
  • Great sounds to enjoy

Fantastic sound, although speaker broke after 13 months. 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.

Very easy to install and operate. Apart from adjusting your tv to recognise the sound output, very easy to install and operate. Good rich sound – mumbling a thing of the past.

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.

Almost perfect but still wonderful alternative to separate ‘subs’ and rear speakers. 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.

Great sounds and sounds natural. Does not take up a lot of space and looks good below my tvs. I have not had any problems with this lovely product.
