Canton DM 50 TV Sound Plinth / Bar : Good product but!

I had to have a white sound plinth to fit in with our absolutely white decor so the option for investigation was seriously limited. Even so, obtaining created a shortlist i then frequented many experts to pay attention to as many as i could, including a handful of which were not available in white. The canton stood out markedly from almost everything else, apart from the non-white sonos sound bar which was £200 extra. It looks good, discreet and attractive, solidly crafted (this is not a flimsy piece of package) and commonly i am very happy with the sound for both music and tv. I used to have an incredible separates sound system filling up two cupboards with speakers (black) on major, but getting converted to digital this was the closing piece in the jigsaw to change the two black speakers. Admittedly the sound is not as good as the outdated system, which cost hundreds of lbs . 30 decades ago, but it is still great and takes up a small portion of the place. The motive for not giving it five stars: the bass has been turned down to the minimum amount (it is graded from -6 to +six) as otherwise the increase-boom on some audio tracks can be to some ears distracting/bothersome. Having carried out that it is flawlessly satisfactory. Whilst i procured a tv wall bracket so that the plinth could sit beneath, i have finished up maintaining the tv on just one cupboard and the plinth one.

Following looking at the take a look at win for the canton in the sunday instances – and viewing that it also bought five stars from what hifi – i urged my mom and dad to invest in one of these. They ended up progressively having difficulties to hear tv sound from their flatscreen, but didn’t want major boxes or just about anything complicated to use. I assumed i’d have to go and install it when it arrived, but the canton is so simple to set up that they’d received it up and jogging just before i got there.Remaining ready to use a solitary remote manage for the two the canton and tv would make points even simpler. It really is manufactured a big variance to their tv pleasure, as well as has authorized them to ditch the ipod speaker they had in the residing room – when i showed them how uncomplicated it is to stream music from their ipad, which they made use of to plug into the dock.

All round outstanding 5 star product or service. . Wow , acquired this to pal up with my lg 32′ which by itself has a fairly great sound high quality and output but the canton has enhanced on this immensely the excellent of sound is fantastic and their is a good deal of output, extremely properly constructed, awesome dimensions and simplistic layout. Outstanding merchandise, just glimpse at all the awards it has gained, go get it you will be delighted with your alternative.

Comments from buyers

“Incredible Sound, Like a real cinema at home!, You get what you pay for, Perfect for parents!, WOW – How they got that sound from such a little box I’ll never know, A rare 5-stars from me.”

Was a bit doubtful about buying a sound plinth to exchange my ageing sony surround sound system but could not be more pleased with the effectiveness of the canton dm 50.

Top rated product or service that is seems wonderful. Last but not least up to date my 15 yr old tv and received myself a flat display hd tv, regrettably the sound was not that great so i was in look for of some surround sound speakers. Came throughout this product or service on what hi-fi which got five stars and exactly what i was looking for and so happy i obtained it as it appears incredible and so straightforward to setup. I also like the point that i can use my tv distant to control the canton alternatively than acquiring various controls. It also has bluetooth so i can use my ipad to perform my audio. Quite extraordinary from these types of a compact merchandise and certainly advise if you do not want the clutter of speakers and wires all around the space but nevertheless provides astounding sound top quality.

The great complement for my tv and tablet. Purchased the canto dm 50 in reaction to the greatest acquire evaluation in the sunday times and am totally delighted with the improved audio general performance from my tv and pill (by means of the bluetooth facility). It arrived properly in advance of the forecast supply from amazon and looks terrific on the shelf under the tv. Environment up was clear-cut, but for individuals not familiar with digital optical audio cables – really don’t fail to remember to eliminate the protective covers on the connectors.It would make a big distinction compared with connecting the headphone output on the tv to auxiliary enter on the dm unit.

  1. This review is from : Canton DM 50 TV Sound Plinth / Bar, 2.1 Virtual Surround System with 200watts in Black

    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.

    Certainly an improvement on tv speakers but only marginal. Certainly not surround sound. A little disappointing for the price.

    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.

    Great depth, with sufficient bass at the default setting. I have had a couple of soundbars before this one, and while both were bassier than the tv speakers, neither had the clarity needed to hear clearly. The sound of the canton is superb: great depth, with sufficient bass at the default setting and speech is crystal clear. The surround sound works very well. The ability to set the on switch and the volume to my samsung tv remote is very useful. One thing that puzzles me is that when you attach the canton to your tv, you are attaching an external speaker, i would have thought. But when i set it as an external speaker in the samsung menu, the canton did not like it all. It was only by leaving it as the internal speaker that it worked properly. Whatever, this is a great soundbase.
    • I bought this to replace a hi-fi sound system as i needed to regain living room space. This unit was picked based on the what hifi awards and i’m not disappointed. From unboxing to working unit took all of 10 minutes and that included reading the manual for the settings. It is worth adjusting the unit to suit your room as out of the box the bass is set too high. They recommend a run-in period for the speakers and yes they did improve on use. The surround effect is excellent especially as i gave the soundbase a challenging setup inside a cabinet. On initial listening i was very aware of the narrower soundstage (well my hifi speakers had been about 8′ apart) but this was quickly forgotten by the pleasure in listening. The bluetooth streaming function works great too. The weighty remote and chic glass top give a very high quality appearance to the whole package.
      • Very high quality sound bar/plinth. Really pleased with this sound bar, after performing a detailed survey of available units from many other manufacturers also. Very high quality sound and the display only indicates for a few seconds while adjustment changes are being made. As a result, the unit also looks very attractive when in use. Nice size compromise also, being significantly smaller than the really large units that are available, but also much more robust and bigger than typical smaller portable units.
  6. Very pleased, vast improvement over tv sound. Very pleased , vast improvement over tv sound. Placed on shelf under tv so had adjust sync a little but no problem ,.
    • Anton sound bar by canton delivered by gadget-south-side. I have had this a few weeks now. It is a very accomplished system. The remote control is robust and includes blueooth for ipod/phone music playing whic is of good quality. I chose this system based on what hifi reviews d because it came 5th in their top 10. The other systems were considerably more expensive and larger. This suited me as it was a system that is all in one place and gives good overall sound effect for movies etc. The unit i have is a second delivery from canton.
      • 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.

    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.
