"A sterling soundbase that builds on the Minx TV's success with a few design and feature upgrades."'What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision' - Awards 2014.

A massive upgrade for your TV's sound

Using twin BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drive units, the Cambridge TV2 gives pinpoint accuracy and is bursting with detail, even at high volume. BMR technology combines the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers, so means that the TV2 is truly dynamic and won't turn harsh when the music or film action gets intense. For added bass, a downwards-firing subwoofer negates the need for a separate subwoofer, with the overall result a clean, punchy sound from TV, movies and music - just as you'd expect from Cambridge Audio, masters of sound.

Bluetooth music streaming
In addition to making your TV sound great, the TV2 also offers effortless Bluetooth music streaming. Simply pair your device and stream music from your smartphone, tablet or Bluetooth-equipped laptop or desktop. Stream your music library or use a music streaming service such as Spotify, Pandora or the iPlayer Radio, and as the Cambridge TV2 supports aptX Bluetooth, it's delivered in near CD quality.

Selectable sound modes
Whatever you listen to, the Cambridge TV2 offers an optimum mode. 'Film' is designed to get the best from movies and offers a powerful and dynamic sound. 'Music' gives enhanced stereo performance, perfect for music via Bluetooth or watching music videos. 'TV' offers a well-balanced sound that's ideal for most TV programmes - and certainly likely to be a great improvement upon your standard TV speakers. Finally, 'Voice' mode improves clarity and is ideal for those hard of hearing or sitting further back from the speaker.

Simple to use
Using the TV2 is easy. Simply connect your TV by optical digital, 3.5mm or RCA phono sockets and you're ready to go. These will also accept a second source, such as CD or DVD player. The simple remote control offers all the basics, but the TV2 should also support your existing TV remote. The sensor in the TV2 is designed to accept signals and learn volume commands from most TV or SKY remotes and also commands quick pairing with your Bluetooth device, eight of which can be matched to the sound base.

Give your music and TV the lease of life they deserve, with the Cambridge TV2

CAMBRIDGE AUDIO TV2 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 200.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sound buy I was looking for a low cost way to improve the sound quality from a medium size (about 36 inch Samsung) TV. The picture is excellent, but the sound rather thin. This base delivers the goods. Exceptionally easy to set up. Comes with its own fibre optic lead, so just plug and play. Integrated electronics in the handset means it will even work with just one handset for the base and TV.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from modest outlay for very modest return Hugely disappointing – there is nothing to recommend this piece of equipment. The remote control seems to choose for itself when to operate; the mute button lowers but seldom properly cuts out sound; the four controls labelled Film, TV, Voice and Music appear to be purely cosmetic. Certainly they make no difference to the quality or tone of the sound which is in any event markedly inferior to that produced by our LG tv. Finally, and perhaps most irritatingly, the volume control lacks all subtlety, a single click increasing the sound from the barely audible to the annoyingly loud. I can think of nothing positive to say of this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This box does what I want Bought this last week and its just as good as id hoped it would be. Great sound throught the tv and have started listening to the music radio stations on the tv now that the bass sound is so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute gift at £119 I'm really pleased with version 1 of the TV2 soundbase. Granted, there's a newer and (I'm sure) better model available, but for £119 this one is a gift. It's simple to set up, after which it can be forgotten. The improvement on the TV sound is very convincing, and I have an old CRT TV with proper stereo speakers. I imagine that the improvement for a flat screen model (with limited speaker size) would be even greater. I'd have given it 5 stars for sound quality, but Cambridge Audio also do a TV5, with two subwoofers, which I'm certain will sound even better. The killer USP, for me, was the ability to fit the TV2 onto a 100mm high shelf space in the TV unit. Nothing else would squeeze in that space, certainly not a conventional centre speaker. Full marks to Cambridge Audio (who, incidentally, offer an excellent online help service via email) and Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GREAT BOX OF SOUND Terrific peace of kit, I am deaf, however my wife is not, or so she thought. Now we both can hear what is being said, as some these television programmes can be a bit mute, not anymore. Great sound quality sound all round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enhanced TV Sound Magic As you may know televisions do not come with a lot of sound output, and can sometimes sound a bit tinny and quiet. I bought this sound base following other good reviews and you can't normally go wrong with Cambridge. Once easily connected and set up the sound fills your lounge with great sound and a new sound that your ears have never heard before! I heard some running water and thought I had a leaking pipe but it was from the television. Very smooth operation and once you have adjusted the sound to suit you via the remote it's all good. Bonus in the box it comes with an optical lead for better sound quality but if buying get RS to check first just in case. Great box of tricks thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I've only had this for a couple of weeks and it sounds great. Much more detail in the audio from the TV that I'd previously been missing. It's ok for background music through bluetooth but not hifi quality by any stretch of the imagination, but that's not why I bought it. I wanted an entry level system to enhance the sound of my telly without having to plonk a sub in my living room somewhere and that's exactly what it delivers. Note - it's not as loud as I would have expected through the tv, while music is fine. Not sure if this is something to do with my TV/Sky setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and integrate and a great sound Purchased the V1 (did not have the HDMI input available on the V2) which meant it was a very good price, Optical connection works very well. Good help and advice from the staff a Richer Sounds - happy customer.
