Richer Sounds exclusive model.

The Cambridge Audio TV2 V2 sound base improves on its award-winning predecessor with a wide range of enhancements, including HDMI connectivity.


The best just got better

Improving this multi-award-winning sound base hasn't been easy but Cambridge Audio has managed to make the best even better! Now featuring an HDMI socket with ARC, connecting is even easier and higher quality. A 50% increase in power gives an even more immersive sound while extra EQ settings make it more tuneable to your taste than ever. Finally, improved aptX Bluetooth connectivity improves the sound quality of your streamed music.

Still a great boost for your TV's sound
Using twin BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drive units, the Cambridge TV2 V2 gives pinpoint accuracy and is bursting with detail, even at high volumes. BMR technology combines the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers, meaning that the TV2 V2 is truly dynamic and won't turn harsh when the 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.

Bluetooth music streaming
In addition to making your TV sound great, the TV2 V2 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 V2 supports aptX Bluetooth, it's delivered in near CD quality.

Selectable sound modes and bass adjustment
Whatever the content, the Cambridge TV2 V2 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. Finally, 'Voice' mode improves clarity and is ideal for those hard of hearing or sitting further back from the speaker. Once you've chosen the best setting simply dial up or down the bass to suit.

Simple to use
Using the TV2 V2 is easy. Simply connect your TV by HDMI, optical digital, 3.5mm or RCA phono sockets and you're ready to go. These will also accept a second source, such as CD/DVD/Blu-ray player. The simple remote control offers all the basics, but the TV2 V2 should also support your existing TV remote. The sensor in the TV2 V2 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.

Hear the sound from your TV and smartphone just as it should be - gloriously full-bodied and natural, with the improved Cambridge Audio TV2 V2.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good clarity. Had the Cambridge sound base,as a replacement for a Q Acoustic m2, which failed twice in 16 months. Richer Sounds were first class in sending me the replacement unit within 3days,many thanks to all concerned. Quite pleased with the Cambridge, spoken word much clearer.I would say the bass is lacking a touch, but then for the money it’s ok. Thanks again to Bristol staff. Wouldn’t shop anywhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation. Excellent sound and controls I purchased this sound base on recommendation of richer sounds who were extremely helpful. All completed via telephone. They were excellent in their guidance so important since I am not technical at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cambridge sound bar This is a excellent unit and the only fault that I can find is that with the TV on it seems a bit scratchy. I also notice that the base sound is not there. I purchased a Cambridge sound bar from you a long while ago and the sound on that is totally different. However it is still a good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TV Sound vastly improved Easy and intuitive to connect, worked straight out of the box. Just what I was hoping for as regards improvement in sound. I must say though that I can't tell the difference between music, tv, speech and film settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference!! We have struggled for some time with 'mumbling drama', overloud 'background' music and poor overall sound from our 32 inch flat screen tv. The 'black box' is a revelation. Small and discrete enough not to look intrusive the improvement in sound quality is simply outstanding. A very impressive piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great under-computer-monitor speaker! I'm now regularly working from home and so I wanted to replace a pair of bookshelf speakers that were cluttering up my desk. Although a bit on the large size for a desk, the TV2 is working well sat beneath and supporting my 27" monitor. It is hooked up to my amplifier line out for CD and Vinyl playback, and to my Apple TV optical output for streaming via AirPlay. Not tried bluetooth yet. Sound quality is very good using the "music" EQ setting at both background and also louder volumes. Well balanced and detailed with a good stereo sound stage. Recommended for your desk if it is big enough!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best solution for small TV Bought this for my father-in-law, who was having trouble with quiet dialogue (like many of us!). Needed to fit beneath a 32" Panasonic, so limited by width. He also doesn't like 'booming' bass, so no sub-woofer. Decided on the Cambridge Audio TV2 V2 soundbase. Deliverd quickly, and he managed to connect it up himself (although, oddly, although his Panasonic tx-l32x15b has an HDMI socket clearly marked as ARC, the manual states that it "can't be used for external audio devices" - I thought that was the idea of ARC?!?) Used the RCA inputs, and he's very pleased with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound I had been looking at different options to better my sound. Cambridge Audio TV2 V2 fitted the bill. It has a rich sound and looks good. The price was important and at that price I've been very happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive performer! Bought this to replace the Yamaha sound bar which was too long for the 32" Sony. Was pleasantly surprised by how solid it was and how unobtrusive the sound base is under the TV. Also found the sound of the Cambridge Audio to be much less boomy and and clearer on speech than the Yamaha. All connected up very simply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound without being overwhelming. At the time of writing this, I have had the Cambridge Audio TV2 V2 for a week or so. I am using it in a room which is not huge and I find the sound nicely rounded without being overwhelming. It sounds natural but much better than the original TV sound system. Speech is much clearer and music is far more enjoyable. There is more drama. A big plus for me is that the unit takes up no extra space at all, with the TV standing on top of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound easy setup I bought the Cambridge audio to replace a Canton soundbox which failed after 4 years and was itself a replacement for one which had broken after a couple of months. The Cambridge is in my opinion better sound than the Canton and half the price. Hopefully it will last longer also

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% Perfect!! The sound we get from this is excellent, plenty of but not too much base, it has added real depth to our tv sound. Connected vis headphone was ok, but bought a coaxial to optical converter and it is now fantastic!
Date published: 2020-09-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fair sound and poor instructions Compared with my previous Canton base (which had broken down while under guarantee) the sound is edgy and 'toppy'. There is no straightforward frequency alteration possible. Also the instructions are vague and very unhelpful. - without the guidance of Richer Sounds staff , impossible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely pleased Very pleased with improvement of sound. At first I couldn't get it activate but after speaking to a person at Richer Sounds who knew exactly what the problem was it works perfectly. The issue was that my TV did not automatically 'speak' to it but once I knew what to do all was well. It has made it much clearer for my husband to hear what is being said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality sound and well made We bought this sound base when it was recently on offer, which has made it a very good value purchase. The base is a good quality product and delivers clear, deep (at times) and amplified sound for a 32" LG TV also recently purchased from RS. The setting up is relatively easy and offers all cable options which are all supplied. The four sound modes give options for different types of viewing however these differences can be very subtle. The film mode definitely enhances the sound when watching a range of films, while the music mode works particularly well when listening to the radio or when streaming music via the bluetooth connectivity (which is also relatively easy to set up). The remote control feels very solid and matches the quality of the base itself. The base sits neatly within an oval AVF stand and is a tidy and unfussy looking device that works well in an average sized lounge. Overall I would definitely recommend this product, however it would have been better if the optical lead was 1m rather than the 80cm supplied to ensure the lead can connect to the TV with a little extra to spare. If you can purchase this device when it's on offer, then you can't go wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, solidly made sound base Have been using this device for a couple of weeks now and am generally impressed with it. Not too bulky and sits neatly beneath the tv. It has vastly improved the audio quality and we no longer struggle to decipher voices. There are four different sound profiles including movie mode, TV, music and speech. I can’t say that the difference between these is very pronounced but am not really bothered about this. I have slight hearing loss and this base does the job well. Connection to the tv is very simple with the included lead. The remote has a button for adjusting the volume of the downward facing sub woofer and it’s possible to “train” the tv remote to control the overall volume but not to mute the sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performs as expected Pleased with the enhanced sound that this provides for my TV. Easy to order and delivered the next working day. Good service and I will use Richer Sounds again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I not buy one of these before? I had been persevering with repurposed computer speakers messily improving my televisions weedy sound and finally gave in to buying something proper on a budget. I couldn't be happier with the Cambridge. Effortless to set up and everything put through it sounds so much better. Bluetooth with the iPhone works well, and there's some good solid bass in there too. I'm really pleased with the TV2.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this to improve the sound from my TV and wasn't disappointed. It has added depth and warmth to the sound. The only niggle was that the instructions for connection were not that clear. You need to make sure that the hdmi lead is connected to the Arc hdmi input on your TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy setup seamless sound I bought this to replace a sound bar and subwoofer which was always temperamental. Everything about it, from the packaging to the sound, felt good. Easy to set up, flicked from one input to another first time without hesitation. Sounded good for the price paid

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant speaker What a great speaker For the first time In a very long time my husband is able to hear the TV clearly. He has a hearing disability which makes the TV impossible to hear even with his hearing aids in. However this Cambridge speaker has solved all of his problems. The delivery following the order for the speaker was absolutely superb here within two days and in perfect condition. I would recommend both the speaker and richer sounds to anybody looking for a similar piece of equipment. Thank you Richard sounds you have made life so much easier

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, looks good and sounds great I bought this sound stage 2 weeks ago to improve the sound from my Panasonic 40” TV. Delighted with the results. The sound is night and day – especially with the built-in subwoofer underneath. Exactly what I was looking for. I bought this sound stage as all the soundbars I looked at were either too wide for the stand or would not fit in front or under the TV. This sound stage was ideal as the TV pedestal stand sits directly on top. It looks now like part of the TV to be honest. Note: If you plan putting your TV on top, check the dimensions first – this is the perfect size for a 40” TV with a pedestal stand no wider than 550mm. Otherwise check you can fit it underneath the TV, between the stands or on a shelf underneath (there’s also the bigger TV5 but that would have dwarfed my 40” TV). The sound output is stereo (as most soundbars at this price are) plus bass. You just need to set the TV audio output option to PCM to get the best sound. In my case, it was a case of using the HDMI ARC cable and it was plug and play – couldn’t be simpler and my TV remote also controls the volume. I love when things just work like this! It even came with the HDMI and digital optical cables. It was very easy using the Bluetooth feature to connect up to a smart speaker (simple press of bluetooth on remote control and paired with Amazon Echo in seconds). Would like a visual display of levels and volume. Otherwise a great, simple design. Easy to use, looks good and sounds great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product and good value For the money, this is quite impressive. OK, so it may lack certain features compared to pricier alternatives but in terms of clarity (which is what I was looking for) it delivers. It doesn't quite have the "punch" I was expecting, but compared to my TV's built in speakers, it's a significant improvement. Initially I could get no sound when accessing Netflix or Amazon Prime. I emailed Richer Sounds who responded very quickly and advised that it does not support certain audio codecs and to access the sound settings menu on my TV to select "PCM or Stereo" rather than DTS. This worked fine. Like all speaker products, it will likely improve with "running in" as indeed is already sounding better in this regard. Fast delivery and good support from Richer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think it helps a bit I mentioned to a friend that there's no point in me watching films on TV (films are all I ever would watch on TV) because I can't hear the dialogue well enough to follow the plot if there is one. For me, American drawl is impossible so many films are out anyway. It's probably age related deafness but I have never found a hearing aid very useful so who knows. The friend said flat screen TVs have inadequate speakers and I should buy a sound base. He has a 7-year old Sony and recommended one of those but his model is obsolete A bit of research led to the Cambridge Audio TV5, which is too wide then the TV2 which is about right. The TV2 only woofs with 1 woofer but I imagine 1 is enough. I still can't follow American drawl, especially when it is loaded down with soundtrack musak but in general I think I can follow film dialogues a bit better. Not all of it, but more than without the sound base. I don't find much difference between the 4 presets or whether the woofer is woofing up or down but the speakers have more clarity. It doesn't look at all out of place with the TV standing on it, it connected easily with the optical cable supplied and programming the TV remote to be used as a volume control was simple. Trouble with that is that it turns the TV speakers up/down too. It would be useful to be able to de-program the TV volume but I can't so I have to mute the TV. A bit of knob-juggling is required getting the volume right because the TV volume comes back on with a vengeance when I change the volume, up or down. The volume button de-mutes. I could program any 2 buttons to be Vol+ and Vol- but they are all used for something or other so, for example, it would be possible to change the channel at the same time as adjusting the volume but not very useful. I tried programming buttons on the video recording device remote instead of the TV remote. There are no volume buttons on that remote so I chose 2 I thought didn't do anything useful, then found that when I turned the volume down it replayed the last minute of the film. I wondered what that button did. It only does something when replaying a recording. I went back to the TV volume buttons. It appears to be able to 'learn' any code it is fed for both Vol- &Vol+ which is good. The Bluetooth worked fine so I was able to play music originating on my smatphone at an annoyingly high volume. I wouldn't want to do it but I can. It is a feature and it works, which is good. One other thing worth mentioning. I don't watch TV, I only watch recorded films so I can skip the ads, so the sound I am hearing originates from the video device, not the TV. It is sent to the TV along a SCART cable. The question was, would the sound base pick up this audio without a separate connection. The answer is, YES it does. A separate connection, although a possible solution, is not required, which is also good. It's all good really, I'm just not sure exactly how much it helps with my hearing difficulty. It certainly doesn't do any harm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice understated box! This is our first voyage into improving the sound of our 32" Samsung TV. After doing much research, we opted for this model, rather than a sound bar. We opted to purchase from Richer Sounds, because of the legendary customer service. The soundbase arrived promptly, and was well packaged by the manufacturer. What did surprise me was that several different connecting leads were supplied, with Cambridge Sounds recommending which to use, in order of sound quality. Thankfully we have an optical output, so could use the recommended source, rather than HDMI, RCA, etc. We're really pleased with the improvement of the sound quality, and may buy another one for the mother in law. Highly recommended; thanks, Richer Sounds. Chris chris_debian 2E0FRU

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, value for money. I bought my Cambridge Audio TV2 V2 three weeks ago and very pleased with it and very easy to operate. I had a few issues when setting it up but Customer Services Ian was just a phone call away to talk me through it, he was helpful, knowledgeable and patient. I have purchased several items from Richer Sounds including an LG TV and head phones and have always been happy with my purchases.
