"A sonically superb soundbase from the bass to the treble - with sturdiness and style to boot." 'What Hi-Fi? magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £300.

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 enhanced 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 TV5 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 TV5 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.

Powerful bass
In terms of bass power and dynamics, the TV5 V2 offers a substantial upgrade over the TV2 V2. With two rather than one subwoofer units, the TV5 V2 has twice the power. In addition, the internal cabinet area is larger and there are twin bass output ports, which not only increases the TV5 V2's volume potential, but also makes it a more moving experience for films and music. Bass goes lower for longer and the dynamic response is enhanced for those all-important goose bump moments!

Bluetooth music streaming
In addition to making your TV sound great, the TV5 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 TV5 V2 supports aptX Bluetooth, it's delivered in near CD quality.

Selectable sound modes and bass adjustment
Whatever the content, the Cambridge TV5 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 TV5 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 TV5 V2 should also support your existing TV remote. The sensor in the TV5 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.

Getting a big TV is only half the picture. Complete the home cinema experience with the powerful-sounding Cambridge Audio TV5 V2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Piece of Kit A very good solid piece of kit to account for poor sound reproduction from in-built TV speakers. Found it very easy to set up and it linked automatically via the HDMI ARC connection on my LG TV. It kicks out plenty of room filling sound and in my opinion has a good level of bass. I've also connected a DVD Player into the sound base via the component audio inputs, so I can play music without the TV being turned on. The only small niggle is the brightness of the front mounted LED status light, which I feel is too bright - I've managed to dull it down to an acceptable level though, using a temporary/removable fix.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No great shakes I bought this about 3 weeks ago and am not overly impressed with the sound quality. Yes its loud, but it doesnt seem to be any better than the old yamaha soundbar (cost about £120) that it replaces. Perhaps it will improve but currently it sounds muddy, even with a good quality optical cable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expected Performance achieved I bought the Cambridge TV5 just over two weeks ago. Setting up took me a while as I had assumed all I needed for connection to my LG TV was the HDMI ARC cable. This did not work. I eventually cracked and read the TV manual, and I spotted the statement that HDMI ARC should be connected, but that the audiio output would appear at the optical connection. When I connected that, the system worked extremely well, giving far better sound than TV speakers. Two slight niggles, sound out put does go up and down in fairly large jumps so getting sound just right is troublesome, and twice now the system has stopped giving output after a channel change. I had to turn it off and on again and it recovered. If it happens often I will have to consider sending it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent product for my needs I looked for a sound bar but all hid the remote sensor on my Sony TV. This soundbase allows me to plave the TV on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up, looks good and gives a great sound I bought this two weeks ago and pleased we did as easy to set up, it looks good and transforms the sound from our flat screen Tv

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and sound Bought to replaced a dying orbitsound this has been faultless in the month I have owned it. We mostly watch TV so my review centres onTV sound rather than anything cinematic. That said we're watching a recorded episode of Planet Earth II and theres some big music while a buffalo battles some lions - excellent and clear thundering dramatic sound with good vocal clarity when David A gives us the descriptive chat. For comparison I listened to a Roth Neo soundbase in store and the sound quality was much thinner with unsatisfying bass. This base takes optical input and HDMI ARC. I'm running it on HDMI with the control benefits that gives but it was a bit tedious to set up - not the soundbases fault but the the inherent finicky-ness of ARC; connected with none of my other YV HDMI inputs its fine, and its fine with 2 other HDMI inputs plugged into the TV but the minute I put a 4h one in it all stops working. Simple solution is to pretend the 4th HDMI on the TV (Panasonic tx-p50gt50b) doesn't exist. Nice solid remote (much better than the orbitsound one) and a plain but understated finish to the base which I like. Long story short - an excellent bit of kit and I have no hesitation in recommending it to you. Also - if you are in the Birmingham area, Rohan in the store in town is a legend. Patient and knowledgeable - an assist to Richer Sounds.
