"Beautifully built, sounds gorgeous, and its more affordable than before whats not to love?"What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2016

Hi-Fi quality sound for your TV
Canton is a leading German loudspeaker company, so the DM55's superb sound comes as little surprise. Twin, soft dome tweeters are matched to 50mm midrange units to give exceptional vocal realism. Compared to the boxy and distorted sound of typical TV speakers, the DM55 sounds open, detailed and natural. Hear details that the TV's speakers simply glossed over or distorted.

Powerful bass with twin built-in woofers
The DM 55 goes further still by offering a powerful and extended bass response. Twin, downward firing 100mm woofer cones give this sound base depth and high volume dynamics that even other soundbars and sound bases struggle to match. This sound base gives you the sort of powerful, dynamic sound that you'd usually only expect from a separate amp and speaker system. For even more bass, simply connect up a sub via the dedicated output.

Adjustable sound to suit
You can tune the sound to your taste with the DM55's three preset EQ modes. These are designed to get the best sound out of the sound base with or without a TV placed on top and when placed in a rack. Stereo and surround modes tailor the sound for watching movies or listening to music via the Bluetooth streaming. Finally, lip sync adjustment means the sound syncs with the image, without any annoying delay.

Bluetooth music streaming
As well as making your TV sound great, the Canton DM 55 also offers easy Bluetooth music streaming. Using the high quality apt-X Bluetooth codec, you can stream music from your smartphone, tablet or Bluetooth-equipped laptop or desktop computer. Stream your music library or use a music streaming service such as Spotify and enjoy a massive range of music in Canton quality.

Easy to connect
Unlike some, the DM55 comes with both optical and coaxial digital inputs. Combined with the analogue input, this makes it suitable for pretty much any TV.

Elegant style
With its subtle high gloss top and semi gloss body, the DM55 takes sound base style to a whole new level. Despite its good looks, the DM55 will still hold TVs up to 40kg in weight - enough for all but the largest sets. A quality remote control is also included and, thanks to an IR learning function, is compatible with your TV's remote. Finally, a multifunction display keeps you informed of all the settings and adjustments made.

High-end style meets even higher quality sound for a listening experience that transforms your TV's sound.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I bought one of these from Richer Sounds. Have had endless problems with the sound jumping from very high one minute to very low in the same program when you turn it down to an acceptable volume. Even more annoyed that it was the store manager that recommended it to me . I won’t be going back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive sound; great value I had to return the first DM55 as it developed a fault after 3 days, but Richer Sounds were swift to replace it. This soundbase looks great and appears to be very solidly constructed. Sounds cleanest on the stereo setting and improves TV sound a lot, though volume setting needs to be very high (85 - 90/99) using the optical digital cable. Maybe I'm going deaf! The volume is better using the supplied phono lead. The bluetooth connection for use with a phone/iPod works particularly well and, whilst the quality of sound can't match a decent 'separates' system, it is still great to listen to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound and quality build I bought the sounder a few weeks ago and love it. So much better than my panasonic sound bar and sub woofer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Sound Base I initially wanted the Cambridge Audio sound base but was put off by the physical size. After reading reviews I went for the Canton .I received excellent service at Richer Sounds Liverpool and am impressed with my purchase-very easy to set up and happy with sound.It is especially good for music through the TV and there is no delay on speech which was an issue with my previous sound base.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound is great, We had bought a well known similar product for the same price but were disappointed with the sound, spoke to a salesperson at lichfield and had some good advice re our budget and quality. He ordered it in for us and we are very pleased with the sound quality

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So convenient and easy to use Its primary function for me was to add weight to my TV sound and it certainly does that. The convenience of auto on/off and remote learning is great. The hi fi via Bluetooth can’t match separates but for the price is not so bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canton DM55 Superb sound quality, excellent appearance, the remote linked easily with the TV and bluetooth, is robust and looks stronger than a Tonka toy. Service and delivery from Richer sounds was faultless.
