"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 are 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 5 out of 5 by from Good sound, especially for speech We had an orbit sound bat that was fine but speech was not as clear as we wished. Having read reviews we settled on the canton as it did everything we wanted in one box. Speech on TV and DVD is much clearer and it's easy to use. Nice to have a proper remote you can feel, rather than credit card type things.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good sound from 1 box. Very happy with this purchase.Easy to set up and operate without the need of a sub woofer although this can be added if required.The six years guarantee offer is a no brainer.If you don't use it you don't loose it...you get the money back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily controllable amplification and clarity Purchased for the sound enhancement. Has totally obviated the necessity for sub-titles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transformed TV sound What a difference this has made to my television sound. A neat unit with a nicely balanced tone which has brought life to all types of programmes and films. Easy to set up. I opted to buy a Cambridge Audio SX120 Subwoofer too, and this has improved the already fantastic bass quality from the DM55. Not a necessary addition but certainly adds to the experience. Had an issue with one of the Aux inputs on my original unit, but this was replaced straight away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Early days but pleased so far I have had this for just a week, bought as replacement for an Orbit Sound unit which had some sound issues (unclear speech, some resonance). So far I am pleased with the sound. Controls are easy and bluetooth connectivity is useful. Have yet to really push it with loud film for example.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible reliability I purchased this product approximately 2.5 years ago. Around 18 months after purchase it started to develop a fault whereby the unit would not play sound but it was intermittent so I decided to live with it. Now just after the warranty has expired the unit has completely failed and will not play sound from any source! Canton refuse to offer a goodwill repair and instead I'm left with an expensive box under the TV or have to stump up for a £171 repair! That repair price is half the original purchase price and to top it off they would only provide a 3 month warranty. I do not expect an expensive AV piece of equipment to fail in this manner. Sounded great when it worked! Avoid

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not ideal I bought the Canton DM55 because I was hoping for greater speech clarity when watching TV, however accepting not much can be done about actors mumbling. The Canton had good reviews and was ideal in terms of dimensions and looks. However it was disappointing for my requirements. I found no benefit other than it increased volume.Making adjustments to the settings made no differerence. Perhaps I am looking for something that is not available. The only plus point was that I had an an agreement to return within 7 days for full refund.
