"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 A worthy replacement for DM50 The Canton DM50 did an exceptional job for 2 years. Unfortunately the device then developed faults with standby and intermittent loss of sound that are well documented on the Internet. Luckily the device was covered by the Richer Sounds extended warranty. I returned the device to the shop at Nottingham where I received outstanding service. The faults were readily accepted, an exchange transacted for the newer DM55, refund provided (because the DM55 is cheaper than the DM50) and an extended warranty was purchased from part of the refund. The DM55 wasn't in stock, but was delivered to me on the Monday after my Friday visit to the shop. The DM55 was very easy to install, and everything including Bluetooth was working within 20 minutes. The piano black case of the DM55 goes well with my TV and stand. The sound is as good if not better than the DM50, even though I have to place it on a shelf below the TV. The DM55 does an excellent job; it is not a full surround sound bar, but it is more than adequate for my needs of enhanced sound for my Sky package and DVDs and it is a device that I would recommend. Of course it was a shame that I had the issues with the DM50. However, the peace of mind provided by the Richer Sounds warranty and customer service more than outweighs my worries for issues that may (or may not) arise in the future with my new Canton DM55.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes TV sound great. For this amount of money this sound bar will take some beating. Simple to install it's worth running it for some time before making the finer sound adjustments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bit of kit Bought this from the Reading store in conjunction with a new Sony TV. If budget had allowed I would have bought a Sonos sound base but couldn't justify the expense. When you fire this bad boy up you won't be disappointed. It's perfectly adept at day to day TV viewing and voices are beautifully clear. Turning to films whether it be via Netflix or Blu-Ray this Canton shakes the house to the core. There's quick Bass and Treble control via the remote if it's needed and Bluetooth connectivity to stream from iTunes or Spotify from your mobile device. I did swap this DM55 for a wider DM75 so the TV could sit on top and the Reading store were very happy to accommodate this change. At less than half the price of the Sonos with perhaps minimal (if any) drop in sonic performance, this is a great option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and build quality The Canton Dm55 met my needs for a decent TV soundbase perfectly. Impressive sound, really well made and very neat under TV. Only criticizm is only one optical input, two would have been good for PS4 and Tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great soundbox This was purchased to replace a DM50 which had gone faulty. I was delighted with the DM50 and this is a great replacement. The features on the 2 boxes are very similar and easy to set up with the tv, however the output on the DM55 seems to be more powerful as I don't need the volume turned up as loud as on the DM50. The ability of the DM55 to learn my tv remote is especially good, avoiding having 2 remotes to turn on/off and change the volume. The sound is very clear and precise with good treble and base range. The sound was synced with the picture as soon as I turned it on. A great product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boost to TV sound I bought this to replace a stereo amp and speaker setup which had broken. It replaces lots of wires and separate units with one sleek unit which sits under the TV, aesthetically it is therefore a big improvement. The sound is very good and clear. It lacks the sheer volume of the stereo amp and speakers but is a much better experience for watching TV and films as the speech is significantly clearer and more 'centred'. The power is plenty to listen to a film at 'plenty loud enough' but occasionally, when listening to music I wish it could go louder without sounding stressed. Obviously I also lose in the stereo separation but this isn't something I'm troubled by. Overall, I'm really happy with this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected from German engineering Bought a dm50 two and a half years ago and now doesn't work I paid three hundred and ninety nine pounds disappointed is not the word.
