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 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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The experience of an ancient buyer! A well built Soundbase with so much 'going for it.' Lots of variety of choice in the sound production. I would urge the manufacturers to produce a printed guide (or full diagram) of the various functions of the handset. I would really like to have the benefit of one!

I bought this product as i have bought several items from Richer Sounds in the past.They are a good firm and give good deals.I am considering a new cd player and would buy from this firm again.The sound base is very good and improves the tv sound quality especially with the price as it is today.You can buy better but you will have to pay a lot more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound for money. I bought a Samsung n300 soundbar for £120 and was seriously disappointed with the total absence of anything even resembling bass, also Bluetooth didn't work. Found this after a little more digging and the price was brilliant. So impressed with the sound, for music, gaming, films or zoom. The settings are simple enough for me, I'm no audiophile but the sound quality is fantastic. If you really like it loud and with real bass punch I'd recommend the tv5 as it adds a second sub. But this is perfect for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial issues but happy now Purchased the C.A. Tv2 v2 a few weeks ago, despatched and delivered really quickly. Unfortunately the unit had an issue and wouldn't respond to the remote, richer sounds customer services advisor Mark. B was really helpful and resolved the issue, had a replacement sent out and the original unit collected as quickly as possible given the current situation. I'm really happy with the tv2 v2, great improvement on the built-in tv speakers and the Bluetooth connection is hassle free. Even with the faulty unit I give the tv2 v2 and richer sounds service 5*

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cable issues Usual great service from Richer Sounds and fast delivery. The Cambridge TV2 V2 output is so much better than my tv’s internal speakers and we can finally hear speech, action, explosions etc on our favourite movies without altering the volume. I was pleasantly surprised that both HDMI and optical cables were included but unfortunately they were not long enough for my particular installation, no problem as I had a spare HDMI cable and a HDMI(ARC) connection on the tv so the TV2 would start automatically, unfortunately using this setup caused communication issues: tv switching between HDMI channels, sound from TV2 for five seconds then nothing, tv reverting from home cinema to internal speakers, somewhat frustrating as we needed three remotes to get the setup right every time we switched the tv on. Noting the TV2 instructions recommend the optical output is used, I bought a longer optical cable and removed the HDMI and now everything works perfectly. The only other disappointment was when carefully removing the front cover to pair my tv remote some of the plastic retaining lugs snapped off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Value! It’s taken me a couple of weeks to pluck up the courage to instal this system as I live alone! I’m in my late 70’s, but by taking it slowly I did it, and it was surprisingly simple. My previous T.V. sound base was Bose, it was 11 years old when it finally failed, but the Cambridge TV2 tv sound plinth is just as good, at a fraction of the price. I’m a very happy and satisfied customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seamless integration, great sound. I bought this product two weeks ago, and the setup was really straightforward and the sound excellent. It is really enhanced my TV, which was good in all respects except the sound was disappointing. It operates seamlessly with the remote control and gives a much-needed boost and presence when watching all types of TV. I would not hesitate in recommending. Super service. Prompt delivery a happy returning customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound I received this product yesterday,from R.S. Belfast,to replace a 5 year old - other manufacturer-base. I am amazed with the difference it has made. Lovely depth of sound, clear speech and good detail on music. I find that the Film setting works best for me. I particularly like the choice of adjusting the subwoofer, makes a huge difference as my last base had only two settings for bass, either on or off. Excellent value for money also at the price I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great enhancement for our TV Age related hearing decline meant that it was more difficult to follow speech especially in dramas. This brilliant piece of kit solved everything at a stroke. It was really easy to set up and works unobtrusively with auto on and off. I especially liked it’s ability to link to our TV remote volume controls. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound Base Had the Cambridge Soundbase just over a week as a replacement for a Polk Soundbar. Must say the Cambridge looks good and seems to be a high quality product for the price, and has a well balanced and clear sound, which isn't drowned out by the base. Really easy to set up, with optic cable included, and the remote is a decent size and quality. Must give Richer Sounds customer service 5 stars for instigating and arranging my replacement without any quibble whatsoever. Proof that when they say they want good customer satisfaction they really mean it!!..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last! I can turn off the subtitles Bought this as I was fed up with not being able to hear dialogue, and background music sounding tinny. It’s great and does a brilliant job in a relatively discrete package. I (my wife) didn’t want a big soundbar and speakers under the sofas etc, do this was an ideal solution. Dead easy to set up, too. Just plug in and it’s ready to use.
