Richer Sounds exclusive model.

"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 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, but strange static sound at times I bought this to replace a magnificent Canton DM55, only because the stand on my Panasonic TV which I had purchased last year (from RS Middlesbrough) was too wide for the Canton and it looked daft. I couldn’t afford the Canton DM76 or Sonos Playbase, so based looked at other options, and settled on the TV5 V2 based on the number of 5* customer and tech reviews and it being from a British company. I’ve had my TV5 V2 for just under 3 months now, and I have to say that initially I was very underwhelmed. The sound wasn’t anything special, especially compared my old Canton. Fast forward 3 months though, and it’s nicely run in and I’m much happier. Although still not quite on the level of the Canton, the sound from the TV5 V2 is fantastic, from clear speech in interviews/documentaries/dramas etc to rumbling bass and clarity of things like breaking glass/gunfire during action scenes, and the detail in the sound of the crowd during the footy. We’ve had the volume up high for movies and music and it is impressive. It did take a while to run in but now it’s there it’s fab. The negative, and why I haven’t given 5 starts is two fold. On a lesser level there is hardly any difference between the fixed presets (TV/voice/music/film) so that’s a bit pointless and disappointing. My major gripe though is that there’s a regular static type sound coming through the speaker, especially when turning it on or changing the TV input (Sky to DVD etc). This happens regardless of whether it’s run on optical cable or HDMI Arc, and I’ve tried changing audio settings on the TV and that didn’t resolve it either. It’s really frustrating but is very intermittent so hard to diagnose and resolve. It’s a shame as it detracts from what would otherwise have been a 5* review. The advice and service from Richer Sounds Middlesbrough was spot on as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality sound, practical stylish design I bought this product a few weeks ago to augment the sound quality on an 10 year old TV. I have been delighted with the service and advice received in store from Richer Sounds which has proved to be completely accurate. The sound base easily connected to my TV and has transformed our viewing experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trust the reviews An excellent value-for-money soundbase that belies it’s competitive price. If this is what you are looking for don’t hesitate. If there is any criticism it is that the instructions are too brief. But with a modicum of common sense you can have it working in minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound..great buy...great price I bought this a month ago when I felt I needed to boost and equalise the sound on my 4HD TV which I felt has always been lacking and inconsistent between programmes. What a huge difference! No need to constantly alter volume levels and the quality and bass is stunning. With onboard subwoofer fits beautifully under the TV. Recommended 5 star performance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overall sound from an unassuming box. Originally bought a smaller soundbase but having got my measurements wrong Richer Sounds happily replaced it for this model (open box). Easy set up, even with optical cable for which it seems to work better. Sound overall excellent, particularly with movies and music from my SkyQ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new soundbase I bought this to replace an old Cambridge Audio TV1 soundbar. This is a much better piece of kit - very easy to set up with the single HDMI lead and with very good sound. It automatically switches on when the TV is activated and the remote is much more substantial than the very small (and quite pathetic) remote that Cambridge Audio used to provide and was always being lost down the side of chairs and sofas. Highly recommended. Our new Panasonic OLED TV has quite good sound anyway, but the TV5 V2 has made a noticeable improvement.
