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 5 out of 5 by from Quality as expected Having read good reviews for Cambridge Audio TV5 V2 I have not been disappointed so far, apart from the broken pegs on the front grille which I was told about - it is an open box purchase anyway. I am in my first day and pushing a variety of sources through it to really test it, both low and high and low levels. A worthy replacement for my previous soundbar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and fits and looks well under the T.V Richer Sounds did us proud .The delivery was rapid.The advice given prior to purchase was spot on.The sound system sounds great and complements our T.V perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from God sound, not too obtrusive Old sound bar died and Flat screen TV sound is very feeble, so this box was essential. One odd thing, it switches on when TV is switched on but does not switch off when TV does.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but careful if you want Netflix The product looks and sounds great! However, be careful if you want to use Netflix. I have a Panasonic TV (Not sure if this is a problem for other TV brands). The soundable works fine with TV, Amazon Prime Movies, You Tube, etc. But - Netflix only broadcasts in Dolby Digital+ and the soundable optical input relies on a format called PCM. So - You can't get any sound from Netflix. The only way I can get it to work with Netflix is to connect it to the headphone output via 3.5 mm jack cable - doesn't sound anywhere near as good as optical. I can't get the HMDI/ARC connection to work with my Panasonic tv because the soundable isn't Panasonic and doesn't support their VieraLink protocol. As I said - not sure how many of these problems are down to my Panasonic TV - but worth checking to see if there are any issues with using HMDI or Netflix on your TV before buying. Otherwise - Great sound and really easy to use!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Sound from a Large Box I have had this for a couple of weeks now. The sound quality is very good.I would have preferred slightly better stereo separation but that is a minor quibble. The bass is excellent . Speech quality is much improved from the TV and the sound on films is excellent. The installation instructions were minimal but I was able to set it up reasonably quickly. I had to footer about with the TV settings a bit to find out which setting aloud sound to play through an external speaker but I suppose that is more of a TV issue. The box is large compared with most other TV sound bars but this is because it is all integrated into one box including the bass speakers which I like.It switches on/off with the TV but you still need the additional remote to alter the volume/ switch on blue tooth etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok needs more hdmi Great sound but needs hdmi inputs not just the one it has The hdmi arc does not work very well with my tv but the optical cable works. Just means you need to use the remote instead of the tv one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its brought a Prom into our living room We bought this product 10 days ago and are enjoying the great sound
Date published: 2020-08-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good sound for the price! A neat little unit, with good sound, especially when watching movies and the bass kicks in! A doddle to set up, and no messing about with cables and trying to find space for floor standing speakers or bolting things to walls! As mentioned in other reviews, when I removed the front curved plastic grill to line up the speaker with my TV stand, one of the plastic lugs broke off. Not noticeable once back together, but a pretty flimsy design. If your TV has an HDMI output with ARC, then you won't need the remote control once set up is complete. Maybe for music playback, but haven't tried that yet as have another system for that.
