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 1 out of 5 by from Good job it’s cheap ‘cause it’s rubbish Bought this to update as my old Denon soundbar was over 10 years old and no Bluetooth.All the reviews were good so thought I go for it.I didn’t think having no digital level display ( for volume etc) would matter.It does.You have no idea where you are with not only volume but the sub woof, and wether it’s on voice or music or TV.Its just trial and error.The sound quality is the same on all of them mind and the sub woof only has 4 settings and again there no difference anyway. The biggest let down though is the fact that when you set it up so that it’s controlled by the TV or sky remote ( so using the Arc or Optical audio cable) the mute button doesn’t work.All in all I’d say it’s not worth a penny, total waste of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, decent. My ancient sound bar finally gave up the ghost so I was forced to find something at short notice. I didn’t have the funds for the latest gadgets and am basically a technophobe so choosing an external sound system for my tv was daunting. The TV5 V2 got good overall reviews and was a british company so I plumped first this. So far so good. I like the fact that it’s a sound base so no messy additional sub woofer boxes cluttering up the floor. The sound is good (to my ears anyway) and the unit itself is smart and looks quality. Let down only by a really heavy, large remote which also has the kind of buttons that stick at an angle if you don’t push them straight down, and no real instructions. Took me a while to figure out the Bluetooth and the fact that in this setting, max volume was controlled my phone! Like I said, technophobe, but I got there and can confirm Iron Maiden sounds AMAZE from this unit. Overall, happy days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sound,struggled to set up, possibly the TV, Sound is good but does not always connect with the TV The remote control is huge for only 14 buttons, surely they could have designed something a lot neater

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good Brilliant bit of kit! Sound is great. So simple to set up, too (I'm not techy). Love that my TV remote controls the sound. Sits under my TV which is far more practical for my setup than a soundbar with a huge subwoofer. Overall highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous piece of kit from Cambridge Audio After many weeks of research I bought this the TV5 as a replacement for an AV receiver and separate 5:1 speakers. It’s a brilliant piece of kit and provides amazing sound. Very easy to set up and the difference in sound is immediately noticeable. The unit looks, feels and most definitely sounds, like quality kit and sits perfectly underneath our 49” TV. Brilliant service as always from Richer Sounds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound but a few niggles I bought the TV5 V2 a couple of weeks ago. The sound is a great improvement over the LG TV I have. The instructions are not very good (brief and unclear) and there is no display on the unit to show what sound mode (e.g. TV, Voice, etc.) you are using. Connections & set up needed a bit of research & a phone call to Richer Sounds in Brighton to confirm that my set up was correct. Very helpful & knowledgeable member of staff confirmed my set up was OK & provided guidance regarding the 'learning' feature - it was not required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound After much deliberation about replacing our trusted but old Panasonic 5.1 system, after reading the positive reviews and recommendations we opted for the Cambridge Audio TV5 V2. The parcel arrived earlier than expected which is always a good sign; form ordering to delivery it was seamless. The TV2 V2 is a solid well built soundbox yet when in place it looks rather sleek; I was a bit dubious of how it would handle my 42" TV sitting on top, but this bit of kit is robust and solid. Setting up was simplistic, 3 cables plug and play and away you go; child's play if I'm honest. The sound is fantastic; we tested each mode (trying not to upset the neighbours) and we can't fault the sound output. This unit is worth every penny, we have already recommended it to family and friends and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is thinking about updating their tv sound/experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference! I bought this a couple of weeks ago. Its a great unit. Sits beautifully under the TV. Auto turns on and off so dont really need the separate controller. Was super-easy to set up. Sound from my flatscreen TV now actually is audible...and fills the space beautifully. Would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality sound - excellent value Bought to replace a failed Denon soundbase (Richer Sounds support and extended warranty service was truly first rate, right in the middle of the pandemic). The Denon was great but wasn't good at drawing out speech from the audio. This is in a totally different class. Despite not trying to do Dolby Digital or DTS decoding, this does a much more convincing job of rendering the audio in each of it's 4 modes. Looking at the size of the subwoofers in the base (wish they had protected them with a grille as I was a bit nervous putting it under the TV on my own with lifting/sliding it into place) I was expecting it to be very bass-heavy, but it couldn't be further from it. The bass is meaty but not at all overpowering, and always remains very controlled. Sound is balanced and well distributed, and it sounds night and day better than the unit it replaced. Was expecting to need to use the different sound modes for different types of input, but honestly the TV mode is just fine for just about everything, and overally this is a brilliantly well built, thought out and executed product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the sound and Beautiful design After much deliberation about replacing my very cheap and awful 5.1 system with the Cambridge Audio TV5 V2. I decided to gamble and trust the online reviews. It arrived 3 days earlier than I expected so well done to Richersounds for those amazing online & delivery services and I was like a child at Xmas when I opened the huge box. Inside was the serious piece of equipment. Solid yet sleak. It was really easy to set up and link to my Samsung LED tv. I instantly fell in love as I could hear the crystal clear sounds coming through. I decided to put the avengers on so I could hear some cinema sounds. Their is a scene where the rain is pouring down and it felt like it was raining inside my house the sound was so sharp. I then linked my Apple Music via my iPhone to the unit via Bluetooth and first song up The beatles - A day in the life and whooooaaa the strings again I was completely blown away. This unit is worth every penny and I would recommend to anyone who is need of updating their tv sound. My only Criticism is a very minor one and its the fact you cannot see the volume level on screen but you know in some ways it helps you tune to your ears rather than your ocd (for those who cannot abide odd numbers). I will be recommending this to all my friends and family, well done :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TV5 V2 Has made a great improvement to the sound quality of my panasonic 50 inch TV, which sits neatly on the sound-base. Set up only takes a few minutes and your away! Bluetooth connection a plus. Just need a bigger sitting room to crank it up and get the full effect.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing soundbase (Sound bar). I have just started to use Richersounds and so far impressed. They delivered "On Time" and with a decent courier (Didnt cheapskate on the del costs) as some companies go with the "No so good" couriers however Richersounds kept the class and quality. The soundbase was exactly what we where looking for in that it wasnt complicated and had the quality sound we wanted, The base is adjustable as well. If you can imagine a speaker system or if you have ever wired your tv via your hi-fi well thats how this system sounds, I really couldnt understand how a device that aimed towards you could do this...But it does... I was going to buy the Bose 500 or the Bose 700 but after their reviews regarding customer service I went with Cambridge Audio. Two gripes I must honestly state thou! 1) Cambridge Audio "Claim" to be British Which they are, However all their systems are built/made in China and for me thats a bit misleading! 'Bring it back home guys' and do the right thing! 2) The remote on the system has too much space! its a long remote with few buttons so it does look like they cut corners when it came to the manufacturer of it. Apart from them two issues the system and overall experience with Richer Sounds was well err "Sound".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Improvement To TV Sound! I bought this to improve the sound quality of the SONY television. Easy to install and there is a noticeable improvement. I have tried the optical and HDMI connections but my ear cannot detect any difference. Likewise I find when switchimng the mode on the TV5 ther eis little change in the sound. Bluetooth works really well and the sound when playing music is excellent. The only downside is the TV5 does not switch off when the TV is off which means the light stays on - not good in the night when trying to sleep!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, simple to use, but... The sound is good and the setup was easy, although the optical cable is far too short (0.8m) if your TV is wall mounted, so I had to buy a longer one separately. The clips on the front grille were broken on one side but Richer Sounds got a replacement out quickly. The other problem was there was no obvious difference between any of the sound modes (TV, movie, music etc) and no obvious change when using the Sub+ and Sub- buttons. Richer Sounds got a replacement out to me without any hassle. It all seems fine now, and we are happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit. It looks as good as it sounds. This arrived a week ago. It took less than 10 mins to set up. Super easy. It connects itself when you switch the tv on and the Bluetooth connection adds another speaker to our living space. Winner all round!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic improvement on TV sound I bought the Cambridge TV5 V2 after reading the positive reviews on the Richer Sounds website. It has been a revelation in terms of upgrading my LG TV sound, and all connected in such a simple way via HMDi ARC. The settings are easy to use and it has improved the listening experience immensely. For the price point this is a great addition to any home and the bluetooth connection for music is excellent. I initially experienced lip sync issues and spoke with the Richer Sounds helpline, who were incredibly patient and helpful. Turns out my Sky Q box was causing the problems, although Richer would have offered a direct swop without question. This level of after sales support is rare and one of the reasons I would always suggest Richer Sounds to friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good, but..... Great delivery service from Richer Sounds, I rendered this online late on a Tuesday evening and it arrived early Thursday morning 2 days later. The sound quality is much better than through my Panasonic TV alone. My only complaints so far are that it seems to work with some streaming programmes on Netflix but not on others, which is weird, and I'll have to go and research a solution for that. That leads to my second complaint, which is that the user manual from Cambridge Audio is useless if not non-existent. Simply not good enough service by a manufacturer who is charging £199 for the product. Hence my deduction of 2 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound. It's a beast This soundbase is huge. Easily big enough to accommodate my 40" Samsung TV. Easy to set up and use. Remote is simple and reassuringly heavy. Had to dim the front led with tape, but be careful taking the front cover off as the lugs that attach to the front are a bit fragile, hence 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cambridge Audio TV5 V2 Clean lines , great sound Have had this a few weeks . Before we had a true surround sound but I wanted something simpler which still gave good quality sound. It looks great. It was even for me easy to set up. The sound is very good idea . Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sound sound Had for a week. Purchased because we could not distinguish mumbling dialogue and sound track saturated dialogue on the TV. Partly due to age related hearing loss and partly because of the poor speakers on the TV (32inch Sony Bravia). The improvement is excellent. Very little need to adjust the TV5V2. The movie, TV, music, voice equalisers all produce excellent sound. Often we just leave the movie setting on. Connected the unit to the tv using the HDMI/ARC method. Briefly used the optical cable and this worked well except the TV speakers were still operating and that slightly confused the sound. The pre purchase telesales conversation and advice was very helpful and fair-minded. Very pleased.
