"A sterling soundbase that builds on the Minx TV's success with a few design and feature upgrades."'What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision' - Awards 2014.

A massive upgrade for your TV's sound

Using twin BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drive units, the Cambridge TV2 gives pinpoint accuracy and is bursting with detail, even at high volume. BMR technology combines the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers, so means that the TV2 is truly dynamic and won't turn harsh when the music or film 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 - just as you'd expect from Cambridge Audio, masters of sound.

Bluetooth music streaming
In addition to making your TV sound great, the TV2 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 supports aptX Bluetooth, it's delivered in near CD quality.

Selectable sound modes
Whatever you listen to, the Cambridge TV2 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 - and certainly likely to be a great improvement upon your standard TV speakers. Finally, 'Voice' mode improves clarity and is ideal for those hard of hearing or sitting further back from the speaker.

Simple to use
Using the TV2 is easy. Simply connect your TV by optical digital, 3.5mm or RCA phono sockets and you're ready to go. These will also accept a second source, such as CD or DVD player. The simple remote control offers all the basics, but the TV2 should also support your existing TV remote. The sensor in the TV2 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.

Give your music and TV the lease of life they deserve, with the Cambridge TV2

CAMBRIDGE AUDIO TV2 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 206.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from quality product - good sound the audio from this soundbase is 110% better than the hollow sound produced from the t.v. Good quality sound and nice looking piece of kit. Only downside is the connectivity to the t.v - as no hdmi then I have to put my Panasonic t.v. into 'headphone mode' (to turn off t.v. speakers) as unable to put the t.v. into 'home cinema' mode as no hdmi.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Purchased a couple of months ago and the unit has suffered from intermittent cracking noise since then. I have been back to Richer Sounds twice for sound testing but claim not to find a fault and told it could be digital interference. However i was told the audio input socket suffers from a common fault. Second time round given a different audio lead which although has reduced the problem a little bit it is still happening just a little less frequently. I have not been offered an exchange or the option to return and buy a different make/model of speaker. Overall very disappointed in my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value I bought this unit to improve the sound quality of the standard TV, it has done this very well, with sound tracks, ambient sounds and most noticably with speech. I was also attracted to the bluetooth facility which allows me to play music from compuer, tablet etc. and lets me have an enjoyable mini (in size) sound system as well. The aux input allows the same sound system from DVD/CD player, so I have enough inputs. The TV2 is just the right size for the application. Its looks could be described as plain-or unobtrusive depending on ones taste! Sound quality, overall is very good for its size etc, it has plenty of detail and clarity, even manages opera ok. Bass is good but not too overpowering as some sound bases, which seem to 'hype' rather than be accurate. Overall I'm very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made product Improved sound, would have liked written present some confusion between TV remote and Cambridge remote,. supplied with a single stereo audio cable but required two single cables(since purchased) Excellent packing and delivered in20 hours from placing order!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive sound An excellent sound at a very reasonable price. No distortion of sound and the equipment is more than adequate for an average sized room. A great sound when playing CDs through the DV player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent way to upgrade your TV Speakers Bought a 46 in Sony TV and although the sound was ok it just didn't match the excellent picture so looked at ways to upgrade the speakers. As I have young children the option of a soundbar and subwoofer wasn't really a practical option. I researched a handful of soundbases and the Cambridge Audio TV2 was certainly up their with the best of them. Its just an awesome bit of kit! Comes complete with a optical cable and just so simply to set up. The sound quality is excellent and the bass is just perfect at bringing movies and music to life. If you are looking for a simple way to upgrade your TV speakers without the fuss of a full 5.1 surround system and may not have the right set up for a soundbar and subwoofer then its definitely worth considering. The guys at richersounds where very helpful and their service was great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sound buy I was looking for a low cost way to improve the sound quality from a medium size (about 36 inch Samsung) TV. The picture is excellent, but the sound rather thin. This base delivers the goods. Exceptionally easy to set up. Comes with its own fibre optic lead, so just plug and play. Integrated electronics in the handset means it will even work with just one handset for the base and TV.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from modest outlay for very modest return Hugely disappointing – there is nothing to recommend this piece of equipment. The remote control seems to choose for itself when to operate; the mute button lowers but seldom properly cuts out sound; the four controls labelled Film, TV, Voice and Music appear to be purely cosmetic. Certainly they make no difference to the quality or tone of the sound which is in any event markedly inferior to that produced by our LG tv. Finally, and perhaps most irritatingly, the volume control lacks all subtlety, a single click increasing the sound from the barely audible to the annoyingly loud. I can think of nothing positive to say of this item.
