About this deal

There are up/down keys to cycle through the inputs and buttons for sound modes, tone controls and Bluetooth pairing. As others have reported the exact same fault, there is evidently an inherent fault with this product. This gives the DM55 optimum speech intelligibility, impressive spatial presence and powerful bass tones.

The TV sounds excellent, I'm not into films so can't comment on the full surround thing but everyday programme viewing is great, excellent vocal clarity and a lovely balanced sound across the (considerable) frequency range. The glass topped box looks very sleek and unlike the Playbar, comes with its own remote which is on the chunky side but well built. The TV companions (DM 100, DM 75, DM 55, DM 9, DM 900) can be controlled via their own remote controls or the television remote. The solid HDF cabinet houses a modern, 200 watt digital amplifier with integrated 2-way loudspeaker system and down-fire subwoofer. With the DM55, Canton has created yet another top-drawer audio solution, blending a big, room-filling sound with the sort of finesse and subtlety more associated with home cinema separates.With their wireless subwoofers and up to four integrated woofers, the compact systems for TVs ensure a solid bass foundation.

Excellent speakers that are a great improvement on the active speakers I previously had connected with the TV. Its power output, combined with its speaker configuration and adjustment options, provides a versatile audio experience. I find that the surround setting helps spread the sound a touch (mitigating the narrow sound field) without any muddiness. Because of redecorating plans, I've replaced my Tannoy Mercury V1 speakers that were either side of the fireplace with a Canton DM55 soundbase, situated in the corner of the room.

If you have to use the supplied remote, its chunky build and logical button layout make operation a pleasure. If you have other Sonos speakers, you can group them wirelessly with the Playbar for a multi-room experience. This is a fully functioned replacement remote control and is designed to perform all button operations of the original remote supplied with the CANTON DM 55 (excluding reprogrammable buttons). Voice mode helps you pick out dialogue amid all the booms and bangs and works particularly well when watching TV. Inspired by the world of exclusive furniture and fitted with an elegant glass surface, the new DM systems have an elegant, contemporary look and will form an eye-catching feature in any living room.

It is not the end of the world as after a few minutes I don't really notice the difference, but it is there.

There is also a control adjustment for any lip-sync issues encountered, but I have had none using my Samsung smart TV from a variety of sources. Canton says it has improved the sound of all the ‘bases and has added various audio modes to suit a range of preferences. Often, you have to do this more than once to get the unit to identify it is receiving a signal from the TV and actually remain on.

Everything is tested by our dedicated team of in-house reviewers in our custom-built test rooms in London, Reading and Bath. There are no HDMI connections, but if you already use your TV as a hub with DVD/BD, Games console, Set top box etc already HDMI connected to your TV, this means that all you need to do is plug in the Digital optical cable from the sound base to your TV, change your TV speaker from TV speaker to audio out/external speaker and that’s it – it literally takes just a couple of minutes out of the box to set up and play! It's made in Germany so that inspires some confidence, but then again VW diesel owners might raise a wry smile to that! I mean, if I have a old vinyl record player connected to an amplifier and I would listen music and audio movie from tv, what is better? Bluetooth pairing for both our phones is quick and stable, the sound quality with 192 kbps mp3 (haven't got aptx Bluetooth so can't comment) files is excellent.I've had it on long enough over the weekend for the burn-in to take place (according the hours in the manual anyway, it's mentioned in there) but not noticing any difference. Lightsaber fights are exhilarating, giving out a fierce crackle when the blades clash, but it doesn’t turn spiky when you crank up the volume.
