Canton DM 55 Soundbase (Glass Top)
Turbocharged successor to Canton's all conquering DM 50 !

Take German manufacturer Canton's amazing DM 50 (the most highly reviewed soundbase of all time), give it improved circuitry for even better dialogue handling / Bluetooth reception, plus a lower price - and you've got yourself the fantastic new DM 55 !

The DM55 is not a soundbar -  it is a soundbase. A soundbar sits in front of your TV, whereas your TV stands directly on top of a soundbase. That seemingly subtle difference is actually highly significant, because the fact that a soundbar has to be designed to be able to sit in front of a TV severely limits its front to back depth, as well as its height - which in turn limits the size of the speaker enclosures and the complexity of the electronics that can be housed within it. A soundbase has no such restrictions, so its speaker enclosures can be much bigger, resulting in a far deeper, richer sound. A soundbase also looks brilliant and doesn't require any rackspace (because your TV sits directly on top of it).

If the truth be known, Canton's new DM55 is simply a fine tuned version of the highly successful outgoing DM50 - in fact, with the exception of a couple of internal circuitry tweaks, the two models are virtually identical. Not a bad thing, when you remember that the DM50 was the most critically acclaimed soundbase ever, picking up rave reviews from all around the world, including What Hi-Fi, Trusted Reviews and Amazon. The reason for all that praise was that the DM50 was smaller (only 69mm high x 545mm wide) better made and better sounding than its rivals. It had 200 watts of amplification, twin downward firing bass drivers, twin 2-inch midrange drivers and twin 19mm soft-dome tweeters. The new DM55 shares all these features, including the DM50s three way driver configuration which produces a clarity of midrange and a tightness of bass that other soundbars / soundbases can only dream of. Performance on film / music is simply outstanding and the Bluetooth apt-X music streaming is superb - this unit is good enough to be a Hi-Fi in its own right, sounding much better than many mini systems !

It's easy to use, too - simply connect the DM55 to your flat-screen TV, using a single digital cable, and enjoy powerful, dynamic audio from your favourite TV shows, movies, games and music. It has independent bass and treble controls, so that you can perfectly tune the sound to your taste and it will even learn your TV remote's volume control, for absolute ease of use. All input selection / volume control levels etc are shown on a rather neat blue display which is visible through the DM55's grille. On top of that, you can also stream music from your smartphone / tablet wirelessly to the soundbase in CD quality sound, via Bluetooth apt-X. Engineered to hold up to 40kg, the DM55 fits perfectly under most TV's up to 50 inch, looks great and sounds absolutely sensational.

The DM50 won all of the awards shown below - the new DM55 is even better (and has a lower SRP !)
