Canton DM100


The DM100 is the most recent addition to Canton's lauded soundbase range, joining the DM55 (which replaces the Canton DM50) and a new glass-topped version of the Canton DM75. As the largest of the trio, the DM100 is designed for bigger rooms and TVs,...

Canton DM100 review


A big soundbase with big sound, this Canton will give even the largest TV an audio boost...

Fluid, expressive dynamics ; Clear and insightful ; Deep, taut bass ; aptX Bluetooth

Size won’t suit all ; Treble can edge on brightness at times

If your TV’s impractical size has put you off investing in a soundbase, the talented DM100 may well change that

Canton DM100 review


All soundbases pretend they're ready for the task of doubling up as a plinth for your flatscreen TV, yet some tend to be quite narrow, making them inelegant – and sometimes impractical – partners for larger-sized screens. The introduction of Canton's...

Wide enough for larger screens; straightforward to use; accomplished, engaging performance

Bass can lack control; remote not backlit

Just Right...Solid...


Wanted everything in one package. This is solidly built which I think provides a great platform for quality sound. Looks good. Easy to install and set up. One annoyance is blue display which we all find difficult to read.

Does exactly what the major reviews say.


I replaced a Cambridge Audio Minx soundbar with the Canton. Nothing wrong with the Minx, which I must admit was good value for money, but the Canton delivers far more versatility and depth. The bass is especially good - I guess the room characteristics...
