Canton DM55


The DM55 is the successor to Canton's superb DM50 soundbase, which scooped our award for Best Soundbar back in 2014. This new version throws in some fresh features and improved sound quality, all of which is likely to consolidate the German brand's...

Canton DM 55 review


Canton continues its record of building excellent-sounding, easy to use soundbases...

Rich, expansive sound Deep, punchy bass Loads of detail Excellent build and finish Easy to use

Some may want HDMI inputs

If you’re after a soundbase that both looks good and performs brilliantly, this Canton DM 55 is definitely one you need to audition. It’s lovely to use, it looks classier than its price tag would suggest, and the sound quality is the best of its kind....

Brilliant Product


I originally bought a Bose Solo 5 which was OK. However, you had to use the Bose remote for volume and mute. I already have too many remotes in my life! The DM55 can be programmed to accept any remote. I have set it up to work with my 6 year old Sony...

Canton DM55


Easy to connect with optical cable

Bluetooth is great but if you forget you have it on, then it will pick up any device and automatically play the sound from that device even if watching TV. (Solution:- switch off bluetooth)

Brilliant allround sound / music player


Absolutely refreshed my TV with awesome sound, DVD playing is like being at the cinema, internet radio and bluetoothing from both my vinyl turntable and ipad. Never realised it would be so multi-use and produce such great quality sound. On top of that...
