Canton DM75


Exclusive: Canton's jumbo TV soundbase delivers stunning sound

Amazing sense of scale ; Crystal clear detail and powerful bass ; Superb build quality and discreet design

No HDMI ports ; Expensive ; Surround mode doesn’t add much

Canton consolidates the success of the dazzling DM50 with a larger soundbase that delivers similarly polished and powerful sound quality – but you’ll need deep pockets to own one and there are no HDMIs.

Big, open soundfield ; Balanced and insightful ; Expressive and exciting ; Weighty bass ; Smart design

Lacks the sonic solidity of some rivals ; Treble can verge on brightness at volume ; No HDMIs

Best soundbase £300+, Awards 2014. This is still a superb soundbase, but new rivals sound more solid and assertive

Canton DM 75 soundbase review


Canton's DM 50, reviewed last year, is perhaps best used with TVs around the 48in mark; the step-up DM 75 on test here supports screens up to 60in (or up to 40kg in weight). Bigger screens need a bigger sound and the DM 75's roomier cabinet should...

Outstanding detail and bass punch; smooth, composed sound; superb build quality; informative front display panel

No HDMI connectivity; surround mode adds little; expensive compared to some rivals

The Canton DM 75 is a table-top sound base, designed as an alternative to the more traditional sound bar. It's picked up accolades for its large sound and robust build quality. But did that come through in our tough tests? We sent it to the lab to see...

Great powerfull sound


I bought this speaker couple of weeks ago. It's a simple, elegant solution that brings a lot of sound to the table. The sound is good and clear. It's really powerful, it really doesn't need additional subwoofer! (I tested it with and without one)....

Excellent sound base


Brilliant piece of kit, we have one in the living room. My son has now bought one for himself for his bedroom. Excellent sound, remote control is simple to use and feels really good quality. Great features.

Easy setup


Still getting used to using this, but so far so good. I have a small hearing loss and I struggle to hear speech sometimes. It's as if everyone is mumbling. The canton makes a big difference in this respect

Well built, looks good, sounds good


Unit was esay to install and sounds great. I discovered that my TV only sends 2ch PCM sound via the optical output, to get the full sound it was necessary to bypass tv and link straight to DVD player (I used coax) and PVR (optical). Bluetooth from my...
