CANTON DM 75 : No regrets, good purchase.

Looks great, sounds great, but falls short on connection options. This unit produces amazing sound and looks great, just as a lot of the professional reviews say. It misses out on five stars from me though due to what i consider to be the glaring omission of at least one hdmi input. In fact i had to return the unit for this reason as i discovered my panasonic plasma tv does not output dolby digital/dts from the optical out (which is not uncommon i have since found out). I then had to connect all my av peripherals to the unit via optical (ps3), coaxial (sky+hd) and the analog connectors (the tv itself). I (and my wife) then found it a major hassle to keep switching the tv’s input and the canton’s input when i wanted to change devices. In the end it just felt like integrating this unit in to my setup was a major hassle and i couldn’t imagine my patience improving with the connection issues in the long term. Come on canton, it’s 2014, please release a dm 75 equivalent soundbase with hdmi connections (3 in, 1 out with arc preferably) and the ability to decode dts (e. Someone like myself would be glad to pay another £50-£100 pounds on top of the current price to have these features and it would easily be the market leading product given its already impressive performance.

The product was really easy to install and was up an running within a few minutes with an amazing sound. Flicking between the tv speakers and this canton illustrated an unbelievable contrast. The bass settings also proved to improve the sound considerably. From playing with the settings i also discovered i was able to sync my tv remote to operate this speaker. All in all an excellent system with a very simple setup and intuitive remote control. Bluetooth function proved very useful for music and when watching tv on my ipad.

Comments from buyers

“Tips for getting the sound base working correctly, 5 start product., Impressive Sound from Small Box”

Impressive sound from small box. My first day of using the dm 75 (after running it in for about 8-10 hours) i was very disappointed. Like a few of the dm 50 reviews dialogue and mid range from this unit was so muddied. Bass performance however was very impressive — you really don’t need a subwoofer with this. That was part of the problem the bass was massively overpowering everything. Perhaps because the wooden tv unit it was on was extending it?. I tried the drc setting, tried the stereo/surround settings, tried pre-set eq settings. Same result, muddied mid range.

Brilliant sound stage, very detailed sound, i own the dm 100 just a little longer. Much better than currys rubbish.
