Canton’s latest soundbases – the DM76 and DM101 – have now arrived in the UK. The DM76 features a 200W amplifier that drives a two-way stereo loudspeaker array, comprising a pair of 50mm midrange drivers and two 19mm fabric-dome tweeters. A downward-firing subwoofer section adds four 100mm bass drivers
The DM101 is larger still, measuring 100 x 7.1 x 33cm.
It also incorporates a 200W amplifier but increases the number of 50mm midrange drivers from two to four – two per channel.
The complement of tweeters and downward-firing bass drivers is the same as in the DM76.
You can choose between 2.1 stereo and virtual surround modes – including a surround mode specifically for music – with decoding for Dolby Digital and DTS TruSurround.
Bass, midrange and treble controls are featured.
Additional settings include a Voice Mode that emphasises speech, a Hotel Mode that allows the maximum volume level to be restricted and Lip-Sync technology.
The DM76 and DM101 are designed to be simple to set up and use, with one signal cable from the TV and another for power.
Coaxial and optical digital inputs are provided, together with an RCA analogue input. Bluetooth with aptX support are also included.
There is also an output to enable connection of an external subwoofer.
A dedicated remote handset is also included – plus automatic on/off switching in line with the TV, a sleep timer and a power-saving Eco Mode.
The main cabinet is fashioned from reinforced HDF, specified to support up to 40kg.
Both models are available now in a choice of black or silver. Prices? The DM76 is £449 and the DM101 is £549.
