Canton DM - FAQ


How does the Canton soundbase connect to a TV?
You can connect a Canton soundbase to most flatscreen TVs with just one simple connection. Most flatscreen TVs have an optical audio output, which can be used with the supplied cable. This will carry the audio of whatever you’re watching on TV, to the Canton soudbase for a vastly improved audio performance.

What if my TV doesn’t have an optical output?
There is also a coaxial digital input and RCA analogue input available.

Apart from films, what else can the soundbase be used for?
The soundbase will enhance all the audio of normal TV programmes, catch up TV, films, gaming and anything else you can connect to your TV.

Do I have to use an additional remote control to change the volume on the soundbase?
The soundbase can learn the remote codes of an existing TV remote. Once set up, the tv’s own remote will control the volume of the soundbase so only one remote will be needed.

Do different devices (such as a satellite boxes, BluRay etc) need to each be connected to the Canton soundbase?
