Canton DM50 soundbase @ Amazon.de warehouse £118.29!!!!

Found 29th May 2015
(Saving well in excess of £130+ off the BEST price in the UK!)

This soundbase has won a plethora of awards from several review websites, including WhatHiFi and Trusted Reviews.
whathifi.com/can…iew
trustedreviews.com/can…iew

The original RRP of this product is around the £400 mark. However, it is on special promotion at RicherSounds for £249.95 (one per customer/household). However, there's a way that this can be purchased ridiculously cheap from our "friends" across the border (Germany). ;-)

Amazon.de warehouse deals have this soundbase going for 153.59 euros (£110.24!!!) in a "good" condition. If you'd like a "very good" condition where the actual soundbase is factory sealed, but the packaging is damaged, this is available for a mere 8.63 (£6.20) more at 162.22 euros (£116.51)!!!

With delivery costing 9.83 euros (=£7.06), this is IMO a fantastic bargain!!!

Saving well in excess of £130+ off the BEST price in the UK!

P.S - For those to looking to buying brand new, it's still cheaper purchasing from Amazon.de, £50 cheaper!

Bizarre that average rating on German site is 3.6 vs 4.5 on UK.

Having read the reviews, it seems that the initial batch was defective. Most, if not all, the 1 star reviews seem to be complaining about a failure of the unit within 2 months. It's been said though, however, that Canton fixed/resolved the issue in the following batch(es).

Everyone is complaining about a failure within 2 months. It's been said that Canton updated the model, indicating that the specific detective issue has been resolved.


These are likely to be the defective first batch returns though, if they are, the returns will need to be shipped back to Germany AFAIK

Well, if these were the defective first batch, it'd be very unlike Amazon to be re-selling them? And yes, you're right, returns would have to be shipped back to Germany (which would be paid for by Amazon - they'll refund the return costs). However, I believe we should be able to make sure of Canton warranty to have them repaired/replaced, should an issue arise?

wow, what a bargain.. ordered! Came in at around £128 including postage though for the sealed item//damaged packaging option.

Thanks, ordered.
Brilliant reviews when priced at £400.

tempted to replace massive soundbar i have

got used very good delivered for £123.41, massive bargain, thank you.

between this and the rs220s through the week I've got some decent upgrades for the bedroom at a fraction of the retail cost, pity the wife doesn't see it like that :-)

Do I need to make a new account for amazon.de ?
It's ok worked it out.

Good find at a great price. To save folk with google translate this is the descriptor.
'Used - very good. Product can be delivered repackaged . Front of the chassis has small blemishes.'
If you can cope with those small blemishes, then bring on a half price deal.
Just dont forget to get your plug adaptor before it arrives!

And I couldn't resist the HUKD 'gamble' - both with the very good status and foreign retailer and the wife not chopping them off for 'unnecessary' spending. So item bought. £125 in total. The problem batch appears to have been 12-18 months ago. Well if it we do have any issues then we'll have some support between us for how to send it back hassle free!

Thanks for sharing and heat added.

Wow, there were several of these available when I posted the deal. Now there's just the single remaining! Get in fast, as this is the last one!

Sorry mate to dissapoint you but amazon is well known of sending return units back to the customers. Thats why on so many products you can find same bad reviews. And i know that from my own experience with amazon

Good deal but bit of a gamble. Could be refurbs, don't fancy dealing with german Amazon returns department and for that reason I'm out.

Bloody hell, what a deal! Can't resist thanks OP

All gone now..at the reduced price

Cheapest seems to be @ €269 now. Anyone else have the same issue?

Sorry guys / gals - got the last one

Ahhhhh gutted ! Enjoy

No Hdmi? Wtf? Don't see how I could have used this without changing everything about my setup up

For those who missed out on this deal (and what a deal, I must say!), Richer Sounds are selling the Tannoy Basestation One for £129.95.

It's a bit bigger (especially height-wise), but if you can live with that Trusted Reviews said it was the only soundbase that could match the Canton for sound quality (they gave it 10 out of 10 for sound quality when reviewed at £349), and its made by a British company to boot

Thanks for this, no doubt this will be useful to many!

This is by far the BEST sound bar I've ever used. I also bought mine from Amazon.de warehouse deals. But unfortunately, one morning it refused to switch on. Had to send it back to Germany. Worth another try anyway

Missed it but heat given for those who got one.

Missed out on this one

Is this likely to come back on at this sort of price?
Well done to those who got one!

Was it pretty easy to go through the returns process?

Excellent sound but boy it's ugly

Got one last night thanks! Hope it's as good as the reviews suggest. I've just bought a Panasonic refurb off eBay (last week) for £109 so looks like I'll have to sell that one!

Would one of these work well as a bluetooth hifi speaker using a music streamer?

Mine is now out for delivery, with a UPS tracking number.

Will do. UPS is saying it has left Frankfurt and is scheduled to be with me by the end of Wednesday. Good news on the cables; wasn't sure if that would be the case given it is a Warehouse deal.

Thanks! and thanks OP.

I ordered one in the end, costing a little more (around £138) for a white one.

Do we know what the warranty is on these?
I had a search around and apparently Amazon warehouse UK offers 1 year, wasn't sure if that was the same for amazon.de.

No, when I ordered there was only the one postage option.

Hi, What is your delivery date, just curious as mine has been lying in perfume city the last few days?

Edited by: "Springerbhoy" 2nd Jun 2015

It is as it was in the earlier post - due by close of play tomorrow. But now it is sitting in Tamworth, as opposed to Frankfurt as it was this morning. It sees the world more than I do.

I got an e-mail on Monday with the link to the tracking information.
