This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Company based in York, British product. You may be able to get it for £475 with 5.25% Topcashback.

Some reviews on Amazon suggested 5% off if you sign for the newsletter. Excellent reviews regarding their customer service. This system was £699 not long ago. Option to pay later or in instalments with Klarna (I have never used this, so I do not know how it works).

The company claims this is the world’s only true wireless DA system, no audio cables needed at all. Some reviews suggested the bass is not great, Damson completed an update in this matter in Oct 2018. Yes, may not be a match for Samsung K/N950, but it is half the price and has surround speakers.

If you want more speakers you can find these on Damson’s website, the system connects up to 16 speakers. Plug and play, S-Cubes speakers powered or on battery.

Bluetooth. Compatible with Amazon Fire TV, Neflix, Xbox, Sky, Virgin, Apple TV, etc

What a pile of rubbish, wireless speakers my ****. It's easier to run …What a pile of rubbish, wireless speakers my ****. It's easier to run speaker cables under the carpet to the satellite speakers. Than to run either an extension cable, or install electricity sockets where you want the speakers.You don't need surround sound all the time, rechargeable rear speakers should be easy for companies to build.


You can carry the speakers with you in another room and can listen to music.
For me this is a good deal exactly because of the wireless speakers. I do not have carpet, I've got laminate flooring. I've got small children, so I do not have to keep an eye on them not to pull cables.
I do not need to instal sockets where the speakers are, as I can charge them somewhere else. Also, due to the layout of my room, if I run an extension cable, it will be from behind the sofa. All the cables will be behind the sofa, not visible at all.

Fair enough if the deal is not for you, for me the only reason I did not get a home cinema before was because I do not want cables around. I am sure a wired system is better, but I do not like bulky systems and cables. Yes, we do not need surround speakers all the time, if this is the case I wonder why there are 7.1 systems on the market and why companies invest money and waste time to produce such things. I am sure they know better about the market.

Also, we have to appreciate this is a British system and perhaps we should encourage innovation.

These are rechargeable rear speakers.
Please note, whilst I like these speakers, there were a few things that are potential deal breakers (and why these are my portable theatre speakers and not my main AV ones)
1st is : no HDMI CEC
2nd: No auto switching sources
3rd: can't control with Logitech Harmony remote
4th: No Equaliser / app for tweaking sound
5th: Atmos speaker when clicked in place makes the speaker about 11cm high, so can obscure your TV if it's on a stand and quite low profile

Good points are,
Sound is very good
Very portable and easy to set up
Surrounds are good on their own as a portable Bluetooth system
Speakers are small and easy to pack in a bag. Seriously the main speaker is TINY!
It's Atmos, when set up right, sound wonderful.

Well put. Not everyone has the ease of having permanent speakers, or the need to, especially for rears. Being able to set them up quickly and easily (I'm sure) for a movie you want full surround and Dolby Atmos in, then put them away again in seconds is convenience at the highest level. Plus the extra options to create multi room audio etc. with them look great.
Also 4K video pass through, seems like a great deal to me. Would love to hear them but I read some extremeley positive and recent Amazon reviews which speak volumes heat from me!

I've got these speakers, very good for my outdoor projector setup. Nice small speakers that pack decent sound. Recommended. Couple of minor items stopped them being my main AV room speakers, but for a quick portable set up, these are great.
would you have to have speaker brackets or shelfs in the right places to put the speakers back in the correct position for atmos or every time you take a speaker to another room you would need to run a calibration if this has a calibration tool built in. Looks like a good system for those wanting wireless speakers but personally not right for me.
i presume you do not get an atmos effect outside?

How long does the charge last.. Or another way.. How many average 2 hour films before charging? Also how long to charge from flat. Thanks

Only 3 hdmi sockets is s bit of a bummer. I need at least 5
but is the sound any good?

I use my 3.5m cantilever umbrella as a "roof" to direct the sound down to me, not great but sort of works.

Definitely lasts a film or two. Never really tested how long. They can charge whilst being used also, so if they do cut out, I just run a cable to them and can carry on watching. They flash red/blue whilst charging, never really timed the recharge time sorry!

Damson claims the charge lasts min 8 hours of use. Don't know how long it takes to get fully charged, but you can charge them while in use as well.

I have a Sonos set up in my front room, there's already sockets in every corner so I didn't need to do anything. Sounds like it just doesn't suit your needs perhaps? I had a wired set up before and never thought the wires for rears were that bad anyways if you have carpet to hide them under

The only 2 reasons stopping me to get this system were:
The price - now getting closer to what I was willing to pay for it
Dolby Atmos speaker too high, obscuring the TV. I was thinking to have the speaker on the wall, above the TV, do you think the sound will be affected? My TV stand is quite low, so the soundbar will only be about 30 cm above ears level if I put it above the TV. Thanks!

Ok, I've re-read the description. They are chargeable, that should be a key point on a wireless set of speakers. Why that is not mentioned in the main description, is beyond me.

By the way, I've not voted hot or cold. I vote on the price for that item. If I don't like it, I might make a comment but not vote.

In description: surround speakers powered or on battery.

This is not for everybody, some people like it, some not. I prefer to compromise on sound but to have my place tidy. For me, it is in between this one and Samsung. Samsung way too expensive. The other and preferred option is from Vizio, cheaper than this one, but I can only find it in the US, with custom charges, VAT and postage will be too expensive.

Yes, the price may be an issue, but this was £1,000 initially and about £700 usually. This is the first time I found them at under £500 and I kept an eye on them since 6 months ago.

The cheapest Dolby Atmos System I found was a combination of Onkyo/Denon/Yamaha receivers and Onkyo/Yamaha speakers. All wired and at about £600 when on sale, otherwise more expensive. Apart from this one, I do not think you can get a DA System for under £500, so to me, the wireless function is a bonus. You can find kind of wireless systems (LG, Samsung) on sale for about £250 but without Dolby Atmos.

Wow speakers are actually wireless. It's a first.
Interesting to know this type of speaker is available.. I'm guessing the usage time is based on the gain you drive the amplifier inside them.
Anyone else getting the Klarna payment option isn’t available?
Is there any lag...?

Should be ok, main thing is the Atmos speaker bounces sound off your ceiling at an angle so may depend how far back you sit from the tv
My 2 cents... Personally I think that this is over priced for a surround sound setup that isn't true surround sound. That said I can see the appeal, wireless is a massive plus and plug and play makes setup easy. If you just want a cheap surround sound setup then a wired solution would be loads cheaper for a similar performance. This Yamaha system will do a better job with the surround sound and at £349 offers excellent value:

I am waiting for TVs to build in wireless surround sound that you can use bluetooth speakers to deliver.
Hopefully this will be soon.

The main point of this system is Dolby Atmos, not the wireless function or plug and play! The surround sound is bounced off the ceiling. To suggest that Dolby Atmos is not surround sound is an understatement.There are other decent systems cheaper than the one you posted and are kind of wireless, not that the one you suggested is bad, but this is a different league. This one for £199 is just an example, but it does not have Dolby Atmos, with DA you are looking at £700+:

I agree with this. I would love Damson to offer me this for free for a 5 star review:). I can't comment how genuine the reviews are, but I can see on Amazon they answered to any single review, regardless if it was positive or negative. I also read some articles mentioning how good their CS is, but again, this can be subjective.
Is it me or does this only have two HDMI inputs and one output? Only having two inputs in a traditional surround system was a problem, are things different now I.e. can I pass everything through everything and therefore not have to worry? E.g. I could have four slots on my TV, using three for additional stuff to passback to the surround. Or is it just two slots?
