3 Reasons For for Choosing the Canton DM 75

Subwoofer Included

The Canton DM 75 has a subwoofer included (as do the Razer Leviathan, the Sony HTCT790 and the Yamaha YSP-1600), but the QFX SBASE2000 does not have this feature. More ...

Whether the soundbar includes a subwoofer, which is a loudspeaker for low frequencies (bass sounds).

A subwoofer boosts the bass quality of the soundbar, allowing it to have far more powerful bass than would otherwise be possible.

Handheld Remote Control

The Canton DM 75 has a handheld remote control, and so do the Sony HTCT790 and the Yamaha YSP-1600, but the QFX SBASE2000 and the Razer Leviathan do not. More ...

'Handheld Remote Control' denotes whether the soundbar comes with a remote to control the device from afar.

A remote control makes it far easier and more convenient to use the soundbar - you can turn it on/off and tweak the volume without having to get up and walk across the room!

Newer by 17 Months

The Canton DM 75 was released three years ago, but the QFX SBASE2000 was released five years ago, the Razer Leviathan was released six years ago, the Sony HTCT790 was released five years ago and the Yamaha YSP-1600 was released five years ago

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canton DM 75

Only 2.1 Channels Channels

The Canton DM 75 is 2.1 channels channels, and so do the Razer Leviathan and the Sony HTCT790, which is 3 times as less audio output channels as the Yamaha YSP-1600 (5.1 channels). More ...

'Audio Output' denotes the number of individual channels for the soundbar to use. Specific sounds and parts of the screen are assigned to individual channels, allowing the soundbar to simulate surround sound and create a deeper audio depth.

More channels mean that the sound will be more spread across the channels, leading to a richer surround sound 'effect'.

40% Smaller Power

The Canton DM 75 is a 200W soundbar. That's 160W bigger than the QFX SBASE2000 (40W), 140W bigger than the Razer Leviathan (60W), 130W smaller than the Sony HTCT790 (330W) and 120W bigger than the Yamaha YSP-1600 (80W). More ...

'Power' denotes how powerful the soundbar is, measures in watts.

Generally speaking, the higher the power level of the soundbar, the louder the maximum volume, and the better the sound quality will be.

Not Wall Mountable

The Canton DM 75 is not wall mountable, but the QFX SBASE2000, the Razer Leviathan, the Sony HTCT790 and the Yamaha YSP-1600 are. More ...

'Wall Mountable' denotes whether the soundbar can be mounted on a wall, or whether it has to rest on the floor or on a stand.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canton DM 75 has received a Kagoo Score of 59, but the QFX SBASE2000 scored 65, the Razer Leviathan scored 68, the Sony HTCT790 scored 60 and the Yamaha YSP-1600 scored 60.

More Expensive by $661

The Canton DM 75 is $661 more expensive than the QFX SBASE2000, $601 more expensive than the Razer Leviathan and $401 more expensive than the Sony HTCT790.

Not As Many Stockists

The Canton DM 75 is only stocked by 1 seller, however the Razer Leviathan is stocked by 3 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this soundbar.
Worse Brand

Canton soundbars have an average rating of only 56.6%, however QFX has an average rating of 58.8%, Sony has an average rating of 64.4% and Yamaha has an average rating of 65.9%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the DM 75 in the US is $721.40 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
