About Cambridge Audio TV5 V2 Soundbase
No matter what TV you have, where you store your content or what your preference in sound settings, you can be confident that the TV5 v2 will deliver an outstanding performance. The TV5 V2 has been engineered for exciting bass and the 4th generation BMR drivers deliver a detailed midrange and crisp treble. The BMR driver’s ensure that wherever you are in the room, you still get the same great audio experience. The discreet, narrow profile soundbar, equipped with their own patented BMR speaker technology (found in their very best hi-fi speakers) distributes mid-tones and detail perfectly, wherever you are in the room. Patented BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) speaker drivers deliver a wider, more room-filling sound than similarly-sized traditional speakers making it good for an entry-level music and movies TV system. For added bass, a downwards-firing subwoofer with two drivers negates the need for a separate subwoofer, with the overall result a clean, punchy sound from TV, movies and music.
Powerful Bass: In terms of bass power and dynamics, the TV5 V2 offers a substantial upgrade over the TV2. With two rather than one subwoofer unit, the TV5 V2 has twice the power. In addition, the internal cabinet area is larger and there are twin bass output ports, which not only increases the TV5 V2's volume potential, but also makes it a more moving experience for films and music. Bass goes lower for longer and the dynamic response is enhanced for those all-important 'goose bump' moments!
Selectable Sound Modes And Bass Adjustment: The perfect setting for movies isn't usually the same for music, which is why the Cambridge TV5 V2 comes with four EQ modes. Whatever the content, the Cambridge TV5 V2 offers an optimum mode. 'Film' is designed to get the best from movies and offers a powerful and dynamic sound. 'Music' gives enhanced stereo performance, perfect for music via Bluetooth or watching music videos. 'TV' offers a well-balanced sound that's ideal for most TV programmes. Finally, 'Voice' mode improves clarity and is ideal for those hard of hearing or sitting further back from the speaker. Once you've chosen the best setting simply dial up or down the bass to suit. The four adjustable EQ modes are all selectable from the remote as follows:
- TV Mode: This mode enhances the sounds found in your favourite TV shows
- Music Mode: This mode enhances stereo music and music videos for amazing playback
- Film Mode: It will enhance dialogue, sound and special effects, for incredible cinematic sound
- Voice Mode: This means important dialogue is delivered in perfect clarity
Bluetooth For Music Streaming: In addition to making your TV sound great, the TV5 V2 also offers effortless Bluetooth music streaming. You can connect up just about any smartphone, tablet, laptop, Mac or PC. Simply pair your device and stream music from your Bluetooth-equipped device. Stream your music library or use a music streaming service such as Spotify, Deezer or the iPlayer Radio and as the Cambridge TV5 V2 supports aptX Bluetooth, it's delivered in near CD quality.
ARC: Cambridge Audio engineers have also included ARC technology on the HDMI output, meaning TV audio can be sent back through the TV5 V2 as well, providing ultimate flexibility with just one connection. If your TV doesn’t support ARC HDMI, TV5 V2 also has an optical digital input and an AUX-in analogue input, so literally any TV or source can be connected.
Infra-Red Remote Control: The TV5 V2 learns from your existing TV remote, reacting to your TVs remote volume commands, so once installed you can completely forget about having to control the TV5 V2. Auto power on and off kicks in when TV5 V2 isn’t needed and when you’re ready to go, the system reboots almost instantly.
Plug And Play: Using the TV5 V2 is easy. Simply connect your TV by a HDMI cable (sold separately), Optical (Toslink) cable which is included or RCA cables (sold separately) and you're ready to go. These will also accept a second source, such as CD/DVD/Blu-ray player. The simple remote control offers all the basics, but the TV5 V2 should also support your existing TV remote. The sensor in the TV5 V2 is designed to accept signals and learn volume commands from most TV and cable TV remotes and also commands quick pairing with your Bluetooth device, eight of which can be matched to the sound base.
