NEWS: Canton Smart Soundbar 10 adds Dolby Atmos

No DTS X and no eARC. unless these can be added by firmware I feel this might be a missed opportunity, I hope I'm wrong as everything else about it looks perfect on paper and well priced against the samsung q90r/q80r.

Very odd decision tho not to add DTS X when you go to the trouble of adding upward firing speakers.

Yamaha are over due, for a flagship soundbar update, their YSP-5600 has 3 HDMI ports, but only 1 is HDCP 2.2

3 hdmi inputs though, why can't Samsung manage that?

I'm curious, my Yamaha ysp2700 is aging :rotfl:
I used to have a Yamaha YSP 2500 soundbar before i went the AVR 5.1.2 rout and it was a great soundbar with 3 HDMI input which a lot of the new expensive Dolby Atmos soundbars don`t have. It means you can input 3 full lossless atmos devices stright into the soundbar eARC does`nt really matter because all the streaming services netflix and amazon stream in lossy atmos which ordinary arc can use. I thinks its about time Yamaha released a new dolby atmos soundbar with the latest spec and it would be a great seller.

Have you seen the matching sub for sale anywhere?

Contacted the above, the sub is £599, so when you compare to the Samsung HW-Q80R, £500 more for the equivelent setup (bar and sub). If only the Samsung had 3 HDMI ins!

I just received the Soundbar 10, had a Bose 700 so wanted to compare. I found the Bose easy to set up, however the sound was somehow uninvolving, it lacked bass and was quite flat. The Canton is extremely well built, easily as good as the Bose, pretty easy to set up I currently have Arc to my GZ1000, ATV and Xbox to tv and Sky Q direct to the bar. Remote is small and well built (metal construction). The soundbar really needs running in for 15-20 hours but initial impressions the sound is far more detailed and involving than the Bose. far better bass without any sub attached. I'll comment further when I have run it in and proper time to play. There are a few quirks, it won't recognise Atmos on the internal netflix or prime apps, shows as Dolby Digital+, Sky Q would only play Dolby Digital+ for Atmos, and the netflix app the same. Once I connected Sky box directly to the Soundbar it plays Atmos correctly. Apple TV works fine connected to the TV and correctly plays Atmos from all apps. I'll carry on investigating and do further testing.

Can it pass-through HDR10+?
Was thinking of connecting the new "fire tv cube" to the bar, and seeing if it can pass-through HDR10+ streams from amazon video...

I reached out to one of their reps an this is what they had to say: "We're currently in the certification process of HDR and Dolby Vision. Soundbar 10 should definitely support HDR10 plus as well"

strange that you're getting Apple TV to play atmos whilst its connected to the TV, I thought it would have to be connected to the soundbar for atmos to occur, and then it would pass dolby vision/hdr to the tv...

Yep 100% get Atmos via ATV while connected to tv. Only reason I haven't connected Apple TV directly to the Soundbar as it currently cannot pass DTV, thanks to your news seems like that will be sorted shortly.
