Connect your passive speakers and the smart world of streaming: With the powerful Smart Amp 5.1 as a multi-room AV amplifier with Dolby Atmos® technology, up to 6 wired passive speakers (two pairs of speakers, a centre and a subwoofer) and up to a further 8 wireless speakers from the Canton Smart series (three pairs of speakers, a centre and a subwoofer) can be combined. The Smart Amp 5.1 is a smart, unobtrusive AV amplifier solution that can replace large, heavy amplifiers in times of minimalist living rooms. The powerful 600 watt Smart Amp 5.1 effortlessly manages and operates numerous passive speakers and wireless speakers - right up to a complex Dolby Atmos® system in 7.1.4 configuration. It can be flexibly adapted to your listening room and your listening habits, conveniently via remote control and on-screen menu. With the Apple AirPlay, Chromecast built-in and Spotify Connect features, you can stream your favourite music wirelessly. The variable connection diversity and user-friendliness with 4K-compatible HDMI connections including eARC and many additional inputs allows you to connect your TV and other playback devices directly to the Smart Amp 5.1. Whether it's a high-end stereo system or a combination of wired and wireless speakers - the possibilities are endless for room-filling home cinema sound and flexible streaming.

Control centre
for home cinema sound and picture

Thanks to the four HDMI connections with eARC and HDCP2.2, the Smart Amp 5.1 brings your razor-sharp TV picture to life with gripping, room-filling sound. The Smart Amp 5.1 supports Dolby Atmos®, DTS HD and the HDR (High Dynamic Range) video format as multi-channel sound formats. The on-screen display on the TV allows you to conveniently set up the system and adjust it perfectly to your sound preferences. In addition to the connection as a stereo or AV amplifier for direct connection to the TV, the Smart Amp 5.1 acts as a control centre for a wide variety of players: from CD players, games consoles and Blu-ray players to a classic radio receiver. The freely configurable inputs and outputs provide flexible connection options for your speakers or playback devices.

Wireless music streaming
in High-Res

The high-quality Smart Amp 5.1 AV amplifier serves as a flexibly configurable connection centre for both passive speakers and smart speakers. The basis for impressive sound experiences is created here by a lossless and high-resolution transmission of up to 24 bit / 96 kHz. This enables a combination of 6 passive loudspeakers and up to 8 smart loudspeakers wirelessly. The multidimensional virtualiser ensures stunning 3D surround sound - even with just 2 speakers connected. The powerful DSP enables high-end stereo sound and impressive multi-channel sound. With the Smart Amp 5.1, the variations are versatile and unique: stereo or multi-channel, wired or wireless, the flexible combination of both worlds as well as single-room and multi-room streaming - everything is possible. For example, you have the option of wiring your front speakers and connecting the rear speakers wirelessly.

Perfect amplifier
for ceiling, wall and outdoor speakers

Experience brilliant sound for your installation speakers. Simply connect the Smart Amp 5.1 to up to 6 ceiling, wall or outdoor speakers and enjoy the sound of an almost invisible sound system. Whether for the living room, bathroom or kitchen - the speakers can be installed inconspicuously in the wall. The Smart Amp 5.1 allows you to stream your favourite music conveniently at any time and in any room. The timeless design blends discreetly into any interior style and can be placed unobtrusively anywhere.

Simple operation
also by voice command

In addition to manual operation via the app, you can also start and pause playback, adjust the volume or operate an entire Canton Smart System by voice. Although there are no microphones built into our Smart Amp 5.1, it still offers the highest possible compatibility when it comes to voice control. There are several ways to operate the Smart Amp 5.1 by voice: Use the Siri or Google Assistant voice assistants on your smartphone or an external Apple or Google device of your choice. This allows you to play your favourite music at the touch of a button or by voice in any desired room.
