    The Canton DM 900 solution includes not only a wireless subwoofer but also Bluetooth connectivity and high-end audio decoding. While we don't know the price yet, we're looking forward to learning more about this soundbar solution. We've been reviewing Canton loudspeakers pretty much since Audioholics came into existence. One of their earliest design concepts was to put out the best speakers in their class. That was a long time ago but it doesn't seem like they've let up on that goal. Their newest offering is a soundbar and wireless subwoofer that has a lot of people talking.

    "Unlike many soundbars, the DM 900 is designed to work without a receiver."

    Since when is ANY soundbar designed to work with a receiver?

    The author is referring to passive soundbars like the GoldenEar SuperCinema 3D Array:

    SuperCinema 3D Array | GoldenEar Technology | A Passion for Sonic Perfection

    Essentially these are conventional/passive driver arrays set in a single, wide enclosure with design considerations for the known distance of the individual driver arrays from one another and typical placement (on wall or table-top)

    I agree that these designs seem to be, by far, the less common design compared to active/self-powered soundbars with built-in amplification. But, they're still out there.
