Description

Description

With their angular and self-confident appeal, these loudspeakers have high recognition value.

Acoustically, this can be found in their powerful and direct sound. This is made possible by the use of driver technology from the large loudspeaker series.

Thanks to the optimized shape of the aluminum-manganese tweeters with transmission front plate and the midrange speakers and woofers with their patented Canton wave surround technology, the sound of Chrono Series’ loudspeakers is as warm as it is balanced.

The socket construction, not commonly found in this class, provides the necessary acoustic clearance and underlines the claim of doing everything to produce optimal sound quality.

Details

Memorable

The attractive combination of high gloss baffle, structured decoration and dominant chrome rings gives the Chrono Series a striking look.

Dominant

Modesty is not its thing: the Chrono Series shows what it's made of and sets the tone in no uncertain terms.

5.0 3 CANTON Chrono 502.2 6" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Black Pair

Impressive and Beautiful Bookshelf Speaker

5 CANTON Chrono 502.2 6" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Black Pair
Reviewer: from Georgia USA
I am running these Chrono 502.2 speakers through an AudioSource AMP100 that is hooked up to my PC sound-card via line out. The amplifier is more than enough to really crank these 4 ohm speakers. At approx 30% output on the Amp, I am getting 85-90db at 1 meter. I do not run any EQ software for these speakers and only deliver a straight signal. For music, I employ my Tidal subscription for uncompressed full range music.

First impressions:

Looks: The cabinet design, glossy finish, and driver enclosure look great! The speakers are very classy in appearance and match the rest of my dark desktop setup well. I prefer to use them without the grill on as they look quite beautiful without them on.

Sound: As of now, the speakers have only been run continuously for about an hour and have yet to be fully broken in. In the manual, Canton recommends a 15-20hour break in period. However, my initial impressions are very good. The bass and low end on these speakers is clean and warm. For others who have Canton GLE/Chrono towers, the bass output is similar in the clean/accurate sense.

Mid range is solid and very enjoyable. I have compared these to the Energy CB20, RC10, CB10, and CB5. I have found the mid range on these speakers to be very transparent and accurate but not overly pronounced. Instrumental music is very pleasant as a result.

I think the best part of this speaker is in the Aluminum-Manganese tweeter. The high end of these speakers are utterly phenomenal. The clarity and realism of frequencies above 3k hz is just fantastic. Voices, synths, and many other instruments sound very lifelike, transparent, and soft. I cannot speak highly enough of the tweeter on this speaker-no piercing at high volume, even response, and extreme clarity.

Overall, I would give these speakers a 5/5 for the price considering at original MSRP they were approx $950. Accessories4Less offers some incredible deals on the Canton lineup. As of now, I don’t see the Cantons getting enough attention and I wanted to hop on the bandwagon to spread the news that these speakers are incredible. Hope this helps anyone who is eyeing these speakers or similar Canton bookshelf equipment!

Reviewer: from Massachusetts
The fit and finish is superb on these speakers. There is nothing "cheap" about them. I have them paired with a pioneer 2 channel stereo network receiver and they sound fantastic while watching TV. In another room I connected them up and switched a pair of JBL L82's and my wife didn'r even notice a difference in sound! I did slightly in the bass but not by much, these definately performed way, way beyond my expectations. Now back to the TV, I finally replaced my pair of BA VRm60's because I wanted a bit more clearer sound on vocals and keep the 2 channel set up and well I wanted something new too... These speakers have outperformed what I thought I was getting. They remind me if the the elac debut 1st edition and the 2nd has a baby with genetic mutation,,,they are built much better than the elacs, more on the line of boston acoustics vr series or energy rc connoseur, They stack up to 1k-1.5k speaker fit and finish, like kef but a bit better The sound is warm, clear and the highs just a touch rolled off. Not bright. The mid range is full but not blush and not exaggerated, the bass is fast and punchy. Not a boomy bass or deep bass like the L82's but hey they are $500. Like I said, I bought these for TV, but net radio and pandora sound fantastic too. These take about 2 weeks to break in and I cound't be happier with these and for me so say that,,,that's a big deal. The dimesions work for me too, not too tall, wide or deep, that seems to be trend with a lot of speakers these days. Get them while you can.
