Refined speakers

5 CANTON Chrono 509.2 DC 7" 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker Black Each
Reviewer: from Boston, MA
Canton speakers are hard to find here in the US. They are a German company and sell a lot of speakers in Europe, though. It's a shame because they make really good loudspeakers. Someone I know at a high end shop told me that dealers don't like to carry them because the arrangement is not profitable.

Anyway, these are great sounding speakers. I upgraded from Klipsch RF-52ii floorstanders, which are fine speakers, too. But the Cantons, while also accurate and revealing, are more refined. I can listen to them good and loud for long sessions comfortably. The frequency response is quite level from 40 Hz up, and they were very easy to integrate with the subwoofer. I think this is due to the bottom-firing bass reflex port. It is less sensitive to nearby walls and furniture than a rear-firing port. One thing I don't like about Canton is their frequency response specification. These are said to be 20-20000 Hz, but I measured them as - 3 dB at about 35 Hz.

Their higher end speakers are made in Germany; these are also made in Europe, but in Slovakia. The build quality is excellent, though, and they are pleasingly heavy. They have kind of contemporary look with the glossy black finish. I would have preferred matte in my living room and for scratch/fingerprints, but these fit in OK and are not gaudy by any means.

My first Canton speaker was a used center channel (GLE 455.2, entry level), which immediately improved movie dialog clarity. When the time came for a front speaker upgrade, I listened to similarly priced B&W, Klipsch, Definitive Technology, and Paradigm. Those were all good speakers, but from the center and what I saw online, I took a chance on Canton and am glad I did. The only regret I have is maybe not going for a higher level series, the Vento.
