AVRev.com: Canton releases the redesigned GLE loudspeaker system, meant for stereo or multichannel audio setups. The series consists of two floorstanding models, two compact speakers, a center channel, and on-wall speaker.
The GLE lineup improves the iteration of the soft dome tweeter. Previously the tweeters were made of a fabric dome. Now the tweeters are made from a finer silk material, extending the high-end.
The system contains the GLE 490 floorstanding model, which is a three-way bass reflex design. The second floorstanding model, the GLE 470, is a 2-1/2 way design using 7-inch woofers. The GLE 455 is the center channel, featuring two 6-1/4-inch woofers. The GLE 430 is bookshelf speaker that contains a 7-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter.
SlashGear: The well known speaker maker from Germany, Canton has announced immediate shipment of its flagship reference series 3.2 DC audiophile-grade loudspeakers.
Like most German’s finest automobiles, the leading edge speakers and top of the line from Canton’s floor-standing unit doesn’t come cheap though.
The premium gets you three-way bass reflex system with outstanding deep bass response and smooth high frequency response that is linear to 38.5 kHz with the company first’s ceramic dome tweeter.
Ecoustics: German loudspeaker brand Canton has expanded its Chrono line of value-oriented high-performance loudspeakers with two new models, the three-way Chrono 511 DC tower and the compact Chrono 501 on-wall speaker.
The new models become the largest and smallest models in the lineup, which now consists of six full-range models and a powered subwoofer.
“The Chrono line was designed to give consumers access to Canton’s high end speaker technologies, but at a more modest cost than was previously available,” comments Canton USA president Paul Madsen. “By employing the drivers, design and engineering of the classic Ergo series, but with less costly cabinet aesthetics, we were able to reduce pricing by over 30%, and the response has been extremely positive. By adding a new top-of-the-line tower and low-depth on-wall, we’ve expanded the range of applications for home theater and music systems, making it even more versatile.”
Like the rest of the Chrono full-range models, the 511 DC and 501 each employ the company’s highly regarded ADT-25 aluminum-manganese dome tweeter. The tweeter employs a one-piece aluminum-manganese dome and voice coil former.
