MINNEAPOLIS (2/27/06) — Canton has introduced its CD 200 series of loudspeakers, delivering outstanding sound performance in slimline cabinets that are ideal for use with flat-panel video displays. The line includes three models available separately or as part of a pair of packaged 5.1-channel systems that include matched subwoofers.

Top of the new line is the floorstanding CD-200, followed by the horizontal or vertically mountable CD 250, and the CD 220 mini-speaker. Each features a graceful brushed aluminum housing and a low-depth cylindrical shape that is not only extremely attractive, but also serves to minimize standing wave formation within the enclosure. Each model features Canton’s lauded ADT-25 aluminum-manganese tweeter, and a highly refined 4-inch aluminum woofer similar to those used in the larger CD-300 series.

The Canton CD 200 floorstanding models each have four of the line’s aluminum woofers and a sophisticated 2-1/2-way crossover network. Thanks to this crossover design, all four of the woofers are used to reproduce low-frequency bass signals, while only the upper pair are used for upper-bass and midrange reproduction. This arrangement provides the equivalent surface area of a single 8-inch woofer in the deep bass range, but maintains point-source characteristics in the critical mid-range. At just 5.5-inches wide, 4-inches deep, and 43-inches tall, the CD 200 is capable of delivering extremely faithful reproduction while occupying very little floor space, adding to the decor rather than dominating it. The CD 200 carries a suggested retail price of $750 each.

The CD 250 shares many of the same features with the larger CD-200, including crossover design and driver construction, but features just two woofers and a cabinet that is 17-inches long. Its symmetrical shape lends itself extremely well to use in either a horizontal or vertical arrangement, thanks to the 2-1/2-way crossover network. It includes both wall-mount brackets and a table-top stand, and is ideal for use as a stereo pair or L/R speaker, or as a horizontal center-channel in a home theater system. The CD 250 is available at a suggested retail price of $500 each.

The CD 220 is a compact two-way design that uses a single 4-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter in a cabinet that is just 9-inches tall. It is perfectly tonally matched to both the CD-200 and CD-250 for use in multichannel systems, and serves as an excellent min-satellite. It can be mounted on the wall using the included hardware, or placed in the room atop the optional LS 105 loudspeaker stands. The CD 220 has a suggested retail price of $250 each.

There are also two packaged 5.1-channel home theater systems that use the CD 200 series speakers, the Movie CD 201 and the Movie CD205. The Movie CD 201 includes four CD 220 satellites, and a single CD 250 speaker for use as the center channel; the 150 Watt AS 80 SC active subwoofer completes the package. The Movie CD 205 employs five CD 250 speakers for all fullrange channels, and features the ICEPower digital amplifier-powered AS 100SC subwoofer for commanding deep bass reproduction. The Canton Movie CD 201 and Movie CD 205 home theater speaker packages have suggested retail prices of $1,999 and $3,099 each, respectively.

The Canton CD 200 series loudspeakers and Movie systems are all currently available at Canton dealers.

Canton is the largest manufacturer and best-selling brand of loudspeakers in Germany. It was founded in 1973 by a group of audio enthusiasts who defined their mission “to always develop the finest loudspeakers in their class.” For more information about this and other fine Canton products, visit or call 612-706-9250.
