Canton, a noted Germany-based prestige loudspeaker maker has announced U.S. and Canadian availability of its new Vento loudspeaker series. Designed for both hi-fi or home theater listening, there are 8 new models in total priced from about $1,400 to $6,500 a pair USD.
Canton Vento Series Core Features
Before we get into details on each speaker, here are some core features of Canton’s latest Vento Series loudspeakers.
The Vento series features multilayer laminated cabinets with curved sides. This provides greater internal volume than straight sides, allowing for better-extended bass response. The cabinets also feature a high-quality high-gloss lacquer finish.
The cabinets for the floorstanding speakers and the subwoofer also rest upon a unique floating base that highlights the graceful proportions of each enclosure. If desired, an acoustically-transparent black grille assembly can be attached to the cabinet magnetically.
Although each speaker may have different size drivers, they have all been redesigned for 2022. Canto designs and manufactures their speaker drivers in-house utilizing cutting-edge proprietary composite materials developed in their own materials lab.
Woofer and midrange drivers feature matte-finished diaphragms of a titanium graphite composite material, coupled with multi-wave surrounds and dual-cone technology, the drivers have lower distortion and greater dynamic capabilities than previous generations.
Tweeters feature powerful magnetic structures and ultra-stiff, lightweight ceramic domes of aluminum ceramic oxide. A waveguide is included that optimizes the tweeter to the listening area.
The rear of the speakers features new solid screw terminals that ensure tight connections with speaker cables of any size or type of connector. Inside, high-quality crossover components have been selected for sonic qualities and sourced from trusted German vendors.
