CANTON VENTO & REFERENCE K series - "TIMELESS CREATIONS for ULTIMATE MUSICAL PLEASURE

New

CANTON VENTO Series speakers with a titanium membrane and an optimised ceramic tweeter system combine to form the perfect symbiosis for an exceptional sound experience. With a new cabinet design and refined socket construction, every loudspeaker of the Vento Series stands for ultimate perfection.

Ceramic tweeter system
Acoustically optimised and perfectly tuned in countless listening sessions, the extremely lightweight yet rigid ceramic tweeters ensure precise sound reproduction.

Titanium Membranes
The new Vento Series uses titanium membranes in both the woofers and mid-range speakers. In combination with the latest generation of the triple-fold wave surround this gives a controlled, faultless swing-in and swing-out behaviour, even at high volume.

Cabinet geometry
The characteristically organic design of the solid, multi-layer laminate cabinet with its down-fire bass reflex vent produces perfect standing. The meticulously crafted conical spacers show superb attention to detail. High quality, diamond-cut aluminium rings increase the stability of the loudspeaker system.

Speaker terminals
The bi-wiring/bi-amping connection terminal means that the tweeter and mid-range ranges can be controlled separately from the woofers. Stable 24-carat, gold plated screw terminals ensure optimum signal transmission.

Front cover
The high quality, acoustically neutral fabric covers hide the technology from view and can be elegantly attached using magnetic fastenings.

Surface
The loudspeakers of the Vento Series are lacquered, sanded and sealed with a high gloss lacquer in an eight-stage process. They are available in standard black or white “high gloss” finish and special natural cherry wood (extra cost)

CANTON VENTO 896 DC - 5/5 STARS
HIFITESR.DE

GERMAN to ENGLISH GOOGLE TRANSLATION - SUMMARY: Cantons loudspeakers score points with outstanding performance in our measurement lab. The Vento 896 DC play very linearly and reach deep down, radiating Their behavior is Exemplary. So Measured off the main axis below 15 and 30 degrees, the amplitudes are excellent. In addition, the loudspeakers score with low distortion and fast decay.

The still dewy Ventos in the program by the Hessian speaker specialist Canton are elegantly designed, perfectly finished and promise best sound. We make it to the test, and test the flagship models Vento 896 DC.

At first glance, the new Vento is not much different from its predecessor. Why should the makers in Canton change so also wantonly? The speakers in her elegant gown are in fact very much in demand in the hi-clientele since the publication of the series. Clearly, the Hessian, under the technical direction of Frank Göbl, purely visual change little. Under the hood, however, some things have: from minor technical corrections.  

Canton Vento 896 DC
The 896er has been strictly speaking in the past. In the 110 cm high cabinets Canton installed three woofer and midrange systems with the new membrane material titanium, which are supported by the proven ceramic tweeters in their musical goings.

The membranes made from Titanium are made of titanium and aluminum.
In order to achieve greater stiffness is coated with a layer of titanium, an aluminum membrane. Although this results in a slightly higher weight than pure aluminum, but the acoustic performance wins againt. In combination with the now three-fold wave surround a very controlled and decay so is obtained. The two woofers work in a ventilated volume, the outlet opens invisible on the base. Four spacer feet in front of the loudspeaker.

The curved cabinet is made of multi-layer laminate and available with three different surfaces. Cantons Vento 896 DC is a varnish lacquer - several layers of varnish are applied in succession, sanded and then sealed with a high-gloss varnish.

The two woofers with nominal size 200 are responsible for a range of approximately 30 to 250 hertz. Uncontrolled deflection of the bassdrive prevents Cantons Proven DC technology, which will ensure that the speakers are up to very high sound levels play undistorted. Above 250 hertz of high midrange assumes the director. Acoustically transparent fabric covers are magnetically fixed on the baffle.  000 Hertz passes the baton to the tweeters with attached Waveguide. Acoustically transparent fabric covers are magnetically fixed on the baffle. Acoustically transparent fabric covers are magnetically fixed on the baffle.
