Canton GLE 409
In 1972, the German speaker company known as Canton was first formed. From the outset, the engineers at Canton have been designing high-end speaker system that can replicate a ‘live’ performance from the London Philharmonic just as easily as it can reproduce the bombs and explosions emanating from an action-packed Blu-Ray DVD’s soundtrack for a truly electrifying home theater experience. The rest of the home audio industry took note of what Canton was doing, and in 1995 Canton was awarded the “European Audio Award” for best audio innovation when Canton manufactured their first digital speaker line earlier in that same year. Audio engineers the world over recognized that these new digital speakers would create true musical reproduction in home audio that most engineers could only dream about just a year before. And Canton would not stop there. Just three years ...

Canton Ergo 609 DC
Germany is world-renowned for their contribution to the world when it comes to immaculate automobile design (BMW & Porsche), but Germany also contains an exceptional audio manufacturer that consistently hits the top ten with most audio critics when it comes to designing floor standing speakers, center channel speakers and their Digital Movie Series of loudspeakers which are specifically designed for home theater use. Even before the company was founded in 1972, the main four men who created Canton were working in the field of audio design for many years and each founding member was a huge enthusiast when it came to audio. The Canton name roughly translates to mean “To sing music” in English, so you can see how much passion for the musical element of audio design these founders were bringing to the world even in the nascent beginnings ...

Bowers & Wilkins 803S Loudspeakers
The name “B&W” brings many positive thoughts to audiophiles around the world, and with good reason. This high-end speaker manufacturer, owned by John Bowers and Roy Wilkins, has been a prime catalyst for developing major upgrades to every loudspeaker unit that they ever produced, starting with their first commercial loudspeaker, the P1, which they began manufacturing in 1966. Many years later, they developed the very awe-inspiring Signature 800 series of loudspeakers that featured the very innovative Diamond Dome tweeters, which most people only could gasp at when they saw this amazing-looking futuristic tweeter design at CES 2001. The startling “tweeter on top” found in the Signature 800 series, effectively gets rid of the problem of bouncing sound that is found in a speaker system when you put a loudspeaker’s tweeter in the conventional box cabinet that most loudspeaker’s manufacturers still ...

Acoustic Zen Adagio Loudspeakers
Introduction Acoustic Zen has long been known within the audiophile community as a manufacturer of premium audio cables.  My local brick and mortar hi-fi store has been touting the virtues of Acoustic Zen’s cables for many years.  At CES, I had a candid, off-the-record conversation with an executive for one of the ultra-high end audio electronics companies who extolled the virtues of Acoustic Zen’s Adagio speakers, a new offering from the cable company.  With trusted industry insiders singing the praises of this relatively small manufacturer, I was anxious to see if the Acoustic Zen Adagios were truly world class speakers. I arranged for a review pair of the Adagio speakers, as well as three Adagio, Jr. speakers for center channel and surround duties.  The Adagio retails for $4,300 and is a medium-sized floor-standing speaker measuring 48 inches tall, 13 inches deep and ...

Escalante Design Fremont Loudspeakers
Introduction Every AV enthusiast is different and we each use our systems for different types of music and movies.  Many of us listen to a wide array of musical genres and must strive to get the best sound for each and every one we listen to from a single system, although some audiophiles go to extremes to accomplish this goal by having different speakers or even entire systems for different musical moods.  This is great if time, money and space are not a limiting factor in your pursuit of audio nirvana, but for the rest of us, we need a universal system to accurately reproduce the different genres we listen to; often, this system must do double duty as a home theater.   Finding one speaker to achieve all these goals is not easy, and building one to do it isn’t either.  ...
