“We really needed good control over the sound, and we got that with digital, but we lost the sound. We don't have the sound anymore, unfortunately, it's gone.”     Neil Young, 1993, from MTV's “Week In Rock” 1993“The Compact Disc was a good idea.”     Sony Music SACD insertBack in the early 1980s, a star was born. The compact disc arose from various engineering labs as the much-touted successor to the venerable LP. Praised for its “perfect sound” and progression beyond the noisiness of records, compact discs soon became the audio format of choice. In a few short years, hundreds of thousands of the little plastic discs were being produced, as the CD raced ahead and analog records fell behind. All was well – seemingly – but there were a few analog holdouts who screamed “digititis!” This new format is ...

Wandering around the show room floor at the 20th Anniversary 2009 CEDIA Expo offers a daunting experience, as turning your head 180 degrees will likely reveal no less than two new flat-panel televisions, a psychedelic set of speakers, and a super-secret enclosure available only for the elite (or, more like the patient).  New technology is spilling from the seams in brightly-light, ultra-colorful displays aiming to grab your attention in any way possible.  Underneath the glitz and glamour behind brand-spanking new electronics from major and minor labels alike, however, this expo also showcases many items that are just about to hit the market.  It is, after all, an event largely constructed to entice dealers with new retail “stuff” to offer consumers.  Let’s take a look at some of the enticing (and eyebrow-raising) flat-panel displays and Blu-ray players found on the CEDIA ...

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 ...
