The Chrono SL 580 DC, a floor standing speaker, is a new narrow footprint design, akin to the Karat line. The SL 580 DC features a pair of 6” aluminum woofers, another 6” driver for mid range, and a 1” aluminum-manganese tweeter.
Though sound is certainly an important aspect, Canton is stressing the aesthetic quality of these speakers. As US Distributor Paul Madsen puts it “Canton's high-gloss lacquer finishes are simply beautiful. Now we can offer this 'look' as a much more affordable option to our dealers and customers.” The floor standing Canton Chrono SL 580 DC and 590 DC will sell for $3,000 and $3,500 per pair, while the bookshelf model SL 520 and SL 530 will retail for $1,200 and $1,500. Canton’s SL 555 DC, the center channel speaker, will sell at $1,000 when the line starts shipping this month.
