German manufacturer Canton has stepped up its offerings with five new high gloss speakers.  Neither low nor high end, the performance and pricing of the new loudspeakers is nestled comfortably in the middle. The new line, dubbed Chrono SL, is made up of a pair of floor standing speakers, a pair of bookshelf speakers, and a center channel.  Most of these new speakers are slightly scaled down versions of existing speakers, with one exception. 

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.
