I doubt it as I have my speakers sitting on hard surface anyhow.

They do however make it way easier to move around.

So I just bought a pair of Canton GLE 436 bookshelves from amazon warehouse for $190 like-new. They arrive next week. Super excited.

I also noticed amazon had these: https://www.amazon.com/Canton-03369-.../dp/B00ZCZJZ6S

Why are they selling the 476 for $300 under retail as seen here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CEXNLLQ...RJKH41ZWEYJ4GD

Nice choice! Canton isn't very wellknow over there I see but they are great speakers! Very much details and crisp! I own 490 (496 are the newer version) and 420 as surrounds. Very satisfide with them!

I live in Sweden so I can buy them cheap. 3990 swedish kronor. Around 460 usd for a pair of 490. Check and see if you can buy them from here. www.netonnet.se or something like that ☺

I'd say the cheaper price looks about right for a single speaker, the higher price should be a pair of speakers. The odd thing with these amazon offers is they come from amazon directly and neither of the two gets all the details right in product data. So you gotta ask amazon why they screwed it up so badly...
check for reasonable pricing in Europe first to find out about real retail prices, e.g. http://skinflint.co.uk/?fs=canton+GLE+436&in= (these have VAT included - roughly 20% in UK/DE/AT)
btw your new bookshelves need a sub-woofer to shine below 100Hz

Hi Miney, Welcome to the club.

I'm running my Karats on a Marantz SR-8001 which is a very warm sounding receiver.

Curiosity has me wondering what other Canton owners are using to drive their speakers?



Rotel RX-1052 here.
Using the RX-1052 to power Ergo 1002DCs. Love the combo! Not at all fatiguing, as some others have found with bookshelf models.
