I have two sets of Canton Ergo Passiv and one set of Canton CT-800. I am very pleased with these speakers. Thankfully they are not well known in the USA, so competition on buying is not that strong. Although I didn't have a stellar knock-out deal like Kloz75 ($20 for a set of CA-15's!), mine were all below market value. I got one set of Ergo's for only $200.

Wow, ajamesb bought those CA-15's off eBay... bummer, as he got ripped off ($599). The seller he bought them from was down in PA. I'd talked with him about these earlier in the year. The guy was a bit clueless. The power cords were missing and therefore nothing could be tested. He didn't bother checking with Canton about them. When I asked him to unscrew the amps and take photos of the internals with the crossovers, he balked. I suspected something was amiss, so I made him an offer of $400... he abruptly declined. Good for me, based on what I learned later. What a nightmare. I guess James didn't get things resolved, as he never came back.

As others have reported, the Canton Ergo Passiv is a great all around performer. Sure, you'll find other speakers that will do better, but usually in just one respect or another--not a total domination. Plus, you'd be paying MUCH more for the competition. The other thing is Canton customer service is exemplary. The director there, Mark, is very appreciative of vintage Canton and will put forth effort to help with issues. I know one guy who had gotten a set of Ergo Passiv's with a blown mid range. Canton replaced it for him and actually charged him significantly less than originally stated. Mark also spotted an issue with one of his crossovers, and helped him get that rectified. I've been lucky in that all of my Cantons came to me working 100%.

One other thing. I have the CT-800 model, which is two steps below the Ergo Passiv (the CT-1000 is in between). I have to say that it comes very close to the Ergo P in performance. It has one less woofer, and so it's 1" larger to make up for the difference. The two 8" woofers on the Ergo P can't be beat.

Lastly, these speakers are just so well made. They're built to last a lifetime. I'm glad I stumbled into the Canton club and plan to stick around for a while.

Hello,

I am setting up a new home theater from scratch. Room is 17x27. I already own what I believe is a really decent audio system, but it is about 15 years old. I know I need a new receiver, I'm planning on purchasing an Onkyo TX-NR709.

My current speakers are Canton's:

L/R Towers = Fonum 600
CNTR = CT 20 CM
S/W = AS 30
Surround L/R and Center = Nestor 403

I got good bargain prices on these back in the day, two units were floor models, Fonums were on discontinued closeout, etc., and I still have well over $2000 invested in speakers. The Sub was a $900 unit by itself (I got it for $550) These speakers weren't bottom offering from Canton, but they weren't top end either. Good, solid, monitor-quality, but not over the top exotic.

Here is my question for all of you, and I welcome all feedback.....

I was only planning on upgrading the receiver for $500. I don't have an additional $2500 laying around to update all the speakers. The local audio store is advising me to go into a $1000 home theater in a box, because all my stuff is "obsolete", and he claims it will sound better than my old speaker setup.

So, my gut reaction is....this guy is an idiot right? Even though my speakers are old, they are really, really nice sounding speakers. The Cantons are studio-monitor-quality units. And although they are by no means the top end of what Canton made, they are still audiophile-realm units. When I bought them, I listened to them side by side with some of the best back then, ADS, B&W, etc. I thought the Cantons were very comparable with speakers costing twice as much. I really felt they were a bargain, considering the sound they made for the price, and listening to them today, I really feel that they still hold their own. I think they still sound awesome. However, I haven't been in a "real" audio store in about 10 years, but even the "nice" stuff that they have in listening rooms at Best Buy doesn't sound any better than my current systems. I obviously need to take a trip to the city to listen to new gear.

Am I really that out of touch that today's home theater's in a box can sound better than a full suite of monitor quality, 4 ohm speakers that are 13 years old? I obviously haven't driven the 1.5 hours to the city to listen to one of the new HTIB systems, so that is on the docket. But, I would like to hear other folks reaction to this guy's recommendation, especially if you have the years of experience to form your opinions on.

So, do I scrap the old Canton's, or do I get a new receiver and have a great system, even by today's standards?

Couple other follow on questions: I also thought about keeping the L/R towers, keep the sub, keep the center channel, but maybe doing a dipole on the back walls of the room. The 3 Nestor 403 speakers that I have are really big, and for aesthetics, I just don't know if I can stomach them being that large. I was thinking of Axiom QS 8's or similar. So, question 2 is would any of you mix brands and put non-Canton dipole's up for surround? Would that be a problem with timbre matching? If not, my other alternative, would be buying some Canton on-wall speakers, since Canton doesn't make dipoles. I may still have a timbre matching issue though, since Canton's new stuff may sound different, but Canton always tended to have pretty matched timbre up and down their product line, over many years, so there is hope!

Thanks in advance for any and all advice!

I personally think you are on the right track, as far as updating your receiver. Well made speakers will last you a long time. You don't say what part of the world you are in, but if you are in the US, I would seriously consider a Marantz receiver over an Onkyo. I have personally used the Marantz SR8002 (&SR7002) to run the largest Canton Ergo's with wonderful results. Before I purchased the Marantz, I listened to every major brand of receiver on the market. Yamaha, Onkyo, Denon, Pioneer, & Sony.
Look at AC4L . com (accessories for less). I believe he carries both Onkyo & Marantz. There are several models to choose from. Currently, you can get a new SR6005 for 599.00(3 year warranty), and a refurbed one for 499.00(1 year warranty). Naysayers will tell you Marantz doesn't have every single bell & whistle that some other receivers have but, Marantz fans are most concerned with sound quality, and quite frankly the Marantz has as many features as most people will ever want or use. You will be amazed at what a good receiver can do for your "old" speakers. Bottom line, if you want crystal clear sound that makes music and movies a pure joy, seriously look into Marantz. The next step up from Marantz IMHO is Rotel (which I have owned, as well), and you will not find a current model Rotel for 500.00.

Here is a recent review of the SR6005. Interesting thing is the guy is very familiar with Onkyo, as well.

Didn't intend to go all "fanboy" on this subject, but bottom line IMHO, is any current decent quality receiver will beat any HTIAB on the market, especially if that receiver is hooked up to your existing Cantons! Good luck and please report back and let us know what route you take. Cheers!

http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...on-thread.html

PS: Just noticed your Onkyo model linked to an e bay ad for that receiver. Again, just my opinion, but there are several sources where you can buy discounted or refurbed receivers with a warranty, without buying something off e-bay, which will rarely have a warranty: AVS Store, AC4l .com, One Call . Com, Ama zon. Need any more info, just PM me.

I think it's rather interesting that a shop owner would tell someone their speakers are obsolete. How does good sound become obsolete. Certainly, technology improves and changes, but you can look at a ton of other threads of speakers from the 70's and 80's that people still use.

I personally decided to get a new pair last year and ended up with a pair of Ergo 690's that sound fantastic, if a tad bright. They have a bit less bass and slam compared to my Klipsch KLF-20's, but allow me to hear more of the music. I can hear guitar plucks and bass plucks I never knew were there.

It also looks like Amazon is clearing out the Ergo line (possibly for an updated model) for a heck of a price, quite a bit cheaper than I paid.

Well I just plopped down a nice sum of money on:

Canton GLE 490 x 2 (L/R)
Canton GLE 455 x 1 (C)
Canton GLE 430 x 4 (surrounds)
Canton Sub 10 x 1

I also just purchased an Onkyo TX-NR809.

Am I going to have any trouble powering those speakers? I hardly know anything about watts and impedence and what requires what, but I'm sure someone here can help me. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks and I'm so excited to get these speakers!

I'm no expert, but I think you should be fine. I have a bit higher end receiver (Denon 4311) and it powers my Ergo 690's just fine. For what I know about the Onkyo 809, it has a ton of power and similar to the 3312 which is one step down from the 4311.

Enjoy your new speakers!

What do people think of the Canton GLE 490 for HT speakers? Compared to the Polk RTI A7?
post #249 of 480
Well I finally got all my speakers. Unfortunately, I bought 2 pairs of the GLE 430's, but they're bigger than I expected and I don't think I can use a pair as my surround left/right (I am however using 2 for the surround rears). I was thinking of picking up some smaller surrround speakers, like the Energy CB-5 pair. Does anyone have any experience using non-Canton surround speakers? Or am I basically stuck since I'm using 430s as the surround rears already? Which surround speakers might be sound-matched well with the 490s/430s?

That said, I guess I'd be willing to sell one pair of the GLE 430s if anyone is interested.
post #250 of 480
Does anyone here have any experience with monitor audio or there rx silver line? I'm on the fence about rx 6 for tower and rxq's for surrounds with match center or... canton gle 470 towers and 430 surrounds with match center... a celedyne inpact 10 would be the sub for both bsystems.

How are you liking the set-up? I have GLE 430's for main and the smaller 402's for rears...455 center. I really like my set-up and you are the first person I have seen on here with essentially the same thing. How much did the sub run you? You may have been able to do a little better unless you got it for cheap. At any rate, I believe you chose wisely. Canton are well kept secret in the states, I love the sound of my speakers. I really wish there was a dealer around that carried some of their higher end models for me to hear.

As far as power....you should be just fine unless you push them super loud. I'm sure adding an amp may get cleaner sound at a louder volume, but you would have to listen at really loud levels.

Will the Canton 420 or 402's work? I think it would be a big mistake to throw anything other than Canton into that set-up. Yeah, matching the front stage is the most important. But you already have 5 Canton's, it seems kind of odd to throw anything else into it.

No I wouldn't be mixing in the system it would be 2 completely different systems... I went ahead and returned thr 420's for the 430's... good bit of difference. I'm pleased with them and will continue with canton for the center (455) and towers 470's... but I may splurge and get the 490's

I'm really happy with them. I don't have a trained ear by any means, but these are sweet. I let them run all day for 2 days while I was at work, left the Tivo on HBO so they'd get some music and movies and stuff all day. The sub is sweet. I got a great deal on everything from Amazon about 1.5 weeks ago, and got the sub for like $350 while it retails for $700 or more I think. I still have a pair of 430's in the box b/c I think they might be too big for my side surrounds. Not sure if I will keep them or buy some smaller Energy surrounds for those. As the rear surrounds the 430's are great. The center 455 is so clear and makes a world of a difference watching movies. I came from an Onkyo htib so of course take this with a grain of salt, but I couldn't be happier with what I picked up.
post #255 of 480
Well I've decided on the canton gle 430's for my fronts until I get the 470's... or 490's... I guess ill deside on them next. Ill probably pick up the 455 center soon and hopefully I will judt get $$ for christmas. My lovely wife is getting me a sub to go with them, I was thiinking the velodyne but someone recommended the energy sub for $250 on newegg. So far I love the speakers but I'm in between AVR's, I had the denon 2112ci but wanted to see about an onkyo ao I got the tx nr 1007. I hate it, so I probably will go back with the denon but any recommendations is good.

You might give Marantz a try. I've had two and love them both.

New Canton owner, checking in!

I've really liked the brand and their attention to detail, but have previously purchased other brands. I have a need for a little AV system for the loft (not the primary theatre spot in the house) and found the 120 LE model and the AS 25 SC subwoofer for a steal (under 80 bucks!) As a bonus, I even got a third 120 LE in the deal, as he was using it for a 2nd zone.

All in all, I can't complain about 4 Canton speakers with little use for $20 each! Once i figure out how i will set the system array up, i'll post what the components are. Cheers!

Okay, I had to chance to hook the little LE 120's up to my Yamaha V765 receiver, and I was surprised at just how much clean sound these little titans put out! The treble and mids are crisp without a hint of being shrill, and they have surprising bass for a speaker of this size.

One thing I was thinking about though.......being that I have a third LE 120, can it be used as a center channel with any real success? While I have dedicated centers on the other systems, I like the idea of using the third 120 if possible to keep the cost down (and it would look pretty cool wall mounted as it would match the other two).

Thanks for any input on this!
post #259 of 480
When a subwoofer outputs weak bass, what could be the likely cause and fix ? Even if I turn the gain to the max on both the sub and receiver, the bass is just weak. When I switch to my Energy S10 sub on the same setup, bass is plentiful with the gain @ 9 o'clock and trim on the receiver @ 0db. So the problem is definitely with the Canton sub but don't what it is? Any clues ?

Here is the info about the sub

Canton AS50 Powered Subwoofer
Forward Firing Bass Reflex Enclosure
12-inch cellulose/polyester driver
Power: 350 watts
Frequency response: 20-150 Hz
Crossover frequency: 20-150 Hz (Adjustable)
Line Level & Speaker Binding Post Connections
22" H x14.2 W x18.2" D
Weight: 59 lbs.
post #260 of 480
Real quick possibility;

If you are running the line level (LFE) out to the subs, you might need to run a splitter to the Canton L&R LFE ins. Sometimes with some subs this is helpful, and with some it is not.

I tired that, it didn't make much of a difference. Thanks.
post #262 of 480
When did the problem start? Have you changed to a new receiver?

If the problem started suddenly (good one day, bad the next), then the problem is most likely the amp. But before you order a new amp, remove the old one and check all of the internal wiring connections between the amp and driver. Remove then re-seat them all. Oxidation could be the culprit. Also while the amp is out, check the driver by hooking it up to another source (one of your other speaker outputs at LOW volume).

Good Luck,

Bill C

Quick rookie amp question:

on the back of my Cantons, it says the impedece is 4.....8 ohms. Does that mean they will run fine as either 4 or 8? i have a Yamaha RX-V765 receiver that I'm quite fond of, I just didn't want to cook it if these are all straight 4 ohm speakers. thanks for any input!

Doug
post #265 of 480
They are engineered to operate between 4 & 8 ohms. I've run mine with a couple of different Marantz receivers with no issues, but if you really want to crank it up without worry, consider adding an external amp at some point.

I have a newer Denon 4311 and I have tripped the internal protection on the receiver a few times. Once I added an amp I had laying around the problem went away. BTW, I have Canton Ergo 690's.

Hi
I bought the Canton Ergo 690DC and 655 speakers just over a week ago and I have been trying to place them to get optimal sound. I had a Klipsch RF-82/RC62 speaker set for the fronts and center and it has been replaced by the cantons. I initially placed them in the same location where I had the Klipsch speakers but just pointing straight instead of any toe in. I was feeling that the fronts were interfering with the center. I then moved the fronts to the left and right corners (just 1ft from the side walls) with speakers still pointing straight and now the imaging of the sound was disjointed. So now I put it little toed in and the sound is better and imaging is also good.

So my question is as Canton specifically states that we should not toe in the speakers and as I am having it toed in, is it right or I should be looking at other ways to get the best sound out of it.

Also, if you can share how you have it arranged in your set up that will help me in trying other options. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

The main thing to remember, is if it sounds right you, go with that. Personally, I have my Ergo 1002's toed in very slightly, and am happy with that. If you toe in too much though, you may notice a more harsh treble.

Also, if you can share how you have it arranged in your set up that will help me in trying other options. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

I had Klipsch KLf-20 that I replaced with the same speakers you did. I have mine slightly toed in. It is what sounds best to you. I did find these are hard speakers to place and get the sound right. But, once they are dialed in they sound fantastic.

Thank you both. I have the 690s toed in slightly and the sound is a lot better. The other problem I was able to fix (which was adding to the problem I was facing earlier) was the monotonous nature of 655. I had it kept little low below the TV and was having low, out of sync audio from the center channel. I had the center lifted up and after running Audyssey it sounds great. Anyway, will be testing this set up this weekend and hopefully it will continue to work with movies. Thanks again for your help.
