I think it's the same gloss finish if you look at my picture of my speakers. The L and R are Chrono 508.2 DC which have only the faces of the cabinets in gloss black. The Atmos are from the current Chrono series The whole cabinet is gloss black. The finish matches.

Great, thank you.

I know that typically when you see "Gloss something" it should be shiny.
But when I saw the Ventos series listed as Piano Black, I thought Gloss Black may be different.

You will get better performance to a better price by buying subwoofers from a company that specializes in it, like SVS.

I've had a Canton sub some years ago and as subwoofers go it did not dig deep nor loud, and the small sealed subwoofer from SVS that replaced it was smaller, performed better and was cheaper. That subwoofer is replaced with larger SVS subwoofers, though.

I was wondering who had the Canton Chrono 596s and their thoughts and why they bought those over whatever else is on the market like the B&W or Martin Logans

Thanks

I recently ordered the Canton SL Chrono 596DC and expected delivery is Tuesday 6-11-19.

So to answer your question as simply as possible.......great value for the price.

The only other brand/speaker that I strongly considered was Audiovector QR5.

If your going to pay full retail and have 1 of the 3 U.S.A Audiovector dealers near you......Go listen to them

I enjoy great sound....but I don't live in a listening room. So I simply couldn't justifying spending 3k plus on speakers.

If I did live in a listening room.....then I would have spent 10k on Audiovector SR 3 AVANTGARDE (best I ever heard).

So how are they? I want to sell my setup and upgrade if it's worth it.
