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.

I am about to join the Canton Club. I ordered a pair of Vento 890.2 DC and can’t wait to they arrive. I may replace my entire Klipsch surround system if they are as good as I have read. I know they are an older model, but I got them NIB for $2400 delivered, less than 1/2 MSRP. I recently got back into vinyl and decided I needed more musical speakers. Color me excited.

Good call -- check back and report your take on their sound signature.

The 890.2 do have the newer ceramic tweeter. I've attached the measurements of the 890.2 from a review article that I bought.

Edit: I replaced my smallish Vento 870.2 DC towers with the new and larger Vento 886.2 DC towers. The 870.2 is very nice but I needed (erh, wanted ) a three-way with 7" woofers/midrange instead of a 2.5 way with 6" woofer/midrange as my 2.5 way Vento 858.2 Centre had bigger woofers than my towers.

Trell, thanks for that info.

I am excited to get these speakers. Also glad I have a powerful amp that can handle the low impedance of the Cantons. I also ordered a Vento 856.2 Center, but really want the Vento 866. The dealer did not have inventory, but I am going to call tomorrow to see if they can get one. It’s only $100 more. Would really like to have the 7” woofer/midrange instead of the 6” in the 856.

Sadly, for me, is that the 866 and 866.2 is no longer made in high gloss cherry, so I'll keep the 858.2. The 866/866.2 are now 3-way instead of 2.5, and the tweeter is moved up a little.

The impedance of Canton speakers varies quite a lot, and one needs a review to know this. Your 890.2 has a minimum of 3.1 Ohm, the successors 896 has the same, while the newest 896.2 has a minimum of 4 Ohm. My older smallish 870.2 has minimum 3.7 Ohm, while I do not know the minimum Ohm my 886.2, yet.

That is too bad about not having the cherry version. How are you liking the upgrade to the 886.2 DC?

I did cancel the order for the 856.2. They have a new shipment of the 866.2 delivering later this week. I did see the change from 2.5 to 3 way and with the 7” woofer/midrange drivers.

I had seen some reviews of the Canton Vento towers with the old metal tweeter showing a little extra “brightness” which looks like it got flatter through the upper frequencies with the new ceramic tweeter.

I think the 886.2 is a nice upgrade (confirmation bias ), but the older speakers was very nice as well.

For Ventos with the ceramic tweeter the brightness seems less as compared to the Vento 820 (generation before your 890.2 and mine 870.2, having metal tweeter) bookshelf that I have for surround. By playing level test tones (pink noise?) from the receiver I hear a difference with the 820 seemingly brighter. I think the 886.2 is a little bit brighter than the 858.2, by the same quick-and-dirty "test method". Whether or not that is apparent in normal program material is another matter, but then I'm an older guy with fading hearing

That older Vento speakers could be bright, but I think that is more of a Canton design choice for voicing than anything else.

My pair of Vento 890.2 towers have shipped, scheduled to arrive Friday. A4L also received a new Canton shipment delivered this week and I ordered the Vento 866.2 Center this afternoon. Can't wait.

I apologize for not responding sooner.

The Canton Chrono SL 596 DC's sound AWESOME.

I have listened to just about every speaker available to me. I even spent the day at AXPONA and visited every single room.

Based on members opinions and knowing what speakers I can buy for the same price at any and all retailers in my area,
I decided to roll the dice on the Chrono SL's......and I am very happy that I did.

I have never listened to the non-SL Chrono's, so I cannot comment on how they compare.

However, in my opinion...the closest sounding speaker (might be a little better) to the SL 596 is Audiovector QR5's.

Now I have read more than once that Canton's are "Power" hungry.
I am not sure what exactly is meant by Power, but it sure isn't Watts.

I initially connected these speakers to my Onkyo TX-NR609 receiver (Blu Ray player as CD transport, 2 channel stereo, no subwoofer)
and with the volume turned up 1/2 way...they sounded good.

But wait.....I then connected them to a Denon PMA-800NE Integrated amp with same blu ray player as transport.
The volume knob on the Denon in the 7 o'clock position is all the way turned down (off)...moving it to the 8 o'clock position was
louder and way more dynamic than the Onkyo. They sounded like completely different speakers with the Denon...in a very good way too.

My speakers are in my family room that is about 2400 cubic feet, 9 foot ceiling, and opens to kitchen, dining, and living room.

On paper, the Onkyo seem like it has more power based on watts. But this comparison wasn't even close.

Now that I have upgraded my L&R speakers to the Canton Chrono SL 596 DC's,
I am considering using the Vento 866.2 as the center speaker.

What do you guys think of this idea?

I have an a Vento 866.2 on the way to me. I can’t imagine that it wouldn’t fit right in with the Chrono SLs. I think the Canton are similarly voiced. Go for it. A4L just got a new shipment in.

My Canton towers were just delivered. Perfectly packaged for safe shipping by A4L.



Can’t wait to get them set up. Center is coming next Tuesday.

Got the Canton 890.2s unpacked, balanced and leveled and playing the first album. HOLY Sh** these sound fantastic and they aren’t even broken in yet. They are way more musical than the RF5s they replaced. The mid range is killer for vocals. My wife, who is deaf in one ear, commented how much clearer these sound.

Got them sitting about 8 ft apart, 18 inches from the wall to the back of the speaker. I sit about 9 ft away. Can’t wait for the center to arrive on Tuesday.

I was never wow'ed by any Klipsch speakers, so I take it you never listened to Canton before.

Over the last 20 years, my wife never had any comments (wasn't interested) about any electronics.

After the first few songs played on the SL 596's, she came downstairs and commented on how crisp, detailed, and clear they sounded.

Similar to your wife.....mine has 30% hearing loss and wears hearing aids.

I had never heard Canton Speakers. I found them researching speaker upgrades to the Klipsch. After reading several reviews I decided to go with the Cantons. I was also seriously considering
Monitor Audio and Focal. Canton won out. Can’t wait until they get 20+ hours on them for the breakin. These are seriously good sounding now and supposedly get ever better when broken in.

The Klipsch were good for movie, but too strident with music. They got fatiguing with longer listening sessions.

Congratulations, they are very nice speakers. Do you use any toe-in?

I am not using a toe-in. I may try it, but so far the dispersion seems to be so good it will not be necessary. I half way through break-in. Once done I will really put them through their paces.

Great to see the bustle of activity in here. The 502.2s have been on my radar for quite some time but I can't quite pull the trigger. A4L's selection is a bit intimidating with the brand so 'mysterious' in the US.

Open the Spoiler.

Maranta SR6012 AVR, Rotel RMB 1095 power amp, plenty of good power for the Cantons.

For home theater, your using the Marantz SR6012 as a pre-amp combined with the Rotel RMB 1095?

Yes. And for 2 channel stereo. The Marantz has HDAM preamps, supposedly for better playback.

My Vento 866.2 arrived today. It is as gorgeous as the towers. Unfortunately I did not have time to set it up (grandkids are here). I will get it running tomorrow for sure. I also bought some 12 gauge speaker wire. With the Ventos running as low as 4 Ohm’s and my amp capable of over 300 watts per channel at 4 ohms, all channels driven, I think heavier cable is in order. I was running 16 gauge with my old Klipsch Reference system. This time I am cutting each to the exact length needed for each speaker. I was going to go the Techflex, cable pants route, but since very little of the cables will be visible, why bother.
zieglj01 and Trell like this.
