How are they with movies and compared with Klipsch? An upgrade even there?

These speakers kick a**. I just got the 866.2 center installed today and will be auditioning tonight, although the center won’t be broken in yet. These speakers are in a significantly higher class than the Klipsch Reference speaker they replaced (RF-5, RC-7) albeit more costly too.Even as I watch the news the new center is noticeably clearer and smoother. As expected the voice reproduction is dynamite. We listened to Eric Clapton Unplugged and the speakers shined. I couldn’t be happier with the upgrade!

Cantons really shine with power. I had my setup running off a mrx720. They sounds good but my goodness do they open up on a good power amp

Ran Audyssey XT32 today and got the new speakers dialed in nicely. We are really going to love these Canton Vento speakers for years to come.

I want to setup up HT for a small room (13x14)ft. 75% i use it for movies/netflix series and 25% for music.
I liked the Q Acoustics 3000i series with my sub HSU VTF-2 but the center seems little weak in terms for mid-bass so i want to up my game with canton.

i've heard a lot about canton in this forum but didn't really see much of any reviews out there, so i'm not sure which one to pick and which one suits my needs.

L/R: Chrono 518 / SL 590.2 / SL 586 DC / Vento 876
Center: Chrono SL 556.2

since i'm mostly using it for movies, is it won't spending more money on Chrono series or can i stick with GLE series and save some money. also, i read about the brightness of canton speakers, i'm ok with little bright speakers but not too bright. please suggest which one the canton lineup better suits me.

Receiver: Denon x4400h

Techno.Tom,

Don’t hesitate on the Chrono series for movies, they will be great. Definitely better than the GLE series. Check this review:

https://www.soundandvision.com/floor...XoSucsPSPR3.97

Canton’s lower series do have aluminum manganese tweeters, but I believe they have tamed the brightness in the recent years speakers. The Vento series has a ceramic tweeter. Canton speakers have outstanding mid range reproduction so they are really excellent with voices. The Vento series is a BIG step above the Klipsch Reference speakers they replaced, the older made in the USA ones, RF-5 towers.

I couldn’t be happier with my Cantons. I can’t stop listening to music. I bought a new TT and now looking to get a better CD player because of the Cantons. The only thing that hurts is my wallet.

Looking at some chronos

I am looking at a set of Cantons for my small upstairs living area. I had a set of Canton separates in my car 20 years ago, but have never owned the home speakers. I currently have KEF Q 300,but I need something a tad smaller and I have a chance to buy some Chronos 502.2 for a great price. Subwoofer in that area is an SVS PB1000. I have heard the Chronos Online and they sound amazing through a recording, so i cant imagine them live and in person. Will be run off of Yamaha Aventage 1070 or Anthem MRX 520.

Basement HT 5.1.2 - Marantz 6012, Outlaw 5000 - ELAC Debut F5 Towers, C5 Center, B5 Bookshelves as surrounds - Monolith 15(RETURNED) - BenQ2050a 92" Silver Ticket
Upstairs Living Room, Music 2.1 - Anthem MRX520 - Pair of Chane A1.5's, - SVS PB 1000 - Projekt Debut turntable - LG 55" B8 OLED
Bedroom 2.1 - Denon AVR740h - ELAC B4 Bookshelves - Klipsch R-10SW - TCL 49"

I am running 502.2 for surrounds on my mrx720. They need a subwoofer if you run them as fronts.

I have a pair of 502.2s and a small sealed sub and they sound great. Slightly regret not getting bigger drivers but not often.

Yeah I think the 503.2 would be the way too go. If you listen at moderate levels the 502.2 are fine. But if you push them the drivers might get sloppy.

Canton refreshed the Chrono SL series last year and then they use the ceramic tweeter, while the refresh of Chrono series still uses the non-ceramic tweeter.

I recently purchased the Canton Chrono SL 596 DC, and I can absolutely state that these speakers are not "Bright."
In addition, my wife with hearing loss/hearing aids and my neighbor said these speakers sound fantastic.

Keep in mind.....my wife could care less about speakers, has never said anything in 20 years about my old speakers, but within 10 minutes
of playing music on the Canton Chrono SL 596 DC.....she came down stairs and said the speakers sound Great.

I am also using these speakers for home theater/movies.

I suggest picking a speaker with 7" speakers (SL 590.2) vs 6" (Chrono 518).

BTW...Chrono SL 596 DC price reduction at A4L.

Thanks for you reply! i just ordered Chrono SL 590.2 (L/R) and SL 555.2 for center
Which receiver are you using to power your SL 596?

I have Denon x4400h which has 125W per channel @8ohm, not sure if it has enough power to drive these towers? or is it better to use a amplifier?

The Canton speakers tend to have impedance dips to below 4 Ohms. I don’t know about the Chrono SL series, though. You should be OK with the Denon X4400h. I do have a Rotel external power amp, but I had it before I bought the Cantons.

You are going to love your new speakers.

I assume you got them from A4L. Good folks, they will pack them with great care. Let us know how you like them. BTW, it takes 20+ hours to break them in.

I use the Denon avr-x4200w to drive my floorstanders Canton Vento 886.2 just fine; my fronts and surrounds are all Canton Vento. The distance to the front LR is 8.8 feet in a fairly small room (about 1600 ft^3) and crossover at 80 Hz to my subs.

Glad you asked. Currently, I am piecing together a new and improved HT system. The Chrono SL 596 DC's are the first piece of my puzzle.

The current L&R floorstanding speakers are Canton Fonum 501 DC's I purchased new in 1993,
and I purchased a Canton GLE 455.2 center speaker from A4L in 2018.

My receiver is an Onkyo TX-NR609, spec's from Sound and Vision Magazine:
https://www.soundandvision.com/conte...-labs-measures

I initially used the Onkyo with the SL 596's, and they sounded good.

However, based on my research (which included AVSFORUM) I decided to try the Denon PMA-800NE Integrated Amplifier with the SL 596's.
https://usa.denon.com/us/product/hif...fiers/pma800ne

On paper...based on watts.....the Onkyo is the clear winner.

In reality, the Denon "SMOKED" the Onkyo. The Denon at less than 1/4 turned up was far more dynamic than the Onkyo at 1/2 volume.

Night and Day difference.

So my recommendation is to not focus too much on Watts. Your X4400 should work well, but I recommend trying the Denon PMA-800NE.

Why?

Because, I am considering getting the Denon AV-X3500H and using the pre-outs with an external amplifier for the L/C/R.

And you may decide to do the same after trying the Denon PMA-800NE.

Crutchfield...60 days to try....cost you $10.00.

How does something like Canton Chrono 513 compare to say Klipsch RP600? They're both currently in similar price range. I haven't heard either one.

I know the Klipsch is going to be more efficient, so it'll require less powerful amp. I'm interested in something that delivers clear/revealing top end without being ear fatiguing, not recessed midrange, as well as reasonably good low end so that it can run without a sub in a small room.

Just as a quick point of information, volume knob settings have zero relation to definitive power output or an amplifier's capabilities. Gain tapers can vary drastically between amps and if the speakers are putting out the same volume even though volume (aka gain) knobs are at different settings, the amps are still pushing the same power and may still have plenty on tap.

That said it's entirely possible that the Onkyo doesn't/didn't like something about the Cantons so good to hear about the Denon.

My Cantons have an excellent mid-range, not sure about the Chrono series, but most likely they are voiced similarly to my Ventos. I upgraded from Klipsch Reference series to the Cantons, I wouldn’t go back.

I'm looking at upgrading from my Chrono 502s to the Vento 836 and I'm wondering if my existing LS300 stands can handle them. The mounting holes are in the same place and I wouldn't mind there being a little corner sticking out since the Vento-matching stands are $500 even on AC4L. Canton's own website shows the cheaper stands can handle the 8kg SL 536 so I think they should be able to handle the 8.7kg Ventos.

I have the older Canton LS 600 stands for my Vento 820 speakers and it fits fine with no part of it sticking out. The LS 300 seems to be very similar to mine LS 600. The Vento 820 is an earlier model of your Vento 836.

The top plate is 13 cm x 18 cm, and the base plate is 26 cm x 34 cm with height 61 cm excluding feet.

Thanks, the key difference seems to be yours and the 850s have two posts and mine only have a single one. My current ones are super stable, though, I don't think another 5 pounds will make much of a difference, especially with the mechanical connection of the mounting screws.

I’ve been living with my Cantons for about 1 month now. The more I listen, especially to music, the more I like, no love them. They throw a huge 3D sound stage. The response is smooth as silk and they dig deeper than I expected when I listen in “pure direct”, no sub. They absolutely are great with voices, must be great crossovers. I have the back of them just under 20” from the wall, about 8.5 ft apart. I sit a few inches over 9 feet away. No listener fatigue ever, unlike the Klipsch I used to own, they were a bit edgy. I would recommend these whole heartedly!

New to Canton

Im building a theater room, 20 wide x 24 Length. Accessories 4 less just suggested I use the Canton 505.2 for the Front LEFT CENTER and RIGHT speakers for my theater room. Its a dedicated movie room. What do you guys think of this selection. Are these speakers going to make me smile?

Room will have 3 rows of seating, Projector/Screen, 7.2.4 Atmos

They have the right idea about having the same 3 speakers across the front. I don't see a 505.2 on their site. Did you mean the 502.2 bookshelf speakers? or if floor standing speakers the 507.2?

It looks to be a very large room. Do you have a great sub or two to help with the low end? This is one of the most important parts of a HT.

They will put a smile on your face but with such a large room I hope you are not going for reference level sound.

What is your budget?
What are you going to power them with?
Have you decided on the rest of the speakers and if so what are they?

Canton Chrono 505.2 is the speaker he recommended for all three front speakers in my home theater. It is a large room, system will be powered by a Denon receiver. I won't be listening to music in the theater room. Do you think these speakers will fill enough mid to low sound for that size of room or should I do the Left and Right channels in a Tower from Canton. I am not familiar with Canton so I just need to hear I am better off with them than Polk or Klipsch RP or something. I would love to spend $1000 or so for the front 3 channels of my surround sound if I can do it.

I will be using 2 12" subwoofers with this system.

Rear surrounds, side speakers would be Canton in wall/in ceiling speakers.
