    Wow not much info out there. I think from the Canton website they are the same as the 902DC not bad.

    22 kg doesn't seem like too much weight for a speaker w/ that many drivers of that size. Not sure if it actually speaks to its quality, but that stood out to me.

    I used to sell them years ago and always liked the Canton sound. I don't know about the 20hz rating though. I am considering a pair locally as well.

    Don't have experience with the Canton's. But I always regretted not buying a minty pair of cherry veneer Linn Keilidh's 7 years ago for $500.

    No I did not. Don't know if they are still available. But 2 weeks ago pick up a pair of ADS L690 from the local Goodwill for $14.00 a pair and they are good. Also yesterday there was a pair of Polks R50 but they wanted 70.00 for the pair I did not get those ones.

    I just bought a pair and have about 10 minutes of listening time with them. Midrange seemed a little lacking on them. With a little furtherinspection, I noticed that neither midrange was playing. I pulled them out and measured them and both were reading aout 1.5 ohms. Does that seem right?

    Everything else seems to be ok, but I have not inspected them any further.

    The cabinets do need some work also.

    Does anyone have a source for Canton replacement parts?

    I am looking for the midranges for the Ergo 90's.
