    I've heard of Canton speakers, but never actually heard them. Their ads regularly pepper Home Theater, Sound and Vision and The Perfect Vision. I've seen a couple of reviews for their products as well. If memory serves, they were the only other company to come out with aluminum speakers similar in shape to the Definitive Mythos speakers when they first came out. Now everyone is seemingly copying that design. The review of these speakers was high in praise. Not so sure of the wood speakers, but I'm sure they're worth a listen if you're in the market for new speakers.

    i've heard of them and heared the lowest line...

    Wasn't impressed at all.

    I think it's the LE line

    Supposedly, they are all rigourisly inspected/tested and so forth before being sold...oh well don't konw...

    one guy swore by them....another guy I know/and trust....hated them...

    I've heard a bunch of Canton, but haven't felt the need to own any.

    Ok,
    Anyone ever heard the Canton CT-120 (or CT-100 which are similar)?
    These are from around 88-89. Beautiful to behold at the very least. Not sure if the sonics live up to the build quality. Gonna try to give them a listen, but I already know the seller doesn't have electronics to match the speakers.
