Canton Reference 5.2 DC

Introduction

Back in mid-2005, I auditioned Canton's new Vento line of speakers with an entire surround package, (although the matching sub had yet to be released). I found them impeccably designed and crafted, while sounding outstanding. Almost four years later trickle-up theory prevailed and Canton introduced the flagship 3.2 DC floor standing speaker based on the design success of the Vento. Although just the beginning, Canton's accomplishment with the 3.2 (a monster speaker weighing over 100 lbs and standing almost 4 feet tall) led them to fill in the line, one of which is the slightly smaller 5.2 DC.
