Canton Vento Reference 5 DC Speakers ($10,000) on Ultra Audio

Monday, September 1, 2008

Ultra Audio, a site that focuses on the high-end of the hi-fi spectrum, has reviewed the Canton Vento Reference 5 DC speakers ($10,000/pair) and designated them a “Select Component.” Here’s an excerpt of what reviewer Albert Bellg had to say about these “delicious” German floorstanders:

Few of the audio components that have come through my listening room have given me as much pleasure. There are many words to describe the 5 DC, but ultimately, it’s not about words. The musical food this speaker serves up is just delicious — sit back and enjoy.
