Canton Karat 790 DC

Naturalness and precision: the Canton karat 790 DC

  2. Data sheet

The k-series is not only a bestseller in the Canton program, she was also a trend with their appearance: very slim, elegant shiny standing speakers gain their bass control over lateral woofer. The new karat 790 DC fits one as well in the picture, it looks like its predecessor 709 like an egg. What remains is also the side paper bass in a 25-centimeter format, which wants to make “untenrum” with the rear pipe of the reflex for the correct steam. So that the membrane uncontrollably emits no sound to the page, the tones are referenced already exceeding 180 Hertz on the midrange – at this frequency, even the great bass exudes roughly around.

The 13-centimeter twins on the narrow front work in contrast to the previous models is not at the same rate: the unusual name “3.5 ways” can be found In the data sheet. Of the two aluminum midrange on the baffle, so only one plays up to the tweeter, the other is hidden from 400 hertz. This technique extends the vertical angle and prevents effectively above and below the tweeter axis scarf louse deletions, which one would have to worry about an arrangement known as a “D ‘ D’appolito design” midrange tweeter midrange. The tweeter is Canton on its proven aluminum manganese Dome, which recognized high end in the superior Vento reference 1 their service does. She plays on a sound leadership, which under the keyword “Directivity control” restricts the viewing angle and thus reduces edge such as room reflections, but not in free space. The superb quality of paintwork inherited the 790er of the big sister.

Hearing test

The canton could shine with an open, natural and geographic sovereign representation of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra (AUDIO CD “pure music 3”), where she was an almost photo-realistic Lucullan sound image in the listening room. Sounds altogether smaller and slimmer, but homogeneous creamy depicting the box was completely forget that several drivers at work. She loosely balanced apparent opposites: reproduce plausible space without sacrificing the positioning of individual instruments, serve the listener details, without overloading him thus, kept track of the tonality as on the dynamics. In short: a box, which knew the advantages to elegantly combine by big and small also optically as acoustically suited to many different environments.
