Canton - Reference 3k - Tower Speaker (Pair) (Demo Unit)
With the Reference K Canton has developed a speaker that sets new standards in its class. Every detail is meticulously thought out and all speaker components represent the utmost in acoustic and technical quality, guaranteeing maximum listening pleasure and long service life.
The membranes of the K Series are manufactured in an elaborate process. Up to 20% of the existing molecular structure of the aluminium cone is transformed into a ceramic structure and refined with tungsten particles. The result is a membrane with an optimum ratio of rigidity to weight and improved inner damping.
The acoustically optimised cabinet with its organic curved baffle offers significantly improved dispersion characteristics. The solid construction of high quality 50mm (1.97") multi-layer laminate sets new standards in terms of stability. The characteristic bow shape of the cabinet is created from solid material in a special process.
"Float like a butterfly… the quite voluminous Canton Reference 3K floorstanding speaker displayed this characteristic effortlessly.
This speaker is a textbook example of a universal talent. The Germans are also known for a very solid bass foundation. Fine details and resolutions are also attributes that many music lovers associate with the brand."
Michael Lang, Stereo, March (full review here)
The crossovers discreetly separate the bass, mid-range and treble ranges. Only selected components with no tolerance are used in the manufacture of their low-resonance circuit boards. Here it is not just a matter of separating an audio signal but also of creating sounds.
The floorstanding speakers of the Reference K Family operate with the new Bass-Guide® bass reflex system. Vibrations are directed away from the cabinet and flow noise is reduced. The usable inner volume of the speaker is maximised while the external dimensions remain the same and there is greater flexibility in the set-up location. The distance from walls or corners no longer has much impact.
Cabling is reduced to a minimum. The cables themselves are specially developed for the Reference K loudspeakers. The design, with its special core and six twisted individual conductors per phase, ensures optimum sound transmission from the connection terminal to the chassis.
The elegant, high gloss, “piano finish” surface is applied and polished in a 12-stage process. It gives the cabinets of the Reference K Series a sensation of extraordinary depth. Acoustically optimised, two-part fabric covers with magnetic fastenings complete the exclusive look.
