3D upgrade
for your home theater

Our Dolby Atmos Enabled Speakers AR-8 are technically and visually perfectly matched to the speakers in the new Vento series. Their basic shape with gently curved side walls and rounded cabinet edges corresponds to the Vento models, so that the AR-8 harmoniously complements our floor-standing and compact speakers. The AR-8s are equipped with our newly developed high-end drivers with titanium graphite diaphragms and our tweeters with aluminum oxide ceramics, which have been optimized for optimum sound quality. In addition, low-loss wave surrounds, tightly toleranced crossover components and solidly constructed cabinets ensure the unique Canton sound. The AR-8 can be used universally: as top speakers for your home cinema system or as stereo and effect speakers that can be hung on a wall. Elegant, magnetically adhering fabric covers perfectly complement the Canton AR-8s, which are available in the elegant lacquer finishes High Gloss black and High Gloss.

First and foremost:
our technology

In the closed housing of the Dolby Atmos Enabled Speaker AR-8, the 154 mm bass-midrange driver with titanium graphite cone, clamped in the triple-folded wave surround, reproduces precise bass and finely resolved mids. The top-class 25 mm dome tweeter made of aluminum oxide ceramic perfectly complements the bass-midrange driver with its detailed and accurate sound image. The cabinet of the AR-8 is elaborately constructed from multi-layer laminate, making it very solid and resistant to resonances that affect the sound. 24-carat gold-plated screw terminals for cable cross-sections of up to 10 mm² ensure long-term stable contact.


The compact AR-8 surface-mounted and wall-mounted speakers are timelessly elegant thanks to their gently curved side walls and rounded cabinet edges. Thanks to their harmonious proportions, they are ideal as universal top-mounted speakers for our Vento floor-standing and compact loudspeakers. The closed AR-8 two-way loudspeakers with their immaculate lacquered surfaces in a high-gloss finish make a stunning impression - they are a real asset to your home cinema system in any living environment. The integrated wall bracket enables quick and easy wall mounting. This means they can be used unobtrusively as high-quality stereo or effect speakers. A black, flat and acoustically neutral fabric cover is included with the system. It adheres magnetically and, if desired, conceals a direct view of the technology.

Even better
as a team

Are you looking for the ultimate movie experience within your own four walls - with effects from all directions? Our speakers make it possible! The attractive AR-8s harmonize perfectly with all models in the new Vento family, both visually and technically. Put together a highly dynamic and powerful multi-channel system that meets all your requirements for sound quality and level stability with playful ease. For example, our Vento 90, combined with the Vento 50 center and Vento 30 surround speakers, create an excellent home cinema system with immense power reserves. The set is perfected by our Vento Sub 12, which enhances the home cinema experience with market-shaking bass.
