Karat
GS Edition

A legend returns

The anniversary model of the Karat floorstanding speaker remains true to its line from 2002 and also delivers the special feature of the side-mounted woofer chassis in the newly designed version. Equipped with black ceramic tungsten technology in the midrange and bass-midrange and an ceramic tweeter system, the speaker passes any sonic challenge. The Karat GS Edition impresses with audiophile Canton sound and with high dynamics in all frequency ranges. Limited to 1972 pairs, the speakers are available in the matte lacquer finishes White, Black and Dusty Green.

WBT Nextgen
Terminals

The GS Edition loudspeakers are equipped with particularly contact-friendly connection terminals from the manufacturer WBT. The WBT-nextgen terminals accept crimped cable ends up to 6 mm² as well as cable lugs and banana plugs. As low-mass terminals, they not only ensure permanent contact, they also guarantee true-to-the-original signal transmission and authentic sound experiences. And the biwiring/ biamping design opens up the possibility of using different amplifiers or optimised cables for the low-frequency and mid-high ranges.

Magnetic
Fabric Cover

The high-quality and acoustically neutral fabric covers in black conceal the direct view of the technology when required and adhere elegantly to the baffles via magnetic fastening.

Ceramics Tungsten
BLACK EDITION

The GS Edition speakers are equipped with the best material for diaphragms that we know: Ceramic Tungsten. This material is manufactured by us at the Canton factory in a complex manufacturing process. In the process, we convert 20 percent of the molecular structure of an aluminium cone into a ceramic structure and refine it with tungsten particles. The result is a diaphragm with an optimal stiffness-to-weight ratio, improved internal damping and a warm sound colour. As a special feature and unique selling point, the speaker drivers newly developed for the GS Edition are coloured black throughout. This makes them unique in our large speaker portfolio.

New
Design

We are reviving a classic with the Karat GS. The floorstanding speaker combines a simple Bauhaus design with state-of-the-art technology. As a highlight, the Karat GS is available in a futuristic Dusty Green in addition to the standard colours black and white.
