Perfection
Down to the last detail

Immerse yourself in a new era of sound with the Reference series and let the speakers inspire you. The perfectly formed design, in line with "Form Follows Function", makes no compromises. Using the latest technologies, they are bursting with resolution and playfulness and offer excellent sound. The entire Reference series is manufactured in Germany with the utmost care and precision. This, together with the use of first-class materials and components, ensures long-lasting and reliable quality.

Innovative technology

The Canton Reference loudspeakers are the result of decades of research and development. With a variety of innovative technologies, these speakers set new standards in the audio world. The BC-tweeters with 25 mm cones made of black aluminium oxide ceramic ensure exceptional precision and clarity in the highs. Powerful, precise and agile bass is ensured by the newly developed woofer drivers with stiff cones made of black ceramic tungsten (BCT). The large midrange driver made of the same cone material is the perfect playing partner and delivers a highly accentuated sound image with enormous dynamic range.

Development of Reference

Production of Reference

The Reference series is characterised by precise craftsmanship. All Reference models are manufactured in Germany with the utmost care and precision. This and the use of first-class materials and components ensure long-lasting and reliable quality.

The development of the Reference Series is a feat of engineering and meets perfection in craftsmanship with the new design. The flawless finishes combined with our best speaker drivers make them a true musical statement. The intricately curved sidewalls, backs and lids provide enormous stability and significantly reduced self-resonance of the speaker enclosure. As a result, the speakers offer a very homogeneous dispersion and an authentic graduation of the music. The Reference Series features new BCT cones, which are equipped with black ceramic tungsten cones. These work in perfect harmony with the large cabinet volume and the efficient bass guide system. The BCT midrange driver, housed in its own cabinet, contributes to a natural and authentic sound image with finely resolved mids. The sound spectrum is rounded off by the 25 mm BC tweeter with black aluminium oxide ceramic cone, which ensures detailed and homogeneous highs. The cable runs of the specially produced Canto-Link 400 cables, inside the cabinets, are reduced to a minimum and ensure a perfect connection. All in all, the construction of the Reference Series is a harmonious interplay of technology and craftsmanship, providing a sonic experience of the highest order.

Enclosure and insulation

The construction of the Reference begins with the enclosure. Each enclosure is crafted with extreme precision and craftsmanship to ensure that it is absolutely vibration-free. This detail is crucial to minimising sound distortion and ensuring pure, unadulterated sound quality. The cabinets are filled with acoustically ideal damping materials that minimise standing waves inside and are prepared for internal wiring.

Technical components

In the second step, the enclosures are fitted with all technical components. For this purpose, the crossovers and connection terminals are inserted and the internal wiring is prepared. Finally, the drivers are inserted and connected to all internal components. After all components have been inserted, preparation for quality control takes place to ensure that each individual product meets the highest standards before it is ready for shipment to our customers.

Quality control

In the last step, the loudspeakers are tested for heart and kidney. The frequency response is measured, all connections are checked and the surface is meticulously inspected for the slightest damage. Only if a loudspeaker meets the best requirements does it receive a hand-signed quality certificate.
