Smart Townus 8

We are proud to present our brand new loudspeaker series "Townus", with which we would like to appeal to all people for whom timeless design and high-quality appeal are important. In reference to the roots and the location of our company headquarters, in the middle of the Hessian Taunus, we have created the same sounding name Townus for the new loudspeaker models. The newly created Townus series captivates with its timeless, elegant design and its high-quality materials - ideal for urban people who value design and quality. In the word creation Townus, we also refer to the connection between the modern and pulsating life in a town and the rather quiet and rural Taunus, where the creators of this timeless and modern speaker series have their origins.


Our Smart Townus 8 makes it easy for you: You can connect whatever your hi-fi heart desires to the numerous inputs. For this purpose, analogue connections are available in high-quality XLR and Cinch versions, in addition to the digital variants in optical and coaxial design. A USB input with XMOS enables contact with computers and, of course, our Smart Townus 8 can stream music in the best quality wirelessly via Bluetooth with aptX. We include a selection of cables so you can start listening to music right away at home. Thanks to the smart features of the Smart Townus 8, you can expand the floorstanding speakers with additional Smart speakers from Canton - for example, with the compact Smart Townus 2. In this way, you can build a high-sounding home cinema set in single-room operation or integrate your Smart Townus 8 as an excellent-sounding member in a Multiroom system.

Townus 8

With the Smart Townus 8, we present the latest member of our large Smart family. In the same design as the passive Townus models, the smart variant with its extensive equipment and the best technical ingredients will cause enthusiasm. The Smart Townus 8 scores points with its timeless elegance, outstanding build quality and, of course, its excellent sound characteristics. This makes the slim Smart Townus 8 floor-standing speakers the ideal playing partner for anyone looking for speakers that are visually unobtrusive, but that are the measure of all things in terms of sound. The fully active Smart Townus 8 are equipped with powerful amplifiers that provide 350 watts of power to each floorstanding speaker. This eliminates the need for external amplifiers and speaker cables. Simply place them in the desired location, connect the power cable and the external player, and you're ready to enjoy listening in your home. The wireless signal transmission with 24-bit signal processing between the speakers ensures music reproduction of the highest quality.


The elegant Smart Townus 8 impress with excellent sound performance in all situations. To achieve this, we use two potent woofers with 154 mm double cones made of titanium in the optimally dimensioned cabinet volume. These woofer specialists are complemented by a 154 mm midrange driver and the high-resolution tweeter with 25 mm aluminium oxide ceramic and transmission front plate for excellent dispersion. The quartet of speakers is powered by a precision-tuned Class D amplifier with 350 watts of power per speaker. Our wave surround technology, the very solidly built cabinets with internal bracing and the strategically placed damping material keep sound-damaging resonances away from these speakers. The screwless Diamond-Cut aluminium rings of the drivers used are not only a visual highlight - they also increase the stability of the tweeter, midrange and woofer.

& Teamplayer

You can use the Smart Townus 8, quite classically, as a stereo speaker and combine it as you wish with other speakers from the Canton Smart family. In this way, you can create a 4.0 home cinema system in no time at all, without any wiring. The centre channel is created virtually, with precise dialogue reproduction and the best speech intelligibility from the mids. Canton's rigid Titanium Double Cone cones not only ensure a tidy appearance, they also guarantee dynamic bass reproduction with the highest precision and best timing. With the Smart Connect 5.1, you can expand your system almost at will: make your Smart Townus 8 the main speaker of a multi-channel surround system and supplement it with additional speakers from our Smart series. In this way, you can expand your personal home cinema step by step up to a 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos configuration - for impressive film sound from all directions.
