    CANTON REFERENCE SPEAKERS – HAND CRAFTED IN GERMANY

    Reference K Series

    The Reference K Series marks the beginning of a new age of sound. Characterised by the classic virtues of the Reference family, a constant drive for innovation and a focus on the fundamental elements of sound,
    it strives for ever greater perfection. A perfection that is achieved in an impressively practical way.
     

    Innovative driver technology

    The drivers of the Reference K Series have been comprehensively redesigned. To maximise their rigidity while maintaining optimum internal damping, the woofer and midrange cone drivers are now also fitted with a ceramic-tungsten membrane. Not only does this enhance their outward appearance, but it also ensures a precisely controlled swing-in and swing-out behaviour across the whole transmission range. The natural resonance is therefore always outside the transmission range.

     

    Ceramic-tungsten technology

    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 result is a membrane with an optimum ratio of rigidity to weight and improved inner damping.


    Solid cabinet design -

    The acoustically optimised cabinet with its organic curved baffle offers significantly improved dispersion characteristics. The solid construction of high quality 50 mm 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.


    Exclusive cabling -
    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.


    Bass-Guide -                  

    The floorstanding loudspeakers 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 loudspeaker 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. 


    Surfaces -                           

    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.
