ACOUSTIQUE QUALITY CANTO 5 LOUDSPEAKER PAIR
PROVEN SONIC ACCURACY
AQ CANTO is a new line of AQ speakers born from the combination of traditional Czech wood bending technologies with Acoustique Quality's rich experience. The knowledge AQ have gained over the past 30 years of speaker design, development, and production has greatly benefited the new Canto designed products. The result is speakers that not only guarantee an impressive sonic experience, but also delight fans of mature aesthetics and elegance. Great sound, refined design, ecological approach and development and production in the Czech Republic, all this is represented by the new line of AQ CANTO speakers. The innovative design combining a rigid MDF frame with a 3D shaped beech shell has made it possible to achieve an uncompromising and environmentally sustainable cabinet design.
The use of a beech shell bent in three axes made it possible to increase the rigidity of the body and reduce material consumption to a minimum. In addition, the shell contains only a fraction of the adhesive and the sealant components normally required for traditional cabinet construction. AQ CANTO are thus the most environmentally friendly speakers.
Custom drive units and crossover components, which are manufactured specially for AQ by the Danish company SB ACOUSTICS, also play an important role. The listener will certainly appreciate the strong and controlled bass, precisely mastered mids and clear highs full of fine details. Impressive visual contrast is provided by the state-of-the-art 6" mid-bass driver with white ceramic surface. Nothing is self-serving and the sleek organic slim shape enabled by more than 130 yr. old wood bending technology The elegance and benefits of the technology can be felt even before the speakers play their first note.
AQ CANTO 5 Audiophile two-way column speakers are based on proven solutions that give the speakers their unrivaled accuracy and ability to reproduce music the way its authors intended. Extreme precison is used internally connecting individual parts which are hand-soldered with component-by-component technology completely eliminating the use of any push-on type connectors. Externally, there are high-quality screw-type speaker terminals, which not only allow standard simple connection, but also support Bi-wire or Bi-amp connection. The very rigid bent beech shell baffle is equipped with a specific 6" mid-bass driver with a ceramic-coated aluminum diaphragm and 3D recesses. This composite diaphragm design results in an extremely low weight and high rigidity, which makes the speaker very fast and accurate. The tweeter with a 1" textile top seated in a solid aluminum waveguide easily plays even the subtlest nuances of the sound. The result is a maximally faithful and dynamic sound that convinces with its entertainment, rich musical details and great rendering of the space. The AQ CANTO 5 baffle also uses built-in sand chambers at the bottom, which are used to absorb unwanted resonances. The sound presentation is thus more accurate and detailed, even in demanding passages with a strong bass undertone. Thanks to the use of a combination of innovative and traditional technologies, the AQ CANTO 5 speakers set a new sound performance reference in their price category and elevate the listening experience to an unprecedented level.
