New Canton Vento

Canton's chief designer Frank Göbl proclaimed the new, improved Vento line "better—not a lot better, but significantly." What's new and improved?

The tweeters and midrange drivers, followed by the crossover, and, on the 807 and 809, the ports are now downward-firing rather than front-firing.

"I re-radiused the flare of the midrange driver," Gøbel explained. "This made the driver stiffer at the voice-coil and more compliant at the surround. The driver, technically speaking, is somewhat less pistonic at frequencies outside its range, but more linear within it.

"I also changed the surround for the tweeter, which affects dispersion. In fact, along with the crossover changes, the new Ventos are easy to place and sound more relaxed without any loss of detail."

Prices remain the same as for the older models.

My friend and I were recently discussing about how involved with technology our daily lives have become. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further develops, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.
