Product Description

Color: Cherry

Product Description

Canton's Ergo 690 DC is a three-way floorstanding speaker. Able to handle up to 320 watts, each cherry-veneered enclosure houses two 8-inch aluminum wave surround woofers, a 7-inch aluminum wave surround midrange driver, and a 1-inch aluminum-manganese tweeter. The Ergo 690 DC features DC technology, which allows the speaker to provide sharp, precise bass reproduction at much lower frequencies than can be attained with conventional crossover designs.

Ergo: Timeless Design, the Latest Technology, and Genuine Audiophile Performance

Canton Ergo Series
Patented wave surround guarantees optimal sound

Canton Ergo Series
Canton sets new standards in craftsmanship

Anyone looking for true audiophile performance need look no further than the Ergo Series. The fundamental building block with the oldest lineage in the entire Canton family has been refined over the years and enhanced with the latest technology. But their basic character remains the same.

Visually, Ergo speakers offer high quality, real wood veneers, solid wood rounded edges and the classic driver configuration of tweeters and midrange drivers at the top, powerful woofers below, and a forward facing bass reflex port.

Canton Ergo Series
Exclusive ADT Tweeters

The Ergo series utilizes Canton's ADT aluminum manganese alloy tweeter. This tweeter has a unique one-piece dome and voice coil former for extended linear frequency response and high power handling.

Wave Surround

Aluminum cone woofers and midrange drivers utilize Canton's patented "wave surround". The wave surround allows for very high excursion levels while maintaining linearity. The result is deep, controlled bass and smooth, accurate midrange.

Real Wood Veneer and Metal Grilles

All models in the Ergo series are finished in real wood veneers with solid wood rounded corners. Ergo models are equipped with acoustically transparent perforated metal grilles that provide added protection for the speakers without getting in the way of your music.

Perfect for Both 2-Channel Stereo and Full Home Cinema

The Ergo series offers a range of sizes and is ideal for both two-channel stereo and full home theater solutions. Ergo is Canton's classic series--an up to date evolution of their earliest aesthetic. Ergo keeps the strengths of Canton's traditional stereo roots, with a modernized design that lets it breathe life into your favorite movies and music.

Color Name: Cherry
I have had the Canton Ergo 690 DC speakers for a month or so and words cannot fully describe how happy I am with them. They are the perfect fusion of great sound and beautiful aesthetics. I have them paired with a Pioneer Elite SC-37 receiver which isn't the best when it comes to hi-fi sound quality yet the speakers sound amazing. Bass is taught and full but not overbearing. The highs are perfect and detailed without being harsh. The midrange is accurate and voices sound authentic. I have several pairs of very nice speakers, such as Celestion Ditton 66, Celestion Ditton 662, Infinity RS3, Canton Ergo 70, KEF iQ1, DCM TF1000, Acoustic Research AR-9 (Teledyne version) to name a few and these Cantons are my favorite.

I haven't heard many modern high end speakers though so take my opinion with a grain of salt but they sure sound better (to me) than all the vintage speakers I have owned and listened to.
