What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Canton GLE 45 loudspeakers

GLE series loudspeakers from Canton

Canton's new GLE loudspeakers represent a level of performance in respect to size that is, as far as is known, unequaled by any other designs.

The technical advances and creative thought behind their development is apparent the moment you hear them. Indeed, their unexampled realism and innate musicality could only be exceeded by the original performance.

The series is composed of six models - three 2-way systems GLE 40, GLE 40F, GLE 45  and three 3-way units, GLE 50, GLE 60 and GLE 70. all six bear an unmistakable family resemblance, not only in appearance, but in sound quality as well.

Among their more notable characteristics and features are high power handling capacity, extended high frequency response (up to 30,000 Hz), new pressure cast aluminum woofer frames and removable metal grilles.

In addition, the GLE series loudspeakers all make use of a new concept in the design of frequency dividing networks that insures equeal energy response across the entire audio spectrum, as well as a seamless transition from driver to driver.

All models are available in genuine walnut veneer, matte white and matte black finishes.
