Speakers - Canton Fonum 400
Picked up these German-made Canton Fonum 400 speakers at a flea market. No fleas, but some could be hiding in that front baffle material - yes, fellow audio enthusiasts, that's felt - Groovy Baby! These are 20 years old, and came with an MSRP of $750. These are pretty rare speakers, and I had to go to Audio Karma to find info on them. You can read the thread HERE.
How do they sound? Excellent. Uncolored, a bit bright, but hey - that's what tone controls are for, right? Terrific bottom end for their size. There's a port hiddin behind the felt and you can just make it out on the right front of the speaker between the woofer and midrange.
Any experience with Canton speakers? I'd like to hear your stories.
In the meantime, I'm gonna go crank some Boston on mine and wake up the neighbors :)
