Vento—isn’t that one of the coffee size choices at Starbucks?
Being more of a Dunkin’ Donuts fan, I’m not really sure, but in this case it’s Vento as in a beautiful new addition to the Canton loudspeaker line of that name. Canton’s Vento Reference 9 DC is a two-way compact speaker in the German company’s flagship series.
This sleek speaker comes in silver or black hand-rubbed piano lacquer finish, so you’ll want to have it showcased in your media room. Add the optional LS-650 stand to make it really shine.
The cabinet itself is made from six layers of acoustically inert fiberboard that are pressure-laminated together, while the ADT-25 dome tweeter and improved driver magnet structure help produce the distortion-free, powerful and dynamic audio.
The Vento Reference 9 DC goes for $4,000 a pair.
