“Welcome home” you would like to call to ERGO 695 of Canton, because it is the current version of a classic, which predecessor and sister models are much thousands in German living rooms.

The Interior has updated Germany’s largest maker of boxes several times in over 25 years, design and the basic form but have hardly changed. Membrane surfaces and volume (gross over 100 l) come from a time in which large chassis rather than harassment were perceived, rather than guarantee of authentic sound pictures.

Today like many smaller chassis for more or less living room suitable for dynamic values and meet the housing, but thanks to the recent facelift, the ERGO chassis are just bigger like that of the visually more modern Carat models now distortion similar to arm and long stroke side. And efficiency and level assets benefit from them equally.

The result is a kind of Wolf in sheep’s clothing, which easily can take on many P.a. speakers, which spared the rustic felt mats or construction site look its user but that is now common in the professional field.

In fact, less is the ERGO 695 only approximately 3 decibels sensitive than visually uneven bully Cerwin Vega. Mathematically, already 200 watts amplifier power meet the 695 to unleash volume close to 110 decibels. For a HiFi cabinet with stroke linear frequency response and pleasantly wide listening area an enormous power, especially in this price range.

Punchy and dynamically at any time sweeping processed the ERGO 695 pop discs of the grainy variety, as the 91-successful album “Joyride” the Swedish pop band Roxette, whose bass – and Synthiewogen also become popular to be used, to really drive the beads of sweat on the membranes boxes.

Even the Beefy Canton smooth by hand, although all but More flat and More distant sounded about the new Chrono SL 580, which clearly drew the short straw in the full throttle range than more modern models, went softer fare, as you audiophiles generally prefer.
