Although the name sounds like something that hails from the far East, Canton is actually a German company, founded over 40 years ago by four Hi-Fi enthusiasts. They decided to call the company Canton because their aim was to produce loudspeakers that would recreate the musical clarity of a live performance and Canton is a combination of the Latin word 'cantare' (to sing) and the German word 'Ton' (pure musical tone). 

Four decades on, the company manufactures a huge range of top quality speakers and has a world-wide reputation amongst audiophiles. In this country, Canton faces stiff competition from home-spun rival speaker manufacturers, but has achieved phenomenal success recently with a top selling range of soundbases and in-ceiling speakers.
