The high-frequency response was superb, given the combination of Canton's ADT-25 tweeter and ICE amplifier module.
As expected, the Cantons had excellent off-axis response, even when seated 30 degrees horizontally off-axis.
The Cantons are obviously not designed to reproduce the bottom octave, as distortion is almost 5 percent, and the near harmonic overtones blur the signal.
At 50 Hz, the Cantons were struggling, both in increased distortion and difficulty reproducing a clean 50 Hz waveform.
But, at 1 kHz, distortion was less than a quarter percent.
And at 10 kHz, distortion was really low.
With their built-in IcePower amplifiers, the Canton's deliver solid performance even when
connected directly to the display or set-top box (plus the benefit of a high SAF based on its plug-and-play abilities). However, when paired with a
quality processor/receiver and a subwoofer, the Canton's are capable of
producing audiophile sound. Either way, they will make a very attractive
complement to any flat-panel display.
