Canton Debuts New LE 200 -Series Loudspeakers

Consisting of a three-way tower, a horizontal center channel, and a bookshelf monitor.

MINNEAPOLIS (9/10/03) - - Canton has expanded its popular value - and style - conscious LE line with the new 200 series home theater loudspeakers, consisting of a three -way tower, a horizontal center channel, and a bookshelf monitor. Designed and manufactured by Canton from the ground up, the models each feature the same driver components and acoustic signature to deliver a clear and seamless soundstage for multi -channel movies and music.


The LE 207 is a three -way tower speaker that employs a 1 -inch fabric tweeter, and two identical five -inch polypropylene drivers, one handling bass and the other midrange duties. The speaker boasts a frequency response of 40 Hz - 26 kHz yet maintains a narrow footprint, making it ideal for use as either a front L/R home theater speaker, or in a dedicated stereo system. The LE 207 has a suggested retail price of $799 per pair.

The two -way LE 202 bookshelf speaker features a single woofer and tweeter, and delivers clear and accurate reproduction from 48 Hz to 26 kHz. These speakers are ideal for mounting on bookshelves, in home entertainment centers, or atop the company's attractive LS -65 speaker stand. The LE 202 has a suggested retail price of $399 per pair.

The LE 205 CM features a pair of five -inch polypropylene woofers horizontally flanking the one -inch fabric tweeter in a sealed enclosure, giving it exceptional midbass linearity for dialogue reproduction. Intended primarily for use as a center -channel speaker, it is magnetically shielded for placement near video displays and boasts a frequency response of 48 Hz - 26 kHz. The LE 205 CM has a suggested retail price of $399 each.

The Canton LE 200 -series is currently available in either silver matte, or the LE line's signature Beech/Silver bicolor finish.
