"What a refreshingly honest blog about listening to music through hi-fi. So happy to see views based upon the enjoyment of music rather than so-called sound 'quality'." - Peter Comeau, Director of Acoustic Design at Mission / Wharfedale

Bristol Hifi Show 2020 - Highly Commended Award - Canton Smart System

The team at Canton were using a seriously expensive AVM CDP / streamer / DAC / pre-amp unit to feed their very compact little Smart Amp feeding the standmount speakers.  All-in the amp and speakers amount to a very reasonable £1450.  The system was detailed, punchy, lacking in harshness, but most of all musically engaging.  Stayed for a while listening to this one on both visits - great value for money.  The second year in a row when Canton have collected an award based on the sheer value for money of their offering.
