I noticed that the Canton Vento 826 is now available for only $600\/pr in either black or white. Even though they are not showing as "specials", this is the lowest price I have ever seen for these wonderful speakers! Both show as "almost sold out" so maybe they are just wanting to close out this item!\nAmong my speakers, these belong in the same "bucket" as my very best speakers - Focal Twin6 Be, Philharmonic BMR, and Martin Logan Vista which all cost over twice that amount (and that includes the great valued BMR-the others sold for 3 to 5 times that much). In all candor, these other three speakers do get my preference over the Cantons, but it take critical A-B comparison for me to make that determination and the Cantons do some things better than these!\nAt $600, pair these with a good sub and you have a very high SQ for a "song"! \nIn a smaller room, I would say a Rythmik L12 ($560-includes shipping within the continental US) would be a perfect mating. In a larger room Hsu ULS-15mk2 would be a good value.\nhttps:\/\/www.accessories4less.com\/make-a-store\/item\/cantvento826blka\/canton-vento-826-6-2-way-bookshelf-speaker-black-pair\/1.html\nhttps:\/\/www.accessories4less.com\/make-a-store\/item\/cantvento826whta\/canton-vento-826-6-2-way-bookshelf-speaker-white-pair\/1.html\nNote that the Chrono 6" model with the ceramic tweeter is $550, but at only $50 more, I would get the Vento with the curved cabinet.
