[Canton] Smart GLE 5

Active and wireless For music and movie

We have added another model to the smart GLE portfolio: the Center Smart GLE 5. The active center speaker is a perfect match for our Smart GLE 9 floorstanding speakers and Smart GLE 3 compact speakers, and can also be combined with all other models in our large Smart family and used as the center of a powerful home theater system. With 350 watts of power from the integrated Class D amplifier, the Smart GLE 5 centre is well suited to keep up dynamically with floor-standing speakers and to deliver the very best speech intelligibility in all situations.


It fits everywhere

Our Smart GLE 5 with its visually discreet design blends harmoniously into any living room ambience. The attractive centre is available with a white foiled housing and white painted baffle. Alternatively, the ash black-foilled housing with black lacquered front is available. Would you prefer to hide the attractive technology? No problem - simply place the sound-transparent fabric baffle in front of the speakers and enjoy the excellent sound.


Always at the centre

Once you have found an optimal location for the 45.5 x 17.5 x 31 cm (17.9” x 6.9” x 12.2”) centre, for example on a rack underneath the TV, all you have to do is: connect it to the power supply and connect it to a source or other smart speakers - that's it! Numerous inputs in analog and digital design are available. Add to that the ability to stream music via Bluetooth or connect a computer to the USB port. The best possible sound quality is ensured by apt-X decoding, XMOS certification and balanced XLR audio inputs.
