Smart GLE 9 S2

Welcome to the Smart world

Our latest member of the ever-growing Smart family is called Smart GLE 9 and fits perfectly into Canton's smart portfolio. The attractive cabinet has a restrained, elegant design: Lacquered fronts and white or black foiled cabinets give the Smart GLE 9 a high-quality exterior. And as always with Canton, these attractively priced speakers are also superbly crafted. Place the floorstanding speakers in your living room, plug them into a wall socket and feed them musical or cinematic fare from any source device. We've given the Smart GLE 9 numerous inputs: from analogue connections in XLR or RCA versions and digital variants in coaxial or optical design, to the USB interface with XMOS for computers and wireless playback via Bluetooth with apt-X, everything is on board. We pack a selection of cables in the loudspeaker boxes so that you can start listening to music or watching films at home immediately after purchase.

 

Unbeatable price/performance ratio

The brand-new Smart GLE 9 contains the musical and technical genes from our bestsellers of the GLE series. At an enticingly low price, we offer a full-grown pair of floorstanding speakers with up-to-date technology and the most advanced features of our Smart speakers. Four sound and power drivers are distributed across the slim baffle, which rises 107 centimetres into the air. Thanks to the narrow housing width of only 21 centimetres, the Smart GLE 9 remains extremely living space-friendly. We integrate a powerful amplifier module with 350 watts of power into each speaker. As a result, you no longer need external amplifiers and, as soon as you have connected a source to one of the many inputs, you can immediately start listening to music and movies. Whether classic wired or modern wireless is entirely up to you.

 

Convincing sound in all registers

This is ensured by our high-quality midrange and bass drivers made of aluminium and the great tweeter dome made of aluminium-manganese. Bass power, dynamics and pressure are delivered by the two 192 mm woofers in the large bass reflex volume, which is supported by an optimally tuned bass reflex channel. Computer simulations resulted in our multi-curved wave beads, which allow for a large excursion and show less partial oscillation at high frequencies. As a result, our Smart GLE 9 achieves very high sound pressure levels without sound distortion. The 25 mm tweeter offers best dispersion characteristics due to its Transmission Front Plate and its sound-optimized metal grille.

 

Diving into virtual worlds

The Smart GLE 9 speakers are great entertainers. They sound stunningly good as a stereo pair when playing music and take their listeners into virtual worlds at the touch of a button. The Smart GLE 9 can handle multi-channel sound formats and, when connected to a TV, become a powerful home cinema system - Virtual Surround makes it possible. Thanks to the scrolling display on the front of the speakers, you are always informed about the operating modes. And with other Smart models, you can set up an outstanding 4.0 home cinema system in no time at all, virtually reproducing the centre channel for optimum dialogue intelligibility.
