Default Reference 7K Review

About time. JA at Stereophile has a pair of Ref 7K in for review. The speaker I'm most interested in as an upgrade from my Ref 9K. Hopefully, he will find they play well with 20-30wpc of Class A power.

Have only read one review of the smaller end of Canton's Reference line, which was the Ref 8K from someone in Australia, and he loved them.

Good to know, Glenn... Usually for Cantons more power, just open up, if make sense. This is what I find, after four Cantons.

My experience is that 20wpc of Class A trumps everything else I've used (up to 250wpc - Accuphase, McIntosh & Bryston) with my 9Ks.

Glenn...
Okay, I have not heard class A amps. The best ones in my room, Mcintosh MC352 and now MC501's, and the 501 is way better in every spec.
You don't think, the 7K is going to almost of the same? I would think Canton 5k going to be a really much better (size of room probably matter to!?).

Sensitivity is rated at 88.5db. Not the most efficient for 20 watts IMHO.
