New Canton Townus and Smart Townus Introduced at Axpona


Canton Townus 90 LoudspeakersBuffalo, NY, April 14, 2023 — Bluebird Music, distributor of high-performance audio products since 2000, is pleased to announce the availability of the new Canton Townus loudspeakers and Smart Townus wireless active loudspeakers.

The new Townus series is Canton’s most affordable range of loudspeakers. Townus loudspeakers feature elegant enclosures and fine surfaces with harmonious proportions, rounded cabinet edges and elegant screwless integration of the drivers into the slim baffle. Flawless surfaces in silk matt or high-gloss lacquers as well as fine real wood veneers underline the premium claim of the new Townus speaker series.

Townus cabinets are solidly built and reinforced with substantial internal bracing. They feature strategically placed damping material inside the cabinets, selected high-quality crossover components and high-quality internal cabling. The downward firing bass reflex port contributes to the speakers’ accurate, tight, deep bass and makes the speakers less demanding of in-room placement. The rounded cabinet edges also improve the sound dispersion.

Townus mid and bass drive units are made from Canton’s proprietary titanium diaphragms and feature Canton’s low distortion double cone design, patented Dispersion Control and Wave Bending technology. These technologies combine to produce drive units that do not deflect at low frequencies and remain well-controlled by even modest amplifiers. Townus loudspeakers produce excellent dynamics and remain composed and preserve the music’s dynamic contrasts even at high sound levels and thus deliver a musical performance rarely found in loudspeakers at their price points.

Canton‘s tried-and-tested 25 mm dome tweeter made of aluminum oxide ceramic shines with its detailed, accurate sweet natural sound. A precisely calculated tweeter waveguide provides for ideal sound radiation and optimizes the speaker’s reproduction up to 40,000 Hertz.

The product range consists of: Townus 90 floorstander priced at $3,495 US, Townus 30 stand mount speaker at $1,495, Townus 50 center channel at $895, Townus 10 on wall at $1,095 and the Townus 12 subwoofer at $1,995. Standard finishes are high-gloss black lacquer or a silk-matt white. A natural walnut real wood veneer finish is also available for a small upcharge.
