    Vandersteen Audio KĒNTO Carbon Loudspeaker
    - Extraordinary Cohesiveness!

    Equipment report
    by Andre Jennings

    My TAS Equipment Report of the Vandersteen Audio KĒNTO Carbon Loudspeaker is now online here:
    Vandersteen Audio Kento Carbon Loudspeaker - The Absolute Sound


    "Vandersteen Audio says that “early measurements and listening show this speaker’s performance will equal a good part of the Model Seven Mk II’s, and [that it is] a significant step forward with its new proprietary technological features.”

    "The sound of the Kento Carbon is, first and foremost, extraordinarily cohesive—completely of-a-piece. It takes little effort to be convinced you are listening to realistically reproduced music."

    The Model Seven was the most realistic reproduced presentation of music I have heard...with the ancillary components. If the Kento comes close it's a speaker I would aspire to drive.

      The first quote I printed above by Vandersteen Audio is on the money in terms of equaling a good part of the Seven and significant step forward.
