    Whilst visiting and listening to some equipment at my local AV shop today, I asked about Canton and Elac speakers, only to be told that they were one and the same, came out of the same factory, and comprised of the exactly the same drivers etc.

    Is this true?

    They look very similar to me, and priced similarly as well.

    The Elac F20 Floorstanding Speakers look the same a the CD100, different base.

    The Elac Cinema 1 Satellite Speaker looks the same as the CD10.

    Mornin'

    Who ever said that they were one in the same and that the driver units were manufactured in the same plant is nonsense, Canton have always prided themselves on manufacturing their own drivers and the workmanship/build quality on their speakers is worldly acclaimed.

    Look closely at the drive units of both manufacturers and you'll see that they're not the same at all.

    Canton hold 34% of the market share in Germany and Elac hold 4%!!!
