What's your opinion coming to a choice between these two speakers? They are both now sold for very reasonable prices so I consider them both to be a bargain. I have heard them both several times before, although a couple of years ago or more, and I really liked them a lot. I have although never compared them side by side and don't now anywhere to do so either today since they are both at the end of their "life cycle". I have a Primare Pre30 + Vincent SP331 to feed them. I listen mainly to metal music, (death/black/goth/doom-metal preferably). I'm going crazy coming to a choice, I need help. Please do not leave me with any further option with a third brand..

I am from Sweden and my skills leaves pretty much to desire as far as the german language is concerned...Sorry for that! I thought asking in a german hifi forum would be a good idea with these two brands

Have you listen to both? Which sound would you prefer?

I can't really say. I remember Canton as very good in both, bass, middle and treble, detailed but still rather smooth. Heco on the other hand maybe a bit more vivid in style, a bit dryer bass. But as I said, it's been a while since I heard them. I do remember liking both speakers very much but time has erased my memory so I can't be more specific. That's why I need your help, your pros and cons as You see it.. Thereafter I might be more able to make a fair choice.

I do not want a speaker's sound to be too detailed in treble such as for example Dali Mentor as my musical taste suffers from bad production sometimes

The best is to try some speakers. Are you living in Germany or Sweden?

Sweden. My local HiFi dealer can offer me them but he won't bring both home for comparison. My feeling's to go for the Ergos if no one can advice me otherwise

Thats a problem in my eyes. I didn't know much about the market in Sweden. Canton is a well known brand, if you have no other chance to listen and test some other products: Buy them an be happy!

I listen mainly to metal music

Thought about a Klipsch? These should sound pretty good with Metal.

Yes! I've heard Klipsch. Not as detailed as I want my speakers to be. But still very inspiring speakers.

Which Klipsch have you heard?
Maybe an Elac or a Dali Ikon could be also right for you. But at least you have to like the speakers, i recommend you to go to an Hifi-Shop and hear so much speakers as you can with your music.
