Kanto YU6 Powered Bookshelf Speakers (with Bluetooth)

$750.00 $690.00

Satisfy your craving for powerful, full-impact sound with YU6. Armed with a formidable Class D amplifier pumping out 200W peak power, YU6 will have you questioning what it really means to be loud. Its 5.25” Kevlar® drivers and 1” silk dome tweeters inject detailed sound into every square inch of living space, evoking emotions that can only be expressed with an ear-to-ear grin. A built-in phono preamp makes it easy to spin your favorite tunes, while Bluetooth™ connectivity lets you keep the party going from the palm of your hand.

Peak Power: 200W
Amplifier: Class D
Tweeters: 1 inch Silk Dome
Woofers: 5.25″ Kevlar®
Frequency Response: 50 Hz – 20 kHz
Inputs Bluetooth™ with Qualcomm® aptX™, RCA with Phono Preamp Switch, AUX, 2 x TOSLINK (Optical)

 


I so enjoyed listening to this system with vinyl that I basically lost control. LPs fell off the shelves and spun themselves as if they had a will of their own.

 

 

I can’t recommend these speakers enough – they are the first set of powered speakers, other than the Mackie and Genelec, to which I’d give my listening seal of approval.

 

Overall the YU6 powered bookshelf speakers are very impressive, and combined with the Sub8 would be a great feature in a dedicated listening room.

Reviews

YU6 is forward-thinking product, one aimed squarely at younger music and movie enthusiasts that this hobby so desperately needs. The YU6 is truly modern speaker with a toe or two still dipped in the old-school….As far as I’m concerned, the YU6/Sub 8 combo is one of the best gateway audio systems I have ever seen or heard.

If you crave an ultra-immersive listening experience then the Kanto YU6 powered speakers were built just for you.

Review: Kanto Audio Speakers, An Immersive Listening Experience

 

 

 

 

 

 

I so enjoyed listening to this system with vinyl that I basically lost control. LPs fell off the shelves and spun themselves as if they had a will of their own.

If you’re looking to plug your turntable directly into a good-looking and functional pair of speakers, the Kanto YU6 will make it work—and sound great.

I can’t recommend these speakers enough – they are the first set of powered speakers, other than the Mackie and Genelec, to which I’d give my listening seal of approval.

 

WiFi HiFi Magazine (Dec 2017/Jan 2018)

These stereo Bluetooth speakers beat Apple HomePod and Google Home Max. If you care about the sound of your music or movies, the Kanto YU6 is a good reason not to buy a sound bar or smart speaker.

The Kanto YU6 is a very likable speaker that’s ideal for small to midsize rooms for enjoying music and movies, for a reasonable price.

Listed as one of the Best Powered Speakers to Pair With a Turntable. Perfect for a vinyl setup with space limitations.

All of the Kanto speakers are fun to listen to. They never hurt our ears with a screechy high end, glaring midrange, or boomy bass that plagues a lot of the other brands that we have tested and passed on. They are very true to the music!

The speakers really came alive when we went back to vinyl and spun up some classic Stevie Wonder. The bass & kick drum was tight & punchy, and the rest of the instruments visualized very well throughout the stereo field.

Overall the YU6 powered bookshelf speakers are very impressive, and combined with the Sub8 would be a great feature in a dedicated listening room.
