Kanto YU6 Powered Speakers, This Canadian company has cracked it!

Wish i’d bought these earlier. Taken pretty much everything i’ve thrown at them from heavy dub and electro to opera and indie on both vinyl and via bluetooth. The yu6’s have enough bass for most things. Having a lot of fun with these / pretty joyous to listen to.

I have spend thousands on hifi gear in separates like amps, dacs, streamers, cables, etc. All clutter and useless in today’s world where you have products like the yu 6 which can do it all and sound mighty impressive at the same time. Highly recommend these speakers to anyone who needs an elegant, minimalist, sublimely sounding solution. Sure kanto will put their prices up over the next few years. Tremendous value for money at this point.

Amazing sound, can’t say a bad thing about the speakers as of yet, but the only thing that does come to mind is the bluetooth will lose range if you leave the room and go behind a wall. It’s not the worse thing in the world but maybe a *newer smartphone with updated bluetooth in maybe link easier but other than that.

Comments from buyers

“Only just got them and I’m well impressed!
, Really great experience. Speakers do what they say they will
, Gloss white perfect speakers

Search ended when i saw these speakers which i play vynil through, blue tooth,, etc. Sound is very pure especially when playing vynil, pending on which turntable you play it through, mine is the lenco 175, amazing turntable check it out. The analogue sound is warm, true and the speakers project this sound at you with astonishing vynil sound. Also when playing digital music ie, cds, blue tooth etc the music is crystal, with many features including an excellent remote control for your personal sound preferences, you can control bass, treble, volume, and balance from the comfort of your armchair,. With a choice of sizes, colours, etc these speakers are very, very good, i’d say personally in the same class as bose, sonos, etc and at a cheaper price. Highly recommended for any choice of audio you wish to play these speakers are superb.

Only just got them and i’m well impressed. Speakers do feel premium (and heavy, haha) and sound great. They’re very easy to setup but you’ll need a bit of space around you so you don’t damage them while pulling them out the box. The remote is a bit big but i really like all the controls on it that let you handle just about anything: volume, mute, balance, bass, treble, input sources (another great asset for me as i have a few devices i listen to music on), bt pairing, track controls (prev, play/pause, next) for bt connected players. Sound adjustments are easy to reset using dedicated reset buttons, too. The built-in phono pre-amp doesn’t feel as good so i’m using a dedicated box, which seems to be giving me fuller lows and highs. I may give it another chance at some point. **update**been using these speakers for over a week now, the sound improved much after burning them in. And i got used to the built-in phono pre-amp as well.

I’ve been looking for some decent bluethooth speakers and i was hearing very good things about ‘kanto’ so i bought a pair of these the other day and i absolutely love them , perfect size , perfect colour and they sound amazing also the customer service from kanto was very helpful. I am really happy with these speakers the only downside is that they are a ‘bit pricey’.

Speakers do what they say they will. What impressed me the most was the customer experience i received from kanto. I had a problem with the remote that came with my speakers. I emailed them and got a brilliant reply withing 24hrs and had a new remote sent out to me as soon as it was clear this was the problem. Build quality appears solid. Sound is really nice (i am not an audiophile so cannot give an expert opinion on this) but they do what i want. I use them as speakers for my tv and it is a clear sound that can be punchy for films with lots of explosions and i like that i can up the treble for more dialogue driven films or shows where you want to follow the conversation. The yu6’s are much better than a sound bar for me. They come with a remote so you can change volume from the sofa but also have a bluetooth connection so i can play music from my phone if i want to use them as stereo speakers.

I purchased these, to replace my elesis elevate5, as the kanto have more ways to connect, i. Phono,aux, 2x optical,sub out, usb(charge only)i use these for the tv, when i can’t be bothered to fire up the main system, but will do computer, or what ever you might use them for. They came well packed, with polystyrene top/bottom,inside dust covers. Set up was simple,skybox hdmi to tv, optical from sky to yu6, attach speaker cable, power plug, turn on. As expected, an upgrade on any tv sound. Adjusting treble/bass is a bonus in this context. All the controls you need, are on the remote. I plugged in a sub, to enhance the lows.
