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.
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.

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’.
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.
So straight off, these are awesome little speakers. I’m not going to do an in-depth review of the sound since i’m not really qualified and you can find plenty of reviews of the sound on youtube. Suffice to say they’re punch, clear, have a decent amount of power, and sound great. There are a huge amount of inputs in the back – two optical (for a pc or your sky box for example), rca phono/line (to connect a record deck, mixer, games console, or many other things), aux (generally used to connect a phone or audio player), and bluetooth. You can switch between all of the inputs really easily with the remote, and you can connect two bluetooth devices (although you can only play one at once). On the back there’s also an output to a sub, which is highly recommended since as you can imagine the speakers are quite small so if you want to use these to watch movies or listen to loud music they don’t quite have enough punch, although they do very very well by themselves and a sub is in no way essential. I bought the kanto sub8: https://amzn. To/2v7keod – it’s super easy to connect and adds an immense amount of bass to the setup. In terms of stands, the speakers come with some horrible little ‘feet’ which are basically stickers and completely useless. Unfortunately it’s hard to get the official kanto stands in the uk, but i bought some of the soundxtra stands and they’re amazing, plus fit the speakers perfectly: https://amzn.
Cracking set of audiophile quality speakers. Great alternative to a usual amp/speaker setup.
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.
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 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.
