Bought this and a yu4 for my apartment, just by reading reviews and watching some youtubers talk about these. Hooking them up i was really happy with the sound they produce. Especially when fine tuning them with the remotes bass/treble settings. The only negative is that i was going to use these for the tv but lack som clarity in the mids. So i hooked them up to my vinyl player, and now they really shine.
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.
Wanted a set of pc speakers for gaming, i had a sound bar temporarily, until i found the perfect set up. Stumbled across these as i didn’t want the 5 speaker surround sound. Love that fact they have a built in pre amp, external sub connection but what i like the most is the built in blue tooth and 2 optical in. The speaker quality are great, base is perfect and treble is nice. I wanted gloss red but no where had stock in the end i got matt white. Would definitely recommend these for pc set ups, or dj set ups. My point is these speakers are so versatile.
- Awesome speakers, especially when paired with the sub!
- Outstanding allround speakers
- excellent well built and sound
