Kanto Living YU2 overview

  • 1Description

The YU2 Powered Desktop Speakers from Kanto Living features 3" composite drivers along with ¾" silk dome tweeters housed in matte gray cabinets to surround you in sounds. It comes equipped with a USB port as well as an integrated soundcard to stream high-quality audio from your computer. It also sports a 3.5mm AUX jack for your multimedia devices. With this combination of features, the speakers produce a frequency response of 80 Hz to 20 kHz and 50 watts of total RMS power.

The YU2 has knurled binding posts that create a connection between the active left speaker and the passive right speaker. This wiring system lets you customize the length of the included 10' speaker wire or use a longer wire. For convenience, a volume control knob doubles as a power switch. To connect with an optional subwoofer, a sub-out port is onboard. Included along with the speakers are a power cord, feet kit, 3.5mm audio cable, and USB cable.

    Kanto Living YU2 reviews

    YU2 Powered Desktop Speakers (Matte Gray) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Appearance, Quality Build, Quality Sound. Beautiful fit and finish in gloss black. Near field sound is well focused, balanced, precise. Impressive stereo imaging. A real, little, fully executed loudspeaker. Don't think you will get a more pleasant computer desktop 2.0 listening experience at this price point. This is a small speaker that gets plenty loud for office use and will rock out a bit within reason. Sound is balanced for size so bass response is commensurate with physical limits. Go bigger or add a SW if you need more booms. All the wires and connectors you need are included. Binding posts are solid, secure above grade quality as is the whole package.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GAME CHANGER This is my third audio device. I have a harman kardon speaker, bose q25 headphones and finally these Kanto YU2 speakers. I've never heard anything so clear in my life, the base is so good for its size. I was going to get the Kanto SUB6 to go with it but I don't think I'm going to need it anytime soon. It is worth every penny you won't regret these speakers. JUST DO IT. SO GOOD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous sound in such a small package These little babes have transformed my listening experience with my computer. Gorgeous sound. Sure there could be more bass, but frankly for the listening I'm doing there's plenty without adding a subwoofer. I've got the bamboo finish, and the each speaker looks quite different, one with a more uniform finish, the other more cross-grain. It looks even more natural with them not being the same. Only tiny gripe: one of the speakers doesn't sit flat on a flat surface. I needed an additional thin pad to stop it from wobbling. Tiny gripe though, the sound is luxuriously excellent. Thank you Kanto!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased I use these on my computer desk to listen to music while I work. I typically listen to acoustic guitar music at very low volume but will occasionally listen to my "Texas Blues" Pandora station at higher volume. These perform well. They have a clear, crisp sound. Perhaps lacking bass a little.� A week or so after I received these, I bought a Kanto sub8. This really rounds-out the sound.� But, I was pleased with the sound without the sub. I just saw that the sub was on sale, so I went for it. These make a great computer sound system. I would recommend them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good choice for computer speakers I bought these because I don't like the built-in speakers on my computer. �These sound much better with music and are particularly good for watching movies or similar on the computer. �Other reviews have mentioned that the bass isn't very strong, and this is the case, but it isn't a big issue for me. �Set up is very simple, the instructions are clear, and the use of knurled binding posts for the speaker wire is particularly welcome as I feel it provides a more positive connection than other methods. �For the money, I think these are an excellent choice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, lacks bass Had these speakers for about a month and I like them. �They're clear even at higher volumes. �Don't let the bamboo picture fool you though, they're not as bright looking. �The speakers do lack bass though. �But it does have an audio out jack in the back to hook up your own bass. �I guess Kanto knew this may be a problem for some. �I don't particularly need bass but just pointing this out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style & packs a punch While there are quite a lot of cheaper desktop speakers out there, I am so glad I went with the Kanto YU2. They take up minimal desk space and produce more than enough sound with depth and clarity. Well worth the money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loud and clear, great pc speakers Really enjoy these speakers, no distortion at the top end cranked. Could use more volume but considering how small they are they make a lot of quality noise.
