Unmatched Connectivity

Inspired by an equal appreciation for digital and analog, the YU4 gives you the freedom to enjoy all your devices. Connect a turntable via a built-in phono preamp, transmit high fidelity audio from your computer or TV with optical TOSLINK, or sit back and enjoy your newly curated playlist with Bluetooth 4.0. With five inputs and a subwoofer output, the YU4 brings all your sound to life.

Throw On Your Favorite Record

The YU4 comes equipped with a built-in phono preamp, allowing you to easily connect any vintage or modern-day turntable. Toggle between line-level and phono with a simple flip of a switch, and reduce noise using the provided ground terminal.

Upgrade Your Desktop Setup

Take your desktop setup to the next level by connecting the YU4 to your computer via the RCA, aux, or optical TOSLINK inputs. To reduce vibration and improve the soundstage, use the speakers with optional desktop speaker stands.

Kanto Living YU4 Reviews

Impressive fidelity in an attractive case

By James
Rated 5 out of 5

I've had the YU4s in the bedroom for about six months and continue to be very impressed with the quality of sound from these powered speakers. They are perfect for use with your phone or tablet and they have every kind of input for just about any other media. The highs are incredibly clear and bright and they have surprisingly rich lows for bookshelf size speakers. The sound fills the bedroom space well and the bamboo finish, shape and exposed design blend great with the decor. All aspects of these YU4s from the packaging to the sound are high quality and as usual, the buying experience and service from B and H is the best.

The sound quality is great given their little footprint. That being said the BT input gain is ridicuously low. But they can throw some into the room with an analog preamp of some sort and the auxiliary/line in inputs.

Superb sound, plenty of inputs, easy

Excellent speakers with extremely crisp sound. Highly recommended. Perfect balance b/w size and sound quality for desktop, but could also be used for TV, turntable, etc.

Amazing speakers for the non-audiophile

Amazing speakers for the non-audiophile that appreciates great sound AND design! Make sure you get the angles right though, because that can really affect the sound

I have Pioneer plx 500 and these speakers are just a live saver. Sound is great for home, black matte will fit any interior. Highly recommend

Terrific Speakers

These are very clear speakers. The highs & mids are clear. The bass doesn't hit or go as low as you may wish, but that is perfect for me. I am a novice audiophile, but I would consider these the best budget friendly speakers you can purchase due to quality & audio performance. I connect these via RCA cables & they work flawlessly. They also have an auto-turn off feature - terrific for those who do not want the hassle of turning the device on & off each use.

Best Small Footprint Speakers!!
