Play audio from nearly any device with the pair of matte white Kanto Living YU4 2-Way Powered Bookshelf Speakers. They feature an RCA, 1/8" mini, and two optical TOSLINK inputs, plus built-in Bluetooth for wireless connectivity. The RCA input can function as either a line-level or phono input via a rear-mounted switch, and a ground terminal is onboard to attach to your turntable. A 5V USB port is also built-in to keep your phone charged during playback. Each speaker has a 4" Kevlar woofer and a 1" silk dome tweeter to produce a total RMS output of up to 70W. An IR remote is included, along with speaker wire and an 1/8" AUX cable for instant connectivity.

Turntable-Friendly
For laid-back listeners, hardcore gamers, and vinyl enthusiasts alike, the 4 was designed to do it all. All you need to do is provide the source.
Designed for Sound and Aesthetics
Kanto speakers feature sanded cabinets, woven Kevlar drivers, and silk dome tweeters to embody both sound and design.
Enhanced Connectivity
Inspired by an appreciation for both digital and analog connectivity, the 4 is designed to give you the freedom to enjoy all your devices. Connect your turntable directly to the speakers' built-in phono preamp, transmit audio from your display via optical TOSLINK, or connect your subwoofer for extra bass.
Remote Control
The included remote control allows you to switch between sources, tune your sound, and control playback while streaming via Bluetooth.
Additional Features
  • A rear-mounted switch allows you to flip between Phono and Line RCA input types.
  • Keep your phone charged with the rear-mounted 5V USB port.
  • Auto-standby mode helps conserve energy when the speakers are not in use.

    Kanto Living YU4 reviews

    YU4 2-Way Powered Bookshelf Speakers (Pair, Matte White) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp, lovely sound with stylish presentation Reviews were somewhat limited so I used reference reviews on the Yumi models as my benchmark. I rolled the dice and am excited to say I'm thoroughly impressed with these guys! Bass extension is better than I'd anticipated and the audio is crisp with vocals really coming through clearly. They're slowly opening up and I'm getting a little more mid range coming through. Thus far with perhaps 10 hours on them, acoustic pop, jazz and rock really shine. My Audio Technica turntable sounds great, really reminding me how much I'd missed my vinyl (tested Def Leppard - Pyromania, Freddie Hubbard - Straight Life, Jack White - Lazaretto). As a note, poor quality audio has been less than stellar so do keep that in mind. The biggest asset for most will likely be the input flexibility, but vinyl heads with limited space will enjoy them I feel. Second may be their look and feel. The unboxing experience is excellent, both speakers protected in cloth sleeves. In your hands, they're sturdy and refined with a good weight. Additionally, the built in DAC for your digital inputs sounds great, though I may try my Schiit Modi out of curiosity. My configuration is Toslink out of my desktop computer (ASRock X99M F4tality) and Audio Technica LP1240 (with Shure M97x) mainly. Bluetooth testing has been very limited and at rather low volumes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hosa Toslink to the rescue Another great value for me, Hosa hasn't let me down. I'm running directly out from my X99 Asrock motherboard to my newly acquired Kanto YU4 active speakers. No fuss, just clean and crisp audio. Be sure to check your lengths! These came in 5' and 10' lengths as I added to cart fully assuming I'd be receiving at 2 meter long cable initially and ordered the 5' model, no fault on Hosa completely on me. Outside of that difference from competitors, another phenomenal product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bookshelf speakers I bought these for my small 8x12 workshop and run my portable hq music player through them. No amplification required. I have them suspended at ear level. Surprisingly good sound quality for their size. Very happy with this purchase. Always have great service and support from B&H!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great-sounding speakers! They are relatively compact yet can fill up a large room (or perhaps even a living room). Sound quality is top-notch. I love that they can connect to both my turntable (Pro-ject Debut Carbon) and my phone via Bluetooth (quick and easy switch).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I'm using those as computer speakers in my office. I used to have a 2.1 system but the sound from those is so much better. The remote is great and allows you to switch between sources, skip tracks (for bluetooth), adjust bass an trebble.
