Kanto Living YU6 Reviews
They grew on me
My first thoughts were that these speakers were a bit flat. I was coming from a pretty decent in-wall setup that had great imaging and frequency range, but was a hassle to turn on and also had Bluetooth connection problems. Right out of the box these sounded more compressed with less imaging quality. But very clear with good presence and the Bluetooth connection was very good. I used them for a few days, adjusting their position in the room and then re-compared them to my in-wall setup. Totally changed my mind. These are great for what they are for the money. Maybe they could use a sub-woofer, but I am using them with a computer setup so I really don't need to shake the house with them. But they do go quite loud if you want. And the sound may even improve a bit at higher levels. So for the ease of connecting to Bluetooth, the great clarity and overall sound quality, I will be using these instead of the problematic in-wall system I used to love. If there is one issue to mention, connecting to the headphone jack on my computer introduces a lot of noise and even picks up my neighbors tv sometimes. They say you can ground them to fix this problem but I have not been able to make that work. So the only way I can listen to them with my computer is through Bluetooth.
Beautiful and Big Sounding Speakers
Very good speakers for my desk and computer, with their own built in power supply for big sound simply by plugging one wire (or wireless) to the computer or device. Look great and sound great. They are the larger of the Kanto speakers but I bet you'd get good sound out of the YU4 as well.
I'm impressed by how nicely made these are, and they sound very good too. I like having the option of plugging music sources in, including a turntable without a preamp. They paired with my MP3 player without a hitch. Wish I could say the same for my laptop, but it seems to have a problem (the laptop). It's in the shop now and I hope my guy can figure out what's wrong. The packaging is impressive too--everything very simple and safe. I'm very pleased with them and can't wait to hear them in my cabin in the boonies where they'll replace an old JVC boombox.
Just what we wanted
Although we had to wait (due to backorder) these finally arrived 3 weeks after xmas. Hooked up to old record player and the fun began. Good sound and useful bluetooth, or old school hook ups. Black cases show dust fyi. Might pick a lighter color if that's an issue in your house (as it is in mine!).
Great Sound. Nicest speakers I've heard in this price range.
Worth every penny. Loud with no distortion and great detail when paired with the at-lp60xbt turn table.
Needs Phone App Control
These are nice speakers. The sound is very good. The control through the remote is useful, but could be better. I remote app on the phone is really all that is missing from these speakers.
Very solid sound in a small-ish package. Easy to connect and contain both a pre-amp and integrated bluetooth, which makes it nice and streamlined. Didn't compare to YU4, but these don't feel huge if size is an issue.
Excellent Compact Bookshelf Speakers
I bought these as a gift for my son. He is using them in his college dorm room. They sound really great and they do even better if you pair them with a subwoofer. His only complaint is pairing to Bluetooth could be easier. It is not too bad, but when multiple visitors want to pair to the speaker it is a bit of a pain.
