Kanto YU3 Apt-X Bluetooth Speakers

Desktop Speakers in Matte Black

Based in Vancouver, Canada, Kanto makes highly regarded speakers that help audiophiles experience their music in greater detail. The YU3 is no exception, equipped with a 4-inch Kevlar driver and a 1-inch silk dome tweeter that, combined, pump out a balanced midrange, deep bass, and crisp highs. So crank the volume up (you'll find the control knob on the front of the active speaker), and rest assured your whole range is covered. The two speakers are connected with knurled binding posts to ensure you don't lose sound in transit, and the overall effect is distortion-free and true to the recording, with impeccable sound imaging.

Construction

Housed in acoustic-grade MDF cabinets for minimal audio interference, these speakers can be displayed on your desk or tucked on your bookshelf. Connect them to your source using a standard 3.5-millimeter jack, RCA cords, or optical inputs, or wirelessly to your Bluetooth-compatible device. Finally, in case the YU3's ample bass isn’t enough, there’s another output for adding a subwoofer.
