Sound Design

Outfitted with 1” silk dome tweeters and 5.25” kevlar woofers, the YU5 broadcasts clear and crisp highs, balanced mids, and deep lows for a fully covered range. Housed in hand-built MDF cabinets for superior acoustics, the speakers are powered by 40 W RMS per channel, courtesy of a Class D amplifier. As the speakers are connected with high quality knurled binding posts, you don’t lose a detail or pick up unwanted distortion.

Operation

Giving you a range of input options, you can plug into the YU5 with an 1/8” AUX jack, dual optical inputs, or the standard RCA connection. If you’d rather leave out the wires, link your smart device to the speakers with embedded Bluetooth technology. You can control the unit via the front control knob, but the included remote control gives you all the same function with an extra dash of convenience. Beautifully completed with either a glossy or matte finish, the Kanto YU5 Speaker System looks as good as it sounds, and that’s saying a lot.
