Kanto YU2 Powered Desktop Speakers

Proudly designed in Canada, the YU2 desktop mini-monitor will make you believe that big sound can come in a small package. With its built-in soundcard, it can stream high-quality audio directly from your computer’s USB port, or connect directly to any 3.5mm AUX jack for maximum input flexibility. 3” composite drivers ensure a distortion-free bass and midrange, while the 3/4” silk dome tweeters effortlessly produce scintillating highs. A specially tuned bass-port on the rear extends the low end while keeping airflow away from your active workspace. If deep bass is your thing, simply connect a subwoofer to the SUB OUT port and revel in pure low-end bliss. Available in matte or gloss finishes to personalize your space.

    Overall happy, good speakers. Volume control on the front would be better than in the rear.

    Posted by Carl on May 22nd 2020

    They are a ton better than my laptop and monitor speakers. Well built, good sound. The instructions say to place speakers at least "20 to 25 cm" (8 to 10 inches) from back wall for adequate bass response ...these are desktop speakers, so that is not always possible with all the crap on my desk. Maybe all speakers say that, although my old ones that blew out after 15 years didn't need that. They were satellite speakers with a sub-woofer though. My old speakers had a separate volume control with a long cord that I could put anywhere. I didn't realize how much I would miss that. The volume control on these is in the rear, making my transition even more challenging. Sometimes you need to access speaker volume control. Windows volume control does not cut it.
