Clear, Bright Sound

I like these speakers. Probably not a huge base, for you audiophiles, but the top is lovely. The only thing I really do not like is the volume dial on the rear. It's not convenient.

Perfect for My Needs - Couldn't be Happier

I've been looking for a good pair of desktop monitors for a while now. My primary use is video editing with Premiere Pro. I also use them for listening to the audio from an SDR (Software Defined Radio) and general purpose use ie: streaming video. These fit my needs perfectly. The are the perfect size for my limited desk space. Best of all the sound quality is awesome! They totally blow away the built in speakers in my laptop. The detail is amazing compared to what I was used to. I have no need for a sub with my setup.

They may look small beside my 28 inch Samsung 4K monitor but the sound of these speakers is way better than one would expect.

In a word, PERFECT!

Why, you, too, can - and should - have YU2 speakers. Cannot rate them highly enough.

These Kanto YU2 speakers are really a great pair of desktop speakers. They may look small but do not be fooled, they sound really amazing. The bamboo finish on these YU2 have become my desk setup's statement piece - it has added a really nice accent touch to my desk. The entire purchase and delivery process was really very good - well done B&H. Overall, really recommend the Kanto YU2.

I'm no audiophile, I don't know anything about the science of speakers. But I do know that I've had these speakers on my desk, playing music all day every day since the day they arrived at my house. And they sound pretty fantastic at all volumes I use. The built-in DAC is great, and they are straightfoward to use. Physically, the bamboo looks beautiful and matches my bamboo desk surface. I would purchase these again.

How would these compare to something like the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 THX system?
Asked by: Allen
The Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Speaker System includes a powerful 6.5&quot; subwoofer with a pair of front firing satellite speakers with 3&quot; woofers and together they offer a wide frequency response range of 35 Hz to 22 kHz. The Klipsch system has a 1/8&quot; (3.5mm) input. The Kanto Living YU2 Powered Desktop Speakers have 3&quot; woofers with a bass reflex port in the back to accentuate the low end frequencies and the system has a frequency response range of 80 Hz to 20 kHz. The Kanto system also has both a 1/8&quot; (3.5mm) input and a USB input for a fully digital audio connection to a computer. A dedicated subwoofer connection allows you to add a powered subwoofer (available separately) if desired. Both systems include a headphone jack. The Klipsch system also has a removable control pod to adjust the speaker and subwoofer volume levels, and there is an aux input to connect a smartphone, tablet, or media player directly to the system.

question

I would like to connect these speakers to an older Bose Acoustic Wave music system model cd3000 which has RCA connections for powered speakers. If I purchase a y cable (male RCA to male 3.5mm) for each speaker, will I be able to connect them directly to the radio?
Asked by: Lynnea
Lynnea,I believe we spoke via support already but all you would need is a standard dual male RCA to stereo 3.5mm cable. Feel free to contact us directly using the support button on our website if you have any additional questions, thanks.
