What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Kanto YU4 Powered Speakers with Bluetooth® and Phono Preamp, Gloss Black
  • The speakers sound fantastic. They are small compact and will fit in the kitchen.
  • Love these speakers! Well built and they have good weight!
  • When taking the speakers out of the box, I noticed and appreciated the weight of them.
  • The sound is pretty good, the physical weight of the speaker makes makes them such that they do not resonate/vibrate on deep sounds.
  • These speakers feel very solidly built and have a nice weight.
Kanto YU6 Powered Bookshelf Speakers with Bluetooth and Phono Preamp
  • The build quality is unmatched -- nothing about these speakers feels too "plastic" or cheap. Very heavy, immaculate glossy finish.
  • Be forewarned these are large and HEAVY very solid.. and the sound in amazing.
  • These speakers put out sound that easily rivals speakers 3 times their size. Doesn't get much better.
  • I paired these with the Kanto 26 inch speaker stands and with some positioning have created the big full sound I was looking for out of a compact set up.
  • Kanto YU6 has treble/bass controls and a decent size remote control.

What customers say about "Audio"
Kanto YU4 Powered Speakers with Bluetooth® and Phono Preamp, Gloss Black
  • Sound wise, which lets face it is the most important factor when buying audio equipment, is stunning.
  • Sound is top notch for the size and price, connectivity options are great, too.
  • This is a very capable PC speaker system with a very rich sound.
  • The basses are not over exaggerated which, in my opinion, is a great thing.
  • Best speakers I have bought, did away with my pre amp and previous stack. Sound is tremendous in my living room.
Kanto YU6 Powered Bookshelf Speakers with Bluetooth and Phono Preamp
  • The mids are beautiful and clear. Vocals sound excellent and you can hear every little detail in music.
  • I can't speak to its durability over time since the YU6 was released just last month and I've had my units less than a week, but I am more than happy with its sound, design and its remote controller.
  • Great sound for the money. Clean and crisp with nice remote control over treble, bass, balance and source.
  • Stereo base is amazing, I use them via Bluetooth and the sound is just wow!!
  • My one complaint is in the high notes. They don't sound bad per se, but they're just not right. They sound too rough. Distortion is a small issue, but not too bad.

What customers say about "Features"
Kanto YU4 Powered Speakers with Bluetooth® and Phono Preamp, Gloss Black
  • Bluetooth basically set its self up after I found the setting on my iPhone and now I'm streaming anything from my music library or online radio.
  • You don't have to do too much adjustment to either to achieve a really sweet punchy sound.
  • Would definitely recommend to others looking for this style of speaker for a good price. Excellent quality and affordable.
  • The remote is unfortunately quite a let-down as well. Firstly, it looks really cheap, secondly, you have to point it directly at the right speaker, otherwise it won't work.
  • Not sure about styling as they kinda look cliche to me.
Kanto YU6 Powered Bookshelf Speakers with Bluetooth and Phono Preamp
  • The build and finish of the speakers is astounding. They're solid and have a perfect paint job and they look fantastic on almost all types of furniture.
  • The available connectivity is also quite good. While an integrated phono preamp isn't ideal it is very convenient.
  • Awesome speakers! They not only look great but also they are impressive.
  • I went with the Matte White because it paired well with my computer case.
  • These speakers easily work with everything. The built in bluetooth was especially important to me since my wife comes back from work dancing to music playing out of her tiny iPhone speakers.
