Kanto YU5 Powered Bookshelf Speakers - Pair

Our Price



The YU5 is Kanto's top-of-the-line YU-series bookshelf speaker. Armed with Optical TOSLINK, Bluetooth™ 4.0 with aptX® for wireless streaming, RCA and 3.5mm AUX inputs, the YU5 is ready to unleash your favorite music no matter what source you use. Outputting 40W RMS per side via its powerful Class D amp, it delivers crystal-clear sound through its 5.25” Kevlar® woofers and 1” silk dome tweeters. Proudly designed in Canada, the YU5 is enclosed in hand-built acoustic MDF cabinets.

The 5.25” Kevlar® drivers provide distortion-free mid-range and deep bass that faithfully reproduces your favorite music.

YU5 features 1” silk dome tweeters to deliver clear crisp highs.

YU5’s simple user interface features a single knob positioned in the upper right corner of the Active speaker. Simply rotate for volume, push the knob in to cycle through the 5 inputs, or push and hold for 2 seconds to enter or exit standby mode.

YU5 features five input choices, including two Optical TOSLINK ports and Bluetooth™. If you are looking for more low-end, connect a powered subwoofer to the SUB OUT port.

The speaker connection from Active (LEFT) to Passive (RIGHT) uses high quality knurled binding posts. This standardized wiring system allows you to trim the included premium speaker wire to the desired length or purchase longer lengths for more versatility.

YU5 has a 2” rear bass port that has been carefully designed and tuned to eliminate port turbulence while extending bass response.

The YU5 remote control gives you input, volume, and tone control, and allows you to control your connected Bluetooth™ device. You can also trigger USB charging when the speakers are in standby mode.

YU5 comes complete with a remote control (with batteries), power cord, speaker wire and an RCA – mini-jack adapter that you can use to adapt for either input. The package also includes a manual and rubber feet.
