So close...
I'm not particularly fond of buying audio products online. Unfortunately my options for trying speakers at a store are very limited. I took a leap of faith on these speakers, and while they are very, very good for the price, they fall just a tiny bit short of my expectations. The build and finish of...

I love music more than anything in my life, and the quality at which I hear it is very important to me. I am a musician on top of that so obviously a nice set of speakers are something I care about. Currently have Kanto YU6’s (feel free to roast I think they sound amazing for the price).
Very Happy Upon Initial Setup
So I went back and forth for quite some time as to which speakers to purchase for my Technics 1200 MK2 Turntable I recently acquired. Prior to these I was using an older, fairly inexpensive set of Logitech THX Computer Speakers that included a subwoofer. They were okay but not great by any means, so...

Had hum issues and a bad woofer, Kanto exchanged a new pair and these work much better.
I bought these to replace my Logitech Z623's. The speakers appear to lack a proper filter though because they will hum when plugged into the same circuit as my computer (the Z623's, and even my older $40 generic speakers all manage to avoid this problem). Unfortunately, the closest outlet on a seper...

The best analogy I can offer is that it sounds like a bloated burlap pillow. I still am in need of something for the main floor. Kanto YU6's are a bit out of my price range, then there are the Fluance Ai60 which are sold out everywhere. Should I hook up a used AVR to the matching Centre channel (XTZ Spirit 6) speaker that I have been eyeing?

Kanto YU6 Review – Modern, Multifaceted
There is also no denying the charming aesthetic carved out by Kanto, these speakers look timeless yet serious and they do so without compromising functionality and practicality. They have terrific connectivity that trumps almost all neighbouring competitors and a very convenient full-featured remote. The YU6 impresses with its versatility enabled by a balanced yet customisable sound with excellent vocal intelligibility and flexible design and connectivity

Loud speakers, great electronics, disappointing sound quality
These speakers had all the potential to be great. The output power, the variety of inputs (2 optical!!), the simple setup... But the performance is simply sub-par. They're plenty loud enough. But the sound is incredibly muddy. There's almost no separation of instruments, and the out of the box level...

Kanto YU6 Powered Speakers Review
Kanto YU6 Review ConclusionThe Kanto YU6 has spent most of its time with me sat plugged into my office system and its clean, modern design suits this well. Although, it could easily look at home in your living room.I have been impressed by the YU6’s balance and clarity mixed with a build quality seemingly beyond its asking price
