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.
Silk Dome Tweeters
YU2 features 3/4” silk dome tweeters to deliver clear crisp highs.
The 3” composite drivers provide distortion-free mid-range and bass tones - surprising performance for such a small speaker.
Inputs and Outputs
Use the AUX input with the included Kanto 3.5mm cable to connect any device with a headphone jack to your YU2. Lighten the load on your computer’s CPU by connecting directly to YU2’s built-in DAC via a USB cable for a fully digital, high-quality audio connection. If you want a little more kick, connect a powered subwoofer to the SUB OUT port.
Rear Bass Port
YU2 has a rear bass port that has been carefully designed and tuned to eliminate port turbulence while extending bass response.
Knurled Binding Posts
The speaker connection from left to 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.
Accessible Volume Knob
Tucked neatly out of the way at the top of your active speaker, the smoothly rotating knob doubles as a power switch.

Customer Reviews for Kanto YU2 Powered Desktop Speakers - Pair
I have used World Wide Stereo for my home audio and TV’s. I worked with them over chat to order speakers for my home office/ workout room. These speakers are a great improvement over my Macbook Air and Lenovo T480. Watching movies and listening to music in the basement or when riding with Zwift. If the room was bigger or if it was a family room, I would have gone bigger but for my small office they are great. I love it with my power subwoofer even better.
