Product Information

Music is Made to Be Shared

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.

Composite Drivers

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.

Excellent Small speakers and fast shipping
I needed compact speakers of high build quality to hook up to my HP OMEN Gaming desktop for listening to music and gaming. after much research I decided to go with Kanto YU2 instead of Audioengine A2+.

Got them next day delivered by World Wide Stereo. came double boxed, brand new, and hooked them up via AudioQuest Dragonfly RED and a high quality 3.5 MM cable and they sound great. Excellent packaging and speakers are very well made and matt finish is very nice. All the items one would need are in the box. Great purchase and got 5% off and free shipping.
