Kanto YU powered speakers reviewSometimes a bookshelf speaker, like those made by Kanto, is the best option. For example, you want big sound but don’t have the space or the desire for a massive stereo with a receiver, tower speakers etc. Or you have a record player and you just want some speakers to amplify the sound in your home. As you’ll discover reading this article, Kanto YU speakers may be precisely the audio solution you’ve been looking for. Keep reading and you’ll also find out how to enter for a chance to win a pair of these speakers.

Kanto YU bookshelf speakers can fill your home with the sounds of summer

On the Best Buy blog and on bestbuy.ca website we’ve been talking a lot about the “Sounds of Summer“. Music is really important for many people in the summer. I know I am playing more music at this time from Spotify, the radio, and from my turntable. And if you want bigger sound that you currently get from your phone, laptop, or perhaps a portable speaker, and you want to share the sound (which is hard to do with headphones), then you need speakers. And with Kanto YU, that’s all you need.

What can you do with Kanto YU speakers

To celebrate the sounds of summer we have been running amazing contests like this one. In fact this is the third audio related contest so far in the last couple weeks (and not the last!). We are also sending out many of the newest audio technology to independent reviewers to get their opinion so you can learn more about these products.

We sent a set of Kanto YU speakers to reviewer Brad Moon. Brad loves playing vinyl so of course he had to connect these speakers to his turntable. Read his review and watch his video to learn how easy these were to set up and learn what Brad thought about the sound. When you’re done reading, enter this contest for a chance to win a new set of these speakers for your home. Here’s how:

How to enter

Entering this contest is easy and you can enter once here in a comment and once in a comment below Brad’s review of the Kanto YU speakers. In the comment, tell us what you will listen to and how you will use the Kanto YU speakers in your home. For example, will you stream Mozart from your laptop using bluetooth; perhaps you’re like Brad and you’ll play some 70’s or 80’s rock with the speakers connected to a turntable.

What you can win

At the end of this contest we’ll select two (2) winners. Each will receive a new set of Kanto YU speakers.

This contest runs from June 31st to August 17th.

Remember you can only enter once here on the contest article and once below Brad review of the Kanto YU speakers. You can also share with anyone you know who loves music as much as you do and would be very happy to win these speakers.
