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.

Win Kanto YU speakers Contest Rules and Regulations

  1. I’d use these speakers to play jazz and blues music from my laptop via a DAC/AMP. Maybe these speakers will also finally encourage me to get a turntable and listen to vinyls.

  2. I would listen to the soundtrack from Umbrella Academy season 2 through my laptops Bluetooth. Reading all the books I got this summer with my dog as she loves to listen to music and hangout. The speakers would be amazing to have to block out all of my younger siblings screams and it would be fantastic to use when watching shows on my laptop!

  3. I will connect via bluetooth and listen to “my”music in my office in the background when i am working.
    My music consists of easy listening throwbacks from the 80’s and 90s like Phil Collins.

  4. These would go into daughters room so she could stay off my computer…LOL She would use to dance to R&B and sing her heart out. I occasionally join in!

  5. If I won, my husband would connect them to one of his turntables and play his Classic Rock at top volume!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  6. Would definitely blast Taylor Swift’s new album Folklore in my apartment in the morning. Great way to start my family’s day with upbeat tunes. Would also love to play classical music to boost my productivity throughout the day!

  7. I think I will do both with these speakers – I am recently into Swing music and have a big file of swing music to listen to – and it’s great when it fills the room!! I also have vinyl records to listen to – winning these would force me into looking for a record player to listen to my 80’s lovely music!! Oh!! And I have a friend who posts music from time to time I could listen to – the children I take care of love to listen to!

    Oh… I’d be so happy!
