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

Good Luck


  1. Connected to my phone while on our deck or to my computer inside when using it. Any music except hip hop and sugary pop songs.

  2. I would use them to play streamed music from my laptop for my home gym downstairs. I think I would most likely play Latin music off Youtube.

  3. These would work great outside connected to my phone or inside with my laptop. My favourites would be classic rock from the 70’s and 80’s.

  4. I will listen to my newly purchased Beatles discography on vinyl. I will listen to them while we are hanging out as a family in our living room.

  5. I would use them using my cell and bluetooth when I am outside in the yard gardening and weeding. It would help me relax and enjoy the process.

  6. Grewat article. Thanks for all the info. I recently found a new belt for my turntable so I would love to hook these speakers up to that and listen to my stash of records again. My current speakers are over 30 years old and the sound cuts out completely from one of them now and again. Thanks for the chance to win a replacement!

  7. I would use these to have great music playing while I clean house for the millionth time. I have never had a good way to play music off my phone so this would help!

  8. I would actually connect these to my TV set, and use these to replace the poor-quality sound from the built-in speakers there.

  9. I would likely take advantage of the bluetooth feature and enjoy my dance party music from my iphone in the kitchen. Love that they are made in Canada!

  10. I would love to stream the latest Weeknd album from my laptop using bluetooth! These speakers would be so lovely and a definite audio improvement from my current setup (laptop on-board speakers, hahah). Thanks for the chance!
