Kanto Living TUK Powered Bookshelf Speakers (Pair)
Self-Contained Playback System Handles Everything from Vinyl to High-Res Audio: Kanto TUK Powered Bookshelf Loudspeakers Feature 65W Amp, USB DAC, and More
On the surface, the Kanto TUK is a pair of powered bookshelf loudspeakers that deliver stunningly low bass output and room-filling detail while showcasing "can-I-touch-it-please" aesthetics. But these striking components are much more.
Replete with a 65-watt Class D amplifier, a high-resolution USB DAC, Toslink optical and RCA jacks, and dedicated phono inputs and turntable grounding post, TUK serves as a self-contained, full-service audio playback system meticulously engineered to handle any music or entertainment source – from streaming high-resolution files to spinning vinyl.
Ideal for computer-audio setups, TUK even arrives fully certified to work wirelessly with all the latest Bluetooth 4.2 aptX HD capable devices.
While plenty of powered speakers have flooded the market, few match the audiophile caliber and technology packed into TUK. Instead of relying on inexpensive domed tweeters, the Canadian-based Kanto opted for a pricier Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter with a reputation for low distortion, sweetly smooth highs, and the ability to project large, immersive soundstages.
Add to such benefits the low mass and high rigidity of TUK's 5.25-inch aluminum woofer, and you have a rare affordable bookshelf model that reproduces a wide range of frequencies with natural balance and transparency. TUK even remains ready for a sonic upgrade if you want to improve your system's bass. Equipped with a DSP that automatically sends information below 80hz to your dedicated subwoofer, TUK's midrange and upper performance further blossoms when you engage the subwoofer output.
"With or without a subwoofer, we can't think of a better way to spend $799 on a hifi system. And remember, this isn't just a pair of powered speakers; the Kanto TUKs are a complete hifi system."
– Audiophile Apartment/TONEAudio, Product of the Year Award
"Gobs of power and bass force underpin one of the most engaging and exacting top ends I've encountered under $1K. Be assured, the new TUK monitors were steadily leaving jaws dropped from both show-goers young and not so young."
