In a class of its own
The Kanto TUK utilises cutting-edge technology to deliver the best possible listening experience when it comes to bookshelf speakers. One of the driving forces of the TUK speakers is the specialised AMT (Air Motion Transformer) tweeters. This unique tweeter delivers unparalleled sonic accuracy, reproduces the highs and lows of your sound with incredible precision. The pleated construction of the tweeter provides an increased surface area, allowing for improved movement of air. This results in improved definition and a wider dispersion, ensuring everyone in the rooms hears a consistent sound.
At the core of the TUK speakers is a 130W RMS class D amplifier, providing 656W RMS to each channel. The powerful onboard DSP (digital signal processing) delivers an ultra-wide frequency response, capturing every nuance of your source audio. The advanced DSP allows Kanto to fine-tune the speakers to achieve the exact sound desired. The active crossover also improves the low-end resolution, filtering out lower frequencies below 80Hz when connected to a subwoofer.
High-resolution Bluetooth wireless technology
Not only do the Kanto TUKs perform well with audio cables; it also can transmit high-resolution audio over Bluetooth. Using a device that supports aptx HD (smartphones, media players etc.) you can enjoy audiophile-quality sound wirelessly. The speakers also provide support for standard aptX and AAC codecs, ensuring top-quality sound regardless of the device.
Versatile connectivity with input display
The TUK is jam-packed with connections, featuring everything you could possibly need to enjoy your music from your chosen medium. Use the Phono connection to hook up a turntable or use the RCA to hook up your TV or Blu-Ray player. Output terminals are also included for use with passive speakers as well as a 3.5mm headphone output for private listening.
Another unique feature of the TUK is the integrated input display. The front of the speaker features an array of five lights, indicating when a connection is in use. The dedicated LEDs provides you with visual confirmation, taking the guesswork out of which device you are using. You can even adjust the brightness of the input display or fully turn off the LEDs.
Built-in phono preamp and USB input for external DAC
This is a truly all-in-one speaker system, providing everything you could need to get the job done. A phono preamp is typically used as the bridge between the turntables and speakers. The integrated preamp eliminates the need for this, allowing you to plug your turntables directly into the speakers.
You can also improve the audio performance of other equipment using the external DAC that the Kanto TUK offers. For instance, PCs onboard sound cards can usually be lacking n audio quality and prone to electromagnetic interference. The USB input supports audio resolution up to 24-bit/96kHz, providing a solid digital connection to your PC. The USB input can also be used to charge and power various devices such as smartphones.
