I’ve had many pairs of Kanto speakers. I love the convenience of self-powered speakers and the beautiful sound the speakers make. However, the one thing that’s been common through 4/5 pairs of Kanto speakers I’ve had is that they malfunction. So far Kanto’s customer support has been excellent in replacing broken units, but after another pair (YU6) broke this weekend (number 3 below) I’m growing weary. It seems that I can’t get a pair that lasts longer than 18 months. Here’s a rundown of my sets of speakers- what happened to them => what replaced them.
- YU5- Intermittent static sound => YU6
- YU2- LED burned out (I’m not going to complain about this too much because the LED was too bright anyways and they still work otherwise)
- YUMI- Channel imbalance & passive speaker cutting out => YU6- now broken, main power died. waiting to hear from support.
I’ll post updates as they happen.
