About The Kanto TUK Powered Speakers
Whether used for desktop, home cinema or stereo the Kanto TUK powered speakers offer amazing versatility including connections for turntable, auxiliary, headphones, computer, TV, subwoofer and aptX HD Bluetooth. With high quality AMT Tweeters and Aluminium Woofers, this DSP controlled speaker system has all the performance you need with a modern look that oozes contemporary style.
The TUK has possibly the widest range of inputs you’ll see on any wireless speakers on the market. The speakers are named after the hamlet of Tuktoyaktuk in the North-Western Territories of Canada, a sub-arctic area of natural beauty where the aurora borealis can be regularly seen.
Delivering clarity and performance that put it in a class of its own, TUK is designed to push the limits on what a bookshelf speaker can achieve. Fine-tuned with onboard DSP, its high-performance AMT tweeters and 5.25” (133mm) aluminium woofers produce sparkling highs and rich bass, bringing life to all your source material. Its active crossover further improves low-end resolution by filtering out sub-80Hz frequencies when connected to a subwoofer. Outfitted with dedicated phono, RCA and Optical Toslink inputs, a built-in USB DAC and headphone amp, and Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX HD and AAC codecs, TUK provides the flexibility you need to enjoy all your devices.
Stereo Imaging & Sound Quality Like No Other: TUK utilizes high-performance AMT tweeters that not only deliver brighter, more accurate highs, but their wide horizontal dispersion also offers improved stereo imaging and a wide soundstage. Meanwhile, in the all important midrange and bass, due to their high rigidity and low mass, TUK’s aluminium drivers operate at optimal efficiency while reducing distortion at higher volumes to give you the impact and realism you need. And to control these very special drivers TUK features integrated digital signal processing (DSP), designed to optimize audio quality and provide greater accuracy in sound reproduction. By combining technology with quality, Kanto TUK Active Speakers allow you to get lost in your favourite songs and soundtracks, regardless of where you are in the room.
Custom EQ Presets - Fine Tune Your Listening Experience: With the ability to save custom EQ settings for each input, TUK lets you control exactly how each of your devices sound. Keep the bass bumped up while gaming or streaming, and maintain a flat EQ when switching over to vinyl. Whatever your preference is, simply set it and forget it.
Vinyl - Throw On Your Favourite Record: Instead of a single, switchable RCA input, TUK features separate phono and line-level inputs to provide uninterrupted access to its built-in phono preamp. Simply plug in any vintage or modern-day turntable to enjoy all your favourite records.
HD Streaming - Enjoy High-Definition Streaming With aptX HD Bluetooth: Supporting 24-bit audio, aptX HD offers better-than-CD quality sound while streaming over Bluetooth. AAC is also supported for improved streaming with Apple devices. Sit back and enjoy high-resolution sound, all from the palm of your hand.
Achieve The Ultimate Desktop Setup: TUK features a built-in DAC to allow for a direct audio connection from your computer via USB. Eliminate any interference that your computer’s onboard soundcard may pick-up while enjoying a fully digital, high-quality audio connection.
For more intimate listening, simply plug your headphones into the 3.5mm headphone output located on the front of the active speaker. TUK’s internal headphone amplifier ensures uninterrupted listening with any source.
To reduce vibration and improve soundstaging, use TUK with the matched Kanto S6 desktop speaker stands.
Home Theatre - Bring Your Movies To Life: Bring high-fidelity sound to your home theatre by connecting TUK to your TV via Optical Toslink. For an even more immersive experience, hook up a subwoofer and activate TUK’s active crossover.
Reversable Channels: Swap channels to accommodate your setup. When cabling or the location of your power outlet requires the active speaker to be placed on the right, TUK makes it easy to maintain proper stereo imaging by giving you the ability to swap the left and right channels. No extension cord necessary.
Advanced Signal Detection: Never miss a beat. Automatic standby and power-up modes help to conserve power when you’re away and ensure immediate playback when a wired or Bluetooth source is detected. Standby mode can also be disabled to keep your speakers on at all times.
Night Mode: Kick back with some low-key listening. TUK’s remote allows you to mute your connected subwoofer, reducing bass output in the later hours of the day. You can also eliminate distractions when the room lights are off by adjusting the brightness of the input display.
More Control Than Ever: The convenient TUK IR remote gives you unparalleled control over your sound. Quickly switch between sources, set multiple EQ preferences, and control playback while connected via Bluetooth or USB.

Kanto TUK Reviews
“With analog, digital, wireless Bluetooth, turntable, and USB computer connections, Kanto's great-sounding TUK powered bookshelf speaker is ready to rock right out of the box. Kanto's TUK proved itself to be exactly what its maker claimed: an effective, affordable, all-in-one entrée to serious audio reproduction. If I were contemplating life in a dorm room, or perhaps a small apartment, I would buy a pair in a heartbeat and consider it a steal.” Sound & Vision
“The sound quality is simply fantastic. We really do mean this. Evaluated on their own merits, and compared to other models in their price range, they offer ridiculous value. The sound quality here speaks of real care and attention to detail, and we would be stunned if you were disappointed with these. They are punchy, energetic, accomplished, and just flat-out fun to listen to. TUK speakers deliver some of the best, most precise, most detailed high-end audio we’ve encountered.” The Master Switch
