Final Link Audio has released Kanto Audio’s TUK wireless powered loudspeakers in Australia. They’re are unusual for many reasons, not the least of which is that they have a phono input.

Each pair of Kanto TUK speakers is powered by a 65-watt per channel Class-D amplifier that drives two 133mm aluminium-coned bass drivers and two 28×35mm AMT tweeters via a DSP active crossover network. ‘The inclusion of digital signal processing has not only allowed Kanto’s engineers to tune the speakers exactly they wanted them to sound, it enables them to improve low-end resolution by filtering out frequencies below 80Hz whenever the TUK is connected to a subwoofer,’ said Shane Lewis, of Final Link Audio. ‘This frees-up TUK’s built-in amplifiers to focus solely on the midrange and highs. Quick, dynamic transients have more impact and accuracy, and TUK can play louder without introducing additional distortion.’

In addition to wired analogue and digital (optical and USB, both of which support up to 24-bit/96kHz), you can also connect wirelessly to the TUK via Bluetooth 4.2 (aptX HD) or AAC. The TUK doesn’t only provide DSP EQ settings, it also allows you to store different settings for each input, so you could keep the bass bumped up while gaming or streaming, and maintain a flat EQ when playing back vinyl. ‘These speakers are amazing people all over the world not least because of the amazingly low price,’ said Lewis. ‘The TUK will be a 2020 multi-award winner for sure.

Available now, the Kanto Audio TUK wireless powered loudspeakers retail for $1,299 (RRP) per pair.
