A Take from an Expert Audiophile
“Having spent considerable time with the Kanto YUP6 speakers, I’m thoroughly impressed by their performance which stands head and shoulders above what you might expect at this price point. The bass detail and articulation are a highlight, delivering a level of precision and depth that belies the speakers’ compact dimensions. The midrange, too, is a standout feature, offering clear and articulate reproduction of vocals and instruments alike, with just the right touch of presence to give the sound a live, immediate feel.
The tweeter’s performance adds to the YUP6’s appeal, providing highs that are smooth and airy, with a sparkle that enhances detail without tipping into harshness. This careful balance ensures that even after long listening sessions, fatigue doesn’t set in. The soundstage these speakers present is another area where they excel, offering a wide and immersive soundscape with excellent instrument separation, making it easy to pick out individual elements in complex tracks.
In sum, the Kanto YUP6 speakers offer an audio experience that’s both engaging and balanced across the frequency spectrum. Their ability to deliver such high-quality sound in a compact and affordable package makes them an outstanding choice for audiophiles and casual listeners alike. It’s this combination of performance, value, and versatility that makes the YUP6 a standout in its category, and a pair of speakers I find myself returning to with enthusiasm.”

cial to wire them correctly to avoid damaging your equipment. In this scenario, you’re using two Kanto YUP4 speakers, which are 4-ohm speakers, and you plan to connect them to an Onkyo TX-NR5100 receiver. Here’s a breakdown of the correct process and some key considerations:
- Wiring in Series: To use two speakers as one center channel, you should wire them in series. This involves connecting the positive terminal of the first speaker to the negative terminal of the second speaker. The remaining free terminals (negative on the first speaker and positive on the second) will then connect to the receiver. When wired in series, the speakers’ total impedance adds up.
- Impedance Consideration: Wiring two 4-ohm speakers in series results in a total impedance of 8 ohms. This is because the resistances add up in a series configuration (4 ohms + 4 ohms = 8 ohms). It’s essential to ensure that your receiver can handle this impedance level to prevent any damage.
- Compatibility: The Onkyo TX-NR5100 is compatible with an 8-ohm load, making it suitable for this setup. Nonetheless, always verify the manufacturer’s specifications if you plan to use a different receiver.
- Sound Quality and Balance: When using two speakers as a single center channel, positioning them correctly is important to maintain sound quality. They should be placed near each other, at the same height, and angled appropriately relative to the listening area.
By adhering to these guidelines, you can effectively use two Kanto YUP4 speakers as a center channel with your Onkyo TX-NR5100 receiver, thus improving your audio experience while safeguarding your equipment from potential harm.
