We have collaborated with the innovative folks at Kanto to bring you an exciting competition for a chance to win a pair of TUK active bookshelf loudspeakers worth £799.
Our Editor Alan Sircom reviewed the TUK in Hi-Fi+ issue #174 where he wrote, “The TUK (pronounced, paying very close attention to autocorrect, ‘tuck’) is an active Class D two-way, rear-ported loudspeaker, with an electronic crossover network that rolls off at 80Hz in that event of a subwoofer being connected (this doesn’t auto-detect, you need to tell the TUK about the sub from the remote handset). Otherwise, Kanto claims a 50Hz lower frequency point from the 133mm aluminium cone woofer, and in room – unless that room is a barn – that figure is achievable and surprisingly realistic.”
He went on to say, “The TUK system uses one active and one passive loudspeaker separated– perhaps unsurprisingly – by speaker connectors and cable. By default, the active speaker is the left channel, but you can swap over by pressing and holding the ‘Previous Track’ button on the remote for five seconds. You can also enable or disable the auto power up or power down from the remote. The TUK takes about six seconds to wake up or go to sleep.”
He concluded the review by saying, “I was extremely impressed by the Kanto TUK. It’s a very professional package with a very big, very powerful sound for so small a loudspeaker. It doesn’t rely on a tweaked balance to deliver that sound, and the overall balance of both the performance of the inputs and the quality of the drivers is such that they all work in a kind of dynamic balance. Top stuff!”
