Canadian speaker manufacturers, Kanto Audio expand their existing line-up — which includes the award winning TUK, YU6, ORA, and recently announced ORA4 — with the innovative new 100W REN Active Speakers. 

Designed to cater to a wide array of audio needs — offering a comprehensive suite of inputs — together with exceptional sound quality, REN represent a cutting-edge addition to Kanto Audio's award-winning speaker line-up.

REN features an HDMI ARC connection – the first time this has been used on a Kanto Audio speaker – enabling a seamless, high-quality connection to televisions, delivering an enhanced viewing experience. Volume can conveniently be adjusted with the supplied IR remote control.

Alongside the HDMI ARC input, the innovative Kanto Audio REN Speaker features Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity, and USB-C and Optical inputs supporting audio up to 24-bit/96kHz. The USB Type-C port allows users to connect a host of audio sources to REN Active Speakers including iPhone 15, Android devices, Digital Audio Players, PC, Mac, and more. ​

REN Active Speakers also feature both RCA Line-in and 3.5mm Mini Jack inputs, enabling connection to traditional analogue audio sources, such as tape decks, and record players with a built-in phono-stage. In addition, the Kanto Audio REN offers a dedicated Sub-out with a selectable crossover, ensuring easy integration with a powered subwoofer — such as the Kanto Audio SUB8 — is a breeze.

With REN, Kanto Audio has engineered a pair of high-performance, powerful Active Speakers — ​ ideal for listening to music, movies, video games, and much more. No matter the source, REN deliver clear highs, detailed midrange, and impressively powerful bass. ​

Kanto Audio REN are available in a choice of six colours: Black, White, Cream, Green, Brown, and Orange.


Kanto Audio will be showing REN at the Bristol Hi-Fi Show Fri 23rd - Sun 25th February.

Kanto Audio REN Desktop Speakers will be available from July, priced £499 / €579 / $599 / CA$799 per pair
