Kanto Audio announces REN: High Performance 100W Active Speakers with HDMI ARC


Featuring Bluetooth 5.3, USB-C and optical inputs supporting 24-bit/96kHz, remote control, analogue RCA line-in, and dedicated Sub-out. Available in a choice of 6 colours from July, priced per pair at £499 / €579 / $599 / CA$799

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

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

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 to deliver an enhanced viewing / listening experience. Its volume can be conveniently 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, including an iPhone 15, Android devices, Digital Audio Players, a 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.

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, a 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, Friday February 23rd – Sun 25th.

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