Kanto ORA Overview

These little powerhouses are all about delivering top-tier sound and modern convenience, catering to creators, gamers, musicians, and anyone who appreciates exceptional audio quality.
Kanto ORA Performance - Reference Quality Sound
The Kanto ORA doesn't disappoint with its 100W of DSP-tuned, bi-amplified Class-D power. Surprisingly, those 3" woofers deliver deep, rich bass, defying their compact size. Kanto wanted to create desktop speakers that deliver big sound in a small package, and the Kanto ORA does just that. They're versatile for both studio monitoring and everyday listening.
There are two tracks that I’m very familiar with, one that I produced myself and another that I use as a reference when testing out the accuracy and dynamics of sound. On the track that I produced, the Kanto ORAs absolutely reproduced the sound in a way that I, as the artist, intended. On the reference track, I was also impressed with the ORAs performance. The separation, clarity, and dynamics of these speakers are fantastic. All major wow factors for their size. They kept up with speakers that are, in some cases, triple the price.
The Kanto ORA speakers are connectivity champs. They offer three input options: USB-C, Bluetooth® 5.0, and RCA. Use USB-C for a direct, high-quality connection to your PC or Mac. Bluetooth 5.0 allows wireless pairing with your phone or other smart devices, giving you that extra convenience. And the RCA input lets you hook up analog gear, making these speakers adaptable to a wide range of devices.
Seamless Sub Integration
If you crave even more bass, the Kanto ORA seamlessly integrates with a subwoofer. This means you can crank up the volume with minimal distortion, while the subwoofer handles the low-end frequencies.
In the world of limited desk space, the Kanto ORA's compact design is a blessing. They're much smaller than full-size bookshelf speakers, perfect for cozy workspaces. You can tuck them under your monitor or even pack them in your backpack for on-the-go recording sessions.
I love the ORAs with the SE2 speaker stands, which are a great addition at $40. They’re a must if you’re planning to use these as studio monitors.
Compatibility is key, and these speakers have you covered. They won't interfere with other equipment, thanks to their magnetically shielded drivers. So, feel free to place them near CRT or high-end PVM displays.
And if you're into creative setups, the Kanto ORA offers mounting options. Each speaker has a 1/4”-20 threaded insert at the rear, allowing for wall or ceiling mounting using compatible brackets. This means you can optimize your speaker placement for both sound and aesthetics.
