Kanto introduces ORA speaker

Canadian loudspeaker manufacturer Kanto Audio has released its ORA, a compact desktop speaker which it says is ideal for listening to music, gaming or for use as a home or remote recording studio monitor.

With separate amplifiers for the mid/bass driver and tweeter, ORA features Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, analogue line inputs and a USB-C input. It delivers a claimed 50W of bi-amplified Class D power. When using the USB-C input, ORA can accept hi-res audio files up to and including 24-bit/96kHz.

ORA also includes a subwoofer output, with a claimed built-in automatic crossover at 100Hz that high-passes the speaker and low-passes the sub-out, “enabling seamless integration with a powered subwoofer – such as the Kanto SUB8”.

Each of ORA’s magnetically shielded speakers feature a 76mm paper cone mid/bass driver and 19mm silk dome Waveguide-mounted tweeter.

Measuring 100 x 175 141mm (WxHxD) and weighing 1kg per cabinet, ORA can be wall-mounted or used with Kanto’s dedicated S2, SE2 or SP9 speaker stands – which are sold separately and priced at £25, £30 and £66 respectively.

Available to buy now for £300, you can find out more about the Kanto ORA here.
