Overview:YU2

Music is made to be shared.

Proudly designed in Canada, the YU2 desktop mini-monitor will make you believe that big sound can come in a small package. With its built-in soundcard, it can stream high-quality audio directly from your computer’s USB port, or connect directly to any 3.5mm AUX jack for maximum input flexibility. 3” composite drivers ensure a distortion-free bass and midrange, while the 3/4” silk dome tweeters effortlessly produce scintillating highs. A specially tuned bass-port on the rear extends the low end while keeping airflow away from your active workspace. If deep bass is your thing, simply connect a subwoofer to the SUB OUT port and revel in pure low-end bliss. Available in matte or gloss finishes to personalize your space.



High-performance materials. Exceptional sound.

Silk Dome Tweeters
YU2’s 3/4-inch tweeters are made from silk to deliver a high-frequency range that’s bright and refined. Their dome shape improves sound dispersion to ensure your ears capture every sound, regardless of where you are in the room.

Kevlar Drivers
Well-known for its strength and rigidity, Kevlar ensures accurate sound reproduction even at higher volumes. Crank your favorite tunes without sacrificing performance.


Designed for your desktop.

Featuring a built-in DAC, YU2 lets you connect directly to your computer via USB. Eliminate any interference that your computer’s onboard soundcard may pick-up while enjoying a fully digital, high-quality audio connection.
