The main speaker died on me. Anyone know of a way to get it fixed? Seems like the amp/power supply died as I can hear sound if I crank my volume up WWAAAYYYYYYY past 11.

Hands down the best support from any company I've used. They've done great things for me twice now and I can't say enough thanks to them!

I got these about a year ago and love them. Was thinking about getting a pair as a Christmas present for someone. Any ideas on if we will see a drop before then?
EggymaniacYU3 and YU5 have been discontinued for almost a year so do not expect another drop. Feel free to contact our support team directly if you need any info about our new speakers!

Got my YU5 today. I use this for mainly fro TV but using any of the optical TOSLINK inputs give my left speaker (the one with amp) a loud scratchy pink noise. The right passive speaker sounds okay. My input signal is good, since using an spare external DAC (TOSLINK to 3.5mm/RCA output) sounds fine. It's kinda annoying though I expected it to have multiple line input, hence the reason I bought this for.
Edit: okay the problem comes and goes... what is wrong with it.
AhemTry switching audio settings on your TV (or source like a set top box / netflix app) to stereo or PCM and see if anything changes. It almost sounds like the bitrate / depth is being exceeded. Do you have any other optical sources you can test? Contact us directly with your TV's model number and Massdrop receipt when you can,

I received my package today (YU3 matte white). Unfortunately, I'm missing the following items.
Remote with batteries Power cord Speaker wire RCA – mini jack adapter Rubber feet
What's the next step to get these items shipped to me? I submitted a Massdrop support request, but also wanted to check here since Kanto is shipping these directly.
dknhamSorry about that, email us directly with your address and phone number and we'll send the accessories

Very excited about this drop. I hope by some miracle they arrive ahead of schedule and I look forward to more Kanto products in the future.

are these better then SoundSticks III?
Jul 27, 2017
SawrubThat's subjective. I haven't heard the SoundSticks in a long time, but I own the YU 3's and was pleasantly surprised by the sound. Will they have the upper/ mid bass of the 'Sticks? No. But I think they are much smoother, much more versatile. AND you can choose the sub you want. -j

1 shared amp?

Considering joining the drop, two questions:
1. Currently own the Swan M10s, would these be considered an upgrade? Looking for better bass extension.
2. I understand that the YU6 has better features and higher wattage, but is there any difference in sound quality between the YU5 and YU6? Specs seem to be the same.
