What's the difference between this and the YUMI?

YUMI is a bit "warmer" sounding, more pronounced midrange and smoother high end. The YUMI's are a bit more realistic sounding when listening to live instruments due to its more accurate tweeters. YU5's work well as desktop / nearfield speakers since they have a more relaxed midrange whereas I think the YUMI's excel in a two-channel audio / home theatre situation. Other than that they have similar features with the YU5 getting louder due to it's higher power class-D amp.

I know you guys are based on vancouver, and I live in Toronto, will I be hit with custom fees and import tax when I order from massdrop?

You will not get hit with fees, we are shipping all Canadian orders from within Canada.

Hmm, my expected usage will be movies/TV/music in a small room, to improve on TV speakers. Music tastes are jazz, classic rock and country - sounds like a Yumi is more my speed. Gonna bring one of those out to Mass? ;)

I can't say for sure what we'll be bringing to Massdrop, I am but a lowly customer service rep that spends too much time on the internet.

You had previously compared the YUMI's to the YU5, saying that the YUMI's have "smoother high end" that is "more realistic sounding when listening to live instruments due to its more accurate tweeters". Do both systems feature the same 1" silk dome tweeter - just tuned differently? Do the models' different amps, woofers, and DSP contribute to their sound differences? Could you please explain? Thanks.

Different tweeter, driver, and amp type all contribute to this difference in sound signature between YUMI and YU5.

Could you tell me what you mean by the YUMI's having "smoother high end", "more realistic sounding", " more accurate tweeters"?

Not sure how to clarify this more but I'll try. The YUMI has nicer sounding tweeters (in my opinion) than the YU5 which means the high end is more smooth and natural sounding. The tweeters on the YU5 sound brighter (to me) which means the high end is more pronounced and less detailed.
