Powered Desktop Speakers

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 a variety of matte or gloss finishes to let you personalize your space.

What is the best way to control the volume on my YU2?

Since the volume knob on the YU2 is located on the back panel, the most convenient way to adjust your volume is to turn the volume knob on the YU2 to about 50-75% (depending on your preference) and use your computer or device to adjust the volume.
