Check the cable is firmly pushed in on the woofer. If moved a lot or pushed against a wall it can become partly dislodged

Hi
Get yourself some decent full range speakers .
You will not look back.
The Genos system is like a transister radio for sound and too expensive for what it is .
300 for a mediocre system  is throwing money away. Also comes with cheap battery wires, unbelievably making mugs of us.

We pay 5000 nearly for a decent machine and a 1000 on speakers is cheap in comparison.
700 more than Genos speakers
BUT!!!! they will last you through the next three or four Genos'es and you will make that money up  and more by then.
To me that makes common sense.

Well this is my opinion only  :) 8)

Don't know anyone who paid any where near 5000 for there Genos and a lot are happy with there speakers. I find mine ample for home playing and only use larger speakers on Gigs.

Hi Eileen
Even 4000 for a keyboard deserves good speakers
I have realized cutting corners never pays in the long run.
I know that you are happy with the Genos speakers, but I found them very sub-standard for the price.
I find the Genos speakers tinny and not a nice rounded sound.
Well as I said ,that is my opinion only and hopefully not offensive to others.
I have found over time that  if you pay for quality, music is much better at lower volumes and does not hurt your ears and gives you that warm sound. :)

All the Best
John :)

I as well was not satisfied with the Genos factory speakers. They are nice for what they are though, for sure.

I tried many types and styles of speaker setups. Literally, money was no object...I just wanted to know what was really going to do the trick and then find out how to afford them later. :)

Turns out one of the lower cost options was the sweet spot for me. Two LD-Systems Maui 5 line array powered speakers are completely awesome. I have a review in the proper section here in the forum you can check out.

I don't see an LD-Systems Maui dealer anywhere close to Toronto. Are there any Canadian dealers?

There wasn't a dealer anywhere within two states for me. They came highly recommended enough by people here on the forum that I ordered one sight unseen to see what it was like before I got a second one.

Believe it not, I got mine on Amazon. Free 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime, a decent return policy, and they gave me a 4-year extended warranty for $70!

For the money, I don't think there's much of a comparison. The Maui 5 wins hands down at $550 US.

Reviews I have seen for Maui 5s are very favorable, and so easy to transport and set up.  Even more favorable for the Maui 11s which still cost less than the Bose. Definitely seem to be a well made product. One review of the 11s talked about crystal clear sound with no feedback in a gig of close to 200 peaple. Impressive.

That's all true Mike. I never got a chance to see, touch, or hear the first one I bought before it arrived. I talked to several members on here who raved about them, so in the end, I just took the plunge, closed my eyes and hit the buy button. :)

From the moment I plugged in my Genos and played for about 30 seconds, I knew there was going to be another one on the way. To me, they sound like they were made for the Genos

Transporting is so, so easy. The speaker stick breaks down into three pieces that slide into a bag you can easily carry in one hand. You slide the other cover over the sub and there's s built-in handle. One in one hand, and one in the other. Easy and light to carry the whole thing. Setup and tear down take about 90 seconds.

There are built-in compression and anti-feedback processing. The bass reproduction is big and solid. I've not been able to stay in the room long enough to turn it up to its full potential, it's too painfully loud as you near that point.

The company who makes them LD systems, seem like a very high tech German company. One of their speaker systems was designed in collaboration with Porsche. I thought they were some kind of Bose copycat fly by night, but in looking into them I obviously got that wrong.

From what I understand they do all the designing at their facility in Germany and then the manufacturing it done in China, which keeps the prices down.

I play out with my Yamaha Genos and before that, I did use my Tyros5, then at the time, I had 4 Bose Compacts and performed at a large place and I use all 4 and barely made it....then, I got 2 Maui LD 5s...and ONLY 2 fill the same big place and sound much better and I can get a better bass response than the 4 Compacts, so, I sold all 4 Compacts, and now it has been almost 2 years and I am very happy with the performance of this gear, I play between 11 to 18 dances at month, and NEVER had an issue with the LD5s, I would recommend them highly. I use a small Mixer Yamaha MG 6 and the outputs to the LD 5s.....sweet sound.

My 2 Cents.

The Maui 5s sure look interesting. There are no Canadian dealers. I won't buy anything without listening first. They can be had for around $850 each, on Amazon.ca.

Perhaps I should become a Canadian dealer. It's funny how Canada is always placed on the back burner. We're always last to receive new products. Seems like the whole world could care less about us, until they need our armed forces or simply want to move here for our low crime rate and very generous social programs. That's all for today's rant ;D!

Hi Axedarren28,

I also have the GNS-MS01 speaker system and it failed twice in eight months. Yamaha replaced the subwoofer both times, but their explanation for why it failed was unsatisfactory. The repair person said that the DIN cable had become bent which caused the subwoofer to "burn." I contacted Yamaha support and they repeated to me what the repair person said, and they implied that I had damaged the cable, which I did not. So now I'm afraid the system will fail a third time and it will be out of warranty.

The slider you mention is for the volume of two songs you have cued to play and you can then fade one song out and bring in the other one. Rather like a DJ dose. It has nothing to do with speaker volumes.
