Sad but I just ordered and received a pair of blemished UniFi UB5 speakers from Amazon and one of them has a very loud piece rattling around inside. As best I can tell there is no issue with sound reproduction. Amazon is out of stock so I can’t reorder. Customer service is closed so I will call them tomorrow to arrange a replacement.
I bought the ELAC Uni-fi UB5 Bookshelf Speakers in Aug 2017. They have probably 50hrs on them so not a lot. Because from very early on I have been struggling to fix the distortion, rattling and buzzing type of sounds at that I get at just slightly higher volumes. I have switched the interconnects from left to right, switched receivers (modern Yamaha, vintage Yamaha) and also tried the Schiit Vidar Amplifier. Distortion does not go away. When I use different Elac speakers I don’t hear the distortion.
It looks like the problem is with the speakers. Please help. The hype on the speakers is probably true but my challenge is that I seem to have a bad pair. Yes both show this behavior as far as I can tell. Disappointed. Have also written to customer service.
