Hi Everyone,

I'm new around here so please be patient...

I am considering buying a U3 or YUS5 and I went down to the showroom earlier this week. I found the U3 to be very muffled and unresponsive. Is this typical of a U3? Also, I would like to know when the YUS5 model was first rolled out? because I can't find any information on that on the web.
