Hi Richmit, welcome to yamahamusicians.com :)

I would LIKE to say yes you can use Genos speakers on a Tyros 5 however, knowing Yamaha the leads that connect the speakers to the keyboard are probably different. I can contact Yamaha to confirm but someone may give the answer before they get back to me.

((i)) ((i)) You're WAY ahead of me there Saul . . . . .

It's my opinion that Flagship boards head the list of instruments most likely to be bought by serious musicians (Pros) - who are most likely to be ANNOYED by the presence of proprietary connectors - when Industry-standard ones will do just fine . . . .

Obviously, manufacturers are "in it" to make money, but Pros like to be able to make their own decisions about what they use - (they generally have "broader view" of what's available) and don't like to be constrained by this sort of thing.

If the product is being pointed at the High End market - then let it be so equipped . . . . . .

(Just my opinion, of course) :wink:

I would so love to be wrong about this Chris.

I imagine the speakers are pretty much the same but the leads...being the cheaper part were changed to make people buy into the Genos Speakers...or Tyros 5 speakers depending on which way your coming at it from.

Yamaha always seem to go down the proprietary route even knowing it is going to make life difficult for their customers. I know profit is king these days but profit over customer satisfaction? Does that really make any sense?

It is SO annoying. Yamaha DO KNOW how to make Speakers - and Good ones too!

So Why oh Why alienate people by proprietising this stuff?

The flipside to the argument is that if you make them Industry-standard - (and they ARE GOOD . . . .)

Non-Yamaha owners may well BUY them AS WELL . . . . . ?

Now THERE's a thought???? :roll:

Genos original speakers (Yamaha GNS-MS01) will not work with Tyros 5 (or 4,3,2,1). Have checked this with Yamaha official support. Go buy Yamaha HS7 or HS8, they are maybe a 100$ more expensive than GNS or TRS set, but the sound is waaaay better, HS7/8 are balanced studio speakers.

BR;P
