    I have always said it like YOUR - A

    EI - like Neighbor or Weigh

    (but - if not, it wouldn't be the first time I pronounced something wrong)

    I realize it's simply an acronym for United Recording Electronics Industries, but I've never heard it pronounced "U—R—E—I, like JBL. So what is the accepted way to say it? "Youree" or "Youreye"? Something else?

    Anxious to put this one to rest!

    Having been a user of UREI equalizers and compressors from before they even made speakers we called them Your-E.

    Same here! ( with a slight upward-tilting inflection on the "E" for emphasis >> though that might well have been the Quebec influence )

    In my corner of the world I’ve always heard it pronounced the way that Rusty said. The same as saying Yuri.

    Ay as in neighbor, ee as in Yuri—both good choices. I always favored aye as in heist, but then
    I like caper movies. The common practice is best, because getting it right shows how plugged-in you are, but since it's not really a word, none are really wrong. Any will be understood.
