When choosing reference monitors for mixing and music production, accuracy is the prime consideration. Speakers that sound "good" on first impression may not necessarily be accurate. What you really need is an honest reference for your mix, rather than monitors that have been tweaked or colored to deceptively sound impressive.The new HS series reference monitors have been created by Yamaha's studio monitor engineering team to deliver exceptionally flat, accurate response that you can trust. Unlike "monitor" speakers with exaggerated bass and treble that make a good first impression but can't be relied on for accuracy, the HS series were designed to be true studio reference monitors in the tradition of the legendary Yamaha NS10M.Whether you're mixing for stereo or 5.1 surround, mixes that sound good on Yamaha HS series reference monitors will translate accurately to the widest possible range of reproduction systems ... which is engineer-speak that simply means they'll sound good on anything. And that is the ultimate goal of any reference monitor. We should also mention that the HS-series monitors not only sound great, they look great, too.

  • Amazing Reference Monitor
  • December 08, 2014
  • By: Andy

The HS series studio monitors are an incredible deal. At a bi-amped 75W, they supply more than enough sound for almost any mixing environment. The cabinets are brilliantly constructed with three-way mitered joints to eliminate unwanted resonance that typically comes from joints on plastic enclosures. They reproduce sound very faithfully, and are the best reference monitors for the value. They work perfectly as home speakers for pro keyboards as well. The low frequency of 54Hz is plenty for most; if you need more low end, opt for the HS7 (43Hz) or the HS8 (38Hz), or better yet, pair them with the amazing HS 8S subwoofer for a 22-150Hz boost.
