Yamaha HS5 Active Studio MonitorYamaha's new range of HS monitors are designed to carry on the philosophy of the iconic NS-10s - if your mixes sound good on these speakers, they will sound good anywhere! They were even designed by the same person as the legendary NS-10s! However, rather than colouring your mix as the original NS-10s did (which made them good as a secondary pair of reference monitors but not ideal for use as a primary pair), Yamaha HS monitors give an accurate representation of your tracks, allowing you to make confident decisions about how best to make tweaks in order to get them sounding professional. Of course, referencing your mix on as many systems as possible is still advisable, including poorer systems that colour your tracks, but having a set of monitors that give a 'true' representation is always the most important ingredient of any mixing studio.

Yamaha HS monitors come in three different models: the smallest is the HS5 (with a 5" woofer), then there's the HS7 (with a larger 6.5" woofer) and finally there is the HS8, with an extended bass response due to its 8" woofer. In fact, there is also a HS8S subwoofer for reaching deeper into those wall-shaking bass frequencies for 2.1 and 5.1 set-ups.

We've recently had a large delivery of Yamaha HS monitors so they are now available to buy! We've also created a selection of money-saving bundles, which include cables and isolation pads (which help reduce unwanted acoustic artefacts caused by having the speakers resting on a hard surface). They also feature Room and Trim controls on the rear, which allows you to configure the low and high response of the speaker for optimum use in different environments.

Yamaha HS speakers are already receiving rave reviews for their detailed sound and flat response and one of the best pieces of news is that they're priced very competitively!

  • I use HS5s as my mobile monitors for my 'pop-up' analog studio and then a pair of HS7s back at base when I need a little more bottom end punch. Both perform well outside their price point and reference well through my ATB16 Toft which is quite a revealing desk. A very good buy - exceptional for the price and a 'must have' if you are fans of the legendary NS-10s.
