The Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor (White, Single) is a bi-amplified monitor that is designed for accurate sound reproduction. It is capable of up to 120W of total output and features a 203 mm woofer and a 25 mm tweeter with waveguide that can produce frequencies up to 30kHz. The HS8 has both an XLR and 1/4" TRS input that accept either balanced or unbalanced signals for integration into a variety of studio setups.


Low Resonance Enclosure Design

HS Series cabinets are designed to eliminate unwanted resonance and increase the accuracy of sound reproduction to their extreme limit. The enclosures are constructed from a dense MDF with a damped acoustic response. HS Series engineers also employed a traditional three-way mitred-joint technique. Common to architectural design, this construction firmly anchors the corners of the enclosure to improve durability and eliminate unwanted resonance that can influence overall sound

Noise Reduction Technology

Speaker port design can greatly influence the clarity of overall sound. Often a vortex at the either end of the port can generate air vibrations inside of the port, causing unwanted noise. By adopting a noise reduction technology that incorporates an analysis of a visual representation of the sound, Yamaha's engineers are able to control and reduce the vortex. Through this analysis Yamaha has arrived at a port design that reduces noise up to 6dB

Controls and Connectivity

HS Series full-range models feature two response controls with settings that allow them to adapt to the surface acoustics of rooms of varying shape and size. ROOM CONTROL allows you to attenuate the unnatural, exaggerated low-end that can often occur when speakers are placed next to walls, while HIGH TRIM allows for more flexible control of high frequency response. For inputs, HS full-range speakers can accommodate a range of balanced and unbalanced sources such as mixers, keyboards and audio interfaces with XLR and TRS phone jacks

    Fantastic speakers. Two weeks in without issue. Make sure your interface can run balanced cables! Mine can't so I'm getting a bit of crackle. (It's the cable's fault-- not the speakers). Speaker placement also matters loads with these. I tried rearranging them from my initial positioning and it made them sound worse! (Where I put them kind of functioned as a bass trap so they were super muddy before I moved them back.) So be sure to check both these things, and if you're unimpressed with the sound when you set them up, try changing their position, if you can. Super clear, super level. (Well, at least compared to what I was using before!!)
