Yamaha 8" Powered HS Studio Monitor, Black Cabinet (Each): Industry-Standard Accuracy for Precise Monitoring

Ever since the 1970s, the iconic white woofer and signature sound of Yamaha's nearfield reference monitors have become a genuine industry standard for a reason - their accuracy. Unlike studio monitors with added bass or treble frequencies which may sound more flattering at first, HS Series speakers were designed to give you the most honest, precise reference possible, providing an ideal sonic platform to build on throughout the mixing process. By combining acquired knowledge and expertise with state-of-the-art sound technologies, Yamaha's speaker engineering team have examined, then optimized, every aspect that has contributed to making these monitors the most trusted in the business.

Accurate and Honest Sound

Yamaha's HS Series speakers are known for their precise and accurate sound reproduction. The HS8 monitor, with its iconic white woofer, is no exception. It is designed to provide an honest reference, free from the artificially boosted bass or treble frequencies found in other studio monitors. This allows you to mix with confidence, knowing that your tracks will translate well across various playback systems.

High-Performance Bi-Amplified Design

The HS8 features a 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified design, with an 8" cone woofer and a 1" dome tweeter. This configuration ensures a clear, detailed sound across the entire frequency spectrum, from 38Hz to 30kHz. The bi-amp system includes a 75W LF amp and a 45W HF amp, delivering a total of 120W of power for high-performance amplification.

Tailored Sound for Any Environment

To ensure optimal performance in any studio environment, the HS8 includes ROOM CONTROL and HIGH TRIM response controls. These controls allow you to adjust the monitor's output to compensate for room acoustics, reducing unwanted low-end build-up when placed near walls and tailoring the high-frequency response to suit your listening environment.

Versatile Connectivity

The HS8 is equipped with both XLR and TRS phone jack inputs, accepting balanced or unbalanced signals. This versatility allows you to connect the monitor to a wide range of audio equipment, from audio interfaces and mixers to direct connections from instruments.
