Product Description

The HS8 is a 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified nearfield studio monitor with 8" cone woofer and 1" dome tweeter. The HS-Series have the inherited universal mix-translation legacy and distinctive white cones of the industry-respected NS-10's, designed to deliver your mixes with transparent honesty. Room control and frequency response switches allow custom tailoring of the monitor's response to give you accurate performance in any environment.

High-performance Speakers and Mounting System
The elegant white-cone speakers used in the HS-series monitors deliver superlative audio performance that is further enhanced by a carefully engineered mounting system. A system of screws and a specially designed mounting ring eliminates spurious vibration and resonance, allowing the speaker to deliver its full sonic potential. Another feature that boosts woofer performance is a magnet selected to produce accurate, solid low-end response. The tweeter frames employ an advanced smooth-contour design that minimizes losses so that high-frequency details come through with remarkable accuracy. The extra thickness of the tweeter frame also minimizes resonance that can interfere with high-end clarity. The overall result is extraordinarily smooth, accurate response throughout the audio spectrum.

The Benefits of Built-in Power and Bi-amplification
Powered, bi-amplified monitor speakers simply make the most electrical and sonic sense, and that's why they have become the first choice of sound professionals the world over for near- and mid-field monitoring applications. In addition to the obvious advantage that you don't need separate power amplifiers, the fact that power and speakers are integrated in one unit means that the amplifiers can be perfectly matched to the characteristics of the speaker units used so you get consistently superior performance with any source in just about any listening environment. Bi-amplification means that separate power amplifiers are used to drive the low-mid and high-frequency speaker units, and this eliminates interaction between the units as well as the response and phase anomalies introduced by passive crossover networks. Both speaker units can function at optimum performance levels for correspondingly high overall sonic quality.

Large Magnets in an Advanced Magnetic Circuit Design
One feature of the HS-series monitors that you'll hear but are not likely to see is the extra large magnets. In combination with an advanced magnetic circuit design these magnets provide a powerful, uniform, tightly controlled flux field that results in exceptionally smooth response and dynamic capability over a wider frequency range.

Portable, Versatile Monitoring for Your Audio Workstation
All you really need for top-class stereo production capability is a good audio workstation and a pair of HS-series monitors. A system like this is not only portable and extremely easy to set up anywhere you need it, it can deliver outstanding monitoring performance that will let you get your mixes just right. The response-control features of these monitors let you tweak them for the best response no matter where you set them up.

Serious Surround Production
Although stereo is still the most common format for basic music listening, 5.1 surround has become the audio format of choice for today's advanced visual media, and is beginning to be recognized as a superior vehicle for pure musical enjoyment as well. But to properly mix and produce surround sound you need a good 5.1 monitoring system. The HS-series speakers and subwoofer are the perfect choice if you want competitive surround-monitoring performance without having to spend big-studio megabucks to get it.

Optimum Response In Any Room
Speaker response can vary greatly depending on the size, shape, and surface acoustics of the room in which they're used, as well as how they're placed within that environment. The HS8 gives you extra room-matching and speaker placement versatility with ROOM CONTROL, MID EQ, and HIGH TRIM response control switches that are specifically designed to compensate for common acoustic deficiencies and monitoring needs. The ROOM CONTROL switch, for example, can be used to compensate for the unnatural low-end exaggeration that usually occurs when speakers are placed close to walls or in corners. The MID EQ switch gives you subtle midrange boost and cut options in addition to flat response, while the HIGH TRIM switch offer the same type of response-tailoring capability for the high frequencies.

I use these monitors everyday as the main mix monitors in my busy studio. They give me the perfect mix every time. These are the best of the best.

.I was using Mackie HR824 and these give me a better idea of the midrange. Mixes transfer out of the studio better.
Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor
.Great sound. First owned studio monitors. Had some experience with KRK and I liked the sound, but felt everything just sounded great with KRK. In a way that's bad because you cannot have the best sound experience that way.
Buying these studio monitors was the best decision ever. I was hesitant because of the price, but hey if you are going to be listening to music everyday. You better have the best speakers.
Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor
.Very clean and the 8s have true/strong/clear BASS. This is the 2nd pair of 8s we have purchased--like them that much.
Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor
.I now use these for my CP5 Piano- I've tried Keyboard Amps ( Roland ) , Powered Speakers ( DXR 10 ) , and still got that hollow sound. These really bring out true Piano Top - Bottom.

I just got these HS8 speaker, and right away i love the warm natural sound. but something in the upper midrange or lower end tweeter isn't that good.. it feel as its a little diffuse and not in fase and isn't leveled with top and the bottom, I think is will be in area between 700Hz to maybe 12-1300Hz .. and this is after I has adjusted over several days in use for 2 channels audio, And one of my reference track is one of my favorite Pink Floyd from Pulse album high hopes and Hey You, and of cause Comfortably Numb, also and Dire Straits with Private investigation...
I think my old Behringer B2031A sound better in upper mid area, but old there. but the bas and top is class better on the new HS8 much more crisp and clear. the amp is also much better with dynamic.. BUT I HATE the HIGH beam car Projector in the Logo.. It light up the whole living room by its self. YAMAHA for you information, indicator light has to be dimmed and only used for signal not light up the whole ROOM.

Monitors sound cleann and the dont have exagerated low end they sound very clean
Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor
.Just plug them in and you'll hear why these are the industry standard in studio control room speakers. Incredibly clear respose across the frequency spectrum. These would be great speakers for use as external speakers for a keyboard uder as well. I may buy another pair just for that. Top of the line speaker, made very well, just a bit of a large footprint.
Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor
.The only studio monitor. Clear, colorless sound. Bigger than I thought, though...
Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor
.The only studio monitor to use. It was advertised as "like new". Not so much but I can get by the cigarette burn, scuffs and dust. It still sounds great!
