Main monitors in my studio

Vincent Black, 27.07.2016
The control room in my studio is approximately 7 meters long and 5 meters wide and I use the Yamaha HS 5s as my main monitors paired with a sub-woofer which I occasionally use to check the very lows. I absolutely love the Yamahas for mixing and they give me a very clear representation as to what is happening in my mixes. The bass response is great for a 5'' speaker and I could probably even get by without the sub which is more of a safety net for me. I used 8'' speakers in my room together with the Yamahas in the past, at the moment I don't have the larger speakers anymore and, to be honest, I don't even miss them. The mids are very pronounced and clear and if something is wrong in the mid-range the Yamahas will let you know that for sure. The highs are presented very well too allowing the listener to judge the overall balance of the mix. If you work on these monitors for a long time, pay attention to the listening level as the very present mid-range may start fatiguing your ears. If I come up with a balanced sounding mix on the Yamahas, the material almost always translates really well on other systems too. I recommend the Yamaha HS 5s to anyone looking for quality near-field monitors - these will not let you down.

Great Budget Active Monitors

02.03.2017
First set of active Monitors, previously relied on my ATH-M50x's, these were a bit if a revelation to me. For perspective I use these to make electronic music, running through a Focusrite Scarlett 6i6.

Fantastic sound, they feel very accurate, and are a joy to work with. I feel like there may be a slight lack of depth at low frequency making it sometimes difficult to mix and master low frequency instruments, but I have no other reference monitors to confirm this, only a few other similar opinions online.

Build quality is fantastic, not sure of the exact material but its solid. All inputs and knobs on the back are great quality and feel like they would last as long as a caring user will allow.

Overall I recommend these for anyone looking for a decent pair of nearfield monitors based off the legendary ns10's, without breaking the bank.
