Great Speakers

28.02.2017
I've bought these speakers pirmarily to use as home studio monitors. They perform great for any size room that I have found, because of the filter switches at the back, and because of their size the bass does not get lost in a bigger room. Also the clarity is excellent.

Intitially I debated between getting the HS8 vs HS7 speakers. Some people advised to getting the smaller speakers if you are in a smaller room. But for me I wanted to make sure if I moved my setup to another location that I would have the headroom to play with in volume and bass. In a smaller room you can always turn down the gain, but in a bigger setup if I needed to push the output that might be a problem. And for this flexability I'm totally satisfied with my decision.

Sound quailty is great. I have not had any other monitors to compare it to but when I listen to tracks, even high-quality youtube video I can hear nuances and details from other instruments in a performance that I did not know existed in the mix before. So to me this is an indication of its great quality. How they sound is greatly influenced by how well you have setup your room for the speakers. So I made sure my room, and the speaker setup was up to standard. Becuase bad reflections and other noise can greatly reduce the clarity you hear.

Also I needed to get used to the flat resonse of the speakers, because my ear is so used to the over-hyped bass response of all the commercial speakers. But for a mixing monitor, that is the reason you buy it, not to throw a basement party.

great piece of equipment

08.01.2017
So I use this speakers at home instead of a Hi-fi system. I decided to go for studio monitors mainly to avoid external amplifiers and compared to commercial compact systems, audio quality is off the roof.

Sound is really clear and sharp. Nothing feels overpowered, there is a good frequency balance and it feels flat indeed.
I used different inputs so far with all having the same performance. Direct connection to a Mac with a basic stereo cable, connected to a mixer and then to a Mac and a turntable and also with a TV. I also tried them in different rooms. In a small apartment base can be too much and you will probably need some sort of base traps. In bigger rooms on the other hand, base can be lost. I also tried them in an outdoors space where base was almost non existent.
I have to say, these speakers are loud.
All music genres where well received and the same goes for movies.

They look really really good. The illuminating Yamaha logo looks awesome. Built quality is really nice, they feels strong and durable. They are quite heavy but that's expected.

Pros:
Great sound
Great quality and looks
Very descent price

Cons:
Not magnetically sealed and it's possible to get noise interference from cellphones
Air canals are in the back meaning you can't place them against a wall
All controls are located on the back and it's not ideal to turn them on and off everyday.

All in all I highly recommend these if you have the space and the money. I'm not a producer so I can't talk about performance in a professional environment, but as an audiophile I love these speakers.
