Decent budget monitors.

Alan_B, 03.06.2015
I originally bought a pair of these monitors as part of my first (budget) studio setup. I suppose they served their purpose until I got a better set of monitors but as decent reference monitors they left a bit to be desired. I think the main problem is the size - On the one hand they're great for a space-constrained studio as they're very small and compact, but on the other hand they just can't provide the same amount of bass as a larger monitor. With that said, the bass that these monitors do provide is nice and tight (but without any real weight). The mids and highs sound good although I found the mids to be a little bit too emphasised. These monitors actually feel more like satellite monitors that should be used with a subwoofer.

The build quality is excellent as you would expect from Yamaha and the monitors, despite their small size, are actually quite heavy.

Overall, these monitors are good value but if you really want to use them in a production environment then I would recommend using them in conjunction with a good set of reference headphones (or a sub).

Abh rmonitor as Nearfill and also more

Arno, 09.10.2009
The YAMAHA MSP 3 is a compact active monitor with a balanced sound image. For me two of my Bürorchner stand as a PC loudspeaker and two as a small monitor in the studio. Also for liverecording the MSP3 is due to its size a good control box, because it is packed and built up quickly.

Due to its two inputs and three connection possibilities (XLR, jack, chinch) one is also not so fast before a search for suitable adapters. Since both inputs on the loudspeaker front have a volume control, you do not always have to worry about the right input level. And if the sound picture does not fit, the two knobs (treble and bass) on the front are also quickly served. Even as a talkbox in the monitoring (thus as Interkom) can keep the box well, since the level of this box is quite decent.
