Accuracy is key to professional studio monitoring and to so this effectively, you need monitors that don't deliberately 'colour' or deceptively enhance the sound otherwise this may result a false mix which can seriously harm production. This is where the Yamaha HS8 monitor comes in. Created by Yamaha's studio monitor engineering team to deliver an exceptionally flat and accurate response that you can trust. No exaggerated bass or treble, you can be sure that if you get your mix to shine on the HS8, it will translate on any other speaker system.
The elegant white cone of the HS8 is enhanced by the carefully engineered mounting system which virtually eliminates all spurious vibration and resonance that may cloud your mix. The tweeter frames utilise an advanced smooth contour design to minimise any loss of detail and produce a detailed top end that's full of clarity. Overall, you will get a smooth and accurate representation throughout the audio spectrum.
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.
The HS8 is equally powerful in a 5.1 mix situation as well as stereo and thanks to its compact size, you can position the HS8 anywhere it's required in your studio to ensure you're in the sweet spot. To further enhance this, the HS8 comes with room control and high trim response controls to help compensate if the monitors are placed near walls or if a lift or cut of a certain range is needed to compensate for room acoustics. The HS8 is the perfect, compact studio monitor speaker that will give you an honest representation of your mix so you can be sure that what you hear is completely accurate.
