Yamaha HS8 Active Studio Monitor in Black
The Yamaha HS8s are the big brother of the HS monitor series, offering the bass, volume and clout required for high-volume studio monitoring and beatmaking. A wide, balanced frequency response ensures these are suitable for a wide range of genres and musical styles, whilst offering a more bassy, low-end response perfect for larger studio rooms or electronic musicians.
The Legacy Lives On
Go to almost any major studio in the world and you're likely to find a pair of Yamaha's famous NS-10M monitor speakers. Acknowledged by professional sound engineers and producers to deliver an unflinchingly honest reflection of your mixes. The redesigned HS series builds on this legacy by providing similar detail and accuracy, in a more convenient Active enclosure.
The redesigned HS models feature an advanced Low Resonance bass-reflex enclosure built around a traditional three-way mitered joint technique. This technique, often associated with the most sophisticated architectural design, sees the corners of the speaker very firmly anchored, leading to dramatically improved durability and the elimination of any unwanted resonance that can colour the original sound.
Yamaha engineers have designed and produced new transducers that deliver exceptionally clear, natural and detailed sound. The new transducers deploy Yamaha's advanced magnetic field design to more efficiently regulate the flow of magnetic response, contributing significantly to the purity of the sound.
Adaptive EQ Control
The Yamaha HS8s feature a rear switch for Room control and High Trim response. Depending on the size and shape of your room, you can cut the low frequency response by -2dB or -4dB, further helping to eliminate unwanted 'boom' and resonance in smaller room setups. The High Trim allows you to Boost or Cut the high frequencies at 2kHz to compensate.
