HS8 Powered Studio Monitor from Yamaha

The HS8 Powered Studio Monitor from Yamaha is a bi-amplified monitor that is designed for accurate sound reproduction. It is capable of up to 120W of total output & has an 8-inch woofer & a 1-inch tweeter with waveguide that can reproduce frequencies up to 30 kHz. The HS8 has an XLR & 1/4″ TRS input that accept either balanced or unbalanced signals for integration into a variety of professional and home studio and music production setups.

Low Resonance Enclosure

HS8 speaker cabinets are designed to reduce unwanted resonance & increase the accuracy of sound reproduction to their extreme limit. The enclosures are constructed from a dense MDF with a damped acoustic response. HS Series engineers also employed a traditional three-way mitered-joint technique. Common to architectural design, this construction firmly anchors the corners of the enclosure resulting in improved durability & elimination of unwanted resonances that can negatively influence the sound.

Noise Reduction Technology

Speaker port design can greatly influence the clarity of overall sound. Often a vortex at the either end of the port can generate air vibrations inside of the port, causing unwanted noise. By utilizing a noise reduction technology that incorporates an analysis of a visual waveform of the sound, Yamaha’s engineers are able to control & reduce the vortex. Through this analysis Yamaha has arrived at a port design that reduces noise up to 6 decibels.

Controls & Connectivity

HS Series full-range models feature two response controls with settings that allow them to change response to the surface acoustics of rooms of varying shape & size. “ROOM CONTROL” allows you to attenuate the unnatural, exaggerated low-end that can often happen when speakers are placed next to walls, while “HIGH TRIM” allows for more flexible control of high frequency response. For inputs, HS full-range speakers can accommodate a range of balanced & unbalanced sources such as keyboards, mixers, & audio interfaces with XLR & TRS inputs.
