The Yamaha HS5 is a compact powered studio monitor for the home studio, or even as a second reference in a professional control room. Calling upon the styling and function of the ubiquitous NS-10M monitors made popular in the 1980s, the HS5 adds built in bi-amplification for 70W of total power pushing a 5" woofer and a 1" tweeter. The sound is true and unflattering -- if it sounds good on these speakers, it's because it sounds good everywhere.

    These are great for mixing in my home studio environment, and I'll definitely be taking them with me to a larger studio in the future. The sound is clear and responsive! Love them!

    These babies are awesome. They sound better than some of the professional studios that I have worked in. My only criticism is that there is no grill protecting the speaker. Working with kids, I will have to find a solution to this or I can expect a child's finger poking the cone and collapsing it...

    The speakers sound good. I was concerned that the 5's wouldn't be enough but they are plenty in the 10' x 12' room where I use them. I've been using headphones for a few years and the speakers are a big upgrade. It's much nicer to have my sound fill the room and be able to grove with the music as I fill out a track.
