Product Description

The Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor yields remarkably flat response from an 8 inch and 1 inch tweeter that have been redesigned by the engineers at Yamaha to deliver uncompromising response so you can perfect your mixes! The HS8 active monitor is ideal for studios that want accurate low end response without an additional sub.

Professional and hobbyist producers and musicians all over the world love Yamaha HS series monitors because of their flat response that doesn’t boost any frequency. The bottom line is, once you get the mix to sound good on these, it will sound good anywhere!

Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor Features
  • 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified nearfield studio monitor
  • 8 inch cone woofer and 1 inch dome tweeter
  • 38Hz - 30kHz frequency response
  • 75W LF plus 45W HF bi-amp system for high-performance 120W power amplification
  • ROOM CONTROL and HIGH TRIM response controls
  • XLR and TRS phone jack inputs accept balanced or unbalanced signals
When choosing reference monitors for mixing and music production, accuracy is the prime consideration. Speakers that sound good on first impression may not necessarily be accurate. What you really need is an honest reference for your mix, rather than monitors that have been tweaked or colored to deceptively sound impressive.

The Yamaha HS8 active reference monitors have been created by Yamaha's studio monitor engineering team to deliver exceptionally flat, accurate response that you can trust. Unlike monitor speakers with exaggerated bass and treble that make a good first impression but can't be relied on for accuracy, the HS series were designed to be true studio reference monitors in the tradition of the legendary Yamaha NS10M.

Newly Developed Transducers
The Yamaha HS Series studio monitors feature newly developed transducers that achieve astonishingly smooth response over a wide range of bandwidth. These transducers utilize an advanced magnetic field design that regulates the flow of magnetic response to provide seamless, natural sonic transitions. Each component's materials and design were carefully re-examined, then optimized, to drastically improve the accuracy of signal reproduction throughout the audio spectrum.

Great monitors!

Product Review

These monitors are outstanding, I’m truly satisfied with the level of performance. They’re very true to sound with a powerful punch that will take both your work and listening experience to a completely new level! AMS also offers great deals if you’re looking for items for a good price, you can also enroll in monthly interest free payment plans (which I’m currently using). If you’re contemplating purchasing a pair then I’m here to tell you to make the purchase it’s worth every dime plus more!!

Bigger and More Powerful Than Expected

Product Review

These speakers pack a very strong and clear punch into their 8-inch frame. The mids and highs sound very accurate and even without a sub woofer there is a decent amount of bass boom. I can see why these are the top of the line in the HS series. Very tolerable sound -- not too harsh or bright but not muddy either. I can definitely see how these have become an industry standard.

Awesome monitors

Product Review

These are amazing. Perfect for mixing on. Very true mix. The room shaping capabilities are great but i leave them off for my control room. I'd buy these again if something bad happened to them.

Top of the line product for the beat quality.

Product Review

The Yamaha HS 8 has made a dramatic difference in how I create my musical production. The quality I produce is at its highest now! I was unsure at first because the brand of monitors I had before these were my favorite until I came across the HS8!
