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 Mix Monitors Period!

What is your opinion of this product?
If you don't have a pair of these in the mix position, you better get you some!! Four monitors that I have trusted through the last thirty years... Tannoy Baby Golds, Alesis M1's (Original Unpowered), Yamaha NS10M's and Dynaudio BM6A's. After a proper break-in period, these monitors do not disappoint! Critical listening to digital streams, vinyl records, 24/192 and 24/96 mixes and finally my 16 track 2" Multitrack tape machine, I'm really happy to have purchased a pair. Articulate, accurate and no lies. Thank you AMS!!

Should have done this 10 years ago
What is your opinion of this product?
Best investment in 15 years. Great sounding monitors. They truly let the engineer hear the subtle adjustments made that are needed to separate sounds from the color shaping stages to dynamics and final mastering. If you don't have a pair..."GET-SUM"!

Awesome Speakers way worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
I purchased these a while back and have not been disappointed in any way. They have one of the best flat responses around, my mixes sound almost the same on any type of audio system. Response to a remark below. You could go out and by the lower priced Yamaha's in your post, but you failed to mention these are book shelf speakers not studio monitors. They're made for listening to everyday music. Their response is not nearly as flat as the HS8's so your mixes are going to hurt. In my opinion the HS8's are worth every penny, and I would never purchase a pair of bookshelf speakers to use as monitors.

Superb!
What is your opinion of this product?
These are exactly what I needed. They have an excellent flat response and my mixes have never sounded so spot on. Going to order the HS8S Sub next. Also I have found AMS service and products second to none. Really great company. Thank you.
