Two-way bass-reflex bi-amplified nearfield studio monitor with 6.5" cone.

The Yamaha HS7 is a 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified nearfield studio monitor with 6.5" cone woofer and 1" dome tweeter. The Yamaha HS-Series have the inherited universal mix-translation legacy and distinctive white cones of the industry-respected NS-10's, designed to deliver your mixes with transparent honesty. Room control and frequency response switches allow custom tailoring of the monitor's response to give you accurate performance in any environment.

High-performance Speakers and Mounting System
The elegant white-cone speakers used in the HS-series monitors deliver superlative audio performance that is further enhanced by a carefully engineered mounting system. A system of screws and a specially designed mounting ring eliminates spurious vibration and resonance, allowing the speaker to deliver its full sonic potential. Another feature that boosts woofer performance is a magnet selected to produce accurate, solid low-end response. The tweeter frames employ an advanced smooth-contour design that minimizes losses so that high-frequency details come through with remarkable accuracy. The extra thickness of the tweeter frame also minimizes resonance that can interfere with high-end clarity. The overall result is extraordinarily smooth, accurate response throughout the audio spectrum.

The Benefits of Built-in Power and Bi-amplification
Powered, bi-amplified monitor speakers simply make the most electrical and sonic sense, and that's why they have become the first choice of sound professionals the world over for near- and mid-field monitoring applications. In addition to the obvious advantage that you don't need separate power amplifiers, the fact that power and speakers are integrated in one unit means that the amplifiers can be perfectly matched to the characteristics of the speaker units used so you get consistently superior performance with any source in just about any listening environment. Bi-amplification means that separate power amplifiers are used to drive the low-mid and high-frequency speaker units, and this eliminates interaction between the units as well as the response and phase anomalies introduced by passive crossover networks. Both speaker units can function at optimum performance levels for correspondingly high overall sonic quality.

Large Magnets in an Advanced Magnetic Circuit Design
One feature of the HS-series monitors that you'll hear but are not likely to see is the extra large magnets. In combination with an advanced magnetic circuit design these magnets provide a powerful, uniform, tightly controlled flux field that results in exceptionally smooth response and dynamic capability over a wider frequency range.

Portable, Versatile Monitoring for Your Audio Workstation
All you really need for top-class stereo production capability is a good audio workstation and a pair of HS-series monitors. A system like this is not only portable and extremely easy to set up anywhere you need it, it can deliver outstanding monitoring performance that will let you get your mixes just right. The response-control features of these monitors let you tweak them for the best response no matter where you set them up.

Serious Surround Production
Although stereo is still the most common format for basic music listening, 5.1 surround has become the audio format of choice for today's advanced visual media, and is beginning to be recognized as a superior vehicle for pure musical enjoyment as well. But to properly mix and produce surround sound you need a good 5.1 monitoring system. The HS-series speakers and subwoofer are the perfect choice if you want competitive surround-monitoring performance without having to spend big-studio megabucks to get it.

Optimum Response In Any Room
Speaker response can vary greatly depending on the size, shape, and surface acoustics of the room in which they're used, as well as how they're placed within that environment. The HS7 gives you extra room-matching and speaker placement versatility with ROOM CONTROL, MID EQ, and HIGH TRIM response control switches that are specifically designed to compensate for common acoustic deficiencies and monitoring needs. The ROOM CONTROL switch, for example, can be used to compensate for the unnatural low-end exaggeration that usually occurs when speakers are placed close to walls or in corners. The MID EQ switch gives you subtle midrange boost and cut options in addition to flat response, while the HIGH TRIM switch offer the same type of response-tailoring capability for the high frequencies.

  • Overall the best studio monitor for the money.

    As reviewed by Thanarath Chanthavisay on 4/22/2014

    Before I buy the Yamaha HS7, I bought the HS8 and it is big in size and has lots of low and hi but missing the mid frequency. Now the Yamaha HS7 size is perfect for my setup and I already have a sub to match it. The HS7 has very good detail sound in the midrange and hi frequency, I would say the vocal sound stands out better than the HS8 and HS5. The built quality is exceptional. The front logo lights up looks good but it is a little bit too bright, if Yamaha could dim it down like 30% that would make it easy for the eyes. Overall I am very happy with it, it has the best sound for the money and it is sound very natural.

  • Simply Amazing

    As reviewed by Ryan Kajtor on 11/10/2013

    I purchased these monitors after buying a pair of monitors from a different manufacturer. All I can say about the Yamaha HS7 is you'd be missing out if you purchased something else in this price range. These are the caliber of monitors you can just close your eyes, listen, and be wowed. What I like about the monitors: 1. Clarity - Very nice high, mid, and low. Well balanced. The tweeter is very crisp and clear, but not stressful on the ear. The 6.5" woofer produces an accurate and precise sound. 2. Flat - Perfect for mixing tracks that translate well across different platforms 3. Design - Very nice design. The black and white looks very classy. The monitors have large heat sinks on the back. My old set of monitors did not have this and would get very warm. These monitors stay pretty cool. The monitors have a rear port. 4. Room Control - Very useful features to have when setting up your monitors in your mixing environment. 5. Price - Can't go wrong with these at $299.99 each. I actually paid less with Guitar Center's current instant rebate promotion. What I don't like about the monitors: 1. How they've made me realize my old mixes sound terrible. All in all, an excellent decision to go with Yamaha. Love the quality of these monitors and they are the perfect match to my Yamaha HS8 subwoofer.
