Yamaha HS Series Powered Studio Monitors


collapse expand iconDescription

The HS5 powered studio monitor from Yamaha is designed to provide an honest and balanced representation of your audio. With bi-amplification that utilizes separate amps for the high and low frequencies, each driver can achieve optimal performance without interference for a clear, detailed sound. The 5" woofer and 1" dome tweeter are mated to the amplifier and mounted in a system that minimizes resonance and vibration. Large magnets and an advanced magnetic circuit enable a wide, dynamic frequency range.

Hear Every Nuance in Your Mix

The HS5 is engineered for accuracy, not enhancement, giving you a neutral platform to craft and evaluate your mixes. The matched components and tuned crossovers provide a smooth, balanced frequency response so you can make mix decisions with confidence, knowing how your audio will translate on other systems.

Tailor the Sound to Your Space

The on-board controls for high trim, mid EQ and room control allow you to compensate for the acoustics of your room and placement. Cut or boost the high and mid frequencies and reduce low-end buildup from nearby walls. Whether in a corner, close to walls or in a more open area, you can optimize the HS5's performance for your unique setup.

A Trusted Industry Standard

Yamaha's studio monitors have been relied upon by audio professionals for decades thanks to their accuracy, performance and durability. The iconic white woofer and refined design of the HS series have made them a genuine industry standard for good reason. With a proven track record of success, the HS5 provides a solid sonic foundation for your studio.

Portable Powered Monitoring

The HS5 gives you everything you need for high-quality monitoring in a self-contained, compact design. Simply connect your audio source and power cable and you're ready to start mixing and producing with professional-level tools.
