The HS7 Monitor is designed as a true reference monitor with exceptionally flat response. If your mix sounds good here, it'll sound good everywhere.

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.

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 HS50M and HS80M give 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.

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.

  • 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified nearfield studio monitor

              The Yamaha HS7 Two-way 6.5" Active Monitor (Single) is a great and durable monitor! The accurate frequency response on these is so close to the real thing you will think you paid a lot more for these. They may seem pricey for just one speaker, but they are very much worth it!

                Comments about Yamaha HS7 Two-way 6.5" Active Monitor (Single):

                VERY accurate studio monitors. Great price range for exceptional quality. 6.5" woofer gives deep but still accurate bass. Extra EQ controls included. 95 total watts with 60 watts going to the woofer. Built in amplifier making them plug and play. Excellent for mixdown or playback. I have used these in my own recordings and productions. Also nice for playback for practice on my turntables.
                Boils down to this, the sound is accurate. What you expect is what happens. No surprises when listening to your project on other sound systems.

                  Just as good as the old NS-10s but these are active, ported design and cheap!

                  These Yamahas have great, clear sound throughout the sound spectrum. These things work just fine on your own, so I wouldn't worry much about a sub. But, if you want to run a sub with these, they do play nice, so not to worry. In this price range, Yamaha competes very well against other brands, so come in to Sam Ash and give them a listen!
