Yamaha MSP5 : Exceptional

I've had the Yamaha HS50M, good speakers, but these one are CLEARLY better from any point of view: Impeccable finish, crystal-clear sound. They are small but weighty! They are perfect for a home studio, the best ones I've ever had. Right from the installation, I adopted them when I had some trouble with the HS50M.

SOUND

Sound is clear as crystal, it's a real treat. They distinguish themselves from the HS50M, which are pretty aggressive. These are very pleasant, I have finally found a set of speakers that satisfies me from all points of view. I ran a quick test this evening with the TotalMix of my RME UCX and it's fabulous, you can clearly hear the slightest change. I finally have the right speakers to mix, they have nothing to do with what I had up to now. Kudos for Yamaha for these speakers that transcend eras and trends.

OVERALL OPINION

I compared them to the 50M and they are obviously better, but the 50M are good speakers. On the other hand, they completely OUTCLASS the Prodipe P6, which are inaudible and much less precise in comparison. I did a test with an MSP5 on the left and a Prodipe P6 on the right and there's simply no comparison ;) They are much smaller, but they have a superb sound and finish. It's a different ballgame altogether. Prodigious small speakers, I can hear things I couldn't hear before.
