Excellent - Reviews Yamaha HS8

Power is necessarily in the appointment. Frequencies that no flatter pieces except better mixed is obtained, and subsequently falls directly on the imperfections. It should be noted that the addition of a subwoofer is optional, because of the ability to reproduce low frequencies of these speakers. However, in view of mastering 5.1, I highly recommend it.

I use it mainly with a m-audio firewire 1814 and small cables XLR / Jack for more quality. I consists mainly of electro, rock, pop, jazz mainstream, even though I love to enjoy the potential speakers to experience the rather-in Logic Pro X connected to a master keyboard.

SOUNDS

The stereo image is excellent, after proper positioning of the speakers (ear height for tweeters, foam gym mats as insulation placed below), the pieces of my iTunes library, Apple Lossless format comes out with a really transparent striking. The sound is clear, precise and songs are being rediscovered.

The frequency curve is neutral (normal for this type of material), but I highly recommend these speakers HS 8 rather than 5 or HS HS 7, which are only reduced their big sister models. Unless they are second hand. I wanted to initially acquire Focal CMS 40, and SIZE / QUALITY / PRICE report, I preferred them.

For mastering, it is the ideal equipment item.

OVERALL OPINION

The quality and most competitive price in this material report. Indeed, the reputation of Yamaha HS is more to do, and this reissue merely confirms the reputation speaker who heard the titles of the greatest artists of the world. Certainly, there is better (Focal to name a few), but at this level it is the intermediary who would more than any amateur or semi-profrssionel fan of his.

I warn all readers, once purchased, you will find stupid you separate, and only admirers of another brand opt for different speakers. They must be supplemented with GOOD equipment and wiring quality in a compatible environment for the practice. I am also very critical of the M-Audio speakers that do not make weight in a comparative test.

For those who visit, will try.
For those who ask for a future purchase, run buy.

PS: I do not work for Yamaha Corp..
