OVERVIEW

2-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.

Comments about Yamaha HS7 Powered Studio Monitor:

I bought these to replace my KRK Rokit 5 G1s and to add to my Avantone Cubes and M-Audio BX8As. Of course, these are totally different than the KRKs and much better to be sure.
I am still learning how to use them but each time I do, I like them better than before.
The new Tweeter is outstanding and when boosted, it sounds similar (but better) to the Tweeter on the BX8A.
Speaking of, the EQ switches on the back provide for very noticeable changes, however, the HS7s would be much better "Audio Tools" if the EQ Switches were on the front. In fact, if there was a Bass EQ boost and the EQ switches were on the front, these would be incredible.

    Comments about Yamaha HS7 Powered Studio Monitor:

    Great monitors, they sound true to the ear, not overbearing bass, but there is some nice low ends for sure.

    Audio is super clear whether mixing rock, bluegrass, funk, or straight vocals (only stuff I have mixed on these yet).

    Look nice, and they are good speakers for listening to itunes or pandora also.

      Comments about Yamaha HS7 Powered Studio Monitor:

      I purchased two HS7 speakers last week, for using together with virtual piano softwares in my home studio, for recordings, mixing, and some other stuff. I'm truly amazed by the clarity of their sound, nearly "the perfect sound". Mostly I use them for rec and mix solo piano and other acoustical instruments, like jazz bass, drums, vocal, etc, but whatever I listen through them, sounds always just great. The quality of the built material is very high too, and it got a simple, elegant design. Very professional, great product by the Yamaha, highly recommended!

        Comments about Yamaha HS7 Powered Studio Monitor:

        I am a former professional musician turned hobbyist after many years. These are some of the best monitors I have heard. No wonder many pro studios have Yamahas. Very accurate. The bass is tight and not boomy. Mids and highs are crystal clear. Maybe a slight sibilance in the low upper range but I haven't done a final setup with EQ and the environment may have contributed. They are replacing an older set of similar monitors from another maker which were HIGHLY rated and right now I'm floored by the improvement. I didn't want an 8" version because they were too big for my setup and I have a great sub. Just the right size.
