The Yamaha HS8 Active Studio Monitor (Single) is the flagship model of Yamaha’s HS series of active studio monitors, taking its cues from the ever-popular and much-demanded NS-10. The Yamaha HS8 Active Studio Monitor features bi-amped full range two-way speakers rated at 75W and 45W and has been developed by Yamaha to offer an exceptionally flat and accurate frequency response for use in music production and composition as well as the home project studio. The HS range of monitors has been designed in the same tradition of the legendary NS10M monitors.
Yamaha HS8 speakers feature a Low Resonance bass reflex enclosure which improves the rigidity of the overall speaker, and less cabinet resonance means that the signal remains clear and uncoloured. This is very important in getting an accurate mix which translates across all systems. Port noise has also been audibly reduced by up to 6dB, which also helps to deliver a clean and precise signal. The HS8 is equipped with XLR and TRS jack connectors as well as Room Control and Hi Trim response controls.
