Since 1887, when it began producing reed organs, the Yamaha Corporation in Japan (then Nippon Gakki Co., Ltd.) has grown to become the world’s largest manufacturer of a full line of musical instruments, and a leading producer of audio/visual products, semiconductors and other computer related products, sporting goods, home appliances and furniture, specialty metals, machine tools, and industrial robots .
Yamaha owns numerous subsidiaries and affiliates in overseas markets in addition to a number of related companies in Japan.
Yamaha’s very basic corporate objective is reflected in everything that it does, which is to contribute to the enrichment of the quality of lives for people around the world.
With the new HS5 series studio monitors, comes with an array of features. The cabinets on the new HS series are made to increase the accuracy of the sound production along with eliminating all unwanted resonance. This means that when you are testing out a new soundtrack or making some new sounds in your studio, you are going to hear the most accurate, true to your ear sounds that you want. The enclosure on the Yamaha HS5 Studio Monitor is constructed from an extremely resilient and dense MDF with a softened/damped acoustic response that is made in particular to be suited perfectly with reference monitors. The HS monitors also come with newly developed transducers. The newly redesigned HS5 series monitors feature new transducers the can achieve smooth response over a wide bandwidth and guarantee the accuracy of signal production all throughout the audio spectrum. The tweeter with the new monitors has been upgraded from a ¾” model to a 1″ model. This delivers amazing high-resolution sound and provides an extended frequency range.
The HS5 Series powered monitors have been completely optimized for a variety of different music production environments. The HS5 speakers have an amplifier unit that matches the transducers perfectly in each model. The Yamaha HS5 Studio Monitor features a bi-amp design with a separate dedicated amp for the tweeter and woofer; this amplifier unit is made to ensure that your speaker will consistently deliver high-resolution sound with an exceptionally flat response across the sound spectrum. If you are looking for a powered studio monitor that is going to give you the best quality, most accurate sounds then the Yamaha HS5 Studio Monitor is a great pick for you.
The Yamaha HS7 Studio Monitor Speaker offers everything that the HS5 Studio Monitor has to offer, but also much more. The Yamaha HS7 Studio Monitor is newer which means that the components inside the monitor are going to be slightly more advanced than the last generation. The HS7 Studio Monitor features the same size tweeter as the HS5 Studio Monitor, but with a higher frequency range that goes up to 30 kHz. Along with the newer tweeter comes the Ultra-Responsive High-Power woofers that brings very low distortion, along with well-defined bottom end at any output level. The enclosure design will also feature the low resonance effect as the previous generation, which utilizes:
Three-way mitered-joint technique to ensure the best resonance control
Cutting edge noise reduction
Controlling Vortex at the Speaker Port
XLR and TRS Connectors
The drivers that are used in the HS7 Studio Monitor Speaker deliver the most superb audio performance that can actually be considerably boosted by using a sophisticated mounting system. One great feature of the HS& studio monitor is that it contains extra large magnets. You might not realize how important these magnets are but they prove significantly for a few reasons. In combination with the HS7’s advanced magnetic circuit design, these large, profound magnets bring a much more robust, orderly, and firmly controlled flux field that profits exceedingly smooth response along with dynamic efficiency over a much wider frequency range. Even though the HS5 studio monitors will make a great purchase, you might want to consider the added benefits of buying the newer, more advanced HS7 studio monitors to get more features out of your purchase.
