"Great representation"

  • Excerpt: They say what's important about monitors is that you learn how they translate onto other systems. I can say that these translate very well onto other systems. What I'm saying is that what I hear, or don't hear, on these monitors is just about the same as in my cars or home stereo systems. I don't have to worry about any stray sound surprising me when I'm playing a track elsewhere. So the monitor "learning curve" I believe is not very steep with these.

Great monitors for their price point

  • Excerpt: If you're in the market for something to get your studio started or you're not doing super hi-fi stuff, you really can't get a better entry into the world of studio monitors. Far more bang for the buck than competing 5" monitors.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use

Better Than Expected!!!

  • Excerpt: I thought these were a little pricey for a set of 5" reference monitors but they are actually much better than I thought. You can hear every single little detail, and they're loud as hell for their small size. Look, I'm not gonna drone on with technical specs or tell you how these speakers will one day cure cancer. Just buy them and you'll see what I mean. They're worth every penny.
  • Pros: Crystal Clear Sound, Quality Construction

Yamaha HS5 actieve studiomonitor (per stuk)

Jeff Straub, bax-shop.nl
26 May 2013
  • Summary: Prijs/kwaliteit verhouding van deze kleine krachtpatser is zeer goed. Een fijne neutrale weergave van het geluid waarin elk detail te horen is. Ik heb recent een setje gekocht nadat ik al 2 HS50M monitoren bij mijn computer had staan. In verhouding tot de HS50M heeft de HS5 een sterk verbeterde weergave van de wat lagere frequenties en dat maakt deze speaker in verhouding tot zijn voorganger veel meer een standalone performer.

Yamaha HS5 actieve studiomonitor (per stuk)

Ruben Swag, bax-shop.nl

  • Summary: Eerst bestelde ik de KRK rokit 5 studiomonitoren, maar het viel me op dat de bass nogal "overdreven" aanwezig was, met name voor acoustische muziek niet het meest betrouwbare geluid. Dus ging ik opzoek naar een alternatief, na veel goede berichten over de voorganger van deze boxen hs50m, voor deze set gegaan. Ik moet zeggen dat ik erg onder de indruk ben over de kwaliteit van deze boxen. De geluidsweergave is naar mijn gevoel erg betrouwbaar.
