Excerpt: All Yamaha equipment tends to be reassuringly solid, so when the MSP7s were hoisted from their box, it came as no surprise to find them built and finished as well as, if not better than many of the pricier examples of this ilk around. Bespoke heat-sinks, for instance, are not the active-speaker norm. Specification is equally purposeful.
Pros: Feel not so much built as smelted, tremendously detailed, revealing sound
Cons: Latent treble troubles, ham-fisted tempo management
