When Accurate Monitoring matters!


The Yamaha HS8 is an active nearfield reference monitor designed for professional and home recording studios. Carrying on the legacy forged by the iconic Yamaha NS-10M in the 1970s, the HS8’s accuracy and flat frequency response makes it ideal for precision mixing and mastering applications. With bi-amplified drivers, the HS8 easily produces enough volume for nearfield listening, while the rear room control and high frequency trim switches can be used to tailor the speaker to suit any size room.

Also on the rear are both an XLR and ¼” TRS jack input as well as an output level control. The HS8’s enclosure is designed to minimise unwanted frequencies and the drivers scientifically mounted to avoid colouration. Offering outstanding value for money and extremely accurate sound reproduction, it’s easy to hear why the HS8 is one of the most popular monitor speakers ever made.

When looking for nearfield studio monitors for your room, whether Yamaha HS5, HS7 or a pair of HS8's, you may want to consider some Acoustic Treatment in your room if you're serious about getting the best from your monitors.
