Yamaha HS8S - Powered subwoofer, active for producers, DJs and performers, in black
About this deal
My decision in part was based on having owned, and enjoyed, a pair of NS-10s a long time ago. This classic passive speaker requires external amplification and is either loved or hated in the industry with very few listeners falling somewhere in between. The HS8 brings that heritage, and the same sound signature, to a smaller active monitor. The HS Series features newly developed transducers that achieve astonishingly smooth response over a wide range of bandwidth. These transducers utilize an advanced magnetic field design that regulates the flow of magnetic response to provide seamless, natural sonic transitions. Each component's materials and design were carefully re-examined, then optimized, to drastically improve the accuracy of signal reproduction throughout the audio spectrum. As you start searching and shopping for the right studio-grade sub to add to your setup, you’ll doubtless come across theYamahaHS8Ssubwoofer. It’s widely reviewed, widely loved, and overall honestly an excellent choice for many. Still, it’s not perfect for everyone, and there are plenty of questions to answer about this highly praised subwoofer.
All new & used goods supplied by Music Matter are warranted free from defects for 12 months from the date of supply (unless otherwise stated). Beginning with the legendary NS-10M, and continuing with the MSP and previous HS Series, this new lineup shares a design philosophy that emphasizes sonic purity without any coloring or alternation of the original sound. While many manufacturers seek to enhance the sound of their monitors to make them sound impressive, Yamaha studio monitors are designed to achieve the best possible mix by ensuring that the sound from your speakers is true to the original. HS Series nearfield reference monitors are the embodiment of this philosophy, delivering a concise sound image, high resolution, and flat response. Highly efficient TransducersYamaha engineers have designed and produced new transducers for this latest range that deliver exceptionally clear, natural and detailed sound. The new transducers deploy Yamaha's advanced magnetic field design to more efficiently regulate the flow of magnetic response, contributing significantly to the purity of the sound. The Phase switch on your sub should probably be set to NORM (normal). However, if you’re getting a strange result, try switching it to REV (reverse), which reverses the phase. The HS8 monitors can reach as low as 38Hz, lower than the smaller speakers can go. Still, you won’t get as deep or as true or as balanced a bass response out of a pair of these speakers as you will when you add Yamaha’sHS8Ssubwoofer to the mix.
If you buy a pair of Yamaha HS series monitor speakers or a single HS8S subwoofer between February 1 and March 31, 2023, you can claim a free pair of TW-E3B earbuds. With newly designed, ultra-responsive woofers that utilize large, carefully selected magnets, HS Series monitors produce low distortion sound with a well-defined bottom end at any output level. All of the components in these high-power woofers, including the woofer ring and the basket further contribute to the HS Series' stunning bass while providing clear, accurate mids. High Performance Amp Unit Let's say I set the Low Cut (High Pass) filter max to 120Hz, that's mean the subwoofer will process the frequency <=120Hz, above that is processed by the main speakers. Then what will happen if I set the High Cut (Low Pass) to 80Hz? Where is the 81-120Hz gone?Speaker response can vary greatly depending on the size, shape, and surface acoustics of the room in which they're used, as well as how they're placed within that environment. The HS-Series gives you extra room-matching and speaker placement versatility with ROOM CONTROL, MID EQ, and HIGH TRIM response control switches that are specifically designed to compensate for common acoustic deficiencies and monitoring needs. The ROOM CONTROL switch, for example, can be used to compensate for the unnatural low-end exaggeration that usually occurs when speakers are placed close to walls or in corners. The MID EQ switch gives you subtle midrange boost and cut options in addition to flat response, while the HIGH TRIM switch offer the same type of response-tailoring capability for the high frequencies. Specification In your current setup, you’re almost certainly sending a signal from your audio interface’s monitor OUT to your monitors’ INs. (If not, you’re doing something more advanced and can probably reconstruct this advice to suit your setup.)
