Kygo posts a photo of his newly purchased Yamaha HS7 Powered Studio Monitors (photo posted November 2014). He says, "Just bought my first pair of studio monitors! Guess it was about time" The monitors are shown still in their original boxes. [Follow up Instagram posts](http://instagram.com/p/u5rQBltbDt/?modal=true) show the monitors set up and in use in Kygo's gear setup.more
In this photo of Ruban in his home studio, a pair of Yamaha HS7 monitors can be seen. he has backed this up in an interview with TapeOp: http://tapeop.com/interviews/109/unknown-mortal-orchestra/ "I had these [points at Yamaha HS7 monitors]. I still have no desire to upgrade from them."more
In this Instagram picture, a pair of Yamaha HS7 Powered Studio Monitors can be seen inside Lost Frequencies studio. Given the lack of "precise" detail in the photo, it can be assumed that these monitors are from the HS7 models, however according to the size of Felix's studio the Yamaha's HS8 could still be a valid option.more
A pair of Yamaha HS7 (actually just one) can be seen at 1:20 in this Facebook video, uploaded by the artist himself. Given the lack of more detail, it can be assumed that the HS7 are used here, but nevertheless, these could also be the larger variant, the Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitors.more
The Yamaha HS7 is a 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified nearfield studio monitor with 6.5" cone woofer and 1" dome tweeter. The Yamaha HS-Series have the inherited universal mix-translation legacy and distinctive white cones of the industry-respected NS-10's, designed to deliver your mixes with transparent honesty. Room control and frequency response switches allow custom tailoring of the monitor's response to give you accurate performance in any environment.
High-performance Speakers and Mounting System
The elegant white-cone speakers used in the HS-series monitors deliver superlative audio performance that is further enhanced by a carefully engineered mounting system. A system of screws and a specially designed mounting ring eliminates spurious vibration and resonance, allowing the speaker to deliver its full sonic potential. Another feature that boosts woofer performance is a magnet selected to produce accurate, solid low-end response. The tweeter frames employ an advanced smooth-contour design that minimizes losses so that high-frequency details come through with remarkable accuracy. The extra thickness of the tweeter frame also minimizes resonance that can interfere with high-end clarity. The overall result is extraordinarily smooth, accurate response throughout the audio spectrum.
The Benefits of Built-in Power and Bi-amplification
Powered, bi-amplified monitor speakers simply make the most electrical and sonic sense, and that's why they have become the first choice of sound professionals the world over for near- and mid-field monitoring applications. In addition to the obvious advantage that you don't need separate power amplifiers, the fact that power and speakers are integrated in one unit means that the amplifiers can be perfectly matched to the characteristics of the speaker units used so you get consistently superior performance with any source in just about any listening environment. Bi-amplification means that separate power amplifiers are used to drive the low-mid and high-frequency speaker units, and this eliminates interaction between the units as well as the response and phase anomalies introduced by passive crossover networks. Both speaker units can function at optimum performance levels for correspondingly high overall sonic quality.
Large Magnets in an Advanced Magnetic Circuit Design
One feature of the HS-series monitors that you'll hear but are not likely to see is the extra large magnets. In combination with an advanced magnetic circuit design these magnets provide a powerful, uniform, tightly controlled flux field that results in exceptionally smooth response and dynamic capability over a wider frequency range.
Portable, Versatile Monitoring for Your Audio Workstation
All you really need for top-class stereo production capability is a good audio workstation and a pair of HS-series monitors. A system like this is not only portable and extremely easy to set up anywhere you need it, it can deliver outstanding monitoring performance that will let you get your mixes just right. The response-control features of these monitors let you tweak them for the best response no matter where you set them up.
Serious Surround Production
Although stereo is still the most common format for basic music listening, 5.1 surround has become the audio format of choice for today's advanced visual media, and is beginning to be recognized as a superior vehicle for pure musical enjoyment as well. But to properly mix and produce surround sound you need a good 5.1 monitoring system. The HS-series speakers and subwoofer are the perfect choice if you want competitive surround-monitoring performance without having to spend big-studio megabucks to get it.
Optimum Response In Any Room
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 HS7 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.
Great sound. Cannot be happier in my choice. I was going to go with KRK, not that they are a bad choice necessarily, but after some deliberation I'm glad I went with the yammies. My production quality has improved tenfold since owning these.
Less nice than you might be used to. Very accurate full range mids. Loud as you'll ever really need. Lacking a tiny bit of sub frequencies, but plenty of lows. You'll start hearing things you've never heard before. Brings out microphone characteristics.
Utilizzo queste stupende reference monitor esclusivamente in fase di composizione nel mio home studio. Non sono un ingegnere del suono, semplicemente un produttore. La post-produzione delle mie tracce la affido ad un tecnico di fiducia in studio professionale, che mixa e masterizza 100% in analogico tutte le mie tracce (stem mixing + mastering).
