Yamaha MSR100 Reviews4.6/5.0 based on 5 customer reviews
I own a pair of the Yamaha MSR400s, the MSR800 sub, and I just bought the MSR100 for monitoring at a local club. There is an outside patio area which is 25 feet away from the stage and there was no sound in that area, so I needed a solution that could be removed at the end of each night. The MSR100 was the right choice. It's lightweight , versatile for other purposes, and easy to set up. This is a very compact unit that could also be used at a coffee shop. It has four inputs and an EQ.

Perfect keyboard monitorsI bought these because I have used them for years in the pit of our musical theatre company. They are perfect as monitors and you can even use them as mains in a small to medium room. Very clean sound and has that legendary Yamaha reliability.

Big sound for a small, lightweight monitorI use this mostly as a personal monitor for local gigs.
It is so much lighter than any other monitor I have owned. I can easily grab it with one hand and carry something else in the other. it also fits very easily in my vehicle and as long as the PA has a monitor line-out, I don't have to worry about monitor amps, or speaker impedance matching - and I have local EQ control if I need it.
It gets loud enough that I have not had any problems hearing it. When testing it out I just connected an iPOD and was stunned at the low-frequency output this little guy was capable of - a lot better than I was expecting for an 8" speaker.
I've also used it as a PA system (for a small gathering) where we needed to just connect one mic so we could be heard above a crowd- worked perfectly.
