    Yamaha MSP5

    I have had these monitors since 2014 and I have never had a problem with my monitors. Just using one can monitor, if turned half way up can get really LOUD! I use these for music production and they are perfect for home studio use.

    Much better when I think!!!

    It's a really neutral, flat and natural sound speaker. Much better for mixing when more expensive Genelec (only Hi-Fi, not a true control speaker - I have 8030a) and Adam A5 (useing this for Sony PS3). Do not believe in gimmick expensive brands and sayings of famous producers, they get money for advertising. I just believe my ears!

    Excellent Near Field Monitor for less than $1000!

    I compared an entire wall of monitors at the store and these were the only monitors less than $1000 that have the flat character and clarity to accurately mix on.

    These things remind me so much of NS-10s. Those aren't being made anymore, so either buy 'em used or get these instead!

    Awesome monitors

    And to think we were just using headphones and our laptop speakers before. These monitor speakers allow you to hear everything. Love them! Even with one speaker it's still phenomenal compared to my other speakers!

    Best in its Range

    This is a darn good nearfield monitor. I have a set of the Yamaha HS50Ms, and these are SO much better. They've got more low end, the top end isn't so harsh, and they really translate pretty well. They take a bit to learn, but they're not fatiguing. Great low end, great top end (I roll off the top with the 1.5dB switch) and for just a little bit more than the HS50Ms, get these. Go read on the Yamaha site--they say that these MSP monitors are more accurate than the HS series!

    Accurate mid/hi area

    I've used these for 3 years now and always perfect for tracking and mixing for acoustic to light-rock musics. I dare say it's the best in it's price range. But if you you're in Metal, electronica or another musics which the thumping low end is important, then you need a sub woofer to help these babies. Yamaha SW10 Studio might be the perfect choice, but it's production has been discontinued.
