Yamaha MSP5
I've had the Yamaha HS50M, good speakers, but these one are CLEARLY better from any point of view: Impeccable finish, crystal-clear sound. They are small but weighty! They are perfect for a home studio, the best ones I've ever had. Right from the installation, I adopted them when I had some trouble with the HS50M.


Sound is clear as crystal, it's a real treat. They distinguish themselves from the HS50M, which are pretty aggressive. These are very pleasant, I have finally found a set of speakers that satisfies me from all points of view. I ran a quick test this evening with the TotalMix of my RME UCX and it's fabulous, you can clearly hear the slightest change. I finally have the right speakers to mix, they have nothing to do with what I had up to now. Kudos for Yamaha for these speakers that transcend eras and trends.


I compared them to the 50M and they are obviously better, but the 50M are good speakers. On the other hand, they completely OUTCLASS the Prodipe P6, which are inaudible and much less precise in comparison. I did a test with an MSP5 on the left and a Prodipe P6 on the right and there's simply no comparison ;) They are much smaller, but they have a superb sound and finish. It's a different ballgame altogether. Prodigious small speakers, I can hear things I couldn't hear before.

Blacky's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Robust and faithful"

Yamaha MSP5
I say now, I'm not a sound engineer ;) ... but advised amateur musician

These speakers are very robust, due to the structural metal grates covering HP, but also by anti "pop" protection at power on and off. (Really a big plus)

I had plugged into a mini mixer, a Mackie 402-VLZ3 which made very easy to use.

Of severe acute settings / are disposed at the rear to make small adjustments.


Difficult to note neutrality because I'm not an expert, but in any case the return is very detailed in acute as in the grave


I had low end Behringer before, there is a world between ...

I find them a bit expensive, but it's really serious building level, it is a tank!

The only thing that can be a bit annoying is the on / off switch on the back, but it is the case on many speakers.

I highly recommend it.

Hervin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Recommend without hesitation"

Yamaha MSP5
The price / quality ratio remains excellent.
A short proximity monitoring they allowed me to make mixes for many years. This loyalty has helped me in the sound made listening and the end result that I wanted the most neutral.
I've also used in troubleshooting small sound.


Curve sufficiently neutral response, perhaps slightly lower in the medium, but not enough to disturb the mix. Good clarity across the spectrum, good dynamics.


Purchased there at least 8 years, I think.
I'm making tracks with 4 or 5 other models.
What I like: To mix it enables high fidelity and neutrality.
A quality / good price.
I would do this NIOHC without hesitation.

I would do the same choice.

Sigir's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Versatile"

Yamaha MSP5
Small, amplified, with entry into TRS or XLR, volume knob on the front, the grille HP, heavy duty construction therefore easily transportable.

These features allow me to use it as a studio monitor, of course, but also as a return of close on stage, seeing as the main sound system for small spaces (micro streaming music and vocals), as sound repetition (it fits in a backpack)


The sound is very decent, a bit aggressive. Associated with Dynaudio BM6A it's been a couple interesting: if it sounds on my headphones and 2, it sounds almost everywhere.


I have since 1999. Good quality / price ratio. I would do this choice for the use I have described, I have not seen equivalent.

Yamaha MSP5
After testing it seemed that c'taient monitors the most neutral in this price range


Maybe a lack trslger at the bass, but is consistent with a reproduction in real-life 'everyone does not have a subwoofer home'


5 years
again without a hsiter

I heard the boards from a dealer demo, enjoying a quiet moment in this shop.
I connected to my map ais RME 9632 with major XLR.


I trust my ears, I hear out of these monitors, I hear on my Advance Acoustic Micromega of my chain, so it suits me.


5 happy years of use.
Yes, but nothing conclusive, there is always better, but I'm happy with.

- What characteristics have motivated your choice?

The event on the front, filters, design and very strong protections ideal for travel.

- For what purpose?

Home studio, listening to music in everyday life.

- What amp / What configuration? ...

Uh ... one left and one on the right!


- The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?

In my opinion yes as well without any clear exaggerations

- The stereo image is good?

yes, it's effective.

- The sound is clear and precise on the spectrum?

This is where I prefer the sound is very accurate especially in the treble, bass a bit rough but I think it's just my play

- The dynamics are respected? ...

She had fishing the small black box!


- How long have you use it?

One year

- What is so special that you like most and least?

speaker thought to the proximity
A perfect design
A simple design but very successful
sounds a clear, precise and balanced

The small size of the speaker does not return the best lower
They are super heavy almost 10kg of pregnant, even as it is often a good sign!

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

Yes the store, I had a budget of 300euros, but in this price range there is nothing to correct, so I made an effort and it is the pair of speakers that had the quality of its nearest type of high-end Dynaudio

- How would you rate the quality / price?

Very good, and frankly I think it is mostly cheaper speakers that q / p mediocre.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Bah nan collectionners I will not, then I intend to keep long lasting fog fluid, for against the supplement with a good sub that would be tip top

These speakers use with a Korg D1600 multitrack, seem excellent for the work of mixes because they are a REALLY monitoring. Your exact mix is ​​exellent, as well qu'agrables, they are not flattering. They are REALLY speaker of "Working" (No bad surprises when changing to much ... quite the opposite!). I use them with hight "0" and low on "one". Super.


Good image stro prcise, good dynamic, clear sound prcis and "objective."


For a week. I tried all sorts of front speakers, without ever finding "shoes" my foot. L it seems tailor-made.
