Technically, this is the relatively flat response of these speakers made me choose them in order to allow me to mix with more precision.


The frequency curve is relatively neutral the only big difference compared to NS10 from the graphics of response I could see is the lower part which undergoes a dramatic loss between 0Hz and 70Hz area. But hey it's 5 "so physically hard to beat without artifice.

The dynamics are simply beautiful as well as the stereo is a very high accuracy. The sound is extremely clear view even too but the settings available on the rear panel allow easy fix that.


I only use them for 24 hours and, even if it's not much, although I'm not quite used yet I must say that listening to some reference titles I immediately rediscovered them in another day!

The value for money I think is truly excellent. I hesitated between YAMAHA HS50M and MACKIE MR5mk2 for YAMAHA and finally choose the one reason for this is that I did not find any independent reference design in terms of the frequency response MACKIE.

What I like most about these speakers is the sound and the NS10 design inspired ;-)

As already mentioned the value for money is very good for what is a real tool for work / leisure relation to R5G2 KRK or M-Audio BX5a Deluxe that is probably more potato but not as neutral.
