About the Yamaha HS8 Monitors Package
The HS line from Yamaha is one of the best monitors on the market for home and project studio use (as well as professional reference), with their natural open sound that does not color the music. This makes them ideal for a variety of musical styles. These FEA monitor packages bring you the Yamaha HS8 monitors (perfect for medium to larger rooms, or music styles that demand more low frequency attention), with Auralex MoPads (to help isolate your monitors and reduce low-mid/low-end build up), and a pair of quality cables, at great savings that really make this a no-brainer. Need more low-mid to low-end balance? Add a Yamaha HS8S sub for even more savings!
Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor Details
When choosing reference monitors for mixing and music production, accuracy is the prime consideration. Speakers that sound "good" on first impression may not necessarily be accurate. What you really need is an honest reference for your mix, rather than monitors that have been tweaked or colored to deceptively sound impressive.
The new HS series reference monitors have been created by Yamaha's studio monitor engineering team to deliver exceptionally flat, accurate response that you can trust. Unlike "monitor" speakers with exaggerated bass and treble that make a good first impression but can't be relied on for accuracy, the HS series were designed to be true studio reference monitors in the tradition of the legendary Yamaha NS10M.
Whether you're mixing for stereo or 5.1 surround, mixes that sound good on Yamaha HS series reference monitors will translate accurately to the widest possible range of reproduction systems … which is engineer-speak that simply means they'll sound good on anything. And that is the ultimate goal of any reference monitor. We should also mention that the HS-series monitors not only sound great, they look great, too.
Auralex MoPAD Monitor Isolation Pads Details
Your loudspeakers are the most critical components you use to verify the quality of your work. No matter how good your mixer, mics, preamps, cables, and other pieces of gear that you've invested in, you're not truly hearing what your recordings sound like until you isolate your monitors from their environment. Buy a set today - you'll hear an AMAZING difference.
In the studio environment, everything that vibrates can add artifacts to your sound. If you allow your monitors to acoustically couple to a shelf, a rack, desk, or the meter bridge of your mixing board, it can degrade the accuracy of what you're hearing. Furthermore, once your monitors spread vibrations to whatever they're resting on, everything else that's in physical contact with your monitors will vibrate too.
This is where the Auralex MoPads come in. MoPads provide sonic isolation between your monitors and whatever your monitors are resting on, INSTANTLY improving the accuracy of your entire monitoring system.
Auralex MoPads come with wedge adjusters, allowing you to tilt your studio monitors (or any item to be decoupled/isolated) to listening angles of 4°, 8°, -4°, and -8°. Leaving the Auralex MoPad wedge in place allows the monitor to be set flat at 0 degrees.
MoPads have other unlimited uses, such as isolating delicate electronics from vibration. They are also useful under CD burners, computer speakers, laptops and turntables, providing it doesn't restrict air flow. Auralex MoPADs are affordable, easy to implement, and really effective at decoupling your monitors - or ANYTHING in your studio - from your room and all its contents.
Balanced Line Cable Details
In studio applications you will need a balanced cable, and these cables feature Neutrik connectors. This bundle includes two 10-foot cables, and you can choose between different connector configurations: 1/4" TRS to 1/4" TRS, 1/4" TRS to XLR Male, or XLR Male to XLR Female.
