The Yamaha HS5I Active Studio Monitors feature the iconic white woofer and signature sound that have become the preferred choice for countless professional audio engineers around the world. The HS5I utilises a bi-amplified design with a 5'' low-frequency driver and 1'' high-frequency dome to deliver an extended frequency range, along with astonishingly smooth responses and seamless, natural sonic transitions. The new HS5I monitor is also compatible with three optional mounting brackets, offering the flexibility needed to meet the demands of professional audio environments.

The HS5I studio monitors feature newly developed transducers that achieve incredibly smooth responses over a wide frequency range. The highly efficient 1'' dome tweeter further extends the usable frequency range while the 5'' cone utilises high-quality magnets to deliver well-defined low frequencies at any output level, with exceptionally low distortion.
The HSI series of monitors are perfectly suited for many situations. Not just the studio environment. The flexible mounting system fitted to the back of monitor means it can be attached to a wall and faced in any direction. This is ideal if you’re running a restaurant or bar or just need an easy to install audio solution for any context. The pliable bracket system along with the high-end Room Control means you can always get the best sound field regardless of the environment.
The bass-reflex enclosure is constructed from a very dense and resilient MDF with a damped acoustic response that's perfectly suited for reference monitors. Drawing from over 100 years of piano design experience, Yamaha's HSI series engineers also utilised a traditional three-way mitered-joint technique. Common to architectural design, this construction method firmly anchors the corners of the enclosure and ensures superior durability while also helping to eliminate unwanted resonance that can influence overall sound.
All HSI series full-range monitors feature two response controls with detailed settings, allowing you to adapt the monitor's performance depending on the surface acoustics of your own studio or production room. Room Control is ideal for attenuating the unnatural, exaggerated low-end that can often occur when speakers are placed next to walls, while High Trim provides flexible control of high-frequency responses. With XLR and TRS input connections, the HSI studio monitors can accommodate a wide range of both balanced and unbalanced sources such as mixers, keyboards, audio interfaces and more.
