Yamaha HS5 Active Studio Monitor, White

Overview by GAK

The second-generation of the Yamaha HS series combines the pristine, high-resolution sound that the monitors are renowned for with an innovative resonance-busting enclosure and upgraded transducers for a smoother response.

Compact Monitoring

The Yamaha HS5 active studio monitor features the most compact form factor and lightest weight out of all the models in the HS range, making it ideal for bedroom producers, small studio spaces and engineer’s on-the-go that need an easy to transport monitoring solution. The HS5 also comes in at the most affordable price point if you’re looking to buy a professional-quality studio monitor on a budget.

Suited To Small Spaces

Compared to the larger HS7 and HS8, the Yamaha HS5 low-frequency response doesn’t extend quite as far due to its more portable size. This is a huge advantage if your control room or home studio isn’t acoustically treated, as unruly bass frequencies can be tricky to manage and can affect your decision-making when mixing the lows.

New Extension

Like the HS7 and HS8, the HS5 can be hooked up to the Yamaha HS8S subwoofer if you need a major low-end extension - perfect for electronic music producers and mixers! Whilst any compatible sub can be hooked up to the HS5, the HS8S has been specially voiced to compliment HS series monitors. If you want to be able to hear lower frequencies without the need for a subwoofer, the larger onboard woofers on the Yamaha HS7 and HS8 can provide that extra depth.

Feature Presentation

Yamaha’s HS5 studio monitor is identical to its bigger siblings features and construction-wise, including the handy Room Control filters, multiple connectivity options and newly-designed enclosure which busts unwanted vibrations that can colour your sound.

The HS5 also comes in a striking White and as a Matched Pair for optimal sonic performance.

Boasting truly exceptional audio performance at an affordable price, the Yamaha HS nearfield monitor series remains immensely popular amongst producers, engineers and artists alike.

  • Customer


    Bought for mixing at home, though I regularly work in many studios around the country, very happy with the sound and though for a bigger space you may want to look at HS8s, these are more than enough for home mixing or for small studios.

  • George Appleton


    Excellent Service delivered Speakers next working day as stated on website. Customer Service very good. I would recommend Gak.

  • Mike Farley


    My KRK Rokit 5 G2s had become crackly.and noisy,so after seeking expert advice,regarding the cost of repair,it became obvious,that potentially,made that option non-viable..The Yamahas have received a lot of favourable comments etc.so.give them a try..An incidental,no extended warranty was offered,whether this is a retailer,or manufacturer decision is unknown..
