Price per UNIT
High quality, powered monitors have traditionally demanded premium prices.
The new MSP5 bi-amplified monitor speakers from Yamaha deliver extraordinary
sound quality, at an equally attractive price! The MSP5 provides the perfect
choice for a wide range of applications, from home recording to post production.
Ultra-Compact, Quick and Easy Hookup
Ultra-compact enclosures allow easy placement. Small face print makes them very
accurate for “point source” listening. Hookup is quick and easy with both XLR and
1/4 in. phone jacks available. 67 combined watts of audio power in a bi-amplified
monitor this size, let alone near this price, was previously unheard of — until now.
Upgrading to studio level monitoring has never been easier.
Custom Designed 5 in. Woofer and 1 in. Titanium Tweeter
Titanium offers excellent response, separation and durability. The MSP5’s dome tweeter,
surrounded by a waveguide horn offers a broad coverage area of 120 degrees.
With 2 separate amplifiers powering the woofer and tweeter, incredibly lower distortion
is realized. A total of 67 watts, 40 to the woofer and 27 to the tweeter, generates a much
larger sound field than would normally be expected from a system of this size.
Great for Mastering
Flat frequency response out to 40kHz makes the MSP5 great for mastering, where high
sample and bit rates are the norm.
The smooth circular horn surrounding the tweeter delivers uniform dispersion without
distortion or coloration.
Magnetic Shielding, Compact Enclosures
Complete magnetic shielding and compact size permits easy placement near all types
of audio, video and computer equipment.
Versatile Equalization Control
The MSP5’s 4 position EQ switch for low frequency and 3-position switch for high frequency
match the system’s response to the acoustic environment.
