"Very flat"

Yamaha’s MSP5’s where a pair of monitors that I was using for a while as reference monitors. They are active monitors with a 5 inch woofer and 1 inch tweeter. These monitors are very flat, compared to a lot of other monitors that I have used in the past these are better than a lot of them and they are even cheaper. I first heard these at Guitar Center when I went to get a “cheap” pair of monitors to reference with. I ended up leaving with these just because of the flat sound. That made it very easy to mix with these monitors but because I had the KRK monitors these ended up being my reference monitors and they helped me out a lot with mixing my bass nice and clean while keeping it tight.


These monitors have low cut, low trim, power, phase, and high trim controls right on the monitors. They work at 60 watts and are not any taller than a foot. These monitors are not big at all and fit right on my work desk with my laptop. They have magnetic shielding so there were no worries with them affecting my computer/laptop screen.


The LED meters on these monitors will let you know if you are clipping by displaying a “red” color instead of the standard “green” color. The frequency response is 50 Hz to 40 kHz with a maximum output level of 101dB.
These monitors should have been my first choice for near field monitors; and if I could do it all over again these would have been purchased long before I got my hands on them. These are some of the best you can get for less than 500 dollars. I have used about 10 different set of monitors in this price range but not have them are as flat and clean as the MSP5’s are!
