The explosive popularity of the Yamaha NS-10M speaker system for near- field monitoring in professional sound studios throughout the world has resulted in the development of the NS-10M STUDIO model. The NS-10M SUTDIO maintains the quality and performance of the original NS10M, but has been refined and redesinged specifically for professional applications. To begin with, you can throw away the tissue paper. The high-end output of the NS-10M STUDIO has been modified - on the basis of extensive testing and feedback from the field - for optimum balance in the studio control room.

The NS-10M STUDIO retains the unique sheet-formed white-cone 18cm woofer of the original NS-10M, but employs a redesinged 3.5cm dome tweeter to achieve high-end response that is more suitable for studio use. Optimum woofer/tweeter matching and careful crossover design ensure smooth, natural transition between frequency ranges with minimum phase variation. Frequency response is remarkably flat from 60 Hz right up to 20 kHz, and superior transient response delivers crisp, transparent sound. The exceptionally tight, clean reproduction and precise overall response of this system is a must for accurate sound evaluation and image positioning.

While the original NS-10M was primarily a vertical design, the NS10M STUDIO has been remodeled to facilitate on-console horizontal placement. Overall construction is more rugged to withstand the rigors of nonstop professional use.

SPECS Frequency Range: 60 Hz to 20 kHz Power Capacity: 60 watts(PROGRAM), 120 watts(MAX) Nominal Impedance: 8 ohms Sensitivity: 90 dB SPL(1W, 1m, on axis) Crossover Frequency: 2 kHz(12dB/oct) Enclosure: Real wood, black finish Dimensions(WxHxD): 382 x 215 x 198 mm (15" x 8-1/2" x 7-7/8") Weight: 6 kg (13 lbs. 3 oz.)

Good Points
1. Whatever you mix on these monitors, if you can get it to sound great here, you can be assured it will sound great almost everywhere else. 2. It is pretty much a standard in recording studios. 3. They look very nice. Black lacquered finish will look great in almost any studio. 4. They're affordable. The audio snobs won't like this! 5. Connectors on the rear are idiot-proof. Easy to set up. Easy to use.
Bad Points
1. People like to poke fun of its cardboard woofer (yes, it's made of cardboard), but this woofer has saved many dance music producers over the years. 2. The sound is irritating over the long haul like many monitors. Do not use them for everyday listening. 3. Limited frequency response, especially on the low-end. Avid fans might respond by saying that it only lets you hear frequencies that matter. 4. Some people hate Yamaha because they build everything under the kitchen sink, but don't hold that against these speakers. They're perfect for what they do.
