Tannoy is also fairly common.

I'm starting to notice the Yamaha NS10M is in a bunch of these Mastering Studios.

Any experience? Apparently if you own a CD then 90% of your music was created using these monitors..

Bill - I was the sound guy in a large church for several years and attended several audio conferences during that time. The Yamaha NS10M was in use in every studio/conference/seminar I attended. The NS10M has a very loyal following in the studio (both love and hate) and will blow the hat off your head when asked. They are extremely revealing and excel when getting a good mix for low-end systems is a goal - which unfortunately as you noted, represents the vast majority of listeners.

After an extended session in Nashville a couple years ago, I drove straight home and ordered a pair of it's little brother, the HS50M and a HS10W sub for my office. For the size (great for a desk) and money, they can roll when it's time to rock!

If the 5 802's are being used just for the mixing of music and not the movie sound effects incuding LFE then I could see them not needing subwoofers.

Terry, good to know! I've got a couple of pairs on my eBay watch list. I've even found that a company sells modified Yamaha HS80Ms, with some of the signal limiters removed (they are powered, you knew that but for the rest)

I've considered flush mounting them in a book case in my computer room along with some good 90s gear and a decent subwoofer just for kicks.
regardless, I am fond of the acoustic suspension design.

Best,

Bill

Afterthought, if you are listening to Music on different speakers than the mastering engineer, are you not getting the true representation of that engineer? In other words when we mix and match all out stuff, we get a translation.. and we don't know how far from the truth we are. Most think, if it sounds good then, ignorance is bliss.
Thank you for the info. I guess in my case, I'm REALLY far off from what the mastering engineer was hearing.

Okay, maybe a little closer to that Yamaha.

The scale is off.. but it shows why the NS10M are so regarded. Not for frequency response, but for it's ability, in my assessment, to follow the electrical signal with low mechanical losses.

I wouldn't change what you have..
