PRECAUTIONS
English
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock, shortcircuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/Power cord
Water warning
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the device. The required voltage is printed on
the name plate of the device.
• Use only the included power cord.
• Do not place the power cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators, and do not
excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects on it, or place it in a
position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll anything over it.
• Be sure to connect to an appropriate outlet with a protective grounding connection.
Improper grounding can result in electrical shock.
• Do not expose the device to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions, or place
containers on it containing liquids which might spill into any openings.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
If you notice any abnormality
• If the power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a sudden loss of sound
during use of the device, or if any unusual smells or smoke should appear to be caused by
it, immediately turn off the power switch, disconnect the electric plug from the outlet, and
have the device inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• If this device should be dropped or damaged, immediately turn off the power switch,
disconnect the electric plug from the outlet, and have the device inspected by qualified
Yamaha service personnel.
Do not open
• Do not open the device or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or modify them in any
way. The device contains no user-serviceable parts. If it should appear to be malfunctioning,
discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the device or other
property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/Power cord
Connections
• Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the device is not to be used for extended
periods of time, or during electrical storms.
• When removing the electric plug from the device or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and
not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.
• Before connecting the device to other devices, turn off the power for all devices. Before
turning the power on or off for all devices, set all volume levels to minimum.
Handling caution
• When turning on the AC power in your audio system, always turn on the device LAST, to
avoid speaker damage. When turning the power off, the device should be turned off FIRST
for the same reason.
• Do not insert your fingers or hands in any gaps or openings on the device (ports, etc.).
• Avoid inserting or dropping foreign objects (paper, plastic, metal, etc.) into any gaps or
openings on the device (ports, etc.) If this happens, turn off the power immediately and
unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the device inspected by qualified
Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not use the device for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level,
since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing
in the ears, consult a physician.
• Do not operate the device if the sound is distorting. Prolonged use in this condition could
cause overheating and result in fire.
• Do not rest your weight on the device or place heavy objects on it, and avoid use excessive
force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
• When removing the speaker from the box or handling it at any time, be careful not to touch
the tweeter dome with your fingers. Otherwise, the speaker can be damaged.
Location
• Before moving the device, remove all connected cables.
• When setting up the device, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is easily accessible.
If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect
the plug from the outlet.
• Do not use the device in a confined, poorly-ventilated location. Make sure that there is
adequate space between the device and surrounding walls or other devices: for MSP7
STUDIO and MSP5 STUDIO at least 15cm at the sides, 15cm behind and 15cm above, and
for SW10 STUDIO at least 50cm at the sides, 50cm behind and 50 above. Inadequate
ventilation can result in overheating, possibly causing damage to the device(s), or even fire.
• Do not expose the device to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or heat (such as in
direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to prevent the possibility of panel
disfiguration or damage to the internal components.
• Do not place the device in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.
XLR-type connectors are wired as follows (IEC60268 standard): pin 1: ground, pin 2: hot (+), and pin 3: cold (-).
Even though this speaker system is magnetically shielded, you may need to move the speaker further away from the video monitor, if a nearby video monitor exhibits any distortion or unnatural color
shift.
Interference From Cell Phones
Using a cell phone near the speaker system can induce noise. If this occurs, move the cell phone further away from the speaker system.
The rubber feet included in this package can be attached to the MSP5 STUDIO and MSP7 STUDIO to prevent slippage when it is to be used on a slippery surface.
Air blowing out of the bass reflex ports is normal, and often occurs when the speaker is handling program material with heavy bass content.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the device.
Always turn the power off when the device is not in use.
The performance of components with moving contacts, such as switches, volume controls, and connectors, deteriorates over time. Consult qualified Yamaha service personnel about replacing
defective components.

Setting Up for Superior

Unlike most other audio and production gear, the way speakers are set up in a room has a dramatic effect on the final sound. This short tutorial provides a basic guide to help you maximize
the performance of your Yamaha MSP-series monitor speakers.

Proximity to Walls and Corners
For the most accurate response your speakers should be
positioned away from walls and especially corners, which
can play havoc with a speaker’s frequency characteristics. A
minimum of about 1.5 meters (about 5 feet) away from
walls would be ideal, but in reality they’ll probably end up
being placed on a desktop and pushed up against a wall.
Just keep in mind that fact that the closer you get to
walls and corners the more exaggerated the speaker’s bass
response is likely to become, and some compensation —
whether you compensate mentally or use some equalization — will probably be required.

As we’ve just learned, the response of a speaker can

English
The “Sweet Spot”
For both stereo and surround mixing your position in
relation to the main front speakers — the "sweet spot" as
it’s often called — should be one apex of an equilateral triangle. In other words your distance from either speaker
should be the same as the distance between the two
speakers. The speakers should also be "toed in" to the corresponding 60° angle so that the drivers are aimed directly
at the listening position. The height of the speakers should
be such that the tweeters are roughly aligned with your
ears (this is because high frequencies are the most direc-

Fine-tuning for Stereo (MSP7 STUDIO or MSP5 STUDIO x 2)
● The speaker LEVEL controls should be set to the same level. A setting of about 12 o’clock corresponds to a nominal
input level.
● Since no subwoofer is being used in this setup, if your speakers have a LOW CUT switch, set it to "FLAT" (the MSP7
STUDIO has a LOW CUT switch).
● For accurate monitoring set the LOW TRIM switch to "0". If you want to reduce the low-frequency level a bit set the
switch to "-1.5".
● For accurate monitoring set the HIGH TRIM switch to "0". This switch can be set to "-1.5 dB" to attenuate the highs

initely not the case for serious monitoring. The response of
your ears changes so drastically according to level, especially in the soft to medium-loud region, that is essential to
maintain a consistent monitoring level otherwise you simply won’t get consistent mixing results. You’ll undoubtedly
need to turn up or down a bit at certain points during the
production process when listening for specific problems or
effects — in fact it is important to listen to your mix at different levels as a final checking process, bringing the levels
down very low to check if any elements of the mix disappear and make sure that the vocal continues to maintain its
balance in the mix at very low levels — but in general you
should stay within a fairly small range.
Just what is the best level to monitor at? Although there
is a "standard" monitoring level specification,* the answer
for most small studios is "whatever is most comfortable for
you." You need to monitor at a level that’s loud enough so
that you don’t miss any soft details, but not so loud that
your ears become fatigued (or your neighbors complain). If

sound.
