Setup
English
In this section we’ll look at the general procedure for connecting and setting up a monitor speaker system.
This is just an example though, so feel free to set up your own system in the way that best serves your
personal listening needs.
 Recommended cables
Cables
 For connection to a balanced phone jack input.
You’ll need to acquire appropriate cables to connect
the HS series monitor speakers to your audio interface
or other source equipment.
HS8/HS7/HS5
or
• Short, high-quality cables
Use high-quality cables of the shortest practical
length. The longer the cable, the more chance there
is that noise will creep in to degrade your sound.
 For connection to an unbalanced phone jack input.
• Balanced cables
HS8/HS7/HS5
Balanced cables are more resistant to noise than
unbalanced cables. If you have to use unbalanced
cables because the source equipment only has
unbalanced outputs, be sure to use the shortest
possible unbalanced cables.
NOTE Refer to “Connection and Cable Types” on page 14 for more
connector details. The configurations of the balanced and
unbalanced phone jack connectors are different.
Connections
NOTE Plug the supplied AC power cord into the corresponding
socket on the speaker. Plug the power cord into the speaker
first, and then insert the AC plug end into an appropriate AC
wall outlet.
Connecting to an Audio Interface
When connecting an audio interface (Steinberg UR or
MR series, etc.) to HS series speakers, connect the
audio interface output connectors directly to the
speakers’ input connectors. Normally you’ll connect to
the LINE OUT 1 and 2 (1L and 2R outputs), although
that might depend on the specific audio interface and
DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) settings used.
HS8/HS7/HS5
Connecting to a Mixer
When connecting a mixer (Yamaha MGP or MG series,
etc.) to HS series speakers, connect the mixer’s
MONITOR OUT or C-R OUT (Control Room) connectors
directly to the speakers’ input connectors. This makes it
possible to control the monitor level independently from
the mixer’s main bus level.

such as a Yamaha MOTIF synthesizer to the HS series
speakers, connect the instrument’s L/MONO and R
outputs to the HS speaker inputs.
HS8/HS7/HS5
HS8/HS7/HS5
 Point 1
Position speakers at least 1.5 meters away from
walls or corners.
OUTPUT L/MONO
OUTPUT R
Ideally, the speakers should be located at least 1.5
meters away from walls or corners. In situations where it
is not possible to position the speakers a sufficient
distance from walls or corners, the ROOM CONTROL
switch can be used compensate for excessive bass. As
you move the speaker closer to walls or corners, a
higher compensation setting may be required to
achieve natural sounding response ([0] → [-2] → [-4]).
 Recommended cables
 For connection to an unbalanced phone jack input.
HS8/HS7/HS5
10
HS8/HS7/HS5/HS8S Owner’s Manual
Position the left and right speakers
symmetrically.
The left and right speakers should be positioned as
symmetrically as possible in relation to the room. In
other words, the left and right speakers should be the
same distance from the rear wall and the respective left
and right walls.
 Point 3
The optimum listening position is at the apex of
an equilateral triangle.
For the most accurate sound and balance, position
yourself at the apex of an equilateral triangle formed by
the left and right speakers and yourself, with the
speakers angled inward so that they’re facing you.
 Point 4
Position the tweeters at ear height.
High frequencies are quite directional, so for the most
accurate monitoring the speakers should be set up so
that the tweeters are at approximately the same height
as your ears when you’re seated at the listening
position.
NOTE If necessary, adjust the ROOM CONTROL and HIGH TRIM
switches for the most natural response (refer to page 7).
English
 Point 2
Adding a Subwoofer (HS8S)
Adding a subwoofer to your monitor system can
significantly improve its low-frequency fidelity, making it
possible to create better overall mixes.
The subwoofer is normally placed on the floor between
the left and right full-range speakers, but since the
subwoofer reproduces low frequencies below 200 Hz
that are relatively non-directional, subwoofer positioning
is not critical.
Four cables are required: two to connect the audio
interface or other source equipment to the HS8S
subwoofer, and two more to connect the subwoofer to
the left and right HS8/HS7/HS5 main speakers.
The connections are made as shown below.

Connection and Cable Types
To allow direct connection to equipment in a wide variety of working environments, the HS speakers are
equipped with one XLR and one phone connector that both support balanced as well as unbalanced
connections.
Balanced or Unbalanced
Balanced connections provide greater resistance to
noise that can be picked up from external sources,
effectively canceling induced noise while leaving the
desired audio signal intact. Since the chance that noise
will be picked up increases with the length of the cable,
balanced connections are preferred for long cable
runs. Unbalanced cables are commonly used to
connect electronic musical instruments and guitars,
etc., to amplification equipment. If your cable runs won’t
be any longer than around one or two meters, which
should suffice in most small rooms, then unbalanced
cables can probably be used without any problems. If
the source device has balanced outputs, the use of
balanced cables is recommended to ensure optimum
signal quality.
Phone Connectors
Phone type connectors can be used for both
unbalanced and balanced connections. Cables fitted
with TRS (Tip, Ring, Sleeve) phone plugs must be used
to make balanced connections to the HS series
speakers. The construction of TRS phone plugs is
basically the same as stereo phone plugs.
Tip: hot (+)
Ring: cold (-)
Sleeve: ground
Connect standard mono phone plug cables to the HS
speaker phone connectors for unbalanced
connections.
Cables
The following types of cable connectors can be used
with HS series speakers.
Tip: hot (+)
Sleeve: ground
XLR Connectors
XLR type connectors are widely used in professional
audio equipment and installations. The three-pin XLR
type connectors provided on the HS series speakers
are primarily intended for use with balanced
