About Yamaha MSP3

The Yamaha MSP3 Powered Monitor Speaker is a 2-way powered monitor speaker system that delivers quality audio and excellent cost performance. Designed for use in personal music production systems, each unit features a built-in 20-watt amplifier that drives both the 10cm (4") cone and 2.2cm (7/8") tweeter. To facilitate connection with a variety of audio sources, each monitor is equipped with a balanced XLR input, for direct compatibility with professional equipment, a balanced phone jack input and an unbalanced RCA jack input.

The MSP3 also features separate volume controls for the LINE 1 (RCA jack) input and LINE 2 (XLR/phone) input plus HIGH and LOW tone controls for sound tailoring.

The enclosure is a bass-reflex type that also incorporates Yamaha's Waveguide Technology for uniform dispersion of the tweeter's high frequencies. Magnetic shielding and compact size allows the monitors to be placed near any type of audio, video or computer equipment. The monitor can also be attached to a mic stand with the optional BMS10A Mic Stand Adapter.

Yamaha MSP3 Features

  • An Ideal Reference Monitor for Music Production: The MSP series has become the new standard in reference monitors and is now augmented by a new, compact member: the MSP3. Although compact in size, the MSP3 faithfully delivers the high-quality reference sound you expect from the MSP series
  • Compact Size with High-quality MSP Sound: The MSP3 employs a two-way bass reflex design featuring a 10-cm woofer and a 2.2-cm tweeter. It also has a built-in power amp that's optimized for the speaker units to ensure clear, natural reference sound
  • Versatile Inputs and Controls: In addition to an XLR connector that allows direct connection to a +4 dB mixer output or other professional equipment, the MSP3 provides phone jack and RCA jack connectors for convenient connection to electronic musical instruments or home audio equipment
  • Ceiling and Wall Mounting Options: The bottom panel of the MSP3 has threaded holes that can be used to attach an optional bracket for ceiling or wall mounting. Another mounting option is the BMS-10A mic stand adaptor, which allows the MSP3 to be conveniently mounted on a standard microphone stand

More like tools than speakers.


from Nashville, TN  -  Producer

At first, I wasn't sure I liked these. I was transported instantly back to the days of the NS-10 and I felt like these were the same ol' head bangers as the NS-10 was. But as I began to pour myself into a mix with them, I found that they are extremely responsive and very accurate. So, for the first 45 minutes I hated them. Now, 4 hours later, I really do dig them.
