What is it? Yamaha’s flagship powered monitor speaker designed to handle any combination of digital and analogue sources as well as stereo and surround formats. DetailsThe MSP7 Studio monitor houses a 6.5” woofer driven by an 80W amplifier along with a 1” dome tweeter with its own 50W power amplifier – a driver/power combination said to offer the ideal balance between the low-mid and high-frequency ranges. The 45Hz – 40kHz frequency response is divided via electronic crossover placed before the power amplifier inputs and featuring steep 30-dB/octave roll-off curves in both the low- and high-pass filters to minimise inter-modulation between the frequency bands at the crossover point. The line-level electronic design is said to completely eliminate the loss, distortion and inter-modulation typical of passive crossover networks driven by a single power amplifier. The low-frequency driver features a specially-treated polypropylene cone with low-damping rubber surrounds designed to offer an “exceptionally smooth” response. The tweeter features a titanium dome said to combine light weight and rigidity for precise reproduction up to 40kHz in conjunction with a waveguide offering a uniform high-frequency 120º dispersion. The one-piece moulded enclosure features a rounded baffle and is fully magnetically shielded. The design includes both a low-cut switch and trim control plus a 31-position level control to facilitate precise system matching.
