Would these be any good for a home theater? I only watch movies and tv series and my couch is approx. 15 feet from the tv and sound source. I currently have a lower quality soundbar and would like to upgrade. Thanks !

thank you for your response. I noticed after that this was not a pair but a unique speaker. That being said, it does make for an expensive set, especially considering the fact of shipping and customs (Canada)

Yeah these are a industry standard for audio engineers. Not so much for home theaters. Hope you find something good.

I know the response of some will be that I am I not trying to compare "apples to apples", but please indulge me. How do these sound compared to the JBL LSR305s? Is it a worthwhile upgrade over them or even an upgrade at all?

Wow, that is an extremely limited drop for such a mass produced item. It's not like these are individually hand made then dried under the Balinese sun.

For $60 less, a pair of Adam Audio T7V monitors will out-perform the Yamaha HS8 in regards to treble resolution, near-field listening, and overall frequency response linearity.

WARNING: by purchasing these from Massdrop unless something goes wrong with them in the first 30 days YAMAHA WILL NOT HONOR THE MANUFACTURER WARRANTY BECAUSE MASSDROP IS NOT AN AUTHORIZED YAMAHA DEALER. I purchased my HS8's last year - and this year one of the monitors has a low level hiss and crackle (most likely a power supply). When I contacted Yamaha Support to register my speakers I put in MASSDROP as the purchaser. Looking on the Yamaha web site I found this in the FAQ's:
Warranty Policies Yamaha provides warranty coverage for new Yamaha products originally sold by Yamaha Authorized Dealers located in the United States. Yamaha products purchased from retailers other than Yamaha Authorized Dealers (whether via the Internet, or otherwise) will NOT be covered by Yamaha’s warranties, and U.S. service centers will not repair such products under warranty. Check our Service Locator for a list of U.S. Authorized Servicers. https://usa.yamaha.com/support/warranty/index.html
Now I'm looking at paying out of pocket for a brand new factory sealed monitor. I have not been able to find ANYTHING on the Massdrop site in their terms and conditions that state that purchasing through this e-commerce platform will VOID the manufacturers warranty.
While the speakers themselves are fabulous - the fact that I purchased them through MassDrop means that I have no warranty. There goes the deal. If Massdrop provides me with an authorized purchaser then I'll update the group.
Really disappointed to learn this. All they have to do is state that the manufacturer warranty is voided by not purchasing through an authorized dealer. If things change I'll let the group know. I've been a loyal and enthusiastic member of Massdrop for almost (3) years. Hate to learn this about a site I really enjoy purchasing through.

I have a subwoofer now for my computer audio system. It is a Yamaha HS8s. With this subwoofer's 8" woofer, I won't need the HS8, but could use the HS6 or even HS5, correct? I don't want to splurge on these to get the big boxes when the smaller units would sound better than having all 8" woofers, right?
I have a set of powered studio monitors now with a 6" woofer, and it seems to do just fine in the bass dep't. Does anyone have any hands on experience with the HS8s subwoofer paired with the HS8 monitors? Is it too much bass?
Is there any benefit to getting a pair of "non-studio monitors"? I have seen pairs of JBL and Klipsch self powered speakers that may be better suited to use as a computer sound system as far as many commenters on here go. How am I going to see if the speakers/monitors are better suited for my use without having to purchase and return/keep?

My local Guitar Center has a room for testing studio monitors and they have all 3 sizes of Yamaha HS*'s. You could call around and see if someone near you has something similar.
