HardwareZone heeft vandaag een review on line gemikt van de Yamaha YST-MS50 speakerset. Het betreft hier een 2.1 setje met 20 Watt vermogen per satelliet en 40 Watt voor de subwoofer. De geluidskwaliteit is qua bass net iets beter dan de MidiLand S4 4060M, hoewel de hoge tonen en de midrange van de S4 4060M weer van betere kwaliteit zijn.
The YST-MS50's vocal reproductions were acceptable although I preferred it to be more gentle with the midrange. It isn't as sweet and mellow as the MidiLand S4 4060M and it can get a little harsh at higher volume settings. However, modern musical instruments will benefit from its superb clarity and crispness. In addition, pop music actually sounded a lot more lively and exciting with the YST-MS50. It's just hard to resist shaking your bon-bons.
The Yamaha YST-MS50 is an interesting speaker system that delivers heart pounding bass with superb clarity. This 90W baby can deliver pounds of energy to your living room and bring life to even the dullest music. I find the YST-MS50 suitable for movies, pop/rock music and instrumentals. However, if you listen to lots of classical music and pay a lot of attention to vocals, you may find it a little too harsh for such musical genres. If you can do without the control module (like the one that came with the MidiLand S4 4060M), you might just like the Yamaha YST-MS50 for its powerful bass.
