Computer Games Online heeft een hele korte review van de Yamaha YST-M50 Speakers gebakken.
Though the system is rated at a total wattage of 80W, it doesn't sound nearly that powerful. It's definitely not weak by any means, but don't expect the kind of room-filling sound you would get from 80W worth of home stereo equipment. For PC purposes, they definitely get loud enough. Yamaha employs their new exclusive "active servo technology" which is supposed to drastically improve bass performance, but there's really nothing amazing about it. The bass response is good, not stellar, and about what you'd expect from a $130 set of speakers. Mid and high-range tones are also handled well, but again, won't blow you away with amazing clarity. Speakers in this price range should be pretty good, and Yamaha's latest are. Beyond that, there's nothing particularly impressive or special about them. They're a good choice, and won't disappoint, but they're too expensive to be a great value and not quite as good-sounding as some more expensive speaker sets. At least they come in stylish black as well as standard "computer white."
