Few studio monitors have enjoyed the longevity and acclaim (as well as an army of vocal detractors...) of the Yamaha NS-10M, which isn't all that bad for a speaker that was originally designed and marketed for casual home listening. They've got anything but a flat response, but the idea is that when you get a mix perfect on a pair of NS-10M's, that mix will be perfect everywhere. When legendary engineer Bob Clearmountain started carting his set around NYC in the 1980s, colleagues took notice and the NS-10M became standard-issue kit for major recording studios all over the globe.

Samson servo 170 amp included.

Originally designed and marketed as a home audio "bookshelf" speaker, the Yamaha NS-10M has gained notoriety and popularity as a nearfield studio monitor starting from it's appearance at the legendary Power Station studio in NYC.

The NS-10M won Yamaha a Technical Grammy in 2007, citing that the speakers were used in "almost every studio."

The NS-10M "Pro" was introduced in 1987 and is technically an identical speaker. It came with grill covers and was designed for vertical orientation (most studios used NS-10M horizontally).

Notable users: Bob Clearmountain, Alan Moulder
