The HS8W has the same great features and transparent tone as the standard HS5 but with a look that will really make a statement in your studio! The HS8W Active Montior is perfect for use in small rooms or home studios where a more controlled volume is preferable to keep the room acoustics from having too much effect on the sound. There's still plenty of power available but with great control too!

Here's what Yamaha say about the HS Series Active Studio Monitors
Following their introduction at Frankfurt Musikmesse 2013, the second generation of Yamaha’s HS Series of nearfield studio-quality powered monitors have proved extremely popular in professional and home studios the world over. Now the 3-strong full-range lineup – HS5, HS7 & HS8 – are all available in a stunning white finish!
The HS Series – completed with the HS8S 150w powered subwoofer – shares the same design philosophy as the legendary NS-10M Studio Monitors and the subsequent highly-acclaimed MSP range, and is specifically designed (and priced) for the project home studio market. However, as is to be expected from Yamaha – an acknowledged world leader in nearfield studio monitor design and innovation – the HS range can easily hold its own against far more expensive monitors.
Built to last with high-grade components, the powerful 2-way bi-amped HS5 (70w), HS7 (95w) and HS8 (120w) studio reference monitors are ideal for mixing and music production, delivering an exceptionally smooth, flat and – most importantly – accurate response.
To uphold their reputation for delivering exceptionally clear, natural and detailed sound, Yamaha engineers designed new transducers for the HS range and produced proprietary technology that reduces audible noise – often caused by air vibrations – by up to 6dB; yet another example of the brilliant blend of design, technology and materials that will satisfy even the most demanding of music producers. And now they get to choose between two splendid colours, too!
