The MSP 3 supports much higher tones when you are just working with singers and guitars in the studio. This helps you get basic studio work done and it also saves you money. You know that you need something in the studio that will be reliable and you can still adjust the device when you need to.

Yamaha MSP 7 Studio is one of the monitors you will enjoy the most 'cause it has better bass capabilities than other monitors in its class. You can adjust it to help someone with a low voice, a bass heavy band and a group that has a lot of horns or other low instruments. You will enjoy the way the monitor sounds when you get it going in the studio, and you need to remember that it will work well in tandem with a higher monitor for better balance.
