MeBeSte's: Yamaha MSR400 Review
If you are a DJ looking for a great powered speaker or a musician who requires an amp - Yamaha's MSR400 speaker could be just for you!
The woofers are available in 8", 10" & 12" going from 100-400 watts of power accepting mic/line in as well as supporting built-in pole sockets for stand mounting. They are built extremely well and will last many, many years.
I am a mobile DJ and I have used a set of the 12" powered speakers for various disco's. The sound quality is superb all the way from clarity to bass so no need for an amp. My friend plays the guitar, he has plugged it into one of my speakers before and he was more than impressed with what they could produce so I would recommend them to guitarists and other musicians alike. I have also heard they are great for stage monitors although I cannot personally vouch for this from experience.
They are really simple to transport with integral, ergonomic handles and fairly lightweight coming in at just over 50 pounds per speaker - The 100 watt models weights just 24 pounds. I usually use passive speakers in my set up but the controls are simple and its easy to amend level adjustments for bass, treble and more.
I would say that the price is fairly high although they are more than worth it and you wouldn't be disappointed if you were looking to buy one, a set or even more.
