The Mackie Big Knob and Yamaha HS5 Speaker Kit from B&H includes a Mackie Big Knob, a pair of Yamaha HS5 monitors, a set of monitor isolation pads, and a pair of 10-foot XLR to 1/4" TRS cables for connecting the monitors to the Big Knob.

The Big Knob provides desktop control volume control for the included HS5s, allowing you to connect up to 4 sources to up to 3 monitor outputs, with routing possibilities including 3 pairs of monitors or 2 pairs of monitors and a subwoofer. It also has a built-in talkback microphone and dual 1/4" headphone outputs with independent volume control.

The Yamaha HS5s each feature a 5-inch woofer and a 1-inch dome tweeter and provide a combined 140-watts of total output. With the Room Control and High Trim features, the HS5s can be tuned to perform in your room. The included isolation pads allow you to decouple the HS5s from what they will be placed on, which reduces vibrations and provides improved bass response. The included pair of XLR to 1/4" TRS cables can be used to connect the HS5s to the Big Knob.

  • Mackie BIGKNOB - Control Room Monitoring Distributor
    The Mackie BIG KNOB is a compact, moderately priced, tabletop control room speaker selector and router unit, that effectively replaces the monitoring section of a mixing board in the often console-less professional and project DAW recording studio. The versatility of this unit invites possible use as an audio control center for a more elaborate home stereo or Home Theater system, as well.

    The BIG KNOB actually has one, in the form of a large, robust, high precision volume control knob that services a generous array of selector switches and monitoring options. Speaking of volume, this is a very high output piece of gear, with lots of headroom.

    The BIG KNOB switches are all equipped with activity LED indicators, and the built-in Talkback mic, dual Headphone outputs, and main Studio Outs all provide an independent volume control knob. The rear panel Monitor and Studio Out connector sections, in addition to each of the source inputs, are equipped with individual trim controls, as well.

    All function switches, selector switches, and connectors are very clearly labeled and ruggedly housed; the emphasis in the design of the BIG KNOB is on intuitive setup, simplified navigation, and clean sound. The refreshingly sleek and modest appearance, ergonomically and logically presented, indicates a sense of real world understanding and experience on the part of Mackie's engineering team.

  • 2 x Yamaha HS5 Powered Studio Monitor
    The HS5 Powered Studio Monitor from Yamaha is a bi-amplified monitor that is designed for accurate sound reproduction. It is capable of up to 70W of total output and features a 5-inch woofer and a 1-inch tweeter with waveguide that can produce frequencies up to 30kHz. The HS5 has both an XLR and 1/4" TRS input that accept either balanced or unbalanced signals for integration into a variety of studio setups.
    Low Resonance Enclosure Design
    HS Series cabinets are designed to eliminate unwanted resonance and increase the accuracy of sound reproduction to their extreme limit. The enclosures are constructed from a dense MDF with a damped acoustic response. HS Series engineers also employed a traditional three-way mitered-joint technique. Common to architectural design, this construction firmly anchors the corners of the enclosure to improve durability and eliminate unwanted resonance that can influence overall sound
    Noise Reduction Technology
    Speaker port design can greatly influence the clarity of overall sound. Often a vortex at the either end of the port can generate air vibrations inside of the port, causing unwanted noise. By adopting a noise reduction technology that incorporates an analysis of a visual representation of the sound, Yamaha's engineers are able to control and reduce the vortex. Through this analysis Yamaha has arrived at a port design that reduces noise up to 6dB
    Controls and Connectivity
    HS Series full-range models feature two response controls with settings that allow them to adapt to the surface acoustics of rooms of varying shape and size. ROOM CONTROL allows you to attenuate the unnatural, exaggerated low-end that can often occur when speakers are placed next to walls, while HIGH TRIM allows for more flexible control of high frequency response. For inputs, HS full-range speakers can accommodate a range of balanced and unbalanced sources such as mixers, keyboards and audio interfaces with XLR and TRS phone jacks

  • Auralex MoPAD - Monitor Isolation Pads for Pair of Speakers (4 Pieces per Side)
    Sometimes cheap and easy solutions provide benefits that far outweigh the cost. In this instance, isolating one's monitors from what they are standing on, be it speaker stands or the meter bridge of a console, can provide an instant improvement in bass response and stereo imaging. The MoPAD Monitor Isolation Pads from Auralex provide sonic isolation between monitors and whatever they are resting on, instantly improving the accuracy of the entire monitoring system.

    MoPAD Monitor Isolation Pads are affordable, easy to implement and really effective at de-coupling monitors from the room and all its contents. No matter how good the mixing desk, microphones, preamps, cables and other pieces of gear that have been patiently accumulated, one is not truly hearing what the recordings sound like until the monitors are insulated from their environment. Depending on how the monitors are oriented (level or tilted), not all of the eight pieces will be used.

    Made of proprietary, high density foam
    "Tightens" and increases sonic detail of studio reference monitors, particularly low frequencies
    Lightweight and ready to use immediately
    Offers five angles for optimal monitoring

  • 2 x Pearstone PM Series 1/4" TRS M to XLR M Professional Interconnect Cable - 15' (4.6 m)
    The Pearstone PM Series 1/4" TRS M to XLR M Professional Interconnect Cable (15') is ideal for audio applications in which a device with an XLR input needs to be connected to a device with a balanced 1/4" output. Typical scenarios include connecting the output of a mixing board or audio interface to a powered speaker, or using an aux send to route signal to an outboard effects processor.

    The cable is equipped with 24-gauge oxygen-free copper conductors and spiral shielding to protect against EMI and RFI noise. The professional-grade cast-zinc Rean XLR connector is field serviceable and features silver-plated contacts, while the Rean 1/4" TRS connector features a molded design for maximum strain relief. The twin conductive PVC shield reduces electrostatic noise, and distinguishes the PM series as the best value in its class.
