    Are these any good for standalone speakers?

    •  

      Yamaha would say yes. I would say yes for less bass-heavy music. If you need to hear full range though I recommend pairing with a subwoofer (the NS-333’s only reach down to 60hz).
      Knowing Yamaha they may be on the ‘flat’ side in terms of sound signature with a slightly ‘bright’ top-end.

    •  

      I use them as my fronts (left and right), they do well.

      •  

        Good to hear. The waveguide is something that tends to be missing in many bookshelf’s. Especially in the entry-level range like the NS-333.

        •  

          so would you suggest this with a subwoofer or just grab the yamaha HS8 as a pair?

          •  

            @asafasr: Firstly,
            They are both for different applications. So setup and use between NS-333 (passive speakers) and HS8 (active monitors) is very different.
            Setup, components & cables required is completely different between both speakers (HS8 being active studio monitors, you will have to use balanced cables & plug them into a balanced pre-amp to control the volume).

            I’m pretty sure with the HS8 you will still need a subwoofer in the end (the low-end at +/-3db is 47hz, nothing extra-ordinary in my opinion).

            Also daily use is very different, with NS-333 you just turn on the amplifier (with remote) to listen. But with HS8 you have to turn on your pre-amp, then reach around back of each speaker and turn them on.

            In terms of sound I would say HS8 sounds clinical, while NS-333 would be sweeter and more forgiving.

    now the question is…these or Rokit KRK 5s?

    •  

      Again as in my reply to asafasr, they are for different applications.
      The NS-333 are passive bookshelf speakers, you need an amp to drive them.
      The Rokits being powered for around $350 a pair, would be half the cost of the NS-333 in the deal + a new amplifier.
      Keep in mind you will need a pre-amp to control the Rokits.

      I have heard the sound of KRK Rokit monitors are coloured & slightly bass boosted for studio monitors, so the sound is maybe more suited to mainstream music listening than the more flat-tuned NS-333 bookshelf’s.

      Please be aware KRK Rokit 5 G3 now being sold @storedj have RCA (line) inputs, but Rokit 5 G4 has only balanced inputs like Yamaha HS8.
