    I'm assuming you're comparing the Yamaha HS5s to the Adam T5Vs since they're in the same price range. Personally, I'd go with the Adam Audio T5V for the better tweeter. However, you may also want to consider the Kali Audio LP6. They're better than the HS5s, near as good as the T5V and cheaper than both.

    I went with the 7" Adams and am definitely satisfied. I can only assume the 5" is just as nice. Are you planning on matching a sub to the pair?
    I only ask because the 7" has just enough bass that i dont think i'll need a sub for my hobbyist space. The 5" though....you may find lacking some low end coverage.

    I’ve got HS5’s in my studio (14x14 room) and I’m honestly scared to even move onto something else. I’m so used to them now that I don’t want to have to re-learn a new pair.

    They get pretty damn loud for being as small as they are. Louder than I’ll ever need them to get. I did need to get a sub though. Not nearly enough low-end to get an accurate reading of what’s actually going on down there. I found some random Yamaha sub, I’m guessing from a home entertainment system. Works fine for filling out the low end and like the speakers, I’m so used to how it sounds that it’s another thing I’d have to re-learn on something different.
