When youre ready to get serious about recording, its time to step up to PreSonus Eris-series studio monitors. Cheap computer speakers and home-stereo speakers wont reveal the truth about your mix. They arent designed for that.

In contrast, Eris speakers are real studio monitors, delivering a very accurate response with a tight bass and very clear upper end. Thats what you need in a home studio. Thanks to well-designed Kevlar low frequency transducers, low-mass silk-dome tweeters, responsive Class AB amplification, and professional acoustic-adjustment controls, Eris delivers the goods.

Yet Eris-series speakers are ultra-affordable, making them a terrific value. And with two models, you can easily find the Eris monitor that best suits your studio needs.

When Size Matters
If space is at a premium, or if you want the ultimate in portability, consider the compact Eris E5, which takes up just 7 x 10.24 x 7.68 inches (178 x 260 x 195 mm) and weighs in at just 10.2 lbs (4.63 kg). You can shoehorn this little beauty into almost any studio space.

The E5 sports a 5.25-inch, Kevlar low-frequency driver, mated with a 45W, Class AB amplifier; and a 1-inch (25 mm), silk-dome tweeter powered by a 35W, Class AB amplifier. It can crank out a clean 102 dB SPL, peak. Frequency response is rated at 53 Hz to 22 kHz. For a studio monitor in its size and price class, thats impressive.

For an extended low-frequency response and a bit more muscle, step up to the Eris E8. With its 8-inch, Kevlar low-frequency transducer, driven by a 75 watt, Class AB power amplifier, it can range down to 35 Hz. Like the E5, the E8 can reach all the way to 22 kHz, thanks to a 1.25-inch (32 mm), silk-dome, high-frequency tweeter. However, the E8s tweeter is driven by a heftier 65W, Class AB amplifier. With its extra juice, the E8 can deliver up to 105 dB SPL, peak.

All Eris speakers have front-ported enclosures made of vinyl-laminated, medium-density fiberboard (MDF).

I've owned these speakers for about 8 months now. I love them! They sound great, they're made well. I was on the fence between these and the Rockit's... No regrets here.

The sound on this speaker is fantastic. For features, it has a balanced XLR input (so my cell phone doesn't upset the sound). It has a low-pass filter so that you can adjust the sound for being in a smaller or larger environment, a midrange and treble control and a gain knob. They all lock with a satisfying feeling in their unity zone. Now, the sound that comes out of this speaker depends on your input: a record player sounds smooth as butter, but my iMac sounds sharp as a razor, just as a monitor should sound. As for how loud this unit goes: 102dB is the official figure, but other speakers I've had mentioned similar specs and didn't deliver as much as this speaker does. I don't know how reliable this speaker is... Can I play it on the threshold of sound distortion for 5 hours in a row? Other than that, without a doubt in my mind, for a monitor speaker on a budget, get this one. Everything that costs less sounds terrible, imo.
