When you're ready to get serious about recording, it's time to step up to PreSonus Eris-series studio monitors. Cheap computer speakers and home-stereo speakers won't reveal the truth about your mix. They aren't 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. That's what you need in a home studio.

Notes Craig Anderton in his EM review of the E8 (March 2013), "The bass is tight and defined, with solid transient response, and the highs are accurate.... Accuracy is paramount in the studio, because transportability is crucial-and the E8 scores high in that regard." Adds Strother Bullins (Pro Audio Review, September 2013), "Overall, the monitors are impressively frequency neutral with great imaging." Trevor Curwen (Future Music, July 2013) concurs: "Clarity is good and the overall balance of frequencies is one that you can work with, the top end coming through prominently and clearly revealing the detail, while the bottom end is tight and focussed and extends down far enough to allow you to make those important mix decisions."

The E5 delivers less bass than the E8 but according to Recording magazine's Mike Metlay (March 2013), "The rolloff in the bass was polite and smooth, and there was a lot of thump in kick drums and solid harmonic structure in bass guitars and low piano notes.... Mids were forward and rockin', with vocals and guitars prominent and detailed; on acoustic tracks, details like finger squeaks on strings and breaths for phrasing were clear and evident.... Highs were extended and smooth, without any edgy spikiness or resonances that leaped out; finger cymbals and hi-hats were clear and bright, and when an artist substituted a sample for the real thing, you could often tell."

Indeed, thanks to well-designed Kevlarr low frequency transducers, low-mass silk-dome tweeters, responsive Class AB amplification, and professional acoustic-adjustment controls, all Eris models deliver the goods.

Yet Eris-series speakers are ultra-affordable, making them a terrific value. And with three 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 ultra-compact Eris E4.5. It may be the size of a computer speaker, but this mighty mite delivers professional audio quality, thanks to a 4.5-inch, Kevlar low-frequency driver; a low-mass, 1 inch, silk-dome tweeter with protective grille; and Class AB amplification. Each speaker is powered by a 25W Class AB amplifier-plenty of juice for a small speaker. The E4.5 ranges from 70 Hz up to 20 kHz, and at 6.42 x 9.45 x 7.09 inches (163 x 241 x 180 mm), you can shoehorn this little beauty into almost any studio space.

The next step up in size and power is the Eris E5, which takes up just 7 x 10.24 x 7.68 inches (178 x 260 x 195 mm). 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, that's 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 E8's 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).
