Recording’s Mike Metlay on the Eris Studio Monitors
The monitors roll out, and the reviews roll in. The PreSonus Eris monitor speakers are being met with the sort of enthusiastic reception that we previously have only associated with The Beatles or a new Star Wars picture.
Recording Magazine’s Mike Metlay Ph.D. is bona fide qualified, and we’re really excited that he’s the guy who got to review these products for Recording. That Ph D. is in nuclear physics, BTW. Here’s a couple pull-quotes from Mike’s review:
“PreSonus’ first studio monitors present very neat solutions to the problem of affordable, good-sounding monitoring for small studios.”
“Let’s talk price. The E5 costs a bit more per pair than a set of cheap-ass desktop computer speakers and a thumpy little one-note sub, but for your money you get monitors you can actually use for real engineering. The E8 is even more of a no-brainer: it basically allows recording musicians who want proper full-range studio monitors, but don’t yet have the budget for high-end products, to get into the game without hurting themselves.”
