Recording’s Mike Metlay on the Eris Studio Monitors

June 2,2013

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.”
Readers who want to get into the nitty-gritty details of  frequency response, 12 dB/octave highpass filter options, and more, please download the full PDF of the review by clicking this sentence.

    May I simply say what a relief to find somebody that really knows what they are talking
    about online. You actually know how to bring a problem to
    light and make it important. More and more people have to
    check this out and understand this side of your story.

    It’s surprising you’re not more popular since you
    surely have the gift.

    But how much are these Eris monitor?. You say they are a little more expensive than a couple of computer speakers, but nowhere can I find a price for them. Are you scared to say? Maybe they’re not cheap at all. So I repeat…how much are they?

      Go to any online retailer and the prices are available… Guitar Center, Musicians Friend, Sweetwater, Sam Ash, etc…

          I have these on my desk right now and I’m pretty impressed with them. Heard a lot of monitors in this size and price range and these meet or exceed them so far.
