Further cementing their long-standing reputation as stewards of quality in pro audio journalism, Tape Op recently ran a flattering review of our Eris Monitors, which, coincidentally enough, are now in stores. Doublethanks to Eli Crews for the kind words.
A few of those words follow: “I found both of these monitor models very useful tools for the imperfect art of home-studio mixing… if you were to put them up in a very controlled environment, next to speakers you paid a bunch of money for, you would probably find things here and there about them you didn’t like – although you may be surprised. Setting them up in my humble (yet effective) home studio for a few months helped me hear things I wasn’t hearing previously and helped me to provide better mixes for my clients. At the end of the day, that matters much more than the price tag of the speaker or the label on the front. Job well done, PreSonus.” Click here to read the full review: http://tapeop.com/reviews/gear/96/eris-e5-active-studio-monitor/
Sonic Sense Pro Audio just posted this first-look (first-listen?) video of the Sceptre S8 CoActual monitors. They compared the Sceptre S8 ($749, each) to the much more expensive Genelec 8050A ($2195, each) and the Adam A7x ($699, each) monitors. All monitors involved in the shootout were cautiously miked and measured, and detailed frequency response and phase charts are presented for each.
Sonic Sense is very thorough, which I suppose makes for the “Sense” part of “Sonic Sense.”

“As promised, the sound quality truly does stand up well beside high-end monitors that have become “household” names in the studio world including ADAM, Genelec, JBL, and Neumann.”
