We lost a good one. Robert Levin passed away on November 25. Robert was literally raised in his dad’s music store, Chuck Levin’s Washington Music Center, and grew to eventually run the family business along with his siblings. In doing so, they maintained dad’s well-deserved twin legacies of impeccable customer service and good ol’ hard work. Before Robert’s passing, the torch was passed to his son, Adam, who share responsibilities with his siblings; Alan and Abbe. This brings Chuck Levin’s Washington Music Center into its third generation as a family business.
Rick Naqvi recalls, “Robert was one of PreSonus’ earliest dealers, when we introduced our first product, the DCP-8. From that point forward he always offered us words of advice and encouragement in his most recognizable style as we went forward to become great business partners. Robert was one of the unique personalities in our industry, and we cherished his many contributions and of course his friendship.”
We’ll miss you, Robert. Please take a moment here with Rick to raise a glass to our departed friend.
In lieu of flowers, the Levin family has requested that donations be made to the Lung Cancer Research Foundation. If you have fond memories of Robert, as many of us do, you are welcome and encouraged to post them here.

The kind folks at Resoution Magazine recently put the Eris E8 studio Montiors through one of their signature, exhaustive bench tests. We’re pleased to report that Keith Holland from Resolution liked not only what he heard, but also what he measured. Here’s a snip.
“Overall the PreSonus Eris E8 is an excellent performer, especially at low frequencies. The designers have managed to combine a protected, extended low-frequency response and low distortion with an accurate low-frequency transient response. The other aspects of the performance do not disappoint either, with good time and frequency domain responses and controlled off-axis behaviour.”
You can read the entire bench test in Resolution’s October issue, available in digital form here.
