PreSonus E44 and E66 MTM Studio Monitors:

While MTM technically stands for “Midwoofer—Tweeter—Midwoofer,” you ought to know that they’re good from Mixing-To-Mastering. The MTM speaker configuration allows the MTM studio monitors to deliver the widest stereo field available in their class. You get a more consistent listening experience from varied listening perspectives. They’re also louder than they look, since the combined signal of the two relatively small drivers propagates forward like a single waveform. This mutual coupling provides a highly dynamic output in a compact footprint. And if footprint’s not an issue, mount them horizontally. We’ve designed them to sound just as good in either configuration.

Check out this video from A-list producer Chaka Blackmon. He relies on the Eris E66s for his daily grind.

PreSonus R-series R80 and R60 AMT Studio Monitors:

The R-series contrasts from the MTMs in a couple ways. While the singular woofer approach is a more traditional, the Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter is the star of the show. At the core of AMT is the astonishingly thin (< 0.01 mm!) Kapton® membrane voice coil, which moves at the same instant as the current that drives it, with no dampening applied to negatively affect the tweeter’s transient response time.

As a result, the R-Series faithfully reproduce the highest frequencies that can be heard by the human ear—and the vast majority of human microphones. The sonic result is a greater sense of air, space, and imaging that is characteristic of audiophile recordings and off-the-charts transient response. Furthermore, the AMT’s design inherently offers 8 to 13 times the projection area of a typical dome tweeter. This widens the stereo image considerably, while keeping problematic vertical dispersion in check. Consequently, the R80s sound consistent regardless of what room you place them in; a versatile choice for audio recording studios and post-production.

Here’s Mike White on the R-series.

Finally, both the R-series and the MTMs offer all the Acoustic Space tuning and connectivity options you’d ever need, and include RCA, 1/4″, and XLR inputs.

Tiny Frog Media Reviews the Eris E8 Studio Monitors

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.”
