Product Description

Details

Eris speakers are real studio monitors, delivering a very accurate response with a tight bass and very clear upper end. Thats what you need in a home studio. Thanks to well-designed Kevlar low frequency transducers, low-mass silk-dome tweeters, responsive Class AB amplification, and professional acoustic-adjustment controls, Eris delivers the goods.

When Size Matters

If space is at a premium, or if you want the ultimate in portability, consider the compact Eris E5, which takes up just 7 x 10.24 x 7.68 inches (178 x 260 x 195 mm) and weighs in at just 10.2 lbs. You can shoehorn this little beauty into almost any studio space.

With its 8-inch, Kevlar low-frequency transducer, driven by a 75 watt, Class AB power amplifier, it can range down to 35 Hz. Like the E5, the E8 can reach all the way to 22 kHz, thanks to a 1.25-inch (32 mm), silk-dome, high-frequency tweeter. However, the E8s tweeter is driven by a heftier 65W, Class AB amplifier. With its extra juice, the E8 can deliver up to 105 dB SPL, peak.


You're in control!

Todays music producers deal with a wide variety of musical genres and often work in more than one location. Its easy to take your Eris speakers with you when you want to work in a different space. Its almost as easy to customize their sound for your room and type of music.

The most basic control is the Input Gain, which determines the signal level before it reaches the power amp. This is part of gain-staging your overall systemthat is, setting the levels for every part of the recording chain in order to get the optimal level of clean audio all the way through. Once youve gain-staged your system, you can leave this control alone.

The Eris E8 provides three EQ controls in its Acoustic Tuning section: High, Mid, and Low Cutoff. These controls enable you to fine-tune the monitors and even to broadly approximate the sounds of different types of speakers so you can hear what your mix might sound like, for instance, on a car stereo or portable radio. The Low control also is useful when using the E5 or E8 with a subwoofer.

In addition to the Acoustic Tuning controls, Eris speakers offer a three-position Acoustic Space switch. This switch controls a second-order, low shelving filter that cuts the level of all frequencies below 800 Hz by a specified amount (-2 or -4 dB) to compensate for the boundary bass boost that occurs when the monitor is placed near a wall or corner. If you dont want to roll off those lows, set it to 0 dB.

This combination of controls lets you create a linear response for accurate monitoring and enables you to simulate different listening environments, so you dont have to listen to mixes on your car, consumer computer speakers, and home stereo to check how the music sounds with different systems. Instead, you can adjust the Eris monitors response and test your mixes without leaving your studio. No other monitors in this price class offer this degree of control.

Sound Thinking

By now, it should be clear that Eris-series speakers deliver a lot more than you would expect from a budget-priced studio monitors. As you expect from PreSonus, they use quality components, are well constructed, and deliver professional audio quality. Theyre lightweight and compact and look as professional as they sound.

But what really sets them apart from comparably priced systems are user controls that allow you to tailor the speakers response to your needs.

Dont just take our word for it, though. Visit your PreSonus dealer and hear the Eris E5 and E8 for yourself!
