PreSonus Eris E8 XT Active Studio Monitor

PreSonus updated their bestselling Eris studio monitors with a larger ported enclosure for deeper lows, and an elliptical waveguide for a wider sweet spot.

With the same robust connectivity options and powerful, articulate driver combo, the Eris PreSonus E8 XT studio monitor is a nuanced update to a lauded classic. The 1.25-inch silk-dome tweeter now sports a Hugh Sarvis-designed EBM waveguide, delivering a wider and more controlled sweet spot ideal for group listening and collaboration. A larger, ported enclosure extends the bass response of the 8-inch woven composite low-frequency driver without adding any mud. And of course, the acoustic tuning controls let you flatten the frequency response in accordance with your mix environment. It's Eris, remastered.

"Wow, very impressive studio monitor!"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
I owned the older version and thought it was really a great sounding monitor, and then I tried the new XT version. WOW! The sweet spot is extended and imaging is very much improved. These things work well for not only my studio work, but I am also using them for my live DJ streams on Twitch. These things really get loud when needed! For $259, these are a steal of a deal!
