PreSonus R65 Active Studio Monitor

The PreSonus R65's custom 6.8-inch Air Motion Transformer (AMT) ribbon tweeter responds to the subtlest waveforms and the highest frequencies, resulting in a greater sense of "air" and "space" that is characteristic of audiophile recordings. Custom coated, woven, 6.5-inch Kevlar LF drivers produce a more dynamic output than conventional designs, thanks to the rigid cone's ability to maintain a more constant dispersion pattern across its frequency response range. The result is transparent sound with narrow vertical dispersion, which reduces undesirable reflections, and broad horizontal dispersion for a wide sweet spot. Driven by a 150W Class D amplifier, the biamped R65 delivers an open, clear, and less fatiguing listening experience. Acoustic Space controls help compensate for room anomalies, and an onboard high-pass filter to easily to add a subwoofer, making the R65 an ideal choice for any professional listening environment.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Simply Amazing"
Overall: These speakers are absolutely amazing. Great low end and presence. Clear, natural low and mid range. The top end is the clearest I've ever heard and yet smooth at the same time. Yet they aren't fatiguing at all to listen to. I can hear details like subtle distortion and compression that I've never heard before on other monitors (some more expensive). At first I was worried there was something wrong with my interface. Clean mixes sounds perfect. Squashed, low bit rate or distorted mixes stand out like a sore thumb. There's that much detail. The phantom center is clear and spacious. You can hear and place things in a 3D space. The controls on the back are handy. They even have an auto off setting which you can engage or disengage using a combination of buttons. I monitor at low volumes so I left it disengaged. They have RF shielding built in and it works like a champ. I live near a radio tower and tried three other sets of monitors. All emitted so much buzzing and bleeps they were unusable. These monitors are impervious to it. Seriously. I do notice a slight amp hiss but it's comparable to many other speakers I've owned in the past and quickly disappears during use. I've owned Yamaha HS5s, HS7s, HS80Ms and MSP5s. I've owned Event 20/20BAS V3s. I've owned Presonus Sceptre S8s and Eris E5s. These R65s surpass all but the Sceptres when it comes to detail and transparency across the spectrum. They are very well balanced. I will add that I prefer them to the Sceptres too as the Sceptres were very clear but also quite fatiguing to use. I cannot recommend these monitors enough.

"Sound AMAZING with my Kawai MP11"
Overall: Bought these because i wanted something a bit better than my JBLLSR305 BUT did not want to spend the money of Focals or Adams. 3 months deep now and R65 surpassed all my expectations . These sound absolutely fantastic out of the box paired up with my MP11. I am hearing such a clean powerful detailed piano sound that I did not hear . The AMT tweeter which is pretty much the same on the Admas delivers such clarity. 150w is pushing these effortlessly. Also sound great with music off my iPad. big sweetspot for nice stereo sound. You can actually hear each instrument in such detail. As expected form studio monitors i know, but R65 takes it to next level for short money in my opinion.
Style of Music: mostly jazz and classical. but any genre as long as I get paid!
