Eris™ Studio Monitors

If your speakers aren't accurate, you can't know whether your music is properly recorded and mixed. Many ensemble balance problems cannot be address unless the speakers have a wide frequency range and "flat" response. Computer speakers and home audio products are not designed for music recording and do not provide an accurate representation of your sound. PreSonus Eris studio monitors are accurate, flat, and offer easy-to-use controls that let you adjust their response for your space. These are the ideal speakers for the classroom, lab, or school recording studio—and they're available at a very affordable price!
