Review: Presonus Eris E8 Active Studio Monitors G.W. Childs IV on Dec 11, 2013 in REVIEW • 0 comments Alright, I was recently given the opportunity to try some monitors other than the ones (Genelecs) that I’ve been using for years. This was almost a little uncomfortable for me, because I don’t like my idea of perfection challenged. I want to believe that when I bought those Genelecs for over 2k, years ago, I would never have to even think about another monitor again. Well, Presonus really made me question my beliefs with the Eris 8s, or E8s. And, in this review, I’m going to tell you why. The Look First off, and possibly the least important point, but valid at any rate- These speakers are eye candy. Honestly, when I pulled them out of the box, my Genelecs seemed very dinky. The Eris E8s are pretty big for speakers priced at where they are. And, not only are they a decent size, they have a very slick, matte black ﬁnish that will go well in any studio, regardless of the intended aesthetics. They also have a very cool, dimly illuminated Presonus logo that keeps that bad ass look in your studio going, even when the lights are off. What makes a pair of active monitors stand out from the crowd? G. W. Childs IV uses his ears and experience to test drive the Presonus Eris E8s in his studio. Read on to discover the low-down.
