Welcome to a brand new MusicTech Buyer’s Guide where we round up some of the best products recently reviewed by us. We kick it off with the most important of studio items: the monitor. Let’s start with our best budget choice…
PreSonus Eris 4.5
The Eris range is brand new from PreSonus. MT monitor expert Huw Price was particularly taken with the 4.5s, which only weigh in at £169 for the pair! Huw said:
“We hadn’t expected that much from them because they resemble computer speakers and are priced accordingly.
Given those caveats the sound quality was absolutely remarkable. Of all three Eris monitors they have the finest bass definition, but it is possible to detect some roll-off in the lowest frequencies. The imaging was also remarkably crisp, and although the obvious application may be use with computers we’d have no qualms about integrating them into our studio monitor setup.
“These are not expensive monitors but they punch way above their price point. ”
