PreSonus produce three different mid/ nearfield monitor ranges incorporating various interesting features like co-axial drivers (Sceptre) and ribbon tweeters (R-Series). But their most traditional design, Eris, is actually their most successful, and sports a slotted front port, woven woofer and silk dome tweeter. The range first appeared in 2013 and the original E8 scored a respectable 4/5 in our review with particular mention for its tone-shaping options, volume and bass delivery. The whole range has now received an overhaul and, although visually similar, it has both obvious and subtle differences. I have the 8” model (E8XT) for review and the most striking difference is its new EBM tweeter waveguide. This dominates the top third of the front baffle and contributes to the box being a couple of centimetres taller.
