What is your opinion of this product?
I ran an A/B test with the Eris E8's and Yamaha HS8's. For me, the HS8's had piercing highs that weren't manageable at Unity. The E8's sound flat at Unity. I was leary at first, given that Presonus isn't known for studio monitors, but I am pleased with my purchase. I'm a musician first and an audio engineer out of necessity. With that said, I need my monitors to be flat and convey the truth. At my budget, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to find anything that would get me close to a truly flat sound, without low/mid/high over compensation. However, the E8's have definitely delivered. The front firing bass ports have dramatically improved the sound of my small studio monitoring environment as well. Rear firing ports + close proximity to a wall x small room = sonic disaster. Stepping up from 5.25's, I can now clearly hear the bass nuances that need to be addressed. Also, the shielding is amazing. I no longer have an issue with crosstalk and computer noises.
