Accurate and affordable studio monitoring
The Presonus Eris E7 XT is an active bi-amplified studio-grade monitor that is sold individually. It is fitted with a 6.5” woofer and 1.25” tweeter. Like all the members of the Eris range, the E7 XT is unusually well-balanced and natural-sounding for a speaker in its price range. It provides precise stereo imaging with high gain reserves, and its extensive and well-thought-out filter section is designed to seamlessly adapt the basic sound of the E7 XT to the acoustics of any environment. Anyone looking for a reliable and affordable near-field monitoring solution for their home studio should definitely consider the Presonus Eris E7 XT.
The right components for a well-balanced sound
The Presonus Eris E7 XT is fitted with a carefully designed and solidly built bass reflex cabinet made of vinyl-laminated MDF. As with all the Eris models, the woofers are made of Kevlar, producing a clean and precise bass response and even diffusion through all the lower frequencies. Similarly, the silk dome tweeter and waveguide reproduce all the high frequencies in a very natural way and provide a wide sweet spot in the listening position. Two separate class AB amplifiers respectively provide 60 and 70 Watts of power to the tweeter and woofer.
Ideal for the home studio
The Presonus Eris E7 XT is a reliable, no-frills, and affordable monitor, perfect for the home studio. We all know the complexities involved in improving the acoustics of a room, especially when the latter is not initially designed with music or postproduction in mind. The Eris E7 XT's crossover section is a great help in this respect. Its switchable low-cut filter suppresses unwanted resonant low frequencies (for example when the speaker is placed close to a wall) and two continuous filters adjust the midrange and treble by plus or minus 6 dB. In addition, the automatic "Acoustic Space" function cleans up the often critical low-midrange and ensures that the sound is reproduced as faithfully as possible.
Presonus is a US company founded in 1995 by Jim Odom and Brian Smith in Baton Rouge, Lousiana. The firm designs hardware and software at both professional and more affordable levels for musicians and producers. Presonus first made a splash in the mid-1990s with the DCP8, an eight-channel analogue compressor/limiter/gate with fader and mute automation that could be digitally controlled by MIDI. In the early 2000s followed a series of microphone amplifiers and the first audio interfaces for the then-emerging home studio scene. Today, the company's product range includes audio interfaces, microphone preamps, digital mixing consoles, and studio monitors as well as the established DAW software Studio One.
As a rule, a pair of E7 XTs are connected to the stereo analogue output of an audio interface or monitor controller. Each speaker is fitted with both a 6.3 mm jack and an XLR input, thus eliminating the need for an adapter. The inputs are balanced and provide 4 dBu of gain as a reference level, as is to be expected from studio equipment. Additionally, the Eris E7 XT is also fitted with an unbalanced -10 dBV RCA input, which allows hi-fi equipment to be connected.
