Review of the PreSonus Eris 3.5 Media Reference Speakers
Review of the PreSonus Eris 3.5 Media Reference Speakers
Making A Scene presents a Review of the PreSonus Audio Electronics Eris 3.5 Speakers!

One of the realities of recording engineers is the fact that we all understand our weakest link in our mixing and mastering workflow is the speaker. Many studios have a variety of speakers they use as a reference, from the super expensive speakers like the Focal's down to smaller consumer quality speakers like the famous NS10's.

Today we take a look at these Media Reference Monitors that come in, amazingly, at under $100! At this price they are an easy purchase to justify for your studio setup.
