PreSonus' range of Eris monitors is made up of the compact E4.5s, slightly larger E5s and the largest of them all, the E8s, which provide the deepest bass response out of the three. All have made quite a name for themselves as speakers that offer a very neutral response across the entire frequency range, especially give their low price.

PreSonus Eris monitors (consisting of the smaller E5s and the larger/bassier E8s) have caused quite a stir since they were released earlier this year. Despite their relatively low price, Eris monitors have received rave reviews throughout the industry and for good reason. If you're local, feel free to pop into our store and demo a pair and we're sure that you'll realise what all the fuss is about.
Eris monitors provide a fantastic all-round monitoring solution no matter what type of music you work with. They're bassy enough for dance music producers and detailed enough in the mids and highs to sculpt high-quality rock, pop and acoustic mixes.

We've recently received our first shipment of KRK's brand new third generation Rokit monitors! These new models retain the huge bass response that made the generation 2 monitors so popular, but they significantly improve their high-frequency response, allowing you to make more detailed mix decisions across the entire frequency range. However, if you ever want to revert back to the characteristic duller sound of the G2s, the G3s feature controls on the back that can be used for just this. As you get both high and low level controls on the rear, you can also refine the sound of the G3 monitors in order to customise them to your own listening environment by counteracting unwanted acoustic artefacts that your room might impose on your sound.
Oh, and one more thing! We've also put together some super money-saving bundles that include KRK RP G3 monitors so be sure to check them out!

KRK Rokit Powered active monitors are extremely popular with home and professional producers alike. Famed for their exceptional bass response, KRK RPs are particularly popular with dance music producers, who want to get their tracks in tip top condition for being heard through big systems on a dancefloor. However, they are also a perfect option for producers of any type of music who require great sound at a great price.
KRK RP monitors come in three different two-way models: the smallest is the RP5 (although it's still extremely bassy for its size), then there's the slightly larger and bassier RP6 and finally there's the beastly RP8.
For anyone wanting to bag themselves a set of professional KRK monitors, up until the end of August 2013, you can make awesome savings on KRK RP5, RP6 and RP8 active monitors so now is the time to buy if you've got a pair of these on your shopping list!
