Product Description

Introducing the PreSonus R80 studio monitor - part of PreSonus' R series that are ideal for a professional recording artist or producer. PreSonus have obsessively engineered this fantastic speaker to give you the clearest audio over the widest range possible with a 1" tweeter that has been crafted from Kapton to give it a higher mass without compromising on the transient response time. The 8" woofer meanwhile gives you a more consistent dispersion pattern across the frequency response range thanks to its rigid, woven composite dome - with the added benefit of reducing listener fatigue. With it's changeable faceplate and acoustic tuning controls the PreSonus R80 will fit happily into any studio environment.

Hear the most subtle details.

The R80 features a custom 6.8-square-inch Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter that responds to the subtlest waveforms and the highest frequencies. This allows you to hear the "air" and the greater sense of space that is characteristic of audiophile recordings. The R80's transparent and highly accurate sound makes it ideal for use in both commercial and home recording studios as well as broadcast and post-production environments.

Superior transient response.

In order to dampen resonance peaks at higher frequencies, conventional dome tweeters are injected with fluid to raise their mass, sacrificing transient response time. By contrast, the custom-designed AMT tweeter in the R80 uses an incredibly thin, folded Kapton membrane (< 0.01 mm) with an inlayed aluminium circuit functioning as the voice coil, allowing the tweeter to move at the same instant as the electric current. The resulting reactive response time provides marked clarity and superior transient reproduction.

Wide, consistent stereo image.

An unfolded AMT tweeter diaphragm provides 8 to 13 times the projection area of a traditional 1-inch dome tweeter, enabling R80 monitors to provide a much wider stereo soundstage than traditional designs. At the same time, the R80 provides a very limited vertical dispersion, which helps to reduce reflections from the ceiling and desktop that can cause phase coherence issues. Because it's less subject to room-anomaly interference, the R80 reacts predictably and sounds consistent from room to room.

Transparent sound.

The R80 utilises an 8-inch, woven composite, low-frequency driver. This rigid cone maintains a more consistent dispersion pattern across its frequency response range. Biamped and driven by a 150W Class D amplifier - making the R series some of the most powerful monitors in their category - these monitors deliver an open, clear, and less fatiguing listening experience.

Have it your way.

You can customize the R80 in several ways. It's available with black or blue faceplates to fit your studio decor. With balanced XLR, balanced 1/4" TRS, and unbalanced RCA line-level inputs, its easy to feed audio to your R80 monitors from a mixer, an interface, a media player, or almost any other line-level source. And R series monitors offer user-adjustable contour features for optimising the monitors for your mixing space. This enables full integration into any studio environment.

Accuracy defined.

The R80's AMT monitor design provides lifelike sonic reproduction that will allow you to hear the room in your recordings. Its transparent sound and responsive transient reproduction makes it an ideal solution for anyone who is mixing high-resolution audio. Hear the R80 at your favourite PreSonus dealer.
