Presonus Eris E3.5

Hello everyone, has anyone tested these monitors ? I'm looking for something compact for my travels, what do you think? Thanks

    I think they are really nice monitors - certainly they are constrained by their size, but I would put them in the same league as the better known JBL LSR 305.
     
    For reference, I use four different monitor pairs:
    1) JBL LSR 305 - they have a sound, lots of people like that sound, which makes it "audibly portable". If these were the only monitors I had I'd add a sub-woofer.
    2) Presonus Sceptre 6 - the most recent addition to the pile, and I really like them a lot. They are a co-axial design, which is my preference because they provide a more stable and defined stereo image, and they are little less prone to suffering from room problems (to a point). I'm considering adding a sub-woofer because they don't go quite low enough for media production work.
    3) Urei 809 - my dinosaurs, I've had them since the 1980s, and I know them well. They have a very "rock and roll" attitude, and they don't need to stinkin sub-woofer.
    4) TOA RS-21 "cubes" - my version of the infamous Auratone cube, mostly because I got a good deal on them. They work nicely as a sanity check.
     
    If I did not have the LSR 305s I'd probably have the Eris.

    At 3x the price IK's iLoud Micro monitors seem to have impressive reviews.

    Actually, the iLoud Micros are $300 for the pair vs $129 per a single JBL LSR305 (Making them about a $40 difference for two).
     
    At least, that's their current prices at Sweetwater, in the U.S.

    SONAR Platinum, Win 8.1 Pro, i7 2600K@4.2Ghz, Asus P8Z68 Deluxe, 16GB Crucial DDR3, GeForce GT 730, Samsung 32" and Dell 24" Monitors, Steinberg MR816X, Focusrite VRM Box, Kawai MP11 Piano, Event ALP Monitors, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro, Too Many Plugins, My lucky hat.
