PreSonus R80 8-inch AMT Studio Monitors (PAIR)


The PreSonus R80 is an active studio reference monitor. that have 8 inch Kevlar low frequency drivers, and feature AMT technology - Air Motion Transformer ribbon tweeters. By design, they make the R80's exceptionally responsive to transients. Made from intricately thin Kapton, the R80’s have an incredibly accurate and spacious high-frequency response, making them ideal for critical listening in studios and broadcast facilities. If you don't like the blue face plate you can always swap the faceplate with a neutral black one that comes in the boxes when you buy these studio monitors.



Components and construction
