Audio engineers, producers, and musicians looking for a professional studio monitor with a wide soundstage and remarkable transient response will be thrilled with the single PreSonus R-Series R80, a powered studio monitor with a custom 6.8" Air Motion Transformer ribbon tweeter that responds to the subtlest waveforms and highest frequencies, allowing you to hear the "air" and a greater sense of space. The R80's transparent and accurate sound makes it great for use in both commercial and home recording studios as well as broadcast and postproduction environments.

The R80 provides a wide lateral dispersion and very limited vertical dispersion, which helps to reduce reflections from the ceiling and desktop that can cause phase coherence issues. The broad, even horizontal dispersion creates a wide sweet spot. The R80 utilizes a 8" custom-coated, woven Kevlar, low-frequency driver. This rigid cone maintains a more consistent dispersion pattern across its frequency response range. Bi-amped and driven by a 150W Class-D amplifier, this monitor delivers an open, clear, and less fatiguing listening experience.

A user-adjustable contour allows you to optimize the monitor for your mixing space and enables full integration into any studio environment. A four-position Acoustic Space switch helps to compensate for the boundary bass boost that occurs when the monitor is placed near a wall, while a high-frequency driver level control helps to further mitigate room anomalies. An onboard high-pass filter makes it easy to integrate a subwoofer into your monitor setup.

With three different types of audio inputs, it's easy to feed audio to your R-Series monitor from a mixer, an interface, a media player, or other line-level sources. The R80 provides balanced XLR, balanced 1/4" TRS, and unbalanced RCA line-level inputs.

Components and Construction

2-way active AMT design provides articulate high-frequency response and wide stereo imaging
Custom-designed, 6.8" AMT ribbon tweeter responds to the subtle waveforms and the high-frequencies
8" Kevlar LF driver provides transparent mid- and low-frequency reproduction
Balanced XLR, 1/4" TRS, and an unbalanced RCA inputs provide flexibility

User Controls

Acoustic Space settings (Linear, -1.5, -3, -6 dB) compensate for room placement
