USA - PreSonus is now shipping its R65 V2 and R80 V2 active AMT studio monitors. The new monitor speakers feature more extensive control than the original R-series, incorporating the analogue Acoustic Tuning controls from PreSonus’ Eris line.
Included are Low Cutoff, Mid Frequency, and High Frequency controls, as well as a three-position Acoustic Space switch that allows you to compensate for the acoustic results of speaker placement against a wall or in a corner. An upgraded 140W (75W LF + 65W HF) Class A/B power amplifier provides ample headroom and even warmer, smoother overall frequency response for distortion-free, non-fatiguing performance, even at higher volumes.
As with the original R-series, the new R65 V2 and R80 V2 monitors feature a custom-designed, 6.8-square-inch Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter that responds to the subtlest waveforms and high frequencies, making them a suitable choice for hearing ultra-highs that add “air” and a sense of space and dimension. The AMT’s thin (< 0.01 mm) folded Kapton membrane provides wave-cycle-accurate transient reproduction, says Presonus.
The R80 V2 features an eight-inch, custom-woven, composite woofer that offers consistent low-end dispersion across its frequency range. The R65 V2 has a 6.5-inch woofer of the same design. The R80 V2’s overall frequency response is rated at 40 Hz to 22 kHz, while the R65 V2 delivers 45 Hz to 22 kHz.
