About the Product
When you’re serious about creating music, you need studio monitors that will speak nothing but the truth. Eris®-series monitors deliver a smooth and accurate frequency response, powerful Class AB amplification with loads of headroom, and a suite of acoustic tuning controls to mitigate room anomalies.
The T7V is a two-way studio monitor designed for vertical use in a nearfield application. The T7V features a 7” woofer that provides bass extension down to 39 Hz, while the U-ART tweeter’s diaphragm provides pristine and extended high-frequency response up to 25 kHz – virtually unheard of in monitors in this price range.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
PreSonus Eris E8 8-inch, 2-way, High-Definition Active Studio Monitor
  • The speakers sound is strong, well balanced and puchy.
  • Great speakers... really compact, yet with a beautiful, balanced sound.
  • My first monitor speakers, and very, very pleased. Hooked up to my PC, and I can no listen to all my tunes without any distortion.
  • I dont have to move the main volume dial anymore then 30-40% they are very loud and clear with a good amount of bass Even with the room layout dial set to -4
  • After using the Eris 8s for a couple of months now, I have no regrets. Great sound, great frequency response, lots of volume to spare.
Adam Audio T7V 7" Nearfield Monitor Speaker
  • I love the tweeters! They are so much better that domes or horns.
  • T7V are a new, low-cost product line that brings their amazing ribbon tweeter tech to the masses.
  • The tweeters aren't fatiguing, and if you have a quiet room you can monitor at low volume and still clearly hear everything.
  • Now that I’ve adapted my hearing to the ribbon tweeters, I wouldn’t want to go back to listening to dome tweeters.
  • I've been involved with and set in on a lot of mixing sessions over the years so I've heard a lot of monitors, and these monitors sound great.

  • Build quality is excellent as far as I can tell.
  • Sound very clear. Material quality is very good

What customers say about "Audio"
PreSonus Eris E8 8-inch, 2-way, High-Definition Active Studio Monitor
  • Tonal balance is *really* nice for the size and price point; they're nearly as sweet as my much more expensive hifi speakers and amp downstairs.
  • Bass is pretty well controlled and tight, treble sparkly and detailed, and the mids clear and defined.
  • These speakers are amazing, how rich sound they have!
  • Can't believe the quality for the price. I wanted to have clarity and a flat, truthful sound. These give exactly that.
  • The sounds good in any frequency and the price is sensational.
Adam Audio T7V 7" Nearfield Monitor Speaker
  • Exceptional value on the monitors, sound ridiculous good.
  • The sound is very clear and punchy. Low end is tight and sub heavy, highs are crisp and smooth.
  • I bought a pair of these monitors as replacements for my KRK Rokit 8 Gen 1s. The difference in sound quality really is very impressive.
  • The mid-range detail is superb. Placement of sounds on the stereo sound stage is rock solid, with a clear phantom center.
  • The T7Vs sound accurate, controlled and extremely detailed, allowing you to hear absolutely everything in your mix.

What customers say about "Features"
PreSonus Eris E8 8-inch, 2-way, High-Definition Active Studio Monitor
  • The adjustments on the back make it easy to tweak for your particular circumstances
  • Most impressed is the bass hole on the front side instead of back, so that means no early reflections if you set them close to the wall.
  • Adjustments for sound delivery; to tune to your taste.
  • I like the various adjustability features, a lot. They are very clear, and reasonably transparent.
  • Very impressed with this speakers sound and diversity in settings and inputs for various needs.
Adam Audio T7V 7" Nearfield Monitor Speaker
  • The signature Adam tweeter gives you the distinctive 'silky' highs, and the woofer delivers tight and accurate bass.
  • When you are having different output, T7V has both balanced and unbalanced inputs.
  • Also controls for adjusting the overall level and the high and low frequency response are so useful when using small room.
  • I guess the cabs are built from very dense materials but I hear nothing from the cabinets themselves. Very tight sound.
  • In addition, don't forget to grab some TRS to XLR cables, because the only balance input these speakers have are XLRs.
