Presonus R80 V2 Powered Studio Reference Monitor - Single

Powered studio reference monitor with a 2-way active AMT tweeter design provides articulate high-frequency response, wide stereo imaging, and narrow vertical dispersion

MFR# R80 V2

Product Description

Clarity is king—and with the Presonus R80 V2 Powered Studio Reference Monitor, you’ll hear every single detail in your music: the gentle breath in every exhale, the subtle finger noise in a nylon-string classical guitar; the nuanced overtones of brass and woodwinds; and exquisite reverb tails that decay gracefully into the void. Not only will your mixes sound their absolute best on R80 V2, but you’ll also be able to hear trouble spots in your tracks with surgical clarity. If you’re mixing or mastering high-resolution audio, the R80 V2 will ensure that you’ll hear every detail captured in your recordings.

Air and transient response

Driven by a dedicated 65 watt Class A/B amp, the R80 V2’s custom-designed 6.8-square-inch Air Motion Transformer (AMT) excels at accurate reproduction of the highest of high frequencies—those responsible for a sense of air, space, and dimensionality. And the AMT’s astonishingly thin (< 0.01 mm) folded Kapton membrane allows the tweeter to move in the same instant as the voltage cycles that power it, providing nothing less than wave cycle-accurate transient reproduction.

Wide with pride

The unique AMT design also allows the R80 V2 to handle 8 to 13 times the projection area of more traditional tweeter designs, while the R80 V2’s unique housing constrains this projection area to the horizontal axis. The result is a very wide sweet spot with focused vertical dispersion, —minimizing reflections off of your desk, ceiling, and floor that could otherwise introduce problematic phase and coherence issues. And because it’s less subject to room-anomaly interference, the R80 V2 studio monitor reacts predictably and sounds consistent, even if moved to different listening environments.

The lowdown on the down-low

R80 V2’s woofer is eight inches of rigid, custom-woven composite that offers consistent dispersion across its frequency range for the flattest response PreSonus could design. A dedicated 75 watt Class A/B amplifier provides ample headroom and impressive distortion-free, non-fatiguing performance—even at higher volumes.

The new versatility

Improving the respected R-series classics wasn’t easy, but PreSonus found a way: by giving you more control than was available on the original R80. The updated R80 V2 features analog acoustic tuning controls that will be familiar to users of the celebrated Eris line—you get Low Cut, Mid Frequency, and High Frequency controls, as well as a three-way Acoustic Space switch that allow you to easily compensate for the sonic consequences of speaker placement against a wall or in a corner. They also added a new Class A/B amplifier to provide an even warmer and smoother overall frequency response.

Studio monitor connections

Of course, you also get classic PreSonus monitor connectivity, as R80 V2 provides balanced XLR, balanced ¼-inch TRS, and unbalanced RCA line-level inputs, so you can hook them up to an audio interface, mixer, monitor controller, or almost any other line-level source. If you’d like to add Bluetooth connectivity, check out the MicroStation BT.

Accuracy defined

The R80 V2 studio monitor provides lifelike audio reproduction that will allow you to hear the room in your recordings. Its transparent sound and responsive transient reproduction makes it an ideal solution for anyone who is mixing high-resolution audio. The exact same AMT technology that provides the R80 V2’s natural-sounding, honest playback also ensures that potential trouble spots in your mixes won’t slip past your critical ear.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
