Presonus Eris E4.5 2-Way Powered Studio Monitors-sale-01

Update (6/26 11:45am): Amazon has now dropped the price even further on PreSonus monitors to $149.99 shipped (the lowest we can find).

Today, Amazon is offering the PreSonus Eris E4.5 2-Way Powered Studio Monitors (pair) for $162.13 shipped. These speakers still go for the $200 they were originally listed at from most retailers including Guitar Center, bringing you a savings of around $38. While you won’t be able to take them with you as easily as these discounted UE Mini Booms, it is sometimes nice to have a solid set of desktop speakers for your home or office setup. They are rated 4.7/5 stars from over 50 Amazon customers.
