The unique design of the Sceptre® S8 Powered Studio Monitor from PreSonus delivers pure and honest sound reproduction that reveals subtle nuances in recordings that cannot be heard in other monitors. Sceptre-series studio monitors provide extensive user-adjustable contour features that let you optimize the monitors for your mixing space and enables you to fully integrate them into any studio environment. The result is panoramic imaging, finely detailed transient response, unmatched lifelike sonic reproduction, and stunning dynamics.

The phase relationships of individual harmonics are a critical part of the characteristic “sound” of an instrument or voice. When they are reproduced accurately, the result is sonic transparency, definition, and intelligibility. By maintaining the transient reproduction, even at high volumes, Sceptre S8 speakers minimize distortion and produce clean, clear, consistent audio at any SPL.
