PreSonus Eris E5 2-Way Near-Field Studio Monitor : $135/speaker + S&H ? Duh! DROP should do more research about how competitive (or less competitive) they are in the real world.

Do you offer your services to your employer for less than your coworkers? No, you don’t. MD is like you then—they are not competing, they are in business to make money.

I was just about to chime in, in a similar vein! Massdrop is just doing what they need to in order to stay profitable. All any free market capitalist really desires. The beauty of living in a world as such, is that you can take your purchasing power wherever you feel like using it!

Why do people who frequent this site expect better pricing here than elsewhere? Particularly when 90% of the time, elsewhere is AMAZON?! Drop is a dinky little site with an extremely narrow reach—and buying power to match. They’re not going to beat prices on widely available, common items. That’s the point of the “points.”

That’s it—that’s the incentive; points.

They must have some test drivers out there already, would explain why my packages are coming in so late.

I don’t agree that pricing single speakers is a problem. Perhaps it is a problem for speakers in this price range, but it seems to make sense for higher end products. My ik ilouds were priced separately and I don’t feel ripped off in the slightest. But regardless, this isn’t really a deal. Same price as anywhere else and more wait time. Seems like it’s catered to people who don’t know how to use Google.

“Seems like it’s catered to people who don’t know how to use Google.” The very lifeblood of MD!

Only barbarians, savages, and republicans price their speakers SEPARATELY. No one needs ONE, and even fewer need THREE.

"The fact that you" appear to be a rather naive looking twenty-something "alludes to" your inability to sniff out such an obvious serving of baited sarcasm, despite the many clues on this page. Do you really imagine I give a damn wether MD sells them by the unit or by the dozen? Here's you fish.
search
PS: A while back, when I ordered my JBL monitor (to listen to all my true mono music), I was shocked to discover that MD had inadvertently put TWO of them in the box! Of course I kept the other one (rather than sending it back as I knew I really should have), but I swear I only listen to one of them at a time!:

That's a fact... Indisputably true. LOL! Unless you are 1 in 10 million that just really digs listening in mono. Right now 24 have purchased and probably 23 will be pissed when they only get a single monitor... because 2 are in the main advertised picture.

Another pointless "Drop".

I have a pair of these, along with a PreSonus T8 subwoofer, which I drive through a PreSonus Studio 24c (2x2). The speakers are great. They're crisp, clean, and worth every penny. The sweet spot is in the upper mid, and bass-heavy sound doesn't wash it out. If mine ran away from home, I'd buy another pair. Some things to be aware of:
  1. They are highly directional. Don't expect to just slap them on desk corners; you need stands of some sort to point them right at your ears. They're heavy but not grotesque, so some $25 Amazon floaty stands was sufficient for me.
  2. These are reference speakers. I assume they'd sound good for gaming, but it's not what they were built for, so you're probably going to hear more ambient/world noise than you want. They're best at fleshing out the full breadth of a mix, and sometimes I find that albums I've listened to a hundred times sound remastered through these guys. This is the actual mix, so you'll be disappointed if you prefer the Sony-style more-bass-is-always-gooder speakers.
  3. Just a reminder: You need to wire each speaker separately, so you need a DAC that splits. You can't drive these from a headphone amp.
  4. Just another reminder: Use balanced cables! Don't know what it is about these guys, but they are noisier than others over unbalanced cables.

Well, it took me a while but here's a picture. I moved the monitors onto some clamp stands to free up desk space. The audio interface is kindof hidden so I red-arrowed it.

Quite a spread! Looks like it sounds pretty nice ;- )

I really despise the scammy standard of single speaker pricing, it really should be against the law. The pair price should have to be as prominent as the single price, as virtually NO ONE buys single speakers.

That's because these aren't speakers, they're monitors. Educate yourself before sharing your ignorant opinion.

@Gooms is on a quest to educate the world about the myriad differences between speakers and monitors, and to spread the joy of monophonic music. If you bought a PAIR of monitors elsewhere you were duped, and sold SPEAKERS without your knowledge! Demand your money back (or at least return the useless additional unit). I applaud his efforts to save the world from SPEAKERS and Stereo music in general—the sound you don’t hear is my ONE hand clapping (and one FINGER waving for el Goomo!).

$125 for a pair seems like a great deal, considering they are $135 EACH on amazon. The speakers get a failing grade from Audio Science Review as reference speakers (not completely flat). But as desktop speakers they should sound great! Only reason I might not bite is because they might be a tad too big for my setup, I was hoping to get the Eris 4.5 instead and save some desk space..
shouldn’t be worried anyway. This is for a single speaker not a pair. They really baited me in with the first picture showing 2 units. Ends up being exactly the same price on amazon except you can probably get a few extra percent back on a few credit cards (amazon prime card gets 5%) and also probably way faster shipping if you have amazon prime.

The original deal they listed was for two speakers, hence why they pulled it. It's back up now with the corrected price/listing of a single monitor for $135. Yeah, exact same as Amazon. Not much of a drop.
