First off, thank you for taking the time to review these speakers. I have been on the verge of upgrading my studio monitors, and was just about to grab some Presonus Sceptre series when I saw these new R-series. I'm still very much on the fence between the two, and there is nowhere less than 100 miles away to hear them in person. I'm hoping more reviews and opinions will start popping up, but in the meantime could you compare the two? Thanks!

Hey Michael--I haven't had any hands-on experience with the Sceptres, but will reach out to my PreSonus contact to get some more info on the differences between the two product lines.

Ok great, I look forward to it! Thank you!

OK, I heard back from Steve Oppenheimer from PreSonus. Here's what he said:
The key thing here is that the speakers use entirely different technologies. We now have four lines, each with a different technology.

I have the R65 for a couple of days now. They are stunning! However, there's a minor thing tha bugs me. When turned them on there's a small but audible hiss/hum. I've tried to get the gain knob all down or completely unplug the audio cable but nothing changed. I even tried to use another power socket. I do wonder if that's the case with the R80s as well.

I never noticed such an issue with the R80s. Possibly it's a defect in the pair you have?

Thanks for the quick reply
Im reading on various sources that some hiss is normal in most active monitors, but i guess is shouldnt be audible.
Sorry for repeating myself, but do your R80 are completely dead silent when they are turned on, without any music playing?
Im guessing that the R80 have even a stronger amp, which, in theory, might had a greater hiss
im not sure if i need to get myself used to it, and just turn them off when im not listening,
or there's something wrong with them
P.S sorry im not sure if hiss or hum is the right word to describe it. eitherway, is just a soft white noise, nothing buzzy or qurky

If I put my ear right up to the woofer on the R80s, I do hear kind of a lower-midrange rumbly sound, but it's very quiet.
