    New Top-Brand Gear From An Authorized US Dealer

    You get top-brand gear, new from the factory, from an authorized US dealer. Our products are shipped from the vendor to our warehouse, and then from the warehouse to you. There is no detour through a retail store, where the boxes are opened, the products put on display, and then sold as leftovers. When you shop online, make sure you are comparing new gear from authorized US dealers. 

    Special Opportunities: When It's Not New, We Tell You

    We occasionally have opportunities to buy B-stock merchandise to offer at special discounts. We also sometimes get returns in less than perfect condition. Sometimes we will offer these products to you - but we always identify it clearly as such using the classifications below. So unless it says otherwise, it's new from the factory.

    Important Guarantee: Your 100% Satisfaction

    Regardless of the condition described on our site, what you should remember is that if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you may return it (though exceptions apply for some products). Of course, if you know you will only be happy if a product is 100% cosmetically perfect, then you shouldn't order B-Stock or Blemished merchandise - it's just not a good gamble. And if you will only be happy if a product has never been touched by another human, well then the Resealed products aren't a good choice for you. But if you are looking for even more impressive values than our already-low prices, then these options will be very attractive when available.

    These are our best descriptions of the quality and condition of this merchandise. Because of the highly efficient, automated nature of our warehouse, and the high volume of products we stock and ship, there is no way for us to provide any additional detail on the condition of any individual item. Just remember our 100% satisfaction guarantee!

These products are still covered by our 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so they're a great deal! 

    B-Stock

    A B-stock product is purchased directly from its manufacturer, who may have refurbished the product or used it for training and demonstration purposes.

These products are still covered by our 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so they're a great deal! 


    *Warranty coverage for non-new gear varies by manufacturer. To see if the non-new product you’re interested in has warranty coverage, click the "What is Blemished/Warehouse Resealed/etc." text link near the price on the product page.

    Product Description


    The first time you hear the PreSonus Sceptre S8 CoActual 2-way studio monitor, you'll discover fine nuances of your music that can't be reproduced by conventional designs. The Sceptre's panoramic soundstage, fine detail, and stunning dynamics will astonish you. This exceptional performance is the result of an advanced coaxial design that works integrally with a 32-bit processor running Fulcrum Acoustic's TQ Temporal Equalization Technology.

    The Royal Sceptre

    The sceptre is the age-old symbol of royal authority. The Sceptre S8 studio monitor provides sound quality and control worthy of the highest levels of aristocracy -
    - but they're priced for the bourgeois project-studio owner.The system is biamplified: Each transducer is powered by a 90W RMS, Class D power amp with an internal heat sink. Each Sceptre has its own internal power supply with IEC connector and a power switch with on/off LED. To this package of custom transducers, powerful DSP running custom software, and first-rate power amplification, add a rich set of acoustic adjustments and full speaker protection, and you have an affordable close-field monitoring standard for project studios and commercial facilities.

    Coaxial Done Right with TQ

    Each Sceptre monitor contains a DSP chip that enables the use of Fulcrum Acoustic's TQ algorithms. The processor is used to manage horn reflection, linear time and amplitude anomalies correction, performance contouring, and dynamic and excursion limiting. The result is coaxial speakers that perform far better than all but the most expensive studio monitors.No driver is perfect, nor can a driver be made perfect with hardware alone; there are always compromises in physical systems. To overcome these driver compromises, many speaker manufacturers apply DSP in the form of a combination of multiband EQs but the processing is more or less an afterthought -
    - it's not accounted for in the design of the transducer. This sorta works -
    - more or less. A few high-end loudspeaker companies have developed sophisticated solutions with active DSP that is co-designed with the speaker, but these are expensive solutions. So instead of taking the crude, old-skool approach, PreSonus partnered with Fulcrum Acoustic and licensed its high-end TQ Temporal Equalization, which, up until now, could only be found in very high-end speaker systems.

    You Wield the Sceptre

    In addition to making possible the Sceptre's coaxial design, the monitor's onboard DSP provides user-adjustable contour features for optimizing the monitors for your mixing space. This enables full integration into any studio environment. A four-position Acoustic Space switch controls a second-order shelving filter centered at 100 Hz, with four attenuation settings (no attenuation, -1.5 dB, -3 dB, and -6 dB) so that you can account for the boundary bass boost that occurs when the monitor is placed near a wall or corner. If you don't want to roll off those lows, set it to 0 dB.You also can adjust the Sceptre's overall sound and response using its performance controls. A sensitivity control that ranges from +4 dBu to -10 dBV helps you match the Sceptres to your mixer's outputs. The High-Frequency Driver Adjust switch adjusts the tweeter's overall level to linear (0 dB), +1 dB, -1.5 dB, or -4 dB. This lets you control the balance between the tweeter's output and that of the mid/low driver. The High Pass switch rolls off the low frequencies below the specified frequency (60, 80, or 100 Hz) at a slope of -24 dB/octave. This control is important if you are using a subwoofer in conjunction with the Sceptre S8 monitor; in that case, set it to the same frequency as the crossover to the subwoofer. If you're not using a subwoofer, you simply set the control to Flat.

    Features:

    - CoActual technology combines DSP time-correction and point-source design for symmetrical soundstage and micro-definition imaging
    - Unique coaxial transducer integrates 8-inch midrange driver and 1-inch (25 mm), horn-loaded HF transducer with Coaxial Speaker Coherence Alignment
    - Powerful DSP provides critical Temporal Equalization with multiple FIR filters
    - Acoustic-tuning controls: HF Driver Adjust (0 dB, +1 dB, -1.5 dB, -4 dB), Acoustic Space settings (0 dB, -1.5 dB, -3 dB, -6 dB), High-pass filter (Off, 60 Hz, 80 Hz, and 100 Hz, -24 dB/octave slope), Sensitivity (+4 dBu to -10 dBV)
    - 180W RMS, Class D biamplification with internal heat sink
    - RF shielding, current-output limiting, and over-temperature protection
    - Balanced XLR and 1/4-inch TRS line-level inputs with A-taper level control
    - Amplifier 'soft start' feature eliminates popping on power-up
    - 102 dB maximum continuous SPL
    - Internal power supply with IEC connector
    - Power switch with on/off LED
