Excellent balance, clarity and a great stereo image!
Cristone, 05.07.2020
The sound surpassed any expectations I was having, the price is a steal and I am confident on the honest sound you get from these. If your mixes still have issues, rest assured it is not because of these monitors.
I was looking into buying some proper studio monitors in the 1000$ a pair range after owning some entry studio monitors such as rokit6 g3 and Adam F7. My first choice was to get a pair of Dynaudios lyd7 or Adam a7x's . I got the chance to listen at both monitors and was inclined towards the Adams. After getting used to ribbon tweeters it is pretty difficult to go back at the traditional dome ones. Looking into the discounted monitors I found the Presonus R65's. The price seemed very good but I was sceptical if they would be on the same level. Reading the review of the Presonus R65 on my go to site (audiofanzine) convinced me to give them a try.
After using them for 2 weeks I can confirm they are on par with the A7x's (the highs are just as good and the lows seem more balanced even though slightly less boosted). Excellent monitors overall, phenomenal transient response and a transparent sound.

Pros:
Very balanced frequency response
No audible cabinet resonance
Phenomenal highs
Tight low end and balanced mids
Good build and the choice of 2 colors front plate

Cons:
Slight hissing that is audible within 1 meter distance
The back of the monitors gets slightly warmer than normal

Price vs quality is spot on
chiefthomson, 12.07.2020
What you get for the money is an amazing monitor, that is well balanced, doesn't give you fatigue, has a good low end and the built quality is quite good. The features are only 4/5 because the adjustments can only be dialled in in pre-defined increments/decrements. Overall, coming from a Genelec monitor, I'm more than pleased and would go for it again, also given that I mostly produce electronic music.
