Presonus believes that the chances are that if you're looking at Sceptre monitors, you've already got a pair of monitors and are looking to upgrade which they think is cool.Here's the rest of what they think, in their own words...
While we've kept the price as reasonable as possible, it's no secret that the Sceptres are completely pro--even the pros think so. And, while we're flattered that you've considered the Sceptres, we would encourage you to refrain from hastily tossing your old, mediocre monitors on Craigslist. Why? Because even with the Sceptres, having multiple monitoring options allows you to check out how your mixes will sound on less-than-ideal setups.
Enter Monitor Station. It would be a total pain in the ear to have to re-wire your studio just to A/B your mix on a couple pairs of speakers, so let the Monitor Station take over. And until March 31, 2014, you will get a Monitor Station for FREE if you buy a pair of Sceptres. That's a whopping $299 value!
The Monitor Station allows you to connect up to three pairs of monitors, so you can get an idea of what your mixes sound like on your shiny new Sceptres, average speakers, crappy computer speakers, or whatever else you would like to plug to it. Furthermore, you can mix with your producer buddies in private with four LOUD headphone Outs, and a talkback mic allows you to politely request that the drummer stop beating the devil out of your Blue Mics Kiwi that you probably shouldn't have let him use on the snare. Lastly, you can sum your mixes to mono at the touch of a button to check for phase problems. Oh, and there's a great big volume knob.
Getting in with the new doesn't mean you have to get out with the old. With this package deal, you will make dramatic improvements to your monitoring with a single purchase.
