Should not be compared to Bose
Posted by: KCalB from: Kennesaw, Ga on
I have a 3.1 system; two of these speakers along with a ProMonitor 1000 center and a 12" Polk sub. These speakers produce amazing highs, but more surprisingly, they produce very good mids. Be warned though, do NOT place anything above them, or else you will lose the mid-bass response. I laugh when people say that they are superior to Bose systems. These speakers should not even be in the same store as Bose. The ONLY thing positive I can say about Bose is that they can produce a high DB level without too much distortion. Definitive also do this, but sound like they cost hundreds more. They are fairly non-directional, not as much so a Mirage, but if someone really wanted non-directional speakers, they would go with Mirage. IMO, Definitive speakers sound better then Mirage for SQ. But these speakers, they are a bargain for $145.00 a piece.

Great Little Speakers!
Posted by: HDnut from: Bristol, Ct on
Great small speakers! Have it paired with a ProCenter 1000. Very good blending. I was going to buy the ProMon1000,but the Def Tech web site recommends you pair the ProCenter 1000 with the 800's. These speakers are small, but the fill up my living room with great sound!
My space is "14'w x 18' d with and open kitchen/dining area. I also have vaulted ceilings. No problems! Because they are small, they don't distract from the TV.

Will only buy DefTechs from now!

I had a mirage nanosat 5.1 system prior to this 5.1 pro800 with a procenter 1000. OMG night and day! what a difference it made, my living room (15x20) came alive with these little monster, great buy, great products, excellent sound quality! Looking to upgrade to 7.1 soon with all DEFTECHS!

A little more than I had intended to spend to replace a blown Onkyo but worth it. Found the wall mounts to be pricey so I went to Home Depot and bought 1/2" wood screw on one end / bolt on the other (not sure what you call them but package of 2 = .98c). Put wood screw end into stud and screwed speaker on other end - works great if you don't care about swivvel feature.

Posted by: BP32068 from: Middleburg, Fl on
It took me forever to find this center chanel with months of looking and research. I didnt know anything about Definitive at all. HIghly recommend them on any speaker. Huge sound out of little speakers. Absolutely amazing.

Excellent multipurpose unit
Posted by: pickngrin from: tn on
Speakers tend to be a "matter of taste". Therefore, my first recommendation would be to listen to these in the Magnolia theatre section of the store.
I found these to be excellent for TV, music, and movies. These speakers accurately reproduce the sound without "coloring" it - not too much bass, not too much "hiss", but just excellent, accurate sound reproduction. (Don't get me wrong - these units produce rich deep and crisp sounds - it's just they seem "natural" instead of "processed".
If you're serious about sound, and are considering the 600's, you should give these a listen - they are well worth the extra $.

A STEAL AT $145!!
Posted by: StlBlues from: Rochester NY on
for basement "man cave" 3.1 setup, more for music and TV than movies, wanted to upgrade from old Infinitys that I had sitting in a closet for years, but not break the bank -- looked at and auditioned MANY brands/models under $200 -- these seemed to be among the best bang for the buck in side-by-side comparisons, so I tried them -- when hooked up to Denon 1610, first thought they were a bit tinny for the large listening area, and wasn't so sure I made the right choice -- but after several hours of breaking in, they opened up quite nicely -- the highs are incredibly clear, and paired with a Polk 110 subwoofer (set at ~100Hz), sound is awesome for the minor investment -- for listening to music, compares well with my MUCH more expensive denon/polk/velodyne system upstairs -- I've become a big fan of Def Tech

I have a HK 5.1 system in my living room and have always thought I was loosing my hearing because I had trouble understanding dialogue while watching certain Dolby surround sound rated movies even after balancing the system. I recently put a 7.1 surround system in another room and started with just a Definative center channel and the front channel speakers, That alone out performed my old system, after getting the remaining 4 speakers I was extremely pleased to find that it was not my hearing, these speakers are amazing for the price,

Small Speaker Big Sound
Posted by: BGP1984 from: Portland, OR on
I bought these as a self-birthday gift and this will be my first real sound system. I started only with a pair of ProMonitor 800s, they are amazing If your looking for a big movie sound. These speakers go great with any of the Pioneer Elite receivers (I chose the VSX-40 which is a 7.1 dual-zone receiver).
I will be buying the ProCenter 1000, another pair of ProMonitor 800s and one of the DefinitiveTechnology Sub-woofers, probably the ProSub 1000.

Nice Solid Speakers
Posted by: screasy from: Tacoma, WA on
I really like these speakers. They look nice on the wall and sound amazing. I got these on sale at BB and cant complain. They do what they are supposed to do and dont distort at high volumes. I have them waal mounted and they look amazing. I have them paired up with the Def Tech ProCenter 1000, Def Tech 10" ProSub 1000, a pair of Klipsch Icon WF-34 and a Onkyo TX-SR607. Everything sounds great.
