Fantastic center channel speaker!
18 February 2015
Summary: Beautiful sounding center channel speaker with a wide dispersion that ensures crystal clear sound at virtually any listening position. Dial in the sub just right and you'll be amazed by the clarity of the mids, highs and lows (you can make it RUMBLE the floorboards if you wish).
Summary: I usually don't post comments about products. But this baby is amazing! I highly recommend the 8080 series. I also have the BP-8080ST towers and SR-8080BP surround sound speakers. Definitive Technology advertises that you don't need a stand-alone subwoofer with their 8080 tower.
Summary: WOW, no other center channel speaker compares. Makes your sound system incredible!! I compared the 8040 to 8080 and the bass was night and day, makes movies life like. Having 300 watt sub in center channel is magic for the sound system.
Summary: The Def Tech CS-8080HD is very disappointing for as much as it costs and the reviews I read. First the sub-woofer has to be set low or the speaker vibrates on the shelf it is sitting on. If set to a higher volume a loud passage such as an explosion in a movie the speaker distorts.
Pros: Generally good sound overall
Cons: Overpriced, and would not recommend a center channel with a built in sub-woofer, its overkill.
Summary: Purchased this with 8080 fronts and surrounds. Not only is dialog clear, but I now hear substantial bass information coming from center. This is placed on a low profile tempered glass entertainment center.
