Awesome work-horse of a center channel with amazing sound

Slathered in Gravy, Amazon

  • Summary: Awesome work-horse of a center channel with amazing sound, superb volume, and beautiful appearance. You can spend more money on higher end equipment, but my ears are great and I can't imagine ANYTHING sounding better than this.

You'll love this speaker

Blargh, Amazon

  • Summary: I love this center channel speaker. It gives spectacular audio range, as good as any. But as I said in my review of the Definitive Tech BP-8060ST to get the best sound out of your speakers you will have to use good quality speaker cabling such as Audioquest. Otherwise you're looking through your eyeglasses completely smudged up with finger prints. You can see, sort of...mostly. But not clearly. Not properly.

Clear gorgeous baritone dialog. Ear candy.

  • Summary: I'm running this center with the BP-8060ST towers and Mythos Gem surrounds. I'm driving the setup with a Denon AVR-X4100W. I absolutely love the power, focus and sound that comes out of this center. I was previously using a Polk CSi A4 center; the Definitive is a massive step up. You will need a proper receiver to get the right sound out of the Definitive Speakers. I tried testing this center on a $400 Yamaha unit and got sub-par results (not bad but..

  • Summary: Ordered from amazon on January 6, 2011. The sound performance was excellent. Main circuit board failed in summer of 2014. Warranty was for 3 years on electronics. Repair cost estimate prohibitively expensive.

Great speakers - World class customer service!

Paul Martin, Jr., Amazon

  • Summary: I bought my first pair of Def Tech studio monitors over 10 years ago. This was the final piece in my 5.1 theater setup. After a decade of trying to incorporate other speaker brands (Panasonic, Bose, Polk) into the system, what an improvement finally having all Def Tech speakers has made. I procrastinated for years about spending this much on a center speaker and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Their customer service is great before and after the sale.

Perfect

Yo Avg Joe, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as part of a whole surround package - Definitive 8040 system. I have a old Sony V444ES powering this. The center speaker is bigger than I imagined but its sound is clear and a little bass comes from it as well. Listening to news and documentaries is a pleasure. Dialogue is movies is distinct - do you don't need it loud.
