Summary: Bought one of these to compliment my BP-8040 tower speakers and the difference was fantastic. The clarity, particularly voice, was highly significant. Previously hard to follow BBC series and movies are now crystal clear.
Awesome work-horse of a center channel with amazing sound

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.
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.
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.
The sound performance was excellent. Main circuit board failed in summer of 2014

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.
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.
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.
