Great upgrade, clear and full sound!

Summary: Fantastic upgrade from my Mythos 3 center. The Dialogue is now clear and full, easy to understand movies without boosting the center channel with my receiver. I'm a big proponent of Def Tech and this speaker is top notch! A bit larger than my old center but I will take that trade-off any day.
Summary: Well before getting this center speaker I purchased The Infinity PC251 and the sound was off. The sound quality didn't match my Front & Surround Definitive speakers. It sounds like a dream,it's so seamless and beautiful sound from all these Definitive Speakers.
Pros: Bass Radiator adds great effect & boom if you live in a smaller place & don't want a subwoofer. Very Happy with my Definitive speaker system,very time I hear it I enjoy it even more.
Summary: The CS-8040HD is an outstanding sounding center channel speaker with exceptional clarity and great bass response for a non-powered center channel. I did not think it was necessary to have a powered woofer in the center channel and I am not disappointed, isn't that what your BP-8060ST's or separate...
Pros: Exceptional clarity on vocals for movies and music. Great value for the price
Summary: I was so impressed with the sound quality of the CS-8040HD, that I ended up going with BP-8040ST and the SR-8040BP as well. The entire setup was well beyond my budget; however, sound this good apparently adds some flexibility to one's budget.
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 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.
... compliment my BP-8040 tower speakers and the difference was fantastic. The clarity

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.
