Wow... Just WOW

Summary: I can't properly begin to say how fantastic these speakers are. In addition to sounding better than any speaker I've ever heard, they look fantastic as well. I love that they're wall mountable without having to purchase any additional equipment. Put them up on the wall and they look gorgeous. If you've got a large or even a small room that you want to fill with amazing sound, look no further. Don't let their diminutive size fool you.
One review for the whole 5.1 Definitive Tech 6 speaker system

Summary: Amazon ran a special where you get two XTR-20BP surround speakers when you buy the three XTR-50 (Front L-R-C) and SC4000 Sub. I have been through a hundred speakers over the last 40 years or so and this Definitive system is right up there with the best speakers, even systems costing several hundred dollars more. I use an Onkyo TX-NR709 to drive the 6 speakers and at any volume this system stays balanced and clean from 20 to 20K Hz.
Summary: The images online don't do these speakers justice. It starts with the packaging...all of the speakers are tightly packed for extra protection when shipping. The speakers themselves are covered in a soft cloth within a plastic bag inside the hardened styrofoam, while all of the components (wire connector, stands, wall bracket) are stored in their own areas. Despite its light weight, the speakers feel 'substantial', and look wonderful with or without the grill.
Summary: I really like these speakers. They have very nice sound. I know sound is the most important thing, but they also look good and slim structure makes it perfect for smaller rooms. Otherwise, why not buy a standing speaker. You can buy a much better standing speaker at this price range, but these are perfect if you have space limitations. Overall excellent quality and sound.
