Summary: Purchased with a Yamaha RX-A1040. We are still in the break-in period discussed in the manual, but right out of the box the ProCinema 800 system was significant improvement over the sound bar with sub-woofer that I had been using.
Pros: Surprisingly heavy for the small size, but that is a plus since it damps out case distortion. Easy setup.
Summary: Wonderful speakers with big sound. Liked them so much that I bought 2 of the matching bookshelf speakers. I also have to say that the support guys at Crutchfield were a great help in deciding to buy these. They were very knowledgable and did not try to sell me anything I did not want or need.
Summary: Great sound for the size of speakers. I have moved the speakers several times and the Audyssey calibration has managed to make the "sweet spot" better each time. While watching our flat screen TV, my wife and I always complained of not hearing conversations, now it is a delight to watch movies on...
Pros: Wonderful sound. Small size.
Cons: Wiring to the Surround Sound Speakers required so some planning and trips to the hardware store since we have a very unique living room.
Summary: Just gave this to my husband for his birthday - yesterday. He set everything up right away. He is in love. He has been working to tune them to his liking. Heavy speakers, that seem like they will last. They sound great; even to someone like me that has "box wine" taste in audio.
Summary: I upgraded from a Polk audio Pro system to the Pro cinema 800 speaker system. The difference was amazing! The self calibrating balance system using a microphone where you sit works very well. The surround effect is awesome. The sub woofer will shake your house.
Pros: Excellent compact surround speakers with passive radiators. Superb sub woofer. Great sound all around!
Summary: This is a good surround set up. Certainly better than my prior cheap HTIB, though I'm not blown away by these speakers (though to be fair they have not fully broken in yet). The sub really makes the system, it adds a lot of depth to the sound at any level; the center channel and surround speakers...
Summary: Very clear full sound. I read a lot of reviews and went to magnolia at BB to listen to a variety of speakers. I wanted to go with Bowers and Wilkins but decided on Def Tech 800 series because of the size and sound quality. I was looking to fit speakers into my existing entertainment center.
