Summary: Having decided to upgrade the Home Theater System I did a lot of product research. Compared Definitive Technology products against several of their competitors and selected this center channel and their Bipolar floor standing speakers. Very happy with the sound and quality for the price.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I bought 4 PM 1000's, a PC 2000, and a SC 4000 to upgrade from an Onkyo box theater system. I was a little hesitant to spend the money but I am glad I did, there is no comparison this is the best speaker set up I have ever owned. Before I purchased I contacted both Def Tech and Crutchfield with a few questions I had and the customer service I received was excellent.
Pros: Crisp, clear, warm sound. Even being pushed hard they maintain great quality sound. Great value (even though I thought the cost was a little much, after setup it was without a doubt worth every penny) Customer Service from Def Tech and Crutchfield, 10 out of 10.
Summary: Since the center speaker is the most important in the system, I chose the most speaker I could get for the money. The 2000 series is as close to perfect as I could hoped for. It's frequency range is amazing. I still haven't chosen up my subwoofers, but the 2000's lows, driven by a 90 watt Yamaha receiver, are quite impressive, that I'll be able to take my time purchasing subs. Everything about this small wonder is impressive. I very highly recommend it.
Summary: I say amazing because this rather small piece of electronics does so much for its size. I've tried many different brands of center channel speakers, but returners them all for lack of prescience and clarity. This cc speaker by Definitive Technology handles dialog with clarity, anchoring the voices to center of the screen. At the same time, I was able to effectively change the low frequency cross-over so I now gave can increase in bass.
Pros: Sound clarity; appearance; price (bought a scratch & dent, but found no marks)
Summary: It is very tough to find a quality center speaker that is relatively small. I chose this one mainly because of its combination of size and quality. I am mounting it on a fireplace mantle, below a tv. In my opinion it delivers very good sound as a center speaker and I am pleased with the purchase. Price was average. Delivered very quickly and packaged very well. Appreciate Crutchfield's web site.
