Summary: I started out with the intentions of buying a Sale $350 Yamaha HT in a box. But before I checked out, I listened to these in the BB Magnolia room. Specifically, 4 of these, the Pro 1000 Center and the Pro 800 Sub. What I ended up with was two of these, two Pro Monitor 800's, a Pro 1000 Center and a Pro 1000 Sub, powered by a Dennon AVR X-2000 receiver. Price wise, it's a mixed bag depending on your angle.
Summary: Bought these based solely on amazon's reviews and configuration of size and intended placement. They are a high wall placement near the corners of the room(not the best). They didn't sound very good to start, but given about 100 hours of break in time they settled in just fine and with the addition of the sub woofer deliver very pleasing music. Some things require time, these speakers are one of them.
Summary: I agree with other reviews here - the sound is good for the price range and the speakers appear well made. After adjusting my AVR system and giving them to to break in, the sound is very pleasing for music, speech and movies. The speakers have solved a problem with clarity of speech with 5.1 movie sound and look good in the restricted space we had available.
Summary: beautiful sounds, clear and crisp. definitely needs support on the low end, but can't hold that against this sized speaker. pushed by yamaha a1010 and a pair of definitive tech 8040 surrounds, backed by an old polk sub. the sounds is amazing. i've never been one to become a "brand" fan, but definitive technology is right there. i'm impressed with every product of their's i've come across.
Summary: I must start by saying that I'm somewhat jaded as these Def Techs are replacing a full size set of Infinity Delta 40s towers and there is no comparison to a full size speaker set up. But... when space is a consideration these do a good job. They have more presence than any of the Mirage Nanosats. The Martin Logan Motion 4s sounded a bit harsh on the mid to high end. The B&W M-1s did not have banana clip hook ups.
Summary: I purchased these speakers for use with my computer and not for surround sound.. I hate to say it but these speakers are terrible and I knew they would be without a sub, so I use a sub and now there pretty good. My computer is powered by a H/K receiver of 80 watts rms and a Fiio E7 dac. The music is Apple lossless files. I probably would buy these again, they look great and are very well built.but if you are not going to use a sub keep looking.
