Summary: I have for a long time since first reading about them back in the 90's in Stereo Review magazines. Reading nothing but good reviews on their products I hoped for a long time that someday I might be the proud owner of Definitive Technology (Def Tech for short) someday. Over 20 years later I finally had a one-in-a-lifetime chance of owning a pair of their smallest of their StudioMonitor series, the 350, at a bargain-bin price, though discontinued.
I decided to go with these over the ProMonitor 1000s and I am very happy I did
13 September 2014
Summary: Arrived just as advertised, new and ready to play! I decided to go with these over the ProMonitor 1000s and I am very happy I did! Paired with a Topping TP22 for near field use and I have too much power to spare.
Summary: I used these speakers for about 6 months before boxing them up and putting them in storage. Recently I gave them another try and they really don't sound as good as many of the reviews will have you believe. The highs are very harsh, no matter what type of music is played, and after a while they become very fatiguing to the ear. The mid range sounds unnatural and almost as if the singer is behind a piece of cardboard.
Summary: I'm not a high end audiophile and don't require my speaker wires to by hand wound in gold by a Japanese monk on a mountain top, but I do have a moderately nice setup in my basement that needed some quality speakers. These are great on their own for the average music enthusiast on a budget, or can add a quality layer to more comprehensive system with subs and tower speakers. They are compact, attractive and beautifully built.
