Great speakers for the size and price!

Summary: Great speakers for the price. I have a home theater set up with 2 Polk Audio RTi8's up front along with 2 Polk Audio PSW202 subwoofers and a Polk Audio CS2 center channel. The weakest link in my setup was my Infinity surround sound speakers. I replaced them with these StudioMonitor 350 speakers and it made an immediate difference. Now that they are broken in they are downright amazing for their small size and sound much better than the larger Infinity speakers.
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

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.
