... online review of speakers says "These speakers sound as good as speakers that cost twice as much
28 July 2015
Summary: Nearly every online review of speakers says "These speakers sound as good as speakers that cost twice as much!" or something like that. The Def Tech SM45s may be the (only?) speakers where that's actually true. I spent about two months listening to bookshelf speakers at local music stores.

Summary: These tiny (and yes, they are pretty small) really pack a wallop that far exceeds what you might expect for a speaker of its size and price. They are not going to outperform your multi-thousand dollar speakers, but at $200 each, they are surprisingly good.

Summary: Sounds amazing i could not believe my ears when i plugged in these speakers. The sound that these speakers produce is clean and well balance a lot of bass. I also have the SM 65 I kind of like the sound of SM 45 better
Summary: Amazing Speakers! Just amazing. Heard them next to a B&M speakers before buying them and thought they sounded far better. So far just have these and a 12 inch sub for my HTS and its just incredible for movies and even more amazing for music.
Summary: Many sound systems focus on bass but I prefer accurate sound reproduction. I want to hear what the artist/producer INTENDED it to sound like (not what some speaker company threw together). If I wanted more bass I can just modify the EQ settings on my system.
Summary: One of the three of us is a professional musician, another is a very active amateur. We make and hear a great deal of live music, and these speakers sound very accurate to all of us. Even without a sub-woofer, they deliver a full bass sound.
