Break in time necessary!!

izzycrab54, Ebay

  • Summary: I have my new Def Tech SM55,s connected to a Pioneer Elite 110w/channel receiver and a Martin Logan 500 subwoofer. These speakers sound just O.K. fresh out of the box. After about 20 hours of play time the sound becomes more and more detailed, especially in the mid base frequency range.

  • Summary: Overwhelmed! Utterly . The amazed how detailed these speakers deliver my jazz CD's Looking forward to hearing them all over again. Movies are so much more detailed. The best part was receiving them the next day two days prior to Father's Day. Happy Fathers Day to me.

DT SM55

Doug, Crutchfield
5 April 2014
  • Summary: Running a Yamaha Aventage 1020, with a SVS PB1000 sub, DT PC 1000. Replacing Bose 901s, 301s, and a set of DT450s. Intially disapointed by the 55s. They are a lot lighter then the 450s, probably in the magnets. The 55s do not seem to be as warm and present as the 450s.
  • Pros: Looks, Solid build, BiAmping is a go to, perfect timbre match with DT Pro Monitor 1000 series surronds and center, movies are incrediable with this set up. They blend very well to perfectly with the SVS turned down and the Yamaha crossover set to 100. Got to give Yamaha some credit to awesome rec...
  • Cons: Not sure there are any. Must be patient and willing to tweak there location. Remember trying laying them on their sides with the radiator either facing in or out depending on your room and preferences.

Great Monitor Speaker

Walt B., Crutchfield
5 April 2014
  • Summary: My Def Tech SM 55's are not fully broken in yet but they are already sounding fantastic. I upgraded from the SM45's which are terrific speakers in their own right, but these are a definite step up.
  • Pros: Just about everything.
  • Cons: Nothing at this price point.

A Good Speaker

Andy, Crutchfield
5 April 2014
  • Summary: This is a decent speaker, but when I compared to my older JBL T100 speakers it was no contest. The older JBs had all the highs etc. of this speaker, but way more 'body'. I carefully AB'd these 55s with the JBLs they just did not make the cut, even with my sub.
  • Pros: Size evidently still matters leaving these speaker woefully thin.
  • Cons: Great size and possibly sound for much smaller room.

Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 55

Judge Tom, Crutchfield

  • Summary: This is an outstanding product . I replaced two 30+ year old Infinity 48" high tower speakers each with double 10" push pull woofers with these mini monitors, in a 12 by 20 ft room with openings to a dining area and a hallway, and did not expect too much.
  • Pros: Outstanding quality and value for money.
  • Cons: none

SM 55

Antonio, Crutchfield
5 April 2014
  • Summary: Rediscovering my very well-recorded and extremely eclectic music collection on my new small(a bit less than 12' x 9') listening room. Paired to a quite nice turntable(on a solid wall mount), a beefy (150w/ch @ 8 ohms) made in Japan receiver and two very good cd players.
  • Pros: Premium floor-standing speaker sound for the size and price of merely good bookshelf's. (If that is not for you a breakthrough, my friend, consider sitting down and wait for cold fusion or world peace.)
  • Cons: Kind of ugly without grilles, but the magic seems unaffected by them, they seem acoustically transparent. Anyway got the SM 55's for function, not form.The black finish on dimmed light makes them to visually disappear, which is good. Anyway I do not go out with them, but with my wife. Now, she no...
