Definitively Technology Studio Monitor 65
16 September 2015
Summary: These speakers are absolutely incredible in every way. The built quality and the sound quality of these puppies are to die for. Beautiful to look at and a pleasure to spend time with. Crisp clear highs, amazing mids, and mind blowing lows.
Pros: Crisp clear sounds, amazing built quality, beautiful to look at and a fair price.
Summary: For the price range speakers is a awesome. Clean crisp sound deep base. Even if you like techno or hi hop you dont realy need a sub.
On my onkyo rz900 when i put in audiophile mode and only two front speakers wofking the floor is rumbling from a base.
Summary: The best bookshelf speakers I have ever owned. I am using them through an expensive early 1960's tube system, and the clarify and range are amazing. My "old" speakers are now my rear surrounds.
Summary: We have been using Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 65 Speakers as our Front L/R speakers for well over a year. We have all Definitive technology Speakers in our 7.1 system. Including a SuberCube 4000 Subwoofer and an SC8060 Center. Definitive Technology creates a marvelous speaker!!
Summary: The Sm65 is a very high quality speaker that is solid and well built. Friends and family are impressed by the sheer Volume the guys an handle. The bass is very full and will satisfy many without the addition of a sub.
Pros: Soundstage and depth. Quality build (even though they are built in China).
Cons: None so far. They are a bit deep but that is not an issue for me.
Summary: Clean sound. Great highs and mid range. I have them connected to my TV with a NAD 356 amp and the clarity of sound is awesome. My ears are 70 years old so I needed some help and got that from these speakers.
Pros: Clean, Crisp, Good Highs and Mid Range
Cons: Not as much base as I wanted but really didn't expect it from 5 1/4" woofers. I will probably add a Sub-Woofer and that will completely make this system awesome!
Summary: Clear sound. Sound enclosed and needed more break in time.
Pros: Clean sound and solid construction. When compared to McIntosh, it sounded harsh and sound is not open. Perhaps the wires and the speakers needed more break in before one can really judge the sound quality.
Summary: Needed a "shorter" center channel speaker to fit between the top of the fireplace mantle and the bottom of my wall mounted Sony TV, and the Mythos 7 fit that bill. I actually took advantage of Crutchfield's 60-day return policy to return a MartinLogan Motion 8 because of it's height - even though I...
Pros: "short" height
Cons: Gives up a bit of bass - but I feel this is made up by the side bookshelf speakers.
Summary: I have been putting off upgrading my front speakers for 20 years. I have a pair of 89 model Advent Legacy II's that have been living in a 5.1 world. I bought those Advents(before home theater) because of the bass and that's why I couldn't let them go!! The Def Tech's are killing it.
Pros: Size and clarity
Cons: If you like to listen to concert DVD's as loud as the concert was you can bottom out the drivers. But I mean LOUD!! Don't let this con scare you!!
