Definitive Quality

Max Power, Crutchfield
25 September 2012
  • Summary: Very well made. It looks & feels like a quality product. Sound quality is quite good. And the fact that it's no thicker than my TV is just great.
  • Pros: Overall size and thinness of the speaker.
  • Cons: Haven't seen any yet.

Great sound bar except for one design flaw.

Art, Crutchfield
25 September 2012
  • Summary: This sound bar exudes quality. The audio is great, it's truly beautiful, and solidly constructed. I disagree with another reviewer about the logo. IMO, it's fine; not obtrusive at all. But it has a big design flaw: the connector. There is plenty of room on the back for proper connectors.

Speaker looks and sounds fantastic - difficult to mount

Mike, Crutchfield
15 June 2012
  • Summary: The speaker is mounted on the wall directly below my 48" flat panel television. It sounds great with my Denon AVR-X2000 receiver and Definitive ProSub 800 (my living room is quite large). We can actually hear the dialogue in movies/shows.
  • Pros: Great appearance, good sound for any speaker (much less one of this size), various options for mounting and/or standing up
  • Cons: Price, lack of mounting screws, difficulty routing speaker wire above the speaker when wall-mounted

Excellent product

JayG, Crutchfield
13 February 2012
  • Summary: I recently purchased this item along with the Def Tech Mythos 20BP surrounds. I also have a Def Tech Supercube 2000 Sub and a Denon AVR 1912 Reveiver. I have a non-ideal set up as my couch is against the back wall.
  • Pros: Great sound in an attractive looking speaker.
  • Cons: None

Beautiful, but some minor annoyances

ggr, Crutchfield
1 February 2012
  • Summary: It's gorgeous, obviously, and the pictures don't actually do it justice. It is NOT a replacement for properly-configured floorstanders, bookshelves or rotating-baffle in-walls. But it IS a fantastic replacement for the tiny, tinny speakers that are probably insider your beautiful flat panel.
  • Pros: Beautiful, except for the label. Nice speaker jack design. Solid, well-built. Sounds great, exactly as should be expected of something this shape and size.
  • Cons: The front label is a horrible design aesthetic. Poor quality control (shipped wrong bracket in box).
