Return to Definitive Technology ProCinema 800
Rating: High to Low
Rating: Low to High
Reviewer: Joe from Florida
Excellent full sound, from the voices to the deep, easily adjustable bass. I love the versatility to use with any receiver verses a dedicated system that cannot be expanded. Right now I am running the [offsiteUrl] channel set-up with plans to upgrade to a [offsiteUrl] channel, which my receiver is capable of a Sony STR-DN850/[offsiteUrl]. That would consist of two more back speakers and a second subwoofer.

Amazing sound with music or movies. It will make you say "Bose Who?" Paired with a Denon AVR-X2100W
Reviewer: Burak from Winchester, MA
I didn't have any high-end speakers before to compare to, however, I visited couple music stores to listen to demonstrations. Initially I had my eye on Bose home theater system, however, after reading a lot of reviews I realized I can get a very good receiver and a speaker set separately for a cheaper price. For my receiver I decided on Denon X4000 series, so far I am very happy with the performance, for speakers I had Polk Audio, Bose, Definitive Technology as my choices. I ended up choosing Definitive Technology ProCinema 800 due to overwhelmingly good reviews. I must say I do not regret my choice. We have a relatively large family room with high cathedral ceilings (~14ft) and speakers have no problem filling in the room. Even at half the volume level setting, I get amazing bang. Both for music and movies I get very good solid sound. I hear amazing detail that I used to not hear from my previous speakers. Subwoofer is very good as well, it has a separate volume control which is very convenient, at around half setting, you get very good bass, if you increase the volume, floor starts shaking which gives a movie like experience. Speakers have a glossy nice finish to them, and they feel heavy and solid. I am very happy with the performance. I would definitely recommend them.
Def Tech 800- A really good choice
Reviewer: JLS from Central Florida
This system provided the proper balance of detailed, nicely nuanced sound and sufficient bass response in an attractive smallish form. These replaced Bose Acoustimass 10's (acquired elsewhere) that weren't quite cutting it. When I explained our issues with the Boseto Sam at Crutchfield he suggested the Pro Cinema 800's. After several weeks, we wholeheartedly agree with the recommendation.

I'm not an audiofreak but I was looking for a better system than the lower end home theater 'box' setups. The sound is excellent for my medium size room. Set up is easy but I would recommend they have information on suggested wiring, etc., instead of my having to researching the subject.

Great Sound with my Yamaha Receiver. Prior speakers just didn't do receiver justice
Immersive Base; Buried Dialogue
Reviewer: ogret from Idaho
The surround speakers (the 4 small ones) put out an amazing amount of bass. The system as a whole (I evaluated it with the 10" sub since the 8" happened to be DOA) sounded just like the theatre presentation of Walter Mitty that I just saw--lots of bass but muted high-mid to treble. (I assume this theatre did not have a Klipsch system.) The Definitive Technology system's bass is clean and strong and mesmerizing if you prefer movies like Men In Black (the worm in MIBII sounded like it would come up through my living room floor) or action/explosion movies. Ultimately though I could not live with the lack of higher frequencies--dialogue was muted, music was unbalanced, and for the dialogue-rich movies I prefer Klipsch turned out to be a better match.
One other note: in using these with a Marantz 100w/channel receiver, one musical passage made the surrounds clip quite noticeably. I suspect to get the dynamic range movies require, big amp power would be a good idea.
