I was disappointed in the capability for these speakers to handle very high volume / loud listening! The result is a rattling distortion of the complete sound profile. I did not expect this from from these speakers with such high recommendations! What I had heard at Best Buy comparatively does not match up!

What I do like are the highs and the midrange, these monitor speakers also flow nicely with the Bass from the Subwoofer. However, I will comment on the Bass Subwoofer in my next review, the Subwoofer is "boomy" not precise in replicating true Bass sounds!!

      Great and small normally do not go together.....

      By 

      from SoCal

      Comments about Definitive Technology LoudSpeaker Black:

      A speaker that is all of 8" x 4" and still makes for great, non-tiring music listening sessions is a wonderful thing. I am using these in a 2.1 with a Harman Kardon receiver and a Martin Logan sub and even movies sound great. And this is while I am still working on figuring out the best crossover from the sub to the satellites.

      Lady's joy

      By 

      from Denver, CO

      Comments about Definitive Technology LoudSpeaker Black:

      I often wonder why my husband made our living room a jungle with all those big speaker boxes; so I complained. He replied that small speakers do not bring out true cinema sound. I still complained.... so we tested five small speaker sets and I had to agree with him until I listened to the little 800 at Best Buy. So I bought them and we auditioned them together. My husband's response was that he never heard heard any other small speaker bring out such rich sound. So we got rid of the big coffin-looking boxes and now we have more space to dance.

      Little giant

      By 

      from Denver, Colorado

      Comments about Definitive Technology LoudSpeaker Black:

      The mid-range can sound week when powered will a low powered amp. While it's true that the speaker sounds better listening to electronic Music than classical, using a sub can easily solve this problem. These little giants deserve at least a 4.5 ratings. Rex

          Useful Kitchen Accessory

            Comments about Definitive Technology LoudSpeaker Black:

            The review headline is not a typo. I needed a pair of dedicated speakers in the kitchen, and this model proved to be a reasonable combination of price, light weight, and sound quality.

            The lightness came into play, as they were going to be on top of flimsy builder-grade kitchen cabinets. I originally wanted a cheaper pair of speakers, but they turned out to be bigger and weigh a lot more than the ProMonitor 800s.

            One listen with in the test area helped seal the deal for me. Plus, the 800s carry a high waf value (old married guys are familiar with this term, and newly married ones will be).

            Of course, ABT's listening area is not the same as a real-world environment, especially when taking into account existing equipment.

            It worked fine when driven by a Philips MCM530 shelf system, filling the kitchen with music of sufficient volume without disturbig anyone who should happen to be two rooms away.

            The original setup called for the stereo & stock speakers to be in the dining room, which is situated in between the kitchen and living room. That's fine, but because the layout serves as to act as a baffle relative to anyone in the kitchen, I would have to crank up the volume just to hear music in the kitchen, which would disturb my wife's telly watching in the living room.

            So yeah, I think I made a good purchase.

            These speakers are sold individually and without cables. I guess the prevailing thought would be the owner will do something custom with cabling. I was no exception, as I needed to run in-wall 16ga x 4 speaker wire in a manner to as not to be hideous (remember that waf thing I mentioned). Hint: a low voltage cable stapler became my best friend in the ordeal, not to mention a 1/4" and a 5/8" drill bits, raceway boxes, banana plugs, 18ga speaker wire, and speaker conector faceplates (the banana plug/binder post type).

            Next on my list is an A/B switcher, so I can choose between the dining room or kitchen speakers.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The sales guy was most helpful in determining the most appropriate product, taking into account lightness, sound quality, and price. Warehouse pickup was quick as well.
