Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000 Speaker Reviewed

 

Definitive Technology's very versatile ProMonitor 1000 bookshelf speaker surprised Dr. Ken Taraszka with its bass extension, efficiency, and technological sophistication. If you need small speakers with a big sound, check out the ProMonitor 1000s....

The ProMonitor speakers are relatively small, allowing easy placement either on a shelf or table, wall or ceiling ; Definitive Technology has smaller models for those looking to make a home theater out of these and the need to save money with less...

The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000's are a steal at their asking price, providing smooth dynamic sound and impressive bass performance for their size. I can see these speakers equally at home in a small two-channel rig as I used them or in...

Definitive Technology ProSub 1000 Powered Subwoofer Reviewed

 

When playing movies, our reviewer was pleased with the ProSub 1000's performance. The sound delivered quite a bit of impact and "for its relatively small size, it really thumped and added terrific substance to most material." It also offered a...

The ProSub 1000 sounds very good in both music and movie/gaming settings ; The ProSub 1000 looks good and offers good connectivity ; The ProSub 1000 provides a lot of output for its size, and can be placed near a wall without losing a lot of musicality

The ProSub 1000 lacked speed and veered a little out of control with some music and movie material ; The ProSub 1000 only comes in Black ; The ProSub 1000 does not offer stereo low-level inputs and outputs, phase control or a crossover bypass, which...

The ProSub 1000 offers some very nice value and overall performance for its affordable price. Even if it didn't particularly excel with music, it would garner a recommendation based on its movie and gaming performance alone. But its refined...

Definitive Technology ProCinema 1000 Speaker System and Pioneer Elite VSX-84TXSi A/V Receiver

 

Pricewise, these Definitive Technology ProCinema speakers and this Pioneer Elite A/V receiver are a perfect match. Even visual cues unite them, with the receiver's shiny-black metal faceplate echoing the satellite enclosures' black-gloss curve. In...

Definitive Technology ProCinema 1000 5.1-channel Speaker System

 

Definitive Technology enjoys a hard-won reputation for ofering inovative loudspeakers that deliver high performance at modest prices. A good example would be its $1649 ProCinema 1000 5.1-channel speaker system, which in the deluxe configuration we...

Definitive Technology ProCinema 400 Review

 

The Definitive Technology ProCinema 400 doesn't have the surround sound prowess of some top home theater speakers in our comparison. Our panelists liked the sharpness and clarity of the dialogue the home speaker system produced, but the subwoofer did...

The system produces good dialogue clarity.

It didn't produce convincing surround sound in our testing.

The satellite speakers play clear audio, but the system leaves something to be desired in terms of surround sound performance.

Great Subwoofer

 

Use this subwoofer for music, movies, and organ. Reproduces all of these sources well, and with plenty of volume. Does not produce listener fatigue as did my previous, much cheaper subwoofer.

Compact Size ; Great sound, nice tight bass all the way down

Great sub

 

Keep an eye out for sales, this sub can be had for $300 making it an amazing value.

I paired this sub with two KEF C3 bookshelf speakers and an older Cambridge Soundworks center channel and the results are awesome. I use the setup for 75% TV and movies and 25% music in a very large (20x22ft) family room with hardwood floors. The base...

Not the sleekest looking sub ever but not bad looking either. Only have had the sub a few weeks - will update review if I come across anything else

Great peripheral sound quality.

 

The sound effects are so real we sometimes think the background noises are coming from another room.
