I recently purchased a pair of StudioMonitor 65 speakers and a ProCenter 2000 Center Speaker to go with my already owned ProMonitor 800 rear speakers and an HSU Subwoofer. I had considered going with the ProCenter 1000, but J.D. from AV Science rightly convinced me to go with the 2000. I'm now Definitive Tech. Speakers from front to back (excluding Sub) on a 5.1 System. My last Speaker purchase up front was back in the 1990's. I don't change out quickly or randomly. All I can say is, I'm really enjoying this new set up. If I were to use one word to describe the overall presentation, it would be Accurate. I'm in a small 10x13' room and was really struggling whether to go with the 55's or the 65's. I was really wondering if the 65's would be too much sound for the size of room that I am in. I didn't want instruments to get lost in the confusion of trying to be present among other louder instruments in each track in such a small space. That certainly is not the case with this setup. I listen to a lot of music and each instrument is well represented. The horn solo for example in Lady Gaga's song "Bang Bang" was dynamic and crisp. If you've heard the performance of this song before, you know that the horn solo is meant to sound bold and gripping. And it did! I don't know if Definitive Technology is known as being great at laying out a precise sound stage or not, but, I can tell you this. I am really enjoying listening to my audio collection with my Definitive Technology speakers. Instruments sound like they should and sound as if on stage where they need to be, each in their own place. I've listened to Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga's on stage performance of Cheek to Cheek. I got lost in the performance. I wasn't even thinking about which speaker was kicking out what sound. In my mind the speakers were gone. I was there! I also listened to some ZZ Top, Johnny Cash, Diana Krall, Sophie Milma, Bob Dilan, & Lady Antebellum among others. And I really enjoyed it all, especially the Jazz. It was very nice. I'd like to say one last thing. I also don't know if this is the way it generally works or not, but.... the more I listen to this new setup, the better it sounds. Tight, accurate, and well represented musically is the way I would describe these speakers. They really represent themselves well by stepping out of the way and producing musical renditions in a way that I love to hear them. Well, it's time to go listen to some more music. And tonight, it's movie time. Enjoy!
