And now my BP9060's, A90's and CS9060 are at my local shippers warehouse, awaiting to be put into a delivery truck and, perhaps, delivered to my house early next week.

So, I've called them, and I COULD pick them up at their warehouse tomorrow. Should I???

I've got some work to do. I need to mount my 70" Sony XBR70X850B tv to the wall so I can raise it high enough to use the new CS9060 below it...though I probably COULD find time to hook up the speakers too...hmmmmm.

God I love buying new equipment, I'm jealous but I have bought my fair share over the last few months. I personally would have it delivered but it all depends on whether you want to or need it right away. You bought nice speakers, I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them in the future.

I'm curious also as I have not received my shipment yet. I am still waiting for my receiver to ship. Like others in this thread, I'm looking forward to hearing your assessment.

I have the same setup except I wanted the unpowered 9040 center.I used to own the 8060's with the powered 8060 center.I never liked the powered center.So far I love my setup but have only played them at low to moderate levels.This weekend I want to open them up and give them a healthy workout....Congrats on your purchase...you will love the system.

Def Tech takes some abuse from people on forums but they design and build great speakers. Those that buy them, love them. I'm glad I stuck with them on my latest system creation.

Thanks for all the advice here. Really enjoyed the information. I decided on sr 9080's instead of buying bp9040's with a90 modules. They should be here wed.

Breaking in my bp9060's and cs9060 with a Denon x4300. Hung my Visio 75inch and ran audyssey a few times. Still using a BIC pl-200 sub, but may replace that soon.

Visio 75" P75-c1
Denon AVR 4300H
Def Tech 9060 Fronts w/ A90 modules
Def Tech 9060 Center
BIC PL-200 sub

Def Tech makes quality speakers, just go with a different sub.

Epson Pro Cinema 6030 | OPPO BDP - 103 | Pioneer Elite VSX 70 | Definitive Technology PM 1000 (L/R) | PC 2000 (C) | SR8040BP's (7.1) | Rythmik LV12R | Carada Criterion Brilliant White 118" | URC MX 780 & MRF 350 | ATS Acoustic Panels | Sanus AV Rack | DirecTv | Roku 2 | Monoprice 12AWG |

I agree with that. I have an SVS sub and love it. Too many good cheaper subs out there to go with Def Tech subs.

This is my first media room and just started getting into the a/v world. I got the bp9080 towers, cs9080 center, sr9080s for surrounds and rear surrounds, denon avr 4300h for my receiver, Espon 5040 projector, Oppo 203 blu ray player. Is there anything else I would need to make this engine start up and run? All opinions and feedback are welcome. Thanks -James

A bad ass sub from SVS or a few others would really help. Even though you have subs in some of your speakers don't rely on just that for low end bass. A dedicated sub will go a long way to making it a true home theater. Just don't get a Def Tech sub, overpriced for what they do.

I was wondering about that if I should get a separate subwoofer. I'm going to look into it for sure

As someone that tried to get away with just the subs in my towers I can tell you it makes a huge difference. The dedication sub working with the subs in your towers will be awesome believe me.

I tried to go without a sub for a while after I got my towers(9020's)and eventually bought a HSU Research VTF-15H MK2. It's a bad ass sub that didn't break the bank and It was a night and day improvement!

Excellent Sub for that price.

As usual, the only thing wrong with DefTech Subs is their Bang-4-Buck margin.

Huge difference I know. When I got my SVS PB-1000 it was night and day difference. Just awesome what a good sub does for the entire system. Now I need to add a second PB-1000. That will come down the line a bit.

Yep a second VTF is my next purchase. As soon as I can talk the wife into it! She was less than pleased with the size of this monster and now it's going to take some serious bargaining to get her to agree to another one.

Actual Height speakers in or on your ceiling if possible. In my original(all Def Tech) Atmos/DTSX setup I had the height modules on my towers and it sounded pretty good, but changing to 4 on ceiling speakers was a HUGE improvement to my ears. I realize you have the 9080's and the height module is built in, but if you want the best sound in/on ceiling is the way to go. IMO

Good choice on the player I have an Oppu UDP-203 and love it.

I'm on the same boat believe me. Convincing and finding a place for it. Believe it or not the convincing part is the way part. Finding a place is the tough one.
