They appear to be on the expensive side for what they are.
In bookshelf speakers my benchmark is the highly regarded (by Stereophile and my own listening) Infinity Primus P163.
The closest thing in the Def Tech line appears to be the Monitor 800 which is a tiny little speaker with a 4 1/2" woofer (if you can call that a woofer!)
I've had speaker systems with woofers that small (such as the highly regarded NHT SuperZero) and they can be pleasant enough to listen to within their obvious limits. No real
OTOH my benchmark speaker which is still a convenient size has a 6 1/2" woofer and while I always recommend that it be used with a subwoofer if possible, it does actually have some bass.
Furthermore, there is the extant Stereophile review and while I don't buy all of their subjectivist stuff, the measurements speak for themselves. As far as the Def Techs go - AFAIK mystery meat.
