This review is from: Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 450 Bookshelf Speaker (Black) Pair
Pros: Paired the Def Tec 450s with Integra 40.4 Stereo receiver (and, no, Onkyo and Integra are not the same; Integra is made with better quality components - notably upgraded capacitors).
Back to the 450s: As noted almost ubiquitously, the 450s lean toward being bright - but it is slight. And they clearly need broken-in over a long period - as is normal. The response has flattened considerably in just two weeks and in a few months of daily use they should produce sound comparable to much more expensive units.
Already, the imaging is just plain - impressive!
Vocal quavers I never noticed before, are revealed plainly. String resonances are longer and fuller.
The 10" passive side radiator is matched well to the drivers. Def Tec must have spent a great deal of time getting this right, and, in a small room there is no need at all for a subwoofer.
We like our music quiet. And so these are rarely receive more than 1/6th of the Integra's available 100 watts (set at 6Ω as per Def Tec specs) - thus, the 450s are excellent low volume speakers.
Cons: The 450s sound vaguely muddy; mostly a break-in deficiency.
Other Thoughts: They are mounted in an unusual way;
The shelf holding the components is above the TV, near the ceiling. A painted length of angle iron is mounted beneath the shelf - 'V' up. The front edge of the speakers balance on a soft strip on velcro in the 'V', angled about 30º downward. The back is stabilized with Snaptoggles in the wall, into which are short lengths of threaded rod with locknuts at each end.
Very sturdy, and they look like they're floating!
