I purchased a pair of Promonitor 100 MK2s last year, but never hooked them up because of the layout of my place. I recently rearranged some furniture and decided to break these out. And I'm sure glad I did. These speakers are VERY clear, the highs are very audible and out there, the overall sound is CRISP. There's not too much bass coming out of these speakers but if you crank it, you can get satisfactory bass. I paired it with a Definitive Tech subwoofer and now it's perfect. My music sounds much better and I can hear a lot of things I could not hear before.

I also have a set of Polk Monitor speakers that I purchased recently to use as my front speakers (I've been using the Promonitors as my surrounds), and I can notice a big difference. The Polks put out much more bass and are great by themselves, but I like the sound of my Definitive Tech speakers much more than I like the Polks (they're not bad speakers, I just prefer the Deftechs). The highs are very clear and I find myself putting my music on 5-channel setting and gravitating towards the rear speakers - I can hear so much more detail from these speakers. I've ordered another set of Promonitor 100s to use as my front speakers to replace the Polk Audio Monitors, and am looking forward to setting those up.

These may not put out enough sound in a big room, but I live in a small condo and have neighbors so these are more than enough for me. I get VERY good sound even without cranking my receiver up all the way.

At the sale price of less than hundred for a pair, these are a steal and I consider these speakers the best value for money in entry level speakers. These sound better than speakers that cost five times more and are classified higher. If you're on the fence, buy a pair and you'll be glad you did. I was!

the build of the Promonitor 100 (Mk II) is good except for the grill fabric, which is made of a substantially lesser quality than that found in the first generation of these in the mid/late 90's. this new grill will tear upon the first traumatic impact. I wish this PM100 cabinet comes w/ the old black gloss like when it originally came out(seems as though the older model is heavier), and that the leg plate is less woobly on its pivot. The sound as usual is tight and relatively balanced, although it does not come to you as fluid smooth as that of a quality like a B&W or a KEF. for its application, the PM 100 is a good bargain but when compared to the larger ProMonitor 200, the bass would be found lacking a bit. Compared to the Promonitor 80, it is way more balanced. Cosmetic and overall performance would be the appeal for all to consider having this Def Tech pair as rear speakers, w/ the understanding that the limited size will not promise delivery of all the sonic range. Do not spend more than $110 on this new generation.

These were a big move for me - a change of speaker brand after 20 years. But I've wanted some of the Def Tech ProMonitor/Cinema series for several years. The 800s are three times the money, and the tech at Def Tech said he actually thought the 100s are better speakers.

They are great. I bought three pair to serve as my main home theater. And I'm getting ready to order at least one more pair, probably two, for other parts of the house. These are great. I'm completing my brand change across the board.

For SERIOUS home theater, these need a sub. And probably for some music. But they sound great on 'regular movies' like dramas, romantic comedies, etc. And they are great with non-thump-thump music.

Natural sounding, transparent sound. Very high quality drivers in an attractive enclosure that is easily wall mounted. What more could you want. And for $99. these speakers are a steal. Sound better than many speakers at $300 per pair. Be aware that they are lacking in base - that's what you lose with the small size enclosure, but that is easily remedied by adding a relatively inexpensive subwoofer. When my computer speakers with sub died of old age, I wired 2 computers, an old VCR I use as a video tuner into a 25 year old inexpensive Sony receivers into the high input crossovers on an inexpensive Def Tech prosub 100 and achieve really mind blowing sound in my 12 x 14 ft office/study. Highly recommended.

The NCUBs are the previous version of Definitive ProMonitor 800s. They have a very similar tonal balence, meaning that are absolutely neutral, and have the same high resolution sound. They have just a bit less bass than the new model, but if you are using a subwoofer this makes NO difference at all. I am using them as satellites in a system with $1500 front speakers, and they hold their own must great. At Amazon's pricing that is about 1/3 the price of a pair of Promonitor 800s, I am very satsified.

I already have the Definitive Technology 2006, Center Channel CLR 2002 and the 1500 Subwoofer in my home theater.
I purchased these for my computer. Base may be lacking (was not expected from such small monitors), but great sound, none-the-less.
You won't be disappointed.

We are really happy with these speakers. We use them for your basic top 40 type music and some country. They sound good at low and high volume.

These little speakers produce a sound several time their size. Do not expect a lot of bass. What your are going to hear is a balanced sound more apt for easy listening music. Human voices sound warm and pleasent.
