Earlier this year we tested the Definitive Technology ProCinema 600 six-piece satellite/subwoofer system and came away impressed, but with reservations. This time we're looking at the ProCinema 800. At first glance, you could be forgiven for thinking that it's a near twin of the earlier system; however, it doesn't share any satellites or even the subwoofer with the smaller system. While the ProCinema 600 is the entry-level system, the step-up ProCinema 800 system we're looking at here comes with four ProMonitor 800 satellite speakers, a ProCenter 1000 center speaker, and a ProSub 800 subwoofer. The speakers are currently sold separately, for a total of $1,200 (in piano black or gloss white finishes), but Definitive should soon be offering them as a single package to make for a more convenient purchase.
