Definitive Technology SM45, SM55, SM65 Bookshelf Speakers


Definitive Technology announced three new StudioMonitor bookshelf loudspeakers. The SM45, SM55 and SM65 replace the existing StudioMonitor 350 and 450 models and are the first new bookshelf-style speakers from Definitive in nearly ten years. Every part of every new model has been redesigned and improved for improved appearance and performance. All three new models feature Definitive's latest generation patented Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) bass/midrange drivers as well as Definitive's latest Pure Aluminum dome tweeter for dramatic upgrades in accuracy, detail retrieval and life-like imaging. The SM55 and SM65 employ top-mounted bass radiators to augment low-frequency response for deep, precise and powerful bass performance not usually found in such compact speakers.

The new SM product line will ship to US and Canadian retailers in Q4 2011.
