Our Review

Definitive Technology Dymension DM10 Compact Center Channel Speaker Review

Introduction

The center channel speaker is the linchpin of any home theater audio system, anchoring the dialogue and action to the screen and providing a seamless blend between the front left and right channels. With a reputation for excellence in sound engineering, Definitive Technology's Dymension series aims to deliver an immersive audio experience, and the DM10 Compact Center Channel Speaker is a testament to this commitment.

Design

At 7.3 x 19.5 x 12.2 inches and weighing in at a substantial 29.1 lbs, the DM10 boasts a solid and robust presence. Its horizontal orientation is typical for a center channel, designed to sit neatly below a screen, but its weight and size may require a sturdy shelf or dedicated space in an AV rack.

The black, acoustically transparent grille contributes to the speaker's sleek appearance, promoting an unobtrusive aesthetic that complements modern living spaces. However, the grille's fixed nature may deter those who prefer a customizable facade.

Build Quality

Definitive Technology's choice of materials suggests a focus on longevity and performance. The resonance-free cabinet construction is designed to eliminate unwanted vibrations, ensuring that sound remains pure and untainted by the speaker's own movements—a crucial quality for maintaining audio fidelity.

Aesthetic and Placement

The 'disappearing design' philosophy is evident, with the speaker intended to blend seamlessly into its surroundings. Nevertheless, its horizontal orientation and non-negligible footprint mean that finding the ideal location could be challenging in more compact setups or when trying to maintain a particular aesthetic.

Features

Boasting a frequency response of 57 Hz–30 kHz and a sensitivity of 90dB, the DM10 is engineered to deliver a wide range of sounds with clarity. The inclusion of a 1-inch aluminum oxide dome tweeter and dual 5.25-inch woofers indicates a commitment to a balanced sound profile, while the 9-inch passive radiator is a nod to the often sought-after robust bass response in home theater environments.

Audio Technology

The DM10's components are selected for their contributions to sound quality. The aluminum oxide tweeter promises crisp highs and intelligibility in dialogue, while the midrange/midbass drivers ensure a rich, balanced sound. The passive radiator augments the bass without the need for an active subwoofer, providing depth and impact to audio tracks.

Compatibility and Versatility

An impedance of 4Ω (8Ω compatible) and a recommended amplifier power rating of 50-200W make the DM10 a versatile player, able to integrate with a variety of amplifiers. Its design is also timbre-matched to other Definitive Technology speakers, facilitating a cohesive sound when part of a larger system.

Performance

The DM10 shines across a spectrum of content, from action-packed blockbusters to dialogue-driven dramas. The wide frequency response ensures that details are not lost, whether in the subtle rustle of leaves or the thunderous roar of an explosion.

Bass Response

The passive radiator is particularly impressive, delivering a bass impact that belies the speaker's compact size. This feature is a boon for those seeking a full-bodied sound without additional subwoofers cluttering the room.

Dialogue and Detail

Clarity of speech is paramount in a center channel speaker, and the DM10 excels in this regard. Voices are crisp and distinct, cutting through complex soundtracks without strain. The detailed midrange and midbass also contribute to an authentic reproduction of sound effects and musical scores.

Soundstage and Immersion

The DM10's ability to create a convincing soundstage is notable. It envelops the listener, providing an immersive experience that draws them into the heart of the action—crucial for a compelling home theater setup.

User Experience

Setting up the DM10 is straightforward, though its weight may require some consideration during installation. Once positioned, the speaker integrates well with existing systems, particularly those comprising Definitive Technology components.
