The orientation dependence of slowness and electromechanical coupling coefficients of 0.92Pb(Zn1/3 Nb2/3)O3-0.08PbTiO3 (PZN-8%PT) domain engineered single crystal was analyzed based on the measured complete set of elastic, piezoelectric, and dielectric constants. There exist one quasi-longitudinal, one quasi-shear, and one pure shear wave in each of the -, -, and - planes. The slowness of the quasi-shear wave exhibits strong anisotropy in all three planes, and the coupling coefficient k33 and k31 reach their maximum in  and  directions of cubic axis, respectively. Because the composition of PMN-8%PT system is very close to the morphotropic phase boundary, the extraordinary large piezoelectric coefficients d31 and d33, and high coupling coefficient k33 are very sensitive to compositional variation. We have performed error analysis and proposed an improved characterization scheme to derive a complete data set with best consistency.
