Good sound - good value

Summary: I am pleased with the sound for the price. I find the sound to be excellent and capable of handling all the volume I want (I don't go much over 90db). I find the base very good for a single 6" woofer. (I use a sub-woofer in the 5.1 system these speakers are in - sub is Bic F12. The bass sound transition output from these DV62si over to the F12 is seamless to me - Michael Murray TELARC Organ Blaster - Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D-Minor transition from the manuals to the...
Summary: The more I have been around quality audio systems, and live performances, the more I love these speakers (and my older bic tower speakers). They have a lively and detailed quality, that when paired with my modest sub, makes for tremendous enjoyment in my music collection. Currently, I am using them as fronts for my gaming computer. The sound is just amazing. I look forward to enjoying more BIC products.
Summary: I am not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination, but these simple bookshelf speakers have an impressive clarity behind them that makes movie watching a pleasure. It does not do well on extremely deep base, but it is more than acceptable for everyday use. My only regret is that I didn't buy another 2 sets of these for the rest of my surround sound setup.
Summary: Frankly for the price, I did not expect them to sound as good as they do. I've listened to the Klipsch Icon 5 1/4" bookshelf speakers at more than twice the price, and to the Polk Audio bookshelf speakers of roughly the same price... neither compares well to to the BIC America DV62's in my opinion. Neither puts out nearly as much bass, and the highs on the Klipsch are brassy and overblown, while on the Polks they're a bit muted. Are they Paradigms? No.
Summary: These speakers are hard to find. For the price I can't find anything that even comes close to the frequency response these things are capable of. They sound awesome at low power. Highly recommend them for anybody that has a small space they want to fill with a clean pure sound.
Summary: Just received these "like new" at a discount from Amazon. They were in original packaging and literally perfect. I was amazed at how heavy these units are, and buyers should note the physical dimensions because the are not exactly small bookshelf boxes. The construction seems incredibly durable and the design is attractive to me. The greyish exterior and striped vaneer comes across nice, and in my opinion would fit in many different decor settings.
Summary: Ok, I will admit it. I AM an Audiophile, but I am a Practical Audiophile. A Practical Audiophile demands excellent sound, but at a reasonable cost. These BIC speakers produce just that: very, very good sound at a very reasonable cost. I have heard of these for a number of years and the reviews are consistently positive so, at around $100, why not give `em a spin? I am glad I did. There are "music" speakers and there are "TV" speakers.
Summary: THESE ARE THE BEST HIDDEN SECRET SPEAKERS. THE SPEAKERS FOR THE MONEY ARE GREAT. I AM OLD SCHOOL AND HAVE A 2 CHANNEL RECEIVER WITH 50RMS PER CHANNEL. XM RADIO AND CD IS WHAT I PLAY. THE SPEAKERS ARE WELL WORTH THE MONEY. DONT OVERSPEND ON WELL KNOWN NAMES.
Summary: Overall this is a great product. I carefully research all my audio purchases and after testing out Bose, Pioneer, Samsung, Audio Technica and other speakers these were the ones I went with, as they produce sound of a much higher price tag. These speakers are fairly large for bookshelf speakers, and are probably best not wall mounted.
Summary: Summary: Pros: Sound quality Price Size unobtrusive design (not glossy or flashy, just plain matte black) banana plug connections Big and heavy allows more clarity and volume Cons: Big and heavy, if you want to put these on your bookshelf, you'd better have a pretty big bookshelf. If you want small or discrete, these aren't for you. If you use banana plugs, the cables will protrude from the back a fair way. These speakers are simply astounding.
