Summary: I upgraded from the BP8's to these, and I wasn't disappointed. The DefTech BP8's were bright and crisp, with no low end, no sub-woofer. The 8080's have 3 subs per speaker, 1 active and 2 passive.
Summary: Excellant for music & movies. Bought two of these & matching 8080 center. Owned many def tech products over 15 years and they are solid. Great bang the buck. These speakers offer big sound & can fill a large room but are also excellant in smaller rooms as well.
Summary: The imaging as well as mid's and trebles of these speakers are, rather unfortunately, well below expectations. For speakers in this price range I would absolutely NOT feel comfortable recommending them.
Summary: NOTE: The model year of my BP8080sc's is 2012. Please note that the above box, labeled "What is the product model year?" doesn't permit an entry later than 2010. I have owned, or extensively listened to, a large number of audiophile or near-audiophile speakers over the past decade or two.
Summary: I'd waited nearly 30 years to get to the point where I could finally afford the HT system of my dreams - and have a room to place it in. That time arrived and I shopped carefully and listened to a lot of speakers. I'm an audio/video engineer by trade - so I knew the sound I wanted to have.
Pros: Not enough starts to give! Impeccable sonic quality at all levels, quality construction, tremendous sound stage with reflected rear firing drivers, incredible bass without a sub if desired, good value - no need to spend more on "boutique" speakers
Cons: There - simply are none - this, in my mind, is a perfect system
Summary: I purchased these before the holidays of 2012 to "stand in" for my Magnepan speakers that were being factory refurbished. I simply wanted a fairly accurate speaker to listen to my 2 channel music while Magnepan's were getting a facelift.
Pros: Accuracte, non- colored speakers. Very fluid. Verrry easy on the ears. Very attractive.
