Summary: This is my second pair of Def Tech speakers, the first being a pair of their Studio Monitor 65s. Both sets of speakers are wonderful. I am "old school". Grew up with huge bass reflex cabinets enclosing 15" Tannoy dual concentric speakers which I still have and use. I wouldn't say the Def Techs are "as good", but will say they come close enough to justify their purchase. Best news- they cost only a fraction of what the super "high-end" speakers go for.
Pros: Excellent sound qualities. Very affordable price. Attractive finish- they look great.
Summary: I have a problem... I am a speaker collector. While I don't own the best of the best, I have 20+ speakers.. Sony, Technics, Polk, Kenwood and Pioneer... I have my share. These Definitive Technology BP6's do not disappoint. While these are not the most expensive speakers I have, they do sound the best. The build is different from any speaker I've ever seen. The top and bottom has a wooden cap that has such a shine they appear to be plastic.
Summary: I purchased 4 of these Definitive BP6 tower speakers, originally intending to use the second pair as surround speakers (extravagant, I know). A furniture purchase made this setup unworkable, and as it turned out, unnecessary. The speakers deliver crisp highs and beautiful midranges, and surprisingly good lows. I saw no need to add a subwoofer. I also saw no need for rear, surround speakers, as these speakers are powerful enough to fill the room with sound.
Summary: I've had a pair for a while and I love them more all the time. They took a pretty long break-in period, like a month or so for everything to 'settle in,' but they now fill a large room with good rich sound. Be aware they have back-firing drivers, so try to put them in front of plain wall space. If you put them in front of something deadening, like books or drapes, you will get different results.
You really need too hear these speakers to understand what you're missing.

Summary: OK, a true story (owners of bipolar speakers can probably relate to this). I finally realized that the overpriced and seriously disappointing Yamaha speakers that came with the Yamaha HTIB system that I bought last year were never going to produce a very convincing home theater experience. So out I went to audition new speakers to replace those Yamaha speakers.
Summary: Just picked up a pair of these bad boys at the local audio store not but 3 miles away for a whopping $360 a pair! Yep, thats right, "a pair." Couldn't resist the price and I was in the market to replace my Klipsch WF-35's anyway. Not that the Klipsch are bad speakers - far from it, but I dont have a very huge living room and they were just overwhelming it to the point like I felt I wasnt getting max performance out of them because of their size.
Summary: This is the best center speaker I have ever had. It matches perfectly with my Definitive Technology BP6 right and left front speakers. They are also the best I have ever had. You can't go wrong with Definitive Technology.
