  • Summary: I first herd the bp8b's 15 years ago at a high end store and I never forgot them. I have wanted to buy a pair right then and there but couldn't really afford them at the time. A month ago I looked on eBay and found a pair for 315.00 and quickly bought them. I have had a pair of Advent6003 which are an amazingly smooth and good sounding speaker but after 25 years I am very bored with them and needed a change badly.

  • Summary: These are A incredible speaker for the money. Gives the average person a taste of Reference Speakers without breaking the bank. The company stands behind there product 100% which is hard to find these days. If you are a Audiophile U will hate these speakers because of the Bi-Polar speaker Technologies stereo imagining does not exist. If you are AVphile that's where these light up.

  • Summary: as shown, i only paid $265 on ebay, plus the seller lives 25 miles from me, so i just picked them up, no shipping $. i sold a pair of b&w 601's and a pair of kef q15's for almost $500 because i figured i would have to spend every penny to get something better. even at their retail price of $800 they are a steal!!!

  • Summary: Well, after 20 plus years my JBL L46's finally gave out. The foam surrounds on one woofer were cracked, on the other seperated. Strong bass notes meant distortion every time. So I'm thinking to myself, "These speakers were good, and cost $400 twenty years ago. I should be able to pick up something of similar quality for around $600 now." After trips to Best Buy, Circuit City, and others of that ilk, I found out how wrong I was. Everything sounded like crap!

  • Summary: So I've best running around for most of my life trying to fall in love with a speaker. I have finally done it. I went into my usual audio store to listen to some B&W 603 S2's after hearing some paradigms (which sounded awful) at another audio store near me. The sales guy was more than happy to show me the B&Ws, but I then noticed the little monoliths sitting right near them. I asked about them and he says that they are Definitive Technologies, and are amazing.

  • Summary: Alright, here's the story: Well, when i was in high school (yes, I'm young...) I wanted to have a good home theater setup, so my dad and I went off to the local "boutique" A/V shop, and ended up with some Boston Acoustics speakers, a cheap Denon receiver, and a DVD player I still like because of it's immense ease-of-use (my c. 1950 mom can operate it...

  • Summary: I recently bought 2 BP8B DefTech Speakers. Now I currenly own these two, and a C2 center, and PF15+ Subwoofer from DefTech. I am using a Harman Kardon AVR 110 receiver which puts out (ONLY)40 watts per channel. Now that my setup is complete every music cd, dvd, sounds the way the stuios and record studios wanted to to sound. I have 380 DVD's and I just found out that I can watch them all over again from A to Z.

  • Summary: I've owned these speakers for about three years and would recommend them to anyone. Ignor the last review for he doth' not know to what he talks about. Bi-poles take a bit getting used to and position is critical. Once you find the spots they sound great.

  • Summary: It only took a couple of hours to determine how revealling these speakers were. How bad they were that is. A couple of CDs sounded fantastic with them but I would like to listen to more than 2 CDs. The upper midrange and lower highs are way over done and the low-mid midrange is missing in action. The bass is decent if you like a big 50-80 hz hump. They probably make good rear surround speakers or would be usefull to listen to noises in outer space. But NOT music.

  • Summary: I've owned these speakers since 1994. I listen to them everyday and have never had a problem with them. The place where I bought them gave me the option to "upgrade" to any other set of speakers within one year of purchase and I could use the full purchase price of the speakers towards new ones. So, after being highly satisfied with the BP8's, I listened to every model that they had at the time- back to back against the BP8's.
