Pros:$1,200 worth of sound for under $600. Adaptable to various environments.

Cons:May need to be placed as much as a foot off the back wall.

The Bottom Line: These speakers sound great, look great, and adapt to several different listening environments. You would need several hundred more dollars to get better sound.


Since many aspects of judging speaker quality are subjective, there is still no substitute for listening with your own ears. Find a merchant that will let you "test drive" a few pairs in your own listening environment. That said, I will offer my opinion about Def Tech's BP6Bs.

I own two pairs that I use in separate rooms. One pair is used strictly for music in a long and fairly narrow room with carpeting and other sound-absorbing material. The other pair is used for music and home theatre in a large room with paneling, and a masonary floor. Both are powered by a Yamaha RX-V690. The speakers sound great in both rooms.

Some people don't like the bi-polar sound, but I love it. The sound is rich, and produces what is often referred to as a large "sound stage". Although none of the speaker cones are larger than 6 inches, the bass sounds great (I do not use a subwoofer). Instead of a small "sweet spot", these speakers sound great from almost anywhere in the room.

If you like the sound of these speakers, you will be hard-pressed to find better sound for anywhere near the cost of these speakers. In a word - value.
