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.
