EXCELLENT value for the money, make sure they are broken in
on December 26, 2013
I really wanted a high quality system on a budget. Without a ton of money to spend, I spent months researching tower speakings. I tried to find something for $100 a speaker, but was willing to go up to $200 if necessary. I found really positive reviews for these BIC DV64's, and went for it.
I am not an audiophile, and you can not expect audiophile sound out of speakers this inexpensive. My friend who helps with my all of my electronics has a very nice HT setup with a 3d projector, 92" screen, and really nice Onix speakers. I don't have nearly the funds that he does, and his Onix speakers are clearly better than these. But I got these when Amazon had them for $116 a piece and jumped on it. Initially sounded bright, but after a few days of constant playing they really started to sound fantastic. I have since added the DV 62 center, and along with hand-me down Onix Tykes for the rears and a dayton 12" inch sub I really enjoy movies on a budget system. Music is also clear and enjoyable, but you will need a separate sub for rock (what I listen to) or hip-hop (better half listens to). When I turned the sub off it just didn't quite hit the lows as well as it should, but once again unbeatable for the price.
I can't say I've gone and and tested everything else in this price range, but friends with more expensive fluance, klipsch, and polk systems are very impressed with the value brought by these speakers. If you want top of the line audiophile sound you are not looking in this price range, and if you're in the market for quality towers under $200 you will not be dissapointed. Great purchase and I would highly recommend.
Still love these speakers after 3 years. I moved into a house and turned the basement into a home theater. Currently have 7.2 setup with the matching center channel and BIC bookshelves as surrounds, and two Dayton sub 1200's. Receiver is a Yamaha v677, Projector is a BenQ w1070, and screen is a 100" Silver Ticket. I have family and friends coming over all the time for sports and movies.
Movies and sports are loud, clear, and the speakers really add to the theater at home experience. Would buy again today if I was in the market.
