"The sound nearly makes a grown man weep with joy.... I am at the top of Def Tech Mountain, and it sounds heavenly!"
Let me take a few minutes to write of my "journey to the top of Def Tech Mountain"! It all started about 2 years ago when a friend of mine from another state made me such a deal/offer on a complete Def Tech system, that I had no choice but to buy it, just to see what it sounded like...
Here is what the system consisted of: BP30 fronts, CLR2500 center, BPX rears, and BP2006TLs that I would use in my drum room, as my Rotel gear didn't do "rear center." I hauled it all home (at 90 mph), hooked it up, and right away, within 3 minutes of the first DVD, I knew that I would never have another center channel without a built in powered woofer! The step-up was jaw-dropping unbelievable! This is the SINGLE best step for anyone to take.
With the BP30s up front, the sound stage became huge, as in: "close your eyes and it's a wall of sound," not two speakers playing. The BPX Rears did the same thing.
The BP2006TLs went to the drum room. And because I loved the sound with the built-in amp, I took a step up the Def Tech Mountain and went and bought another used pair to replace the BPXs in the theater room set-up. Oh man! Putting rear speaks back there with powered woofs opened up yet another world of sound from the rear!
I now had to have 7.1, so I bought the Sunfire Ultimate Receiver and moved the other pair of BP2006TLs into the theater room. My dealer took in a pair of used BP2000TLs and made me an offer I had to take. I sold the BP30s for MORE than I paid and took yet another step up the mountain. Going from BP30s to BP2000TLs is like going from a Cavalier to a Camaro. Bigger sound stage and PHENOMENAL BASS. Well, I might as well buy a NEW CLR 3000 and sell the used 2500, so I did.
I placed my order for the new BP7001SCs. Sold the used BP2000TLs on eBay, AGAIN for more than I paid, and picked up the 7001s. That was night and day difference from the BP2000TLs. I thought I was now at the top of Def Tech Mountain, but wait... if the 7001s sounded that much better than the 2000s, why not replace all my BP2006TLs with brand new BP7004s? I took the step and placed the order! I am at the TOP O' THE DEF TECH MOUNTAIN, right? NO!
To be at the top, I had to sell the new 7001s and get the BP7000SCs, just to put my mind at ease that I had the best Def Tech speaks available up front. So I sold mine and placed the order. Picked them up, hooked them up and sat back and smiled. I could probably sell the 7004 rears and rear centers and upgrade them, but why? I am as close to the top as I need to be.
The sound nearly makes a grown man weep with joy. Close your eyes and listen to every instrument playing, watch the DVD of your choice and FEEL the guns, cannon firing, etc. Having a powered sub in every channel is what THX does and recommends. So, if you haven't heard this system at your dealers, stop by my place for an in-home demo!
I have owned 5 systems since 1995, and this one BLOWS ALL OTHERS AWAY! For me, I AM at the top of Def Tech Mountain! And it sounds almost heavenly!
