recommendations on new DefTech system???

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I am new here but I think I have decided to go with DefTech for my system. First I was sold on the ProCinema and hang the speakers on the wall but after doing more research I m thinking about the BP-8040 Speakers.Would there be a big difference between these 2 setups?

 

setup 1 = Denon AVR-33213CI with DefTech ProCinema 1000

 

or

 

setup2 = Denon AVR-3313CI with  2= BP8040ST , CS-8060HD , 2= SR-8080BP

 

 

I will be mostly watching movies and using Airplay to listen to Itunes music. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment and my MAIN goal is to get the wow factor from clear and crisp speakers not just loud. Is setup 2 overboard for an apartment? anything you would do to make this better?

 

 

Opinions would be appreciated

if your not going to use a sub with setup 2 i would go with setup one. youll have better bass response and cheaper

Brad the bp8040 come with built in subs.. might now be best but are the bp8040 better speakers?

I would say they are better, i like the effect from BP front speakers, create a wider soundstage. However in my opinion separate dedicated subs will always be better than built in subs. But with the apartment in mind the floorstanding might be a better option.

The built-in "subs" do not go nearly as low as a modestly priced ID sub. the bipolar speakers are much nicer speakers than the pro-cinema. In addition to the bi-polar sound quality, they also have the newer generation of drivers so it should give you clearer midrange and treble. I would go for the BP set-up and get an ID sub to round out the system (or at least save to get one in the future).

You could always split the difference and go with the new SM series like the 55 or 65 AND a good ID sub for about the same price as option 2. It would give you the updated drivers (newer than the BP series) and better bass response.

If budget is an issue...you can get a great deal on the SM350/450s as they are about to be discontinued. Now, finding the matching center (CLR2002) can be a bear, so if you wnet this route, you could use them as surreound and upgrade to bigger speakers for the front later. I own the SM450s and those are one nice speaker, especially for the essentiall 200/pr I paid!

so you would get 4 X SM65 and a good sub over my option 2? I thought the BP speakers are better than the SM based on reviews?

I used to own all Definitive Tech speakers, and I do think they sound great.

But I would also recommend getting bookshelf speakers + multiple subs whether it is DEF TECH or any other brand.

But what are all the speakers you have heard?

You want to hear all the other brands before finalizing no matter what brand you end up buying.
