I have a RF83, RC62, RS42 system, so that is my year long Klipsch reference point.
My Def Tech reference point is auditioning the BP7000, BP7002, BP7004, and BP7006 one year ago.
In my opinion each model in the 7000 series was better than the next lower model and the BP7000 was a significant step up compared to the BP7002.
I would say the same thing about the Klipsch Reference series, and in my opinion the RF83 was a significant step up from the RF63.
In the last month I have listened to the RF7 and while I was not able to do A/B comparison I really liked the way it sounds so its position at the top of the Reference Series vs the RF83 seems to be a good move.
I could not pull any info about the BP2000 from the Def Tech website, if the BP2000 is the equivalent in sound quality to the current BP7000 (and money is no object) I would probably
choose that system over a RF7 system.
If the BP2000 is the equivalent of the BP7002 system I would choose the RF7 system in a heart beat and never look back.
Since you have the powered sub built into the speakers you will probably want to add two sub woofers to the Klipsch system so factor that in for pricing and floor space.
One thing that is certain, the Klipsch speakers will sound different than the Def Tech speakers.
While different does not necessarily mean better if comparing to the BP7000, I would say the Klipsch will have an edge in clarity.
The rest as always comes down to personal preferences.
Not sure if my comments will help, please let this thread know what you decide to do.
