@Wryker Glad you like the PL-66 ! What feature do u like the best from the 66's the most ? Are the Bic Acoustech's the first speakers you owned ?
I'm one of 'those' that want the speakers to all be from the same family so they are timber matched. I had a Denon 3312 and I had a 7.1 speaker set-up of Aperion speakers (cost me >$3K).
I had issues w/the Aperion tweeter and after playing the blame game (it's the speaker, it's the receiver) and replacing the tweeter and things still going on I decided to change it all out. My neighbor has BIC's (older series) and I've always been impressed w/the sound (and dB ratings) and the price was like "too good to be true"? But having heard his and knowing he's had them for years made me a believer.
So I boxed up the Aperion's where they remain (great speakers - and they are for sale for CHEAP!) and I purchased the 7.1 set-up of BICs and decided to go bigger and get another PL-200 woofer thus I have a 7.2 setup (and I sold the Denon 3312 and bought an Onkyo 818 - first AVR I ever purchased for my man cave not a Denon). I like the PL-66's 'angle' of sound. While some may not like them for sides I find them perfect. I have the sides 'pointed/angled' directly towards the main seating position while the rears are wall mounted.
I might buy a cheap AVR and put another set of P66's up as front wides (or high's). I already have the PL66's to do that.
