I find it rationally hard to fault the Definitive Technology BP7000SCs for anything. Frankly, past complaints about their size and look I feel are a bit unfounded, for these are big speakers in the business of producing big sound. What else can you expect? Sure, BP7000SCs need a bit of breathing room and a nearby power outlet or two, but I have to imagine that those of you smart enough to welcome the BP7000SCs into your home are also savvy enough to know how to call an electrician to move a socket or two.
These speakers are heavy and, because they are physically thinner than most speakers in their class, are prone to tipping. However, the included carpet spikes really go a long way toward solving this problem.
Quite honestly, the biggest issue I had with the BP7000SCs was their piano gloss end caps, which not only showed fingerprints like nobody’s business, but were harder to keep clean and dust-free than any speaker I’ve ever encountered. I had my Swiffer on permanent standby throughout the duration of the review.
The Definitive Technology BP7000SC Super Towers, with a retail price just shy of five grand, are as close to a true masterpiece of audio engineering as anything I’ve encountered in all my years in audio. They do equal justice to music and movies and everything else in between. No longer does the rationale of compromise need to enter the audio debate.
Compare the Definitive Technology BP7000SC loudspeakers with the best from the world of ultra-high end and you might find overall the Definitive speaker system is the most well-rounded in a group that includes speakers costing as much as a new Prius. With a big yet detailed sound, it’s just hard to beat such a rocking loudspeaker system. At their price, the Definitive Technology BP7000SCs are simply amazing.
