I was looking for paradigm studio 100 for my first and brand new setup earlier in the month. but yesterday, I came across a definitive technology BP2000TL setup at bay/bloor radio (in toronto, ontario). They sounded damned lousy for a set of speakers close to $3000 USD retail price (from audioreview.com). Then I checked out the specs for these babies and they looked AMAZING! then I checked out how they hooked these guys up! dumb guys didn't use tri-wire, or even bi-wire, only single monster cable with NO AMP... nothing... just plainly hooked it up to a denon 4802. you want to know how bad it sounded? I have a pair of $100 speakers with 8" drivers for the bass (downto 35hz) and my speakers sounded better than their 500w 15" built in dedicated sub. And these guys that work at baybloor radio were supposed to be high end experts!!!??? anyway, then I came home and checked out the definitive technology website (www.definitivetech.com) and the suggested retail price was only $1599 USD for the exact same speakers. DID THESE SPEAKERS DROP bBY 50% IN PRICE? if so, I'm definitely going to consider buying these guys over paradigm studio 100. what do you think? ------------------ I love you!! YES YOU!!!
