When I upgrade to my dream speakers, I really have become stuck on Definitive Technologies BP-2000 TLs for the main channels. They retail for $3000 a pair. I was curious what other brands should I listen to that are in a similar price range? These are basically the only high end speakers I have been able to listen to that aren't $20,000 a piece. (Those were nice.) I obviously want to test everything I can before I throw down that much money. I love the way they sound, but if I find something better then that's great. I would use them mostly for movie watching, but I do listen to some music. And for the surround speakers, I like Definitive's BPVX/P's. I have two questions with these. I haven't actually heard the powered version of these. Will the powered ones sound a lot better than the non powered versions? They are bipolar speakers and I have heard many theories about surround channels. Should I be looking at direct radiating speakers instead? These are $1500 a pair, retail. I haven't found anywhere that sells these cheaper than retail except a store around here that has a 25% off a pair of speakers sale every first week of December. Thanks for your help and suggestions!
