The challenge of traditional hifi makers who want to survive in a world of small, pretty little lifestyle speakers is to make big speakers as desirable as possible.
Definitive Technology’s BP9000 5.1 system uses striking gloss aluminium instead of chunky wood, and its floor stander fronts are both slim and have subwoofer units built into them. There’s no giant subwoofer box to hide. You can also get Dolby Atmos units for the fronts that add extra height channels to the setup.
They in-built subs perform just as well as many standalone units, and you actually have to manage the bass unit’s dial carefully to make sure there’s not too much low-end in the mix, if anything. Detail is exquisite too, making the Definitive Technology BP9000
a perfect fit for someone with discerning taste, a big budget and a stylish lounge.
