Bic Venturi DV62SIMar 04, 2003
By Dennis Gentile
I was looking to replace my Boston Acoustics a60 pair after about 20 years of use. I read as many reviews as I could find on the internet and also looked at Consumers Report. I kind of narrowed it down to the JBL S26,Venturi DV62si and Polk r15. The DV62si won the competition. I auditioned each of the speakers and found the BIC pair to have a singularly beautiful sound especially for classical and jazz (which are my mainstays). I was pleasantly surprised by the bass response since CR said they were a bit "bass shy". I recommend highly. (I have my speakers on 12 inch stands.) Bravo BIC.

AmazingSep 06, 2005
By Fireball Paulie
These speakers are far better that I would expect from and bookshelf speaker of this size ands price. I love the warmth of these little speakers. I listened to Bose 301's and these are better to me. I think for what you pay and the sound quality you get it is hard to justify the Bose at 3x the price!
Still a bookshelf speaker, and they do have limitations for the size, but I would recommend them to anyone looking for a bookshelf speaker that sounds great and has a real mans price sticker.

Big sound, little packageMay 22, 2006
By Michael T. Kemp
I just wrote a review of the the Dv-62CLRS speaker, which is a top of the line center speaker. When I bought the DV-62CLRS I also got a pair of the DV-62si's. I paired them together with the DV-62CLRS speaker as my front speakers for my sourond sound system matched to a Rotel Processor and Parasound Amp. After close to a 100 hour burn in these speaker started to come to life. All I can say is that for the price they just can not be beaten. It is a shame that most stereo stores do not stock these so as to compare them to their high dollar speakers. Could be there is some logic to this as they would have a hard time selling those other brand name speakers(at two to three times the cost). when compaired to the B.I.C.s

Accurate Audio's Best ValueApr 18, 2009
By Big Bill
I'm a bit picky about realistic sound; I did a bit of conducting in high school and college. So, it is little wonder that I'm still running a mint pair of ultra-clear ESS amt 1B floor standers in the audio room and Paradigm Mini-Monitors in the HT room.
I first bought a pair of DV62si's as a gift for my father because of two factors: they sound great not only for movies, but for music, too; and, they are a screaming deal, pricewise. Since putting together dear dad's system, I've recommended the DV62si's to four friends who use them in HT surround systems. Needless to say, they are the envy of their friends and families, and pains to their next door neighbors when they show movies and forget to close the windows.
I've been working in a home office for the past six months and needed tunes and NPR in the room. So, I picked up a bullet-proof Onkyo TX-8222 stereo receiver and another pair of DV62si's. An old Samsung DVD player plays CDs and a Sony portable Mini-disk player does the recording and playback tasks.
For years the leading consumer magazine has rated these speakers as one of the most accurate they've ever tested. Yes, they grumbled that there wasn't much extended low bass. However, these speakers were designed for HT applications, where the use of a subwoofer is presumed. So, extended low bass is really a non-issue. The build quality compared to audiophile exotics is utilitarian. However, it is strong and adequate considering the low price.
While many tweak-o-philes insist on sending the crossovers out to replace a cap or resistor or two so that they can claim "miraculous" sonic improvements, that really isn't necessary. The DV62si's in their native state are remarkably similar to Paradigm's Mini-Monitors, which means with their clarity and smooth transitions between low to high frequencies, they sound great with jazz, blues, new age and classical. If one wanted to use this set up for rock or hip hop, a big sub would be in order.
If you've outgrown the commonly available products from the "Joe Sixpack" brands and are searching for entry-level audiophile sound quality at a really low price, you've got to try these speakers.

BIC DV62si - Great speaker/Better valueJan 31, 2007
By George - Liverpool, NY
I took the plunge and bought a Panasonic 50PX60U plasma TV from Amazon this Christmas. To match the great visual experience of the plasma, I also decided to upgrade the sound output to something that would more approximate a home theater experience. For reasons of cost and space, I shyed away from buying a 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 home surround receiver. Instead, I purchased a low cost stereo receiver for $75 on the internet. To go along with the whole consertative motiff, I researched a popular consumer magazine and found these low cost speakers near the top of the list.
At this point I would like to point out that I am no audio expert. I do however go by an old classmates advice that the most important part of an audio system are the speakers because these are what you listen to. If you buy good quality speakers, you will have good quality sound.
So after finding these speakers in a consumer magazine, I started surfing the internet to find out what real audio experts say about them. Everywhere I looked I found everyone raving about these BIC's. And best of all, the price of just over $100 a pair with free shipping at Amazon was impossible to pass up.
Well I now have my Panasonic plasma integrated with a basic stereo reveiver and these two fantastic speakers. The sound quality is unbeliveable. Even though I do not have a home theater surround system per se, I find that these speakers sound like I'm in a movie theater. They have an absolutely fantastic sound quality. And for $184 for two speakers and a receiver, I laugh to myself every time I use them (my wife is very polite about it but I think she has heard me say "how about that sound system for under 200 bucks?" a few times too many).
When it comes to playing just music with these BIC's, the sound quality is excellent. It sounds like the artist is right in the room with you.
So if you're considering buying new speakers to replace old ones or are buying them for the first time, I would highly recommend these great quality speakers. If you are considering constructing a do-it-yourself home surround system, these would do very nicely for the two front speakers in the system without chewing up much space in your viewing room. And even though their size is relatively small (approx 9"x9"x14" tall), they sound like giant size speakers with great clarity and accuracy.
