I wanted to take a minute and write to thank you for your outstanding line of speakers.

I have been purchasing BIC America DV62si bookshelf speakers for our faculty studios at Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance for several years now, but this past summer I asked for and received funding to replace 13 of the audio systems in the Boyer College classrooms. This entailed audio systems with amp, cd, dvd, cassette, turntable, tv, and vhs and wall mounted speakers. The systems had to sound great for classes in classical and jazz music, all manner of vocal music from choirs to opera, plus a wide variety of instrumental and pop styles for the dance classes. Basically, everything.

Having heard the DV84 speakers, and knowing the quality of the DV62si speakers I've been buying for years, I purchased 38 DV84 speakers for these installations (many of our rooms are large and received 4 speakers each). Even at our school, where the students and faculty take for granted and are used to hearing sound from high quality speakers, I have been receiving numerous compliments on the quality of the sound in the classrooms. Part of this is, of course, the quality of the audio components, but it is in large measure to the superb sound of the DV84 speakers which have a full, rich, very warm sound, and are able to faithfully reproduce every sound from the highest piccolo note to the lowest organ pedal.

In every room, the sound envelops the students without ever being shrill or harsh, and the upper limits of the speakers have not yet been reached, as they take every watt of power from the amplifiers, and still seem like they are not even trying hard. Every chance I get, I go into a classroom and listen to the professor playing Strauss, or Modem Jazz Quartet, or see a dance class rehearsing to hip hop, or African drumming. And in every room, the sound is superb.

Thank you very much for your outstanding speakers. I look forward to many more years of purchases of BIC America products.
