Most electronic devices are not considered “buy it for life.” But you’ll run across a lot of audiophiles and movie junkies that swear by speakers that they bought 20 years ago. Surprisingly not too much has changed in speaker technology since the 1970’s so you can absolutely buy a great set of floorstanding speakers and expect them to last. The Definitive Technology BP6 Tower Loudspeakersare some of the best and most durable speakers on the market. While they look very understated, don’t be fooled. These are absolute beasts. The 5.6 inch drivers and 1 inch aluminum dome tweeters can get loud but are also extremely musical sounding. My brother owns a set and uses them for the front soundstage on his home theater setup and loves them. But these would work really great as just a set as well. Keep in mind that these guys are sold in singles (so double the price).
