Bowers and Wilkins DM 602 Series 3 Speaker

This speaker soars above the average speaker with so much clarity, depth and response. They have a range from about 20 Hz to 42 KHz and connected to a good amp, can output excess of 120W of pure, undistorted sound.

The tweeter is a super tweeter that has a range of 4 KHz to 42 KHz and is made from aluminium. The 7" driver unit has a range of 20 Hz to 4 KHz and is made from woven Kevlar... yes, the material used in bullet proof vests. This limited dampening to a minimum and thus produces a sharper sound.

These speakers are solely for mounting on stands and, because of their size, require a good half a meter of free space around them for best performance.

At around £300 ($510) a pair, these are a bargain and a must buy for any music lover.

I bought these speakers, with 10 meters of QED Silver 25th Anniversary speaker cable, Silver Mission sand filled stand and a Sony Receiver STR-DE695 120W per channel, 6 channels.
Total Cost: £640 ($1100)

$510 for a pair of B&Ws is quite good! Those are really nice little speakers. :nod: I had a dream about a week ago that my mother (who isn't into high-end audio at all) bought $8000 worth of B&W speakers and I was so impressed. lol

I highly doubt that that woofer is capable of 20Hz though. In all likelihood if you played a 20Hz test tone you'd probably only get a 40Hz harmonic. (At any rate, I wouldn't recommend punishing a bookshelf speaker with a 20Hz tone!) Still, that speaker is a beauty and I bet it sounds as good as it looks! I find it ironic that the woofer cone is made of Kevlar, and its voice coil dust cap looks like a bullet. :)

Still lovin' them after all this time? Hope so. :thumbsup:

Those are the speakers I was actually going for when I upgraded my hometheatre. But then I changed my mind and got some MonitorAudio's instead.
To this day I still wonder if I made the right choice though.
However, when I was going to buy them they where'nt priced at $510. Quite a bit higher actually, of course I was going for the ones with double 6,5's.
Mine where just as good though, but the don't look nearly as spectacular...
