B&W DM602.5 S3
18 Reviews
rating  4.22 of 5
MSRP 
Description: The DM602.5 S3 is the entry-level floorstander of the range and a new model for Series 3. <br><br> Superficially incorporating the same drive units as the bookshelf DM601 S3, the bass / midrange in fact uses a larger magnet. Together with the larger cabinet volume, this gives a more extended bass response with a different free-field alignment, more suited to the floorstanding format. <br><br> As with all the systems in the range, new style terminals are fitted that allow the connection of 6mm (¼-in) spades yet still allow insertion of large gauge stripped end wire up to 6mm conductor diameter in the side hole. <br><br> Ideal for small to medium size rooms, the elegantly slim DM602.5 S3 eliminates the need for a separate stand and retains a compact footprint. Combine it with LCR60 S3 at centre in home theatre systems.

Bottom Line:   
My dream was b&w 603, but i got cheap these speakers, i am so happy right now. First of all jazz was playing fantastic, but rock music not enough, so after that i bridged mono my power amplifiers and now my rotels rb 850's gives 150 w to each speaker!! Diference between day and nignt, tight bass, so smooth, dynamic, one word - fantastic! After that i upgraded spikes with brick of granit and rignt now they sound tarrafic. For low budget, these speakers are perfect. But don't forget to collect all hifi system correctly, because mine b&w's with rotel are good company;)

Bottom Line:   
What a great speaker. I have an Onkyo SR603 receiver and I audtioned both the DM603 and the 602.5. Both speakers are quite hard to drive and with the SR603 the DM603 just didn't have the range I was looking for. At the dealer I had to use the SR803 to get better range with the 603 and since I was not getting the SR803 this was a no brainer.

Instead the 602.5 sounded rich and full. Excellent mid-range and tight and precise highs. I'm a Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits fan and they sound awesome on these speakers. Mark's throaty voice and this guitar twangs couldn't sound better. Have to admit that I use these speakers with an ASW600 sub and without the sub the base is lacking but then I haven't quite broken them in yet.

To top it all up the finish is amazing

Yes these speakers do have a longish break in time but heck I've got another 400 CDs to run through.

Bottom Line:   
another marketing hype and magazine scam.
i was very skeptical about these "super" speakers.i have heard again b&w in past and was very dissapointed.

this thing has nothing to do with high fidelity.totally unbalanced and muddy mid highs.

i don't understand how a company with such a name produes so crappy stuff.

everything is marketing and advertising.

Fantastic speakers. Beautiful looking, nice, high quality construction.
On jazz music every instrument plays very good, piano, bass, drums, wind instruments, etc. rulz! And with all types of music hearing these speakers is a joy!
But! ALL speakers with a KEVLAR membrane NEEDS AT LEAST 1 MONTH of DRIVE-IN TIME! "advdg" don't hade to bring back after only 5 days! In the beginning sounds every kevlar-speaker not good!
And it is rockstable even at quite high volumes too.
I just can quote "gummy": "These speakers have taken a very long time to break in and have changed dramatically in that time."

Bottom Line:   
After listening to many speakers I compromised and brought the 602.5.My wife is a musician and liked the sound of the B&W over the others. These will be used as our rear channel later on as we intend to by the 604's for the front. These speakers have taken a very long time to break in and have changed dramatically in that time. The mid range is still a bit recessed but getting better.The deep bass is a little prominent and the treble a fraction harsh but is also improving. I use the bungs to tune the bass and that helps but placement is much more important. Overall the speakers are very smooth and have a laid back sound. I can't wait til we get the 604's as these are very strong in all the areas the 602.5 are weak. Not good for loud rock music.
My system is HK AVR 5500, Sony SACD,Velodyne FA1800Rii Sub
