Bottom Line:   
These are better sounding speakers than my B&W DM 602 S2. I love them because the tweeter have excellent details without be harsh. Bass is powerfull and well defined. Match these speakers with good electronic and you will fall in love. !

Bottom Line:   
I have had these speakers for almost 3 years now.I use them with covers off and sitting on well damped stands biwired .These speakers are used in a two channel setup with a very fast sub.In this scenario these bookshelves sound fabulous.Good soundstage,lots of resolution,definition and dynamics.They have a respectable quantity and quality of bass for a bookshelf,delivering an honest 40hz easily.The real-wood veneers are first rate gorgeous.The binding posts are very decent as well,quite beefy.I used to own a pair of B&W CDM 1nt which were about 50% more cost than the silvers.The B&Ws were quite good,no complaints.Are they better than the Silver S2s?I am not sure.Midrange maybe and looks but that would be it.
The Monitor Audio Silver S2 is alot of speaker and sits at the top of its class,imo.

Bottom Line:   
As I have left the realm of HT, and decided I needed HiFi, I gave these speakers a good long demo (and they were already broken in, being demo's). They sounded wonderful when being used within a HT environment, or simply DirecTV...but were too thin when it came to HiFi...very bright, nothing in the middle, and a nice bottom.

Hi guys, I need some help to see if I can correct the highs in my B&W DM 602 S2. I can not stand the bright highs anymore. I have another set of bookshelf speakers, Monitor Audio Silver S2 which has excellent highs. The B&W s are harsh and there isn't way I can enjoy them. If I can not correct it w ... Read More »

B&W DM601 S2 Replacement

I have owed a pair of B&W DM601 S2's for over eight years now and have been very pleased with them. I have recently upgraded my amp to a Cambridge Audio Azur 840A which has brought much more detail to my music, but I feel that maybe it could do with a bit extra. I am thinking of changing the speak ... Read More »

Onkyo TX-SR606/B&W DM602 S2 bi-amping/crossover questions

I've seen a multitude of threads all over talking about bi-amping, and I just wanted to get a small clarification in regards to the speakers themselves. The TX-SR606 supports Bi-amping, and dictates which speaker outputs to hook up to the tweeters and woofers on your bi-ampable speakers (in this cas ... Read More »

B&K 200.5 S2 vs. Parasound 5250 vs. Outlaw 7500

All will cost 1,600 bucks, Outlaw will be new, Parasound is 2 months old, and BK is 4months old. Common sense is telling me to take the Parasound because it's THX certified and has 50 more watts per channel than the other two for the same price (250wpc vs. 200wpc). BK statistically has the highest ... Read More »

Related to the S2 Studio20 post

I threw a comment in there where I fail to understand why some listeners didn't like a neutral speaker. Pat D came back where he witnessed people preferring colored speakers over those that were neutral. I guess to each their own..But this got me thinking,, If a speaker is so accurate and so neutr ...
