B&W DM601 S3's 6.5" mid, dome tweet. got the ones in the black ash wood. demoed the klipsch, paradigms, and 2 sets of B&W's (in my price range) at my nearest shop yesterday, and i was REALLY impressed with the detail, midbass, midrange, as well as the highs. AMAZING little bookshelfs. running them off of an older Yamaha RX-V1070, aided with a 12" assassin for gained authority under 60 hz.

picked em up for $450 at my local shop

also, picked up a set of Grado open air SR125's headphones for $150. going in, i was kind of specticle, like how good can headphones sound? since im used to crappy phones, i didnt really expect much. gave him my budget (200), and he hands he this set. plug it into a Grado headphone amp, and i was BLOWN away. they sounded like high end speakers, in my ear. long story short, came back the next day (today) and bought em. been listening to pink floyd all day :laugh:

anyways, the shop i got it from is "speaker shop" and they are VERY reasonable, and i recomend it to anyone in the buffalo area

onto the pics,

pics are somewhat grainy, but deal with it

ill take some of the back of the cabinets, and some pics of with the covers on in a couple minutes. anyways, post up your B&W's (or any speakers you like) and enjoy

BTW these Grados deliver SICK bass, very comfortable, and a non fatiguing souond- i recomend them to anyone, even if its out of your budget

im going to make a pocket headphone amp once i learn a little bit more about them too, btw

you want to get those speakers off the shelf, and onto some nice spikes, it will enhance the midbass a lot.

Nice MANG NICE!!!

ENJOY!!!!

I love my DM601 S3. Before I got the 703 fronts I used to put them up front and disconnect the DM330i's. They are very impressive for being little guys like they are...

The black and yellow is just clean and ****. It's very modern with a general bad *** feel. It's the same on my 703.

Wow i thought the speaker shop went out of business. Over there on main street near UB campus. Last time i was in there they had a ton of Mcintosh equipment. Do they do car audio still?

yep, still in that position. you may be thinking of stereo equipment, which moved a few years back. they still have a ton of mcintosh in stock, along with pioneer elite, rotel, krell, etc. very nice stuff. awesome service in there as well. find a time where its dead, you may be able to listen to the Quad electrostatic speakers for 11k...

sorry just saw this post, my reciever says it puts out 110 rms for the front channels @ .015 THD, but im not sure how accurate that reading is. ill probably upgrade in a few years, but i got this one for a steal (150 shipped, used) so itll stay untill i get more money

Yea.... Sometimes.... I am moving in a couple of months and I got that new Plasma so that is why the Center is on the floor... I realize it's not optimal but I'm not buying furniture until I move....
