    Mine also say the series number on the back. Your not interested in a Center Speaker to match are you? I have a B&W CC6 S2 for sale at £100.

    Shamless Plug!

    You can tell the revision by the tweeter.

    I believe the S1 tweeter has a little 3 pronged plastic thing over it, like:

    The S2 has just a silver dome tweeter, and the S3 has a bullet shaped dust cap for the woofer and a curved front design.

    I'm not sure on sound differences though.

    Regarding prices, a quick look on a popular auction website at completed sales show the DM601s1 going between £62-95 + del (depending on condition).
