    602 S3 - they have better control of their low-end. 603's sound slow, bloated and overblown.

    (Flame-suit on!) ;)

    I'm currently using 602.5s in the front and wish i could have gone for the 603 or 604's. The 602.5's are (imho) good value and produce a reasonable reproduction of the intended material being played, but as with most things they are designed and built to a budget and this shows in some aspects of the performance.
    The Rotel 1075 made a huge differance in their performance, particularly the detail and clarity, and the Velo CHT10 fills in when they run out of puff down low, but all said and done i wish they were 604's. :(
    Come to think of it i wish they were Sonus Faber Amati's......:zonked:

    GJC - The DM603 S3 is a very different beast to the DM603 S2 - I'd agree with the people before you on this one..

    The DM602 S3 gets my vote.

    Oops, I read it too quickly too! :blush: Still, my original recommendation still stands.
