    A dealer is offering me the following for £1200 - all brand new -

    1. Pair B&W 603 S3
    2. B&W LCR 60 centre channel
    3. B&W ASW675 subwoofer

    Is this a good price or do you think I could get them cheaper. I am not sure whether B&W's are discounted significantly but most dealers dont discuss prices on the phone. Also has anyone heard the ASW675 - if so opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    I am enquiring for my cousin who wants to pair them up with my Yamaha DSPA2 amp which he is thinking of buying

    :)

    Thanks
    Regs

    It would seem a good price as it isn't easy to get substantial discounts off B&W stuff and that price equates to a discount of 17.5%

    The sub was tested a few months ago by Home Cinema Choice who gave it five stars and said lots of nice things about it.

    It was a great amp in it's day and is still good. There is no reaosn why the setup won't work well.

    Rags,

    Did you buy the 603's?
    If so how are they?

    No I didnt mate and neither did my cousin. I did pick up an ASW675 though.

    Prior to me starting this thread I had heard the new model 603's at length and compared them directly to Kef Q5's. I prefered the sound of the KEF's - found the BW's to be a slightly tiring listen - the treble on the KEF's was just a bit smoother and to my taste.

    Having said all of that I ended up buying MK's all round as I preferred their sound with movies which is my main priority - their treble is slightly forward as well though but overall for home theatre they are superb.

    Mate, it is probably a good idea to post your offer in the Trading Section on this site. It is also probably a bad idea to give your phone number out on the web to all-and-sundry. ;)
