Also have the 602's and 603 being driven by my NAD T770; using my B & W CM10's for the surrounds.
They are fantastic for the money and sad to see discontinued with no direct replacment as my brother wanted to buy some and is now looking at Paradigm Monitor 9's as an option.
Are the Monitor 9's as good?
I find that I really don't use my Velodyne sub much any more; only for movies that go "boom." For music, which I listen to in two channel, the Ushers sound better without the sub...even though the sub has a setup mic and I've used a SPL meter and the Sound & Vision DVD to "match" the sub to the room and to the 602's.
The 602's REALLY shine when playing Vinyl though!
They only break up about the time my ears start to hurt, so even though they can't handle monster power like the Dancer series, they are perfect for my rather small and "bright" listening room.
Highly recommended...though discontinued.
