[quote=youthman;19922950]Hi, this is my first B&W purchase, the DM602 S2's.
My son is 11 yrs old and over the past week, we have put together his first stereo system. I picked up some older gear for him:
Parasound PLD-1100 PreAmp
Parasound PDD-1500 Dolby Digital Processor
Rotel RB-960BX (60w x 2) Amplifier
Integra DPS-5 DVD player
To be honest, I'm a little jealous that my son's 1st system is SEPARATES!
As we were looking for a pair of speakers, I contacted my local dealer and he had a pair of used B&W 602 S2's that he has let me bring home to demo.
I've always loved B&W but have a high end Klipsch setup in the HT. The 602's sound fantastic but just do not provide enough bass for what he's looking for so the 602's will fine a new home in another room in our house.
I do have a question regarding the tweeter. Looking at photos online (Google Images), the 602's do not have the black plastic piece that fits around the tweeter but as you can see in my photo below, mine do. Is this supposed to be there? Just curious what it's purpose was and why the other images online didn't show it.
Welcome to the club! That's a very nice system for an 11 year old, great way to let him get into music. From the pictures those speakers seem to be in perfect condition! There were 4 versions of the DM602(DM602,s2,s3 and DM602.5 s3).Those are DM602's,the first version.
