    B&w

    Hey gang. I am presently quite happy with my speakers, but have been eyeing up others. There is a good deal locally on some minty B&W DM22's. They seem well regarded and are priced for a song.

    I'm curious what anyone's opinions are on these or any other models. I can't remember the exact model but I have heard a 600 series pair. They were nice but I dodn't get enough time.

    I also am glad he is a mod. He is a very enthusiatic member of AR. I am sure Adam thought it was easier to let him moderate than respond to all his report bad posts. That was the reason Eric asked me to moderate.

    I have owned B&W speakers in the past and have enjoyed them. They were the models that had a 6 1/2 inch woofer and aluminum dome tweeter. The drivers were mounted to a hard resin casting and the rest of the cabinet were MDF. They were good and I wish I still had them. If they work and are inexpensive I think they would be worth a try.

    I'm one that like the British speakers in general, but B&W are as quality as you get. Even their less expensive models still perform well indeed. If I remember this model correctly, they have the dome tweeter in combination with the 8" woofer, and getting the two to mesh has been difficult for anyone to do. However, I trust B&W designers to get the slopes intersecting correctly. Are you looking at these just because of price or are there other reasons? I think the 600 series are excellent at their price point, and bring the B&W sound down to the affordable level. They are now building the 600 series in China to keep them affordable, but so are many other top brands and the list grows daily.

    Those 707's are from the mid 80's if i remember right. I remember that lineup with the light baffle and the Mission written across it. Heard nothing but good thing about them. My uncle had a pair of B&W DM7's in the early 80's and i remember them sounding amazing

    That could be a while given that he keeps swapping speakers every month

    If speakers were women we'd all be philanderers.
