Hi RevStormBringer,

First of all, thank you so much for creating this thread so that all B&W and non-B&W customers can discuss and learn from each other including myself. haha.

Anyway, on your query i would like to highlight that according to specification, the amplification required to drive the CM9 and 804s is 30W-200W and 50W-200W respectively. In another words, the speakers can be driven with pretty low amplification but in terms of the sound, details, imaging etc, i would suggest you to do some audition before making any decision.

From our own showroom, we will be hooking up to both the Classe and Arcam amplification which both behave very differently and the characteristic of both are also different as well as the price positioning. Meanwhile, please do keep a look out on our showroom opening and do drop by for an audition.

Hi rx330,

We will keep all posted once it is in and when the pricing has been firmed up. In terms of the retail pricing, i would like to highlight that it will be a Pan-Asia pricing and that the difference will be mainly from the local duties and taxes.

Thanks for your enquiry.

Regards,
Henry


Added on October 21, 2009, 12:47 amHi all,

Just a note to inform that the limited edition B&W Signature Diamond will be on display and audition when our showroom open.

Do drop by for an audition.

Regards,
Henry

B&W 602 S3 is quite an old model but sound quality is superb. I am not surprised to see it's priced at Rm 1k, in fact this is about the standard market price for a used pair in UK.

The one on the left could be a refurbished one as mine's is exactly as shown on the right hand side picture, and so far i have not seen any 602 s3 has a crossover like the ones in the left picture.


Added on June 14, 2011, 8:21 pmAgain this model is like 10 yrs old if not mistaken, I would still believe the one you found Rm 1k is a refurbished set as I do not think a seller would keep a new speaker for 10 yrs without using it .

Indeed bro Milzer is true! Budget 5k for front speakers or full 5.1 speakers? You could consider getting a used set but dont you worry about the sound quality, used B&W but in great condition ones may still produce a good quality of sound compare to some new speakers which I personally noticed!

I have a set of B&W DM602 which is 15 years old and I am still using it today as my main speakers. Wow...15 years and still going! Bought it at RM1200 back then.

i reckon the 685 will be around rm2.8k..a friend of mine bought it rm2.2k (brand new) sometime last year. He was given special price due to opening day of the shop (if I'm not mistaken)..I've sold my HTM62 for only RM1k (still in excellent condition)...the new price for this center should be around RM1.8k -RM2k....hiway laser is selling B&W ...try over there...gud luck bro...hope this info will help you a bit....cheers
