  • Page 5 The comprehensive range of loudspeakers in the 600 Series 3 - small bookshelf units to large floor-standers, dedicated centre speakers and subwoofers - offers numerous alternative combinations for settings from the large, open room to the typical smaller living room.
  • Page 6 Large, spacious rooms demand a powerful set-up. Here, at centre, is our larger dedicated Home Cinema speaker, the LCR600 S3. Flanking it left and right are two floor-standing DM603 S3s, while a pair of smaller DM601 S3s provide surround sound. A larger subwoofer, either the ASW650 or the ASW675, provides the appropriate support for deep, powerful bass.
  • Page 7 When it comes to clarity, control and the reproduction of subtle, low-level detail in audio material, the 600 Series 3 has no rival in its class. Everything that makes it such a strong contender in the creation of a home cinema set-up also applies to its use in a conventional hi-fi setting.
  • Page 8 Should floorstanders eventually take their place for stereo, the 600 Series 3 bookshelf units can be retained as surround speakers to kick-start a high quality home cinema system.
  • Page 9 Finishes At B&W, we take as much pride in what is on our speakers as in what comes out of them. In creating the third edition of the 600 Series, we have paid special attention to cabinet design, with the aim of offering alternatives that will complement the surroundings in your home.
  • Page 10 Primarily a small surround speaker in home cinema installations, the DM600 S3 can double as a high-performance compact hi-fi speaker. A keyhole and two rubber feet on the back of the unit allow for easy, rattle-free on-wall mounting. The more powerful DM601 S3 and DM602 S3 offer stand- or shelf-mounting options.
  • Page 11 Floorstanders The dynamic range and extra clarity generated by B&W’s advanced audio technologies across the 600 Series 3 receive their fullest expression in the powerful floorstander speakers, which can be employed either as front speakers in larger home cinema installations or as part of a high performance hi-fi system.
