I'm looking at this combo and have not yet listened to it. What do you think of this? Do they match well?This is gonna be my first HT and somehow I have priority for these two brands. My room is not big, around 17 square metres. Also looking at the LCR 3 for it's cheaper.
B&W 's are not bright. Landroval's description is correct. They would probably make that Yamaha sound about as good as possible. I have a dealer that demo's Elite with B&W and it's too laid back for me.
I have before a B&W 603 S2 & a 604 S2 and both did a side by side connected to a Pioneer Elite 49TX, the 603 highs are very bright and bass are boomy if you put it 12" away from the wall while the 604 are warmer and are better balance but if you are going for the 604 S2 or 602 & 603 S3, its a lot improvement than the 603 S2. go and check it out side by side.
See when you take any higher model in the same range it is bound to sound better then comes the question of price the price diffrence in canadian dollars was 500 bucks between the 604 and 603 so for 500 i did not think it was worth the difference but anyways the sound quality is propotional to your pocket and ears lol thanks
