arclight, if you haven't picked up a centre yet, I can recommend the B&W LCR600 is a great match for the 602's. I am still using it having traded my 603s in for 802D, but I still like the LCR600 in form and function enough not to upgrade it yetHello Everyone,
New member here. I have been enjoying this site for a while now and recently upgraded my entire system.
Previous system -
Receiver - Denon DRA 295
DVD Player - JVC (Nothing special for sound but has a great pic.)
Speakers - Energy C1
Subwoofer - Energy S8.3 (Purchased from the Good Guys during there going out of business sale for 99.00 brand new.)
New System -
Receiver - NAD T743
CD Player - NAD C521BEE
Speakers - B&W 602 S3
I still have not picked up a center. But will be in the future. The Energy's will go in the back and the sub will get used when my room becomes larger. The sub is overkill in my current 10' x 10' room. I have nevet been able to get it to sound that good. I'm thinking a sealed sub in this smaller room room would have been more prudent. But at 99.00 bucks I could not resist trying the Energy. Which is in current production and retails for 349.00.
My big question being. How long do B&W's take to break in. The 602's seem a bit crispy up top right now and the mids seems to be pushed back. The bass sems like it could go deeper. But im thinking some of this could be my room.
Any thought's or comments would be appreciated. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and contributing when I can.
