    Hey guys,

    Has anyone heard both? Comments? Are the CM's that much better than the 600 series? In the 600 series I'm looking at either the DM603 S3 or the DM604 S3.

    Also how do the surronds and center channels sound and compare?

    Thanks

    Tom

    I listened to the 604 S3 and the 7CM. Using music consisting of female vocal, piano, strings, I felt the 604's rendered the voice slightly deeper than it should have been. Piano was OK, but again, the pitch was off. The 7's were much better at voice and piano, but lacked bass compared to the 604's. I did not feel either speaker was worthy of the $1500 price tag.
