    it is an old speaker, I would be willing to bet the 603 is a "better" speaker. My uncle has some of those Matrix and it was a good set up, but I hear the 603 s3 is an amazing speaker for the $$$ (that from a friend of mine who owns a B&W deal, his exact qoute "I would even say they are better than the older Matrix stuff" there you go, hope it helps.

    Save your $$$, AND GET THE NEW Nautilus series down the road.

    Uh I doubt that the 6 series is better than the 80 series. Of course, listen to them if you can.

    Bhagi, we are talking about Matrix series built like 10-20 years ago. NOt the NEW stuff or even last generation

    Decided to keep the 603 S3 and not care for the 803. I think I'm best saving for the N803's later down the track of similar [​IMG]
