    Seeking opinions on mains/sub to match my B&W LCR center and DS6 surrounds. I’m moving them to a dedicated HT set up with a 53” RPTV. Space is limited so bookshelves might be preferable. Also, any ideas regarding electronics? Thanks

    I guess you can't go wrong with 602s as mains. They're a great option for your limited space. As for a sub, I have the ASW1000, which my neighbors highly recommend...

    One of the dealers I went to said that theh 602 was a redundant speaker as it was just a bigger 601. they didn't stock the 602 so perhaps that's why they said that. I haven't been to a dealer yet to listen to 602's.

    I just upgraded from 602-S2 series They served me very well
    and they are a step up from the 601 series Go listen and I am sure you will love these speakers as much as I did, My current system is configured with B&W CDM-7 powered by Parasound 2500u and 1205a amp[​IMG]

    Go with an SVS sub. Forget about "matching" brands with your main speakers and the sub. They operate in different octaves so it doesn't matter if they come from the same maker. Not to mention that any SVS will blow away any B+W sub and at half the cost.
