    Looking for a good price from an authorized dealer on two DM601s and an LCR60. Suggestions appreciated!

    Where are you located? If you're looking for internet sales, you'll have a difficult time. B&W protects its dealers by working to prevent internet sales (except for demos or used, of course).

    Colorado. I am looking for an out-of-state authorized dealer who is flexible on price and also to avoid local sales taxes.

    It's not going to happen, unless you know someone. B&W makes it a practice to protect its authorized dealers. They do that by making it clear to dealers that they are not to sell outside their designated areas. There are a few B&W dealers willing to break ranks, but I don't know of any off-hand.
    Your best option is to buy in bulk (more than just two speakers) or the Nautilus line, which gives dealers a higher profit margin and therefore more "wiggle room.''

    Good luck.
