The Downside
I have no complaints with the performance of the speakers. Their bass capabilities are beyond what I expect from speakers of their size, but if you feel the need for earth-moving bass or reproducing the lowest pipe organ notes, you will want to add a subwoofer.

Some may feel (I certainly don’t) that the speakers sound a little too tight or dry for their tastes and may prefer more lush speakers, such as the recently reviewed JMR Evolution 3s, which represent the other side of the subjective world of loudspeakers. The DM604S3’s vinyl finish falls short of the B&W CM series Maple veneers, but the difference is understandable, given B&W’s desire to meet a certain price point without making sonic comprises.

Conclusion
The B&W DM604S3 has clearly benefited from B&W’s research and development efforts that went into their higher-end speakers. These full-range loudspeakers are tight, yet dynamic and quick. They perform well at both ends of the frequency range with extended detailed highs and tight lows, without neglecting the important midrange area. This speaker is worth a close audition for the role of either full-range stereo speaker or handling front channel duties in a home theater system. I seriously recommend this speaker.
