I understand the current 600 range is being replaced (loads of ex-dem 600 S3's around on sevenoaks clearance site) - does anyone have any info/piccies on the enw ones?

Do you know or are you guessing from the Sevenoaks clearout?

There aren't that many...

Ditto. Rather a major thing when they renew the 600 series!

what on earth is that tweeter eye-patch all about ??

Silly

Still, thank God it's not MF's new speakers otherwise we'd be treated to bull plop about the acoustic benefits of using alloy-x in such a configuration around the tweeter so as to heighten the repsonse of ........ zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Still, no flies on you Gobind

You mean floorstander? Yup FST there.

They don't look much different at all tbh aside from the weird tweeter surround. A little bit 70s.

Got rid of the golf ball port and dimpled baffle as well. I think I prefer the more traditional looks.

Look to be priced very keenly compared to the existing range too.

600 S3 = £200

686 (replacement?) = 225 Euro

601 S3 = £250

685 (replacement?) = 275 Euro

No 602 Replacement

I had a pair of DM603S2's (similar to the 684 I guess) for about three months. Terrible speakers! Crap at low volumes. Too much bass. Not enough treble.

I thought their baby DM303's were much better...

The floorstanding 600 series have never been great unless you just want PA speakers. The standmounts are, however, exceptional for the money.

My brother has the 601 S3's and I think they are the pick of the bunch - the 602's just have too much bass for my liking whilst the floorstanders in the 600 range are just too overpowering.

The offset face plate looks very odd!
