Thoughts on B&W DM601
 
Hi A guy up the road from me is selling a pair of Bowers & wilkins DM601 series 2 speakers for $275. There in good condition apart from the tweeters on both are slightly dented, small chip in the veneer and don't come with grill covers. Is $275 a good deal? I haven't listened to them yet but i was told there working fine.

On E-Bay you can generally get 602 S3's for about 100 so that would seem a bit steep especially if they are damaged.

Of course they might not be so plentiful Down Under, but do have a look on E-Bay for comparative pricing.

A good deal is normally considered when both sides come
to an understanding regarding price. I can't possibly know
what you'd consider to be fair in this matter.

I can only tell you what I would do. Try to find out original cost
of the speakers when these were introduced on the market.
Secondly, the condition of the item you are interested in, matters.
If we assume these boxes to be more than 10 years old with the
dents and chip you mentioned and if drivers were never cooked,
I'd be offering up to 25 % of original price.

Hi thanks for replying, i made a mistake they are actually dm602 s3. its just the aluminium tweeter dust cap that is damaged. I just bought a pair of pioneer BS22 and although they sound great there not real good at lower volume and there isn't much bass. would the B&W's be a big improvement or should i just keep the pioneers? i was planning to offer him $200 for them

Bowers would certainly be an improvement over Pioneer.
4" bassmid in BS22 is not a real bass player. Listen to them
before buying. Check the dc resistance with a multimeter
to see how consistent is one box to the other. Just touch
the terminals.

Honestly I would cap at 185 bsc u can get a better deal on eBay plus the damaged tweeter would make me a bit nervous
