Default B&W Bowers and Wilkins DM305 ++

This is used pair of EISA award wining DM 302 speakers "older brother" DM 305 speaker. Those speakers are well maid with solid B&W sound with prism cabinet system. Worm and neutral with solid bass and great price this was one of the great selling range with great price/performance ratio. The 61/2 in drive unit has formed wave spoilers, which minimize standing waves, and produces a clean neutral mid range. The front firing slotted port supplemented by the rear firing port increases bass depth and power and the tweeter is mounted in a low diffraction face plate for cleaner treble sound. All these technologies culminate in a well balanced floor standing speakers at a very affordable price which is equally suited to a Hi-Fi or Home Cinema set-up. Original price was ~450$

Upgrade :

Speakers wiring and crossovers are completely upgraded with high quality parts. Modifications include 5% polypropylene audio capacitors with high quality ultra pure solid copper wiring. All this resulted in more clear and detailed sound with extensive and jet controlled bass, worm and neutral mids and faster and hi-res highs. Cabinet was also additionally damped to provide stability and isolation for 6 1/2" midbas driver. All this overcame some of the construction limits and improved the overall sound almost double by every mean. Dynamics, sound-stage and transparency in great details. With high sensitivity those speakers are good for tube and solid state amps. They are perfect for budget A systems or B system either stereo or 5.1/7.1. If you are looking for reasonably priced and great sounding speakers, they are here. They show some signs of use ( minor scratches and marks on box). Look is 8/10 and sound is 10/10 for the price. Returns are accepted, however if you take some time to listen them you will be aware of the real value.
