B&W DM6 Speakers [Expired]


no longer for sale

A pair of vintage B&W loudspeakers model DM6. I have owned these for thirty years. They were "state of the art" in 1976. They sound as good now as they did when I got them which is transparent, detailed, neutral, with extended range. In other words very good. If you want to know more about these just Google them. If you bought something as good as these new, today you would have to spend over $1,500 and you still wouldn't have the low frequency response that these have. They are large: 16"Wx36"Hx15"D. Yes, to get deep bass you shall have a large enclosure. I have made some minor modifications to them. 1. I replaced the thin internal wires with more robust ones. 2. I hard-wired the tone controls on the three drivers to single, neutral positions, thus removing the switches from the circuit. The switches are still mounted on the exterior but are non-functional. 3. I split the input at the crossover into two inputs, one to the bass driver, the second to the mid/treble drivers so that they could be bi-amped or bi-wired using the existing passive crossover. The input connectors come with bridging strips to cancel the internal change that I did if you don't want to feed these with two inputs. By the way, with two matched amplifiers these speakers are awesome. The cosmetic condition of the speakers is "not so bad after 36 years." Say 5/10. The pictures give a pretty good idea of their condition. The stands have a fewsmall scratches, hardly noticeable. The sides are in very good shape. One of the tops has a water stain. The grilles have no dents but the covers are worn and have some stains. I don't want to do "auditions" with these speakers but if you are a serious buyer I will demonstrate them to prove that they are functional with absoulutely no problems. I will not ship these, you must pick them up Greenbrae CA. They weigh about 80 lbs each.
