Sta nd - mount/Bookshelf loudspeaker syst em

Product Summary

The DM602 S2 is a 2-wayvented-boxsystem with a woven Kevlar® cone bass/mid

driver which virtually eliminates distortions caused by radial waves travelling back and forth

along the cone. The aluminium dome tweeter produces amazing open sound.

The high quality cabinets are attractively finished in a choice of Black Ash or Cherry vinyl

In common with all other models the grey baffle, moulded in mica-filledpolypropylene,

forms a second layer to the wooden baffle adding stiffness and damping.

A review from What Hi-Fi(July 1999) underpinned our belief in the speaker with comments

including, "providing a fantastic level of refinement in a medium sized box and having

enough bass weight and control to satisfy those into rock and dance. Great all-rounders

and an excellent buy”.
