No stock at KEC and Monsoon...

If you want HTM62 (centre), Mansoon has it in stock

KEC expects stock by end Feb or first week of March.... Have already paid a deposit to KEC for "booking" my speakers (685's and HTM62)... now the wait beings :)  ::)

Hifiluv & DJQ, will keep you guys posted once I get the speakers and set them up... I am sure 685's should be enough for my room but I also have plans to get the B&W floorstanders later so I can just move the 685's as sorround :)

Monsoon 's no longer the agent...the new agent calls themselves the "EXPERTS "...no sure wat they are expert in if they are just selling B&W speakers ...not BMW cars !

anyway...the delivery looks like it's gonna be delayed again...more like end March now !

Read a review about the 683 and there seems to be a problem with timbre matching with the center speaker. Not sure if this applies to the 685 but you should have a listen first.

Hi,

I own a pair of this speakers, outlook of this pair of speakers was not that nice, but it's sound sweet & the bass are good,  so far this speaker did not give me any problem.
