Hey, where are the frequency responses of 603s? Why have you stopped with showing us those?

I second that. One of the things I enjoyed the most about reading your articles were the measurements.

They stopped testing amps, and now speakers?!

wonder how the htm6 center compares to the htm61 s2, given that the latter is a 3-way speaker

I paired the 700 series center channel with the 603 series towers. I liked the way the center channel, paired with the 603's, sounded in a 5.1 surround sound home theater set up. That said, while playing a movie, the 600 series center channel sounded bright, present and easily heard paired with the 603's in the store...I opted for a 12" Rel sub for LFE. For my set up, I had to use the receiver (230 watts/channel) to give about a +3 to the center channel to optimize the audibility of dialogue while playing movies. My plan is to eventually purchase 700 series towers for the front channels, and use the 603's as rear channels (one reason why I opted for the 700 series center channel) I will then use the rear channel speakers as Atmos speakers for a 5.1.2 set up.
Comments, advice and constructive criticism are welcome!

Hi, I thought about doing the same combination, how is it going for you?
