Dear friends,

Kindly suggest me a matching center either B&W HTM61 S2 or HTM62 S2 which suits for my B&W 685 S2 bookshelves setup. My room size is 16*12. Price of HTM62 S2 is less expensive compared to that of HTM61 S2. Will HTM62 be adequate for my movie experience.

Cheers
Srikar

Hi

Which AVR are you using to drive these speakers? Also have you considered the CM series?

One is a B&W HTM61 S2 3-way design and the B&W HTM62 S2 is a 2-way design. Hence the price differential.
If budget is not an issue, go for the bigger one. The price difference may not justify HTM61.
But then if you are the kind who does not upgrade very often, bigger one may be right for you.
In terms of drive-ability, HTM61 may be easier on your AVR as it has 2 aluminum cones and 1 Kevlar cone as compared to 2 Kevlar cones on HTM62.

Cheers,
Raghu
