    But have also two midrange broken completely.

    You are only the one that you can give me new midranges: if you wanti it.
    Like a father that knows where his sons they are now.
    S.O.S. (save our souls…. by correct music!)

    Dear Franco,

    Many thanks for your comment. Unfortunately we no longer manufacture parts for DM6. Have you tried searching locally for a company that can recondition the old units.

    We’re glad you have had many years great service from your DM6s and that we are sure our current models will be worthy replacements if you can’t get your units repaired.

    Sorry we are unable to help any further.
    Kind regards

    Susanna
    Bowers & Wilkins
