Details


The Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series is a bit of a star. Every edition since it first appeared has swept up rave reviews and product of the year awards, and trumped expectations of performance and design from speakers in the affordable price range. This, the fourth generation of the B&W 600 Series, features improved drive units, minimalist crossovers and a whole new design

For hi-fi or home cinema in small to medium-sized rooms, you need a loudspeaker that doesn't take up floor area, but whose sound can still command the space. You'll find the B&W 685 speakers, which can sit on a shelf, table, stand or wall-mount, an inspired choice.

Its 165mm diameter Kevlar® cone bass/midrange is based on a tried-and-trusted B&W design, but its new fixed centre bullet helps to smooth the response in upper frequencies. Also, by setting the bass/midrange closer to the tweeter than in equivalent earlier speakers, B&W have improved the integration and vertical dispersion of sound from the two units. The Nautilus™ tube-loaded, aluminium dome tweeter, featuring a new surround material to improve spaciousness and imaging, adds needle-sharp top end all the way to 50 kHz and beyond.

The improvements to the drive units in the new Bowers and Wilkins 600 Series make it possible, for the first time, to introduce a minimalist crossover to the range. The use of components that are fewer in number but higher in quality - hand-picked in exhaustive listening tests - reduces the degradation of the signal significantly. So, whether you're enjoying hi-fi or home cinema, what you hear is that much closer to what was recorded.

Visually, a refreshed, contemporary design language and a widened choice of wood finishes allow the B&W 685 to fit in effortlessly with any interior.
