600 Series

Everyone should experience truly great sound. With the 600 Series, everyone can. Combining audio performance, power and price, the 600 Series blends technology from high-end Bowers & Wilkins speakers with engineering solutions unique to the range, to bring the best in audio to everyone. Learn more about 600 Series

True Sound

The 600 Series uses tweeter technology taken from Bowers & Wilkins award-winning CM10 speaker. Double Dome tweeters feature a thin aluminium dome for lightness, surrounded by a thicker aluminium ring for rigidity. 600 Series tweeters are also 'Decoupled' from the cabinet for acoustic independence. The result is treble performance so pure and precise it will take your breath away.

Bass For All

Both the 683 and HTM61 feature improved bass drivers, with a new Dual Layer construction. The result is a cone with a higher break up frequency, for a richer, distortion-free bass response and better integration with the midrange.

 

FST

Our signature “Fixed Suspension Transducer” drivers help Kevlar cones perform even better. FST's innovative 'surroundless' suspension minimises distortion and gives the cleanest midrange performance in the business.

Pristine Audio

Achieving such stellar audio performance, at this price, requires careful design. Tried-and-tested technologies from Bowers & Wilkins' high-end ranges such as the Decoupled Double Dome tweeters are seamlessly integrated with new developments, including new Dual Layer aluminium bass drivers. The result is innovative engineering, superb audio performance and outstanding value.

 

Hi-Fi For All

What else can soothe, invigorate or inspire in the way music can? Bowers & Wilkins believes everyone should experience truly great sound. That's why the 600 Series is designed to suit most uses, homes and budgets. Now everyone can.

Passion For Sound

In a world of streaming, wireless and cloud-based audio, in a world where music has to compete with everything else happening in your life, it matters more than ever that music sounds brilliant. After all, what else can soothe you to sleep, excite and invigorate you, or clear and calm your head to let you think and feel? Cut through the chatter, sit back and really listen... and you’ll see.

 

LP or FLAC

It doesn’t matter where your music comes from. Some prefer classic vinyl, others lossless digital files such as FLAC. All that really matters is how good it sounds to you. With 600 Series speakers, whatever the format, music sounds brilliant.

Home Theatre

The versatile 600 Series isn't just ideal for audiophile stereo listening. Speakers from the range can be combined to form a stunning home theatre surround sound package. And with the 600 Series including a range of speaker sizes, plus centre speakers and subwoofers, it can fill the largest space or fit in the smallest. The 600 Series - home theatre power and performance for all.

 

 

683 Floorstanding Speakers

The 683 S2 features a Decoupled Double Dome tweeter - technology evolved from Bowers & Wilkins CM10 speaker. The double dome design uses an extremely thin aluminium dome for lightness, surrounded by a thicker aluminium ring for rigidity. The result is a far more precise treble performance. And while the tweeter looks like it’s part of the main speaker, it’s physically separated in its own gel-filled cavity, so performance isn’t hit by unwanted resonances or vibrations, for a more natural, spacious sound.

Serious and accurate bass performance is equally vital to such a room-filling speaker. That’s why the 683 S2 features a new bass driver construction method, using a similar method of bracing to the tweeter with twin layers of aluminium. The richer, distortion-free bass response is sumptuous.

As well as new bass driver construction techniques and a new tweeter, brought in from Bower & Wilkins high-end series, the 683 S2 also boasts an FST Kevlar midrange driver. Serious technology, serious performance, but seriously affordable for a speaker of this calibre.
