System requires high-performance subwoofer and bass management, Speakers need detailed setup to sound their best, System requires AVR or power amp capable of driving 4-ohm loads, Expensive (although not for what you get), Dipole surround speakers not...

The music soundtrack for Transformers, mentioned earlier, impressed me the most of all the of all the movies I auditioned on the B&Ws. I'm not part of the Transformer generation, but I'm more than willing to accept odd science fiction plots if they are...

While its product range includes some of the most expensive loudspeakers on the market, B&W has always worked hard to bring as much of its advanced technology as possible to more affordable designs. And the new 600 Series goes further in that regard...

This is overall a Great speaker, i couldn't believe the clarity and consistency of this speaker and this brand. These are the 600 series basically the bottom of the poll. You have the CM series and the 800 Diamond series. These are amazing and the best...

Biwired 683's into Rotel RC-1580 pre and RB-1582 amp. The synergy between the B and W 's and Rotel pieces go together nice. Use to own Kef tower speakers and found the B and W to be a much smoother sounding speaker compairing the 2 with the Rotel...

This is my second review of these beautiful speakers( sound & visual). Since I've owned them I've moved into a house that has a listening room just right for these speakers. 12' X 25' room that just lets them breathe. Currently I have Rotel seperates...

Six months ago I got a good deal on the 684, my first "real" speakers. After reading MANY reviews and obsessing over my perhaps too hasty purchase, I made the decision to upgrade, partly because I was kicking myself for not originally shelling out the...

On a recent trip to audition some speakers, I came across the Totem Arros ($1195) and I was shocked at how small they actually were. I must say that the finsh on them was excellent, and if you haven't ever seen a Totem in person, they make very...

Good bass for a speaker this size, mid-range and highs are smooth and detailed

The sound stage was too narrow for my tastes

Way overpriced. I can think of about 30 speakers for the same money or less than these muddy sounding, Chinese made items.
