Entry level Audiophile speakers


Amazing detail and clarity. In fact, the best I've heard at this price point. My wife and I were not happy with our Polk Monitor 70 towers. At first I thought it was my receiver (I own the Yamaha R-S 700). At 100 watts per channel it fed more than...

Amazing sound quality and detail

At this price point real wood instead of vinyl laminate would be nice

Wall of sound.


I got lucky. Someone returned my set. Probably because they didn't measure or the wife said no way, not in my living room. I got these for $399 each open box. You can't say no! I'm feeding them with a Pioneer Elite SC-65. Sounds amazing. I will say...

Good, but better available at thisprice point


My second attempt with B&W, and returned for the 2nd time. There is simply better speakers at this price. Ended up with Monitor Audio RX-8. Better everything. Maybe in coupke of years will try B&W again.About me... Audiophile, Tech savvy

Design, b&w brand

Look at monitor audio for better sound at the same price

Worth every penny!


I had been auditioning a lot of speakers. I did a A/B comparison with Bose 901, their Flagship Stereo Speakers with this B&W 683. Although a lot of people from the audiophile community bash Bose, I wanted to give a shot at the Bose 901 and connected it...

Gold standard in sound quality

None that I know of

They don't take up space and look great,and they have multiple connections on the back so I can branch off them
