B&W 686 review


Good, attractive, detailed speakers, but they lack the five-star sparkle of their bigger brothers

Quality of build and finish ; good looks ; rich, cosseting sound

Overstuffed bass means tempos plod ; safety-first approach isn’t the most thrilling

Admirable in many of the usual B&W ways, but the 686s’ lack of agility and dominant bass mean there are better ways to spend your money
