Bowers and Wilkins B&W 685 S2: Serious sound, superb value

 

The Bowers and Wilkins 685 S2 bookshelf speakers offer excellent sound quality in an attractive, stand-mountable package. Their versatile sound can handle both music and movies well. The redesigned tweeter offers better insight into recordings without...

Bass could go deeper; somewhat uninspiring looks.

Whether you listen to death metal or nature documentaries, the Bowers and Wilkins B&W 685 S2s are an astoundingly good set of speakers and an excellent deal at this price level.

B&W 600 Series Speaker System and Onkyo TX-SR805 A/V Receiver

 

One of the home theater industry's greatest sins is modesty. If excessively modest people hide their lights under a bushel, speaker and receiver manufacturers go them one better, hiding their achievements in boxes. Boxes with drivers on the front,...

Because the 685 and crew have a fair amount of bass, they don't need a huge subwoofer for bass reinforcement. Thus, the review system used the ASW608, a space-saving mini-sub with a single 8-inch driver. I hoisted it onto my desk (not something I do...

B&W ASW608 review

 

We get to grips with the smallest B&W woofer we've ever seen...

Astonishing grip and musical low-end control for one so small ; Beautifully made

Limited by its size ; Will make complaining noises if overdriven

Small but perfectly formed, this subwoofer will pleasantly exceed your expectations

B&W ASW608

 

Construction is excellent as is the finish. Rubber and Spikes both provided. The back offers a host of ways to configure and setup over tonal control. The bass is wonderfully accurate, tight without being overbearing. The 8" paper/Kevlar long-throw...

Never been disappointed with B&W speakers and ....

 

I bought this to replace my current sub (which has served our home cinema very well). I was blown away by the precision and the magnitude that this baby 6 series sub creates. The customer service received from the Richer Sounds guys are fantastic as...

Transformed my surround sound system

 

Bought this as an upgrade to my Tannoy subwoofer. Wow, what a difference this B&W sub has made. If you listen to a lot of surround sound music, then this sub is well worth an audition. The amplifier in this sub is excellent and has greatly enhanced my...

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Really good sound, some much detail

 

Bought a couple of weeks back but just managed to get it installed today. The detail in the sound is amazing though the Accu Tune in the Onkyo AV receiver made a mess of the crossover frequencies, setting them far to low. Once adjusted manually to...
