Bowers and Wilkins 606 review: Is the entry-level B&W still a good value?

 

The Bowers and Wilkins 606 bookshelves offer bucketfuls of resolution and bass power, but they're not as system-friendly as previous 600-series speakers.

The Bowers and Wilkins 606 offers better dynamics and deeper bass than most speakers its size. Its clear sound adds insight into well-recorded music and punch to movies, particularly at high volume. The new silvery Continuum driver and domed driver...

With the wrong system the speakers can sound too bright, and it's not the best speaker for so-called "badly recorded" music. A price increase over the previous model pushes it into a different class of speakers, but the finish doesn't correspond.

The Bowers and Wilkins 606 bookshelves offer bucketfuls of resolution and bass power, but they're more expensive and not as versatile as their predecessors.

Very impressed so far.

 

The depth of the bass reproduction is hard to believe out such a size cabinet sometimes. They're only just run in so only going to improve further. The top end detail is so clear and I love the minimal look. Running of a Cambridge CXA80, seem to match...
