Details

The B&W 683 S2 were annouced by B&W in February 2014 as the replacement for the B&W 683 speakers. Featuring an improved tweeter along with other design refinements the overall sound is an improvement. It's not a massive uplift, but it's a nice refresh of the 600 Series range, and a timely one too as the old series was beginning to show its 6 years of age.

There's been some changes to the look and feel as part of this update and we prefer them. The changes are subtle but they give a less boxy feel to the look of the speakers, and they've also rolled the ever popular white finish out over the entire range.

These speakers are at the top end of the 600 Series range and are three way floorstanders designed to give you massive presence and power, coupled with the capability of reaching volume whilst maintaining control. They are ideal for larger room where there is plenty of space around the speakers. This will enable them to deliver a clear bass sound. They also partner well with strident and forward amplifiers - think Cyrus or Rotel as opposed to Rega.

The speakers contain two aluminium, paper and Kevlar composite cone bass drive units as well as a 150mm Kevlar midrange and B&W's own Nautilus tube loaded aluminium domed tweeter contained within a veneered wooden cabinet that comes with an optional black cloth grille.

We do like these speakers and we're sure you will too. Why not get in touch on 0845 5577 335 and ensure you get the very best deal on them?
