Bowers & Wilkins have a long history of producing some of the finest speakers in the world. In recent years they have diverged into home theatre with great success, but they still produce some classic stereo speakers too. All their modern stereo speaker ranges have been designed to work within a home theatre system too, so whatever your need you should find a speaker to suit.

The B&W 685 is part of the 600 Series, Bowers & Wilkins entry level range of stereo speakers. This range comprises of a choice of different floorstanding and stand mount speakers as well as a centre and a choice of three different theatre systems that can be constructed from speakers within the series.

These speakers are the largest stand mounts in the range and are very well suited if you want a bigger sound without the inconvenience of a large floor stander. Ideally we'd still say stand mount these speakers, but they can also be shelf mounted as long as particular attention is given to making space around the speakers so that they can project bass at their best.

They partner well with hifi systems but you could also use them with a decent mini system - as long as they pack a little power.
