"These compact stand mount speakers work well either on a dedicated stand or on a bookshelf. We find they work well with mini systems

but you could also partner with a quality separate amplifier. Better suited to small or medium rooms."

Product Description

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 686 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 are the smallest speakers in the range, and we think are ideal for when you don't want to stand mount but want to stick them on a shelf or bracket. They work well without too much space needed around them. Try them with a good quality mini system for a sound system that is both compact and sounds great.
