For over 25 years, the Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series has constantly been at the top of its class for sound quality and value. Featuring improved drive units, revised crossover electronics and a smart new aesthetic, the 603 Anniversary Edition celebrates its time at the top in style.
As the largest speakers in the 600 Series Anniversary Edition, the 603s are ideal for larger rooms. With their wide frequency response and deep bass, they also make the perfect speakers for listening to everything from stadium rock to full-scale Classical music. Add centre and smaller speakers from the 600 Anniversary Edition and create a mind-blowing home cinema speaker system – with matched tonality right the way around your room.
Crystal-clear treble – made better
Using an upgraded neodymium magnet and other components from the 700 Series, the revised tweeter unit is better than ever. The 603 Anniversary Edition continues with Bowers & Wilkins’ acclaimed Decoupled Double Dome tweeter design. The top end now reaches a higher range before breakup – giving improved harmonics, less distortion and improved detail. Whatever type of music you listen to, the 603 Anniversary Edition sounds more lifelike than ever.
Continuum mid-range cone for incredible realism
First developed for Bowers & Wilkins flagship 800-series, the Continuum woofer design shows exceptional ability for this class of speaker. The highly developed design helps deliver class-leading vocals that makes the singers sound as though they’re in the room with you. As this driver is dedicated to the mid-range, you’ll hear even more detail than on the smaller models.
The power to impress – now with revised woofers
With not one but two, improved bass cones per speaker, the 603 Anniversary Edition delivers a deep, powerful bass. As this is a 3-way speaker, the woofers are dedicated to bass, meaning they can concentrate on the bottom end of business, without having to reproduce critical mid-range information, such as vocals. In effect, this means they act as a separate subwoofer, pulling down the bass to window-rattling levels. The revised paper cones offer a faster and punchier bass than before.
Detailed improvements inside for even better sound
It’s not just what you can see that makes these speakers so special, it’s what you can’t see, too. Using the same capacitors as deployed on Bowers and Wilkins’ prestigious 700 Series Signature model, these speakers now offer greatly improved resolution and transparency. This promotes a greater connection with your music, for an emotional connection.
Class-leading style, perfected
Already a slick-looking speaker, the new 600 Series Anniversary Edition enhances its appeal and offers a brand new finish. As well as matte black and matte white, a new oak finish with matte white baffle is also available.
With the power to impress, the Bowers & Wilkins 603 Anniversary Edition makes every track a performance to remember.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dl75 from Real depth and solidity to sound Bought these speakers fairly recently, having looked at a number of options. Needed something with sufficient energy to fill a rather large room and these do not disappoint. The clarity and increased bass has enhanced my listening of different media from phono, CD, radio, tape and AV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stanio from Great sound I purchased the Bowers only 2days ago but I’m already pleased with them. Big thank you to Levi at the Leicester store for his help and patience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by robtherunner from Lush and warm Combined with the sub-woofers, these floor standers sound even better in my home environment. They deliver a beautifully balanced sound throughout the frequency ranges and when given some bottom end to deliver they present it clearly and perfectly balanced. I've yet to test them out a higher volumes as for now they're delivering sound that's such a delight and makes for an enjoyable listening experience to rediscover music once again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jaguar75 from HI-FI SOUND AT ITS BEST. Lovely sounds from these elegant oak 4-way speakers. Previous speakers were also B&W floor standing although very good the latest 603 edition offer even more quality and the stereo fills across the whole stage width from left to right with no empty center gap I am very happy with them; (so is my wife because they look so good; thankgoodness).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Esien4 from Underwhelmed I bought these speakers a couple of weeks ago. Just got them connected to Cambridge Audio's CXA81 amp and using their ALVA TT turntable. Somewhat underwhelmed by the sound - the bass is rather thin. Happy to get suggestions as to what I might do to improve the sound. Bob Marley is not sounding as I would expect of a clean vinyl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve 45 from Everything speakers should be and more After months of trying lots of different speakers these where the easy winners. I tried q acoustics, monitor audio silver, kef q, klipsch reference premier. They all had individual great qualities but all missing something. These are around the same price apart from the floorstanders but they have the best qualities of all the above and more. They have the dynamics of the klipsch, detail of the kefs, modern looks of the q acoustics in white and build quality of monitor audios but even more so in all areas. Sound is totally balanced through the whole frequency range especially using matching asw608 subs. Incredibly detailed. Voices are natural. Bass isn't crazy but balanced and fast. Built quality is outstanding! They look even better in person. Love these. Perfect for music and movies.
