”B&W hones its award-winning 606 standmounters to great effect.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 award-winner.

Silver star

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 606 Anniversary Edition celebrates its time at the top in style.

Versatile speaker
As a larger standmount speaker, the 606 Anniversary Edition is the perfect size for most UK living rooms. Although not too big for most shelves and cabinets, the 606 is at its best on matching speaker stands. The speakers are easy to position and work well with a wide range of components – showing clear improvements as you trade up.

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 606 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 606 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. The bass is fast-paced and rhythmic, keeping you listening to album after album.

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.

Hear to the heart of your music, with the Bowers & Wilkins 606 Anniversary Edition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Speakers,Great RicherSounds service My HiFi Speakers was delivered in due time. They are just perfect with my Marantz Amplifier. RicherSounds team provided great advise and all needed invoice! Definitely the good place to buy your Hifi System.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from a small speaker I bought these to replace B&W 683 s2 floorstanders, they never sounded great in my room as they had a little too much bass, the 606 sound perfect for my room size and Korean clarity in the treble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific for all music genres Firstly, my thanks to the staff at Richer Sounds Newcastle who gave me all the time in the world to use their demo room and try several speakers. I am an exclusive cd user so I took a selection of my own cds. Classical (my main listening), jazz, rock, pop and world, solo instrumental, acapella vocal, renaissance music etc. Whilst various speakers excelled in certain qualities of sound in some styles of music, it was only the B&W 606's which gave equal quality to all the styles of music; very warm but not muddy, clear with rich audible harmony of instruments, parts and the mix but not with that razor like separation of frequency ( that is not how I like to hear music). Of course, speaker choice is such a personal thing but I recommend giving these a listen alongside their competitors; you may be as pleased as I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful speaker crystal clear sound I bought these speakers to use with a Rotel RA11 Tribute AMP and Rotel Tribute CD11 player, purchased at the same time along with an Auto Technica ATLP3 turntable. The speakers are perfect for this setup I am really pleased with them and the quality sound produced, the sound is so clear and pure whatever style of music you are listening to through them. Great speakers for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product recommendation from Richer Sounds The speakers were purchased to compliment a Marantz system - and I’m more than happy with the performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound great to me Obviously, it's almost impossible to review the experience of listening to something in a meaningful way - everything is a system, and everyone's tastes are individual. These were my first hi-fi speakers, and I was a bit worried - my TV has very good integrated sound, so I was worried that I'd drop a lot of money and then not notice the difference. Thankfully I was extremely wrong. Music and films sound clear and exciting, and I'm very happy with them. I was lucky enough to get them for £500 in the January sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good - but not world beaters. Bought a new Marantz Hifi system to replace my existing Harman / Kardon . Thought that I also needed to replace my beloved Linn speakers at the same time, after all the Bowers and Wilkins 606 S2 Anniversary had a really good write up. Took my time to bed the speakers in (they advise at least ten hours for them to become acclimatized). New speaker wire had also had a "burn in" of 50 hours. My overall impressions (please remember they are my own views and these may differ for each individual and their different levels of hearing). Good Above average sound. High frequency a bit distorted. Not So Good The front grill on the speakers is very flimsy. It is held on by a small magnet and is very, very easily detached. I can imagine some toddler brushing past it, knocking it to the ground and trampling all over it - ouch! For an "index" speaker, they are quite deep which seems quite disproportionate, you get this urge to want to turn them sideways. I'm sure B & W have their reasons, which may be very relevant, but I am only commenting on the general look. Conclusion Overall, I would give them 8/10, but please remember to go and listen to them yourself as you may have a different opinion to mine. Richer Sounds are very good in that they will set up the speakers for you if you give them notice and you can make your own mind up as to their performance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I knew they would be good, but surprised how good. Bought a couple of weeks ago, had some decent advise from the telesales team. It was the B&W’s or the KEF’s at a similar price. Currently hooked up to a slightly asthmatic Cambridge Topaz amp, new AXR85 on back order, should go t another level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, crystal clear and punchy I bought these about a week and a half ago and am amazed at how well these speakers perform. Very clear highs and punchy, balanced base - colourful and room filling sound. For the money probably the best speakers I’ve heard and in my opinion hits above its weight in terms of performance and also a smart looking pair of speakers to boot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new found crispness and clarity! I was in two minds about these speakers due to the amount of cons I'd read about in regard to the sound. I did initially find the sound a bit aggressive especially when wanting to listen to something quieter but once they'd settled in and I'd got my eq levels sorted (the eq requirements for electronic don't work for rock etc) they sound great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound at superb deal price I upgraded to the 606 S2 from my Dali Zensor 3's, another Richer Sounds purchase 6 years ago. The B&W sound is terrific, with great bass, mid range and treble. They sound excellent at low and high volumes. Delighted with the purchase, Richer Sounds brillaint as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exemplary sound from the 606 bookshelf Was apprehensive at first as I have placed these 15cm from the back wall much less than the recommended,however they sound perfect and the detail I’m hearing is incredible (only 6hrs in) previous speakers MA bronze b2 They look incredible with the grills off and understated on ,I’ll agree with other reviewers though the grill magnets are a touch on the weak side ,if you look at them wrong they’ll fall off :) All in all well pleased & Richer sounds delivery was spot on and on the preferred day no problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Speakers, lovely sound. I bought these a week ago after listening to them at the Nottingham branch. A big thank you to Ian for his help. Although I have only played about 8 hours of music through them they are starting to sound really nice, much more detail than my 1990’s Technics speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bowers & Wilkins 606 S2 Anniversary Edition I have brought these speakers and the subwoofer “wasn’t intended” but Yash made an offer I could not refuse. Currently they are still in the box, but Yash demonstrated them in the store and was blown away with the quality paired up with an Sonos G2 amp. Yash was very clear with me and my many questions and answered them perfectly. Really happy with the product and will be opening them up soon as I have stands in place. Highly recommend the Swiss Cottage store and will continue to buy from Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bowers&Wilkins Amazing crisp detailed sound. I am very grateful for the help that Jack gave me. Jack is very knowledgeable. After reading several reviews I went for the Bowers&Wilkins 606 S2 Anniversary Edition. I am thrilled to say they are absolutely fantastic. Warm crisp sound. I also purchased a Cambridge Amp , but sadly that was faulty. But no probs as this was collected with ease. I then went for the Audiolab 6000 A, This arrived next day. Crumbs amazing quality plenty of detailed bass. Very happy indeed.Can’t recommend Richard Sounds enough!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy I chose these over others at this budg level After weeks of research a quick call to the helpful telesales staff confirmed these were the right choice for my recently purchased Audiolab 6000a amplifier over the other options I had shortlisted. So far I am very happy the sound is very clear & detailed mainly used for vinyl listening on my Rega Planar 3 I think as they bed in these will become even better to listen to so far very happy with my choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bowers & Wilkins 606s Speakers I love my new speakers just perfect for my lounge. I am hearing things on my vinyl that I havent before. Fraser in Edinburgh store was fantastic with his advise and help. 5* to him too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality and a top buy! Bought these to replace some ageing Mission stand mounters and wasn't disappointed. Really strong, tightly controlled base extension and a sweet treble with great instrument separation. They deserve good speaker stands (spiked and sand/shot filled) and cables. I found experimenting with speaker positioning (B&W recommend 50cm from the rear wall, mine are at 40cm) and toe-in will reward great stereo imaging while allowing you to 'tune' the base better than the supplied rear port bungs. Good looking and well made. Overall a very satisfied purchase and well worth the expense. Pound for pound, these B&W 606 S2 Anniversary editions are actually a bit of a bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound. Sweet top end, punchy bass. After a year of research I settled on the B&W 606 S2 Anniversary Edition and after a good chat with Dan from Kingston branch I duly ordered, paid and received two days later. Awesome sound. Pairs well with my AVR. Looking forward to running them in and giving them some welly when the neighbours are out. Great service from Richer Sounds. In depth technical knowledge and awesome service. I’ll be back.
