”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 SUPERB Having seen all the excellent reviews and having had conversations with the friendly staff at Richer Sounds at Plymouth i purchased a pair of B&W 606 S2.They arrived safely and on time yesterday evening and this morning i set them up with my Audio Cambridge CXA61 amplifier and matching CXC transporter. I can only say that i am astonished at the performance of these compact loudspeakers that have replaced my Monitor Audio Bronze 2. Straight out of the boxes they are superb , immense clarity ,smooth base extension great imagery just fantastic. Also no problem at all close to the rear wall ,no booming just smooth tight bass definition.I cannot fault them and feel that they will give me great musical pleasure for many years to come. A great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great products, prices, and after sales support Bought a new hifi setup through Richer Sounds and was thoroughly impressed by their prices, delivery times, and support after I messed up part of my order. Would definitely recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from B&W 606 S2 - amazing Bought a few weeks ago and been listening every day. Initially bought to pair up with my TT as they’ve been touted as great vinyl speakers but they are just amazing with everything I play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Speakers I have been using the speakers for three weeks now and wow. They are amazing. Everyone has a different experience with speakers as we are all different so I suggest going to your local store and auditioning before purchase. Be careful with what drives them, I found that with a Cambridge Audio Amp these were struggling to be driven at lower volumes as there was no definition. With a Denon AVR-X2700H, I could lower the volume to a whisper and there was almost all definition. In comparison to other speakers I auditioned, these were very similar to other stand mount speakers. I found the treble to be more forward on these. It was when I auditioned them in a different room against KEF Q550's where I saw the most differences. Most of the stand mounts sounded like all the sound was concentrated in a single point between the speakers. The KEF's (floor standing) was a wall of sound which was very impressive. However, they (KEF Q550's) could not hold a candle to the B&W's in terms of Bass or Treble. I was smiling ear to ear when we swapped over and immediately concluded the B&W's were the ones for me. The finish on these looks way better in real life than online. The final point is usage: I use these either for streaming music through the Denon or watching TV/playing games with an Xbox One. They have given outstanding sound from games, we are hearing things we never heard before. I have only had one video (Groundhog day on Amazon Prime) where we had to swap back to the TV speakers. This was because the voices were so soft compared to the rest it was not listenable. I would put this down to the movie sound engineering because everything else I have watched (these have been used for 24 days straight) has been incredible. When working from home I sit almost 1m to the left of the left speaker and almost in line with the front. Even in that seating, they are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A taste of the high end for budding audiophiles. I bought these and paired them with a Cyrus One HD and am absolutely delighted. They present a glorious 3D soundstage, clear top, middle and bass. They bounce along with great timing and separation. I've heard complaints about them being a bit bright...what's really going on is if the recording is flawed or the amp isn't in control they will tell you all about it. That's what I want them to do, no hiding places for the material. Carefully feed them the right source though and to coin a cliché "it's like the band are in the room". A word on the bass. It's excellent for Jazz, rock etc. but if you're into dub it won't shake the earth. I paired mine with a big old 12" sub woofer that I set to only kick in below 40Hz...the wubwub is amazing! That said, for normal hi fidelity listening you'll be grand with just these (so will your neighbours). I honestly love them! P.S. They are BIG so bear that in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sound that belies their modest size. I bought these as a treat as I haven't had a decent hifi for many years and miss being able to just sit and listen to music immersed in the pool of sound. These Bowers and Wilkins speakers do not disappoint, lots of clarity and separation and a deep bass, they have transformed my compact stereo and I can now experience many songs to a new level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp sound! Bought this last week and really enjoy the sound from these. Currently paired with a Denon dra800h. Quite a warm sound with this pairing. Definitely hearing things in the music that I've never heard before. I am using Spotify connect over wi-fi as my main source. Highs are the standout, being sharp and precise. The mids I've found to be a bit on the warm side so I'm going to demo another amp and see what the difference is. Bass is strong and big enough to fill a small to medium sized room. Even at loud volumes, these speakers seem to stay clear. Low volume listening is also fine. If it's a bad quality recording it definitely brings out the imperfections listening to these. I've noticed live recordings sound particularly good! Feels like you're actually there if you crank up the volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In creditable detail and balance. Have been using these for a mouth now so they are well run in. The tonal balance is just incredible along with the detail. Very pleased indeed
