B&W 603 Floorstanding Speaker (Pair) Black
The floorstanding speaker in the new 600 Series from Bowers & Wilkins brings pristine sound to your home. The flagship 603 speaker features their award-winning Continuum™ cone technology, which creates a pure and precise soundscape. Developed over an eight-year period and first featured on their flagship 800 Series Diamond models, the Continuum cone has been integrated into the sixth generation of the critically acclaimed 603 to transform the performance you expect from an entry-level speaker. The 603 features the proven Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, with a re-engineered assembly for better performance. B&W's improved paper bass cones combine effortless power and endless low-end with the precision and low-distortion accuracy you’d expect from Bowers & Wilkins. But the new 603 speaker isn’t just about cleaner sound – it boasts a cleaner look, too. They removed grille pegs and replaced them with magnets, while moving the port to the rear cabinet, creating a modern and premium aesthetic, wrapped with a matte finish. Fill your home with beautiful Bowers & Wilkins sound.
The B&W 603 speakers deliver a highly entertaining sound. A lively treble grabs your ear and gives a good pace to the music, while notes stop and start with snappy precision, which only helps keep your toes tapping.The crisp clarity in the treble, and across the spectrum, gives the 603s real energy and drive.The Bowers & Wilkins 603 offers better dynamics and deeper bass than most speakers its size.
The 603 delivers a convincingly proportioned soundstage populated with believably scaled musicians and instruments. It’s a presentation that marries body and weight with supple speed and agility and the ability to sustain a lovely rich, natural tonality and properly nuanced dynamic contrasts as the volume is pushed towards party levels. The new Continuum mid/bass driver is chiefly responsible for their crisp sound, but other aspects of the speaker's design, such as the crossover network and construction of the cabinet, surely deserve some of the credit, too.
