The 683 from Bowers & Wilkins is the prestigious speaker manufacturer's biggest and most impressive loudspeaker in the 600 range. The newly released S2 model of the 683 has improved upon almost every aspect of its predecessor, ranging from sonic capability to a heightened level of aesthetic prowess and style. Utilising a new Decoupled Double Dome Tweeter (similar to the tweeter technology found in Bowers & Wilkins' flag-ship CM10 model), an FST midrange driving unit and newly specialised Dual Layer aluminium bass drivers - the 683 S2 boasts a highly powerful and precisely accurate sound response, to enable the listener to experience every element of their music collection.
The 683 S2 can comfortably and capably perform as a high performance stereo pair for musical listening, or excite even the most demanding of surround-sound applications, even in larger environments. These phenomenally engineered and excellently constructed components, when with the excellent price and beautiful aesthetic nature of the 683 S2 make this model one of B&W's best speakers to date.
