B&W unveils 600 Series speaker range

|




Since 1966, Bowers & Wilkins have made continued technical advancements to design the perfect loudspeaker and in August they brought that heritage to vinyl enthusiasts and movie lovers alike with the new 600 Series. This range turns movie night into an immersive experience, and brings the music you love to life, as if the performer is standing in front of you.

You can hear the engineering excellence and passion, and that is why their speakers are used in leading recording studios around the world, such as the legendary Abbey Road Studios, due to the accuracy they provide. Bowers & Wilkins is a global leader in bringing music and sound to your ears – and your experience – the way it was meant to be heard.

The ground breaking feature of our latest 600 Series is the integration of their cutting-edge Continuum™ cone, which creates layered midrange sound with a pristine soundscape. The human ear is naturally tuned into sound in this frequency, and they’ve understood the power of the perfect midrange presentation for over a generation.

Developed over an eight-year period, the Continuum cone was first featured on their flagship 800 Series Diamond models, including the 800 D3, now in use in Abbey Road Studios. It truly makes your music come alive, delivering the crucial sounds fundamental to any great music experience. The new 600 Series also features their patented and ultra-low-distortion Decoupled Double Dome tweeter to reveal astonishing levels of detail in your music. Whether you immerse yourself in stereo or surround sound, the 600 Series brings you closer to hearing Bowers & Wilkins True Sound.

"The 600 Series is the perfect entry point into the Bowers & Wilkins high-fidelity audio experience," said Richard Campbell, Chief Revenue Officer at Bowers & Wilkins. "The new 600 Series embodies the original ethos of John Bowers' mission to deliver best sound quality and to set new standards for audio performance."

Reviews 

Digital Trends - The performance was immediately impressive, with the new speakers sounding more organic, less coloured, and more accurate, to boot.

Home Theatre Review -  The new 600 Series is the most affordable range to incorporate the remarkable Continuum√§ Cone midrange driver, developed and exclusively manufactured by Bowers & Wilkins to improve upon the transparency and accuracy of the iconic Kevlar cone.

Techradar - It’s a great sounding line-up, and one that’s been long awaited, with Bowers and Wilkins perfecting the build over several years since the launch of the last series. 

Our Verdict - This range is aimed at home cinema enthusiasts as much as for those looking to upgrade stereo systems. The new Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series revealed a smoother, more detailed sound with a broader soundstage. The accuracy is also much better that than their predecessors. A definite MUST from our side!

Monitor Audio Silver 200 Speakers

|


The award winning Silver 200 elevates performance to a new level delivering the best possible sound. The Silver 200’s sleek appearance makes it a truly compact and attractive floorstander, blending audiophile performance with lifestyle proportions. A pair of Monitor Audio’s unique 5¼-inch C-CAM bass drivers share the duties of delivering bass and mid/bass. Configured as a two-and-a-half way system both electrically and acoustically, you will be amazed at the magical sound quality that this slimline can produce in your home.

The two bass drivers operate in separate acoustic chambers within the enclosure to provide differential tuning and are divided optimally with crossovers to ensure both bass drivers contribute to the lower frequencies. This ensures only the mid-range crosses over with the tweeter and results in a consistent and precise image, on and off axis. This configuration delivers performance approaching a three-way design whilst ensuring higher efficiency and extended low frequency, yet in a smaller cabinet.

The drive units are constructed with massive magnetic systems capable of deep bass extension. The low-frequency response has been engineered to provide smooth roll-off without exhibiting any of the usual ‘overhang’, meaning that the Silver 200 can be sited close to a wall and provide the ideal blend of domesticity and blazing performance. Diminutive for a floorstander, this model is no slouch. The Silver 200 is a serious audiophile speaker with amazing drive and incredible musicality. The engineering challenge was to create a smaller box with bigger sound; with the Silver 200, Monitor Audio achieves that goal so that you can enjoy your music and films with convincing realism.

Highlights

  • Two-and-a-half-way, three-driver configuration
  • Differentially-tuned acoustic system means high efficiency with powerful low-frequency extension
  • New 25mm C-CAM, (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) tweeter featuring vented Neo magnet system optimised for lower distortion and cleaner sounding highs
  • New 5¼-inch bass and 5¼-inch bass/mid drivers with ‘dished’ C-CAM cone profile for better damping and improved mid-range clarity
  • RST Cone profile for improved diaphragm rigidity and lower distortion
  • Unique-build ring/voice coil-cone coupling mechanism (DCF) optimised to reduce high-frequency cone break-up and increasing the critical voice coil circumferential rigidity
  • Cast polymer driver chassis design for improved rigidity and damping characteristics
  • HiVe II port technology means better transient response and tighter bass, due to smoother airflow
  • Pureflow silver-plated OFC copper internal cabling for the highest quality transfer through the signal chain
  • High-quality crossovers utilising premium grade, bespoke polypropylene film capacitors, air-core and low-loss laminated steel-core inductors results in maximum signal transfer
  • Rigid 20 mm MDF construction utilising scientifically optimised cabinet bracing
  • Single bolt-through driver technology providing increased bracing strength, rigidity and driver/baffle de-coupling
  • Ultra low-profile grilles featuring invisible magnetic grille fixings for clean visual styling when fitted
  • High-quality crossovers with premium-grade polypropylene film capacitors throughout
  • Bespoke, high quality bi-wire terminals
  • Terminal panel located at floor level for easy termination and neat cable access
  • Out-rigger feet (spiked, or rubber for hard flooring) provide attractive appearance while taking up less floor space

S&I Verdict - The Monitor Audio Silver 200 is a serious audiophile speaker with amazing drive and incredible musicality. It is an elegant floorstanding loudspeaker that sounds as good as it looks. You will begin to rediscover your music and film collection as you’ve never heard it before.
