    I purchased these speakers to act as rear surrounds to blend with the front 685s and center HTM-61 center. Great compliment to my system. Looking to add the B&W sub to complete my 5.2 system. I have these for almost two years now.

    Sound quality

    These speakers are for my turntable setup and I must say, these rock! Before I received my turntable, I was testing these out with Bluetooth and the sound was pure gold. Even though YouTube has crappy sound quality with a lot of their videos, but these speakers still put on a great show. Once I got my Fluance turntable, these were meant to be together. I love these speakers and I don't regret buying them at all! Worth getting!

    Wonderful Speakers

    Price, Sound quality, Space
    Cons mentioned:
    Luxury

    These speakers are really amazing. I will be honest and say I bought these with the full intention of trying them against other speakers and then returning them. I have tried 5 other pairs of high end speaker against them, and none can beat them. I truly cannot bring myself to return these for something else. I generally do not buy speakers from stores due to markups that happen along the way. Internet Direct companies generally offer much better bang for your buck as they don't have the overhead cost. They can still make money while putting more money into the speaker and less into advertising. However, these just do not fall prey to that. They are warm, engaging, open, detailed, and fill the room with sound. I tend to get listener fatigue quite easy, and these have never gave me any grief. They are great for all music, and great for movies as well. They will play quite low, so you don't absolutely need a subwoofer. To me they are the best overall bargain from B&W. The 607's are tiny, and don't even come close to the 606. The only other one I almost went with are the 707 S2. They are awesome, but not quite worth $400 more than the 606. Money no object I would love to have the 702 or 705, but they are out of my range for now. Overall, I could not be happier with these speakers. I will be a B&W owner for life now.

    Enjoy the speakers. Was running a pair of old Dynaco's. The only problem is you will buy the B&O sub woofer next! B&W are in Abbey Road and in Jaguar's over the years, so they are worth at least a try.

    Pros mentioned:

    Cons mentioned:
    Luxury

    These speakers occupy an interesting price point: well above the "budget audiophile" level, but below the $1,500 commanded by KEF LS 50s and other entry mid-level speakers. As such, they are reasonably priced, as they definitely perform above the $500 level but don't quite reach the LS 50s in sound quality. I have mine connected now to my Pioneer VSX-LX503 as the "Zone 2" speakers for listening to music on the "Pure Direct" setting. I find this to be a nice pairing; some amplifiers can give the speakers a little too much brightness, but the Pioneer works well. I know that these speakers have been replaced by the Anniversary Version 2, and they are supposed to be better, but I have not heard them Pros: Clarity, Imaging, Separation, "High-end sound" Cons: Can be too bright at times If these fit your budget and your sound preferences, they are definitely winners.

    Perfect speakers to compliment my system. I placed them on a shelf pretty high in the room. They came alive when I did the system set up with the receivers microphone.

    Pros mentioned:
    Bass, Price, Sound quality

    These replaced a pair of Sonos Play 5 Series 2's. There really is not comparison as these are an audiophile speaker and the Play 5's are not, and I am pushing them with a receiver, but across the entire spectrum these have more clarity, definition and bass. I am using these with a Yamaha Rn-803 stereo amp and a Martin Logan sub. They only need the sub for the lower registers, I have then crossed over at 60 Hz. They have such a nice, sparkling treble and smooth mid-range. I've listened to everything from classical to metal, from classic rock to jazz, and they have not disappointed. I do not have them mounted on stands, they sit on shelves that I have around my TV. You can definitely hear the minute details that can be more difficult to hear on average speaker. They are not harsh in any way, especially after break-in. I've got about 30 hours on them now and they sound quite a bit better than straight out of the box. I have them wired with Rocket 11 cabling, I did not bother bi-wiring them as they sound perfectly fine single-wired. A great little investment, able to get a quality set of B & Ws for a relatively economical price. Highly recommended!

    Pros mentioned:
    Bass, Price, Sound quality

    Incredibly precise and detailed sound, not overly warm. Surprisingly good bass response, but never boomy. The tweeters are absolutely phenomenal, and make these into very special speakers. I auditioned these and ELAC Unif-Fi 5s at the same time, and the B&Ws were much more precise and detailed. I'm using these with an old ADCOM amp and Onkyo preamp, and they are nothing short of amazing. I listen to a big variety of music, from classical to jazz to punk rock, and these have handled it all wonderfully. Also great at all volumes, from very quiet to inappropriately loud. This was very important to me as the setting they are in mandates quiet listening much of the time. Remarkably good speakers, well worth the money.

    Pairing, Sound quality

    I was going to buy a pair of Bowers & Wilkins 607s, but watched a review online talking about how the 607s were good, but the 606s so were much better, I took a chance! Well, it’s true. I am so glad I was able to step up to the 606s. I have a restored vintage (1980) Yamaha CR-820 powering them and the system is set up in my 2-1/2 car garage. The clarity is remarkable. I can’t even turn it up to 5, as it is so loud it can be heard at the police station one block away... I took a chance and bought an open box at Best Buy that was rated excellent. And they were perfect. The only bummer is the box was missing the rubber feet. When I finally got someone from BB on the phone about it, the person basically told me, “you bought an open box, there is nothing we can do.” Wasn’t expecting to hear that. Whatever.

    This is my second pair of Bowers & Wilkins and these speakers rock. The sound is Fantastic for the money. The speakers have a great sound and a decent punch. So for me I am giving the 5 stars cause you won't find this sound out of another bookshelf speaker. Killer Sound...I'm jamming to them right now as I'm writing this review and we are jammm'in in here. Bababooey to you all
