    For the love of music. An update to the multi-award-winning 600 Series speakers.

    The Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series speakers have undergone several iterations since their introduction as an accessible, visually modest, and high-quality range of speakers. For decades, Bowers & Wilkins have poured their passion for performance and their love of music into everything they do, from their most affordable loudspeakers to their studio-quality 800 Series Diamond range. Now, the 600 Series has turned 25 – an occasion worth celebrating in style. Introducing the 600 Series Anniversary Edition

    25 years of great sound
    Since 1995, well over a million satisfied customers have had their first experience of Bowers & Wilkins sound thanks to a pair of 600 Series loudspeakers. Now, we’re proud to present the seventh generation of Bowers & Wilkin's affordable and iconic best-selling range.

    For more than 25 years, 600 Series has been the music-lovers affordable introduction to the Bowers & Wilkins family of performance loudspeakers, and the new range remains the company’s second-longest continuously available series after the legendary 800 Series.

    Layered, beautiful details

    As seen on the 606, the 606 S2 Anniversary Edition speakers also benefit from the refined Decoupled Double Dome tweeters, offering 38kHz breakup performance. With a re-engineered assembly for better performance, the result is a pure and precise soundscape that allows you to enjoy all the layers of your favourite music.

    This tweeter technology maintains a dual-layer aluminium diaphragm but has been upgraded with the high-end Neodymium magnet inherited from the 700 Series.

    Speakers that look as good as they sound

    In addition to the performance upgrades, the new 600 Series Anniversary Edition includes some important design enhancements. We reintroduce the red Cherry cabinet finish, last seen in 2018, and introduce a brand-new fourth option, Oak. Available in the three stereo models and the centre channel, these complement the existing matte black or matte white finishes.

    All models also feature a new celebratory Anniversary Edition logo inscribed on the tweeter surround. This metallic component is offered in either a light or a dark finish depending on the colour of the cabinet finish – light metallic for white and Oak, dark metallic for black and red Cherry.

    The new 606 S2 speakers aren’t just about cleaner sound, they boast a more sophisticated look, too. The sixth-generation speakers removed the 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.

    The first thing you'll notice about these speakers when they're set up in your room is the contrast between the polished metal of the tweeter to the sharp lines and corners of the enclosure.

    Truly amazing sound

    600 Series Anniversary Edition includes proven drive units derived from the 800 Series Diamond. It partners those superior ingredients with carefully upgraded crossover components, resulting in an even better resolution and superlative musicality.

    Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum cone midrange driver.

    Developed over an eight-year period and first featured on Bowers & Wilkins' flagship 800 Series Diamond models, the Continuum cone has been integrated into the sixth generation of the critically acclaimed 606s, and now in the 606 Anniversary Edition speakers. In addition to appearing more sophisticated than the trademark Kevlar yellow, these cones transform the speakers' performance into something far beyond what you might expect from an entry-level system.

    These eye-catching silver mid-range cones represent a modern Bowers & Wilkins. Similar to Kevlar cones, this woven composite material offers more flexibility and driver control. They offer lower-noise and better self-dampening than Kevlar, and the impulse response time is far quicker than previous cone technologies.

    What this means for you is clearer sound, punchier mids, and more controlled bass. Perfect for explosive home theatre or music, no matter the genre.

    The improved paper bass cones combine effortless power and endless low-end with the precision and low-distortion accuracy you’d expect from Bowers & Wilkins.

    Upgrades across the frequency range

    Remaining aligned with the 600 Series philosophy, the Anniversary Edition benefits directly from upgraded acoustic performance developed for the brand's highest-performance models. Every bypass capacitor on every crossover across all models is new and greatly improved.

    The capacitors have been specially treated by Mundorf, who provided components for the recently launched 700 Series Signature range. In addition, the main high-frequency and mid-frequency capacitors have been upgraded with new, improved designs. The result is greatly improved resolution and transparency across every model in the range that must be heard to be appreciated.

     

     

     

    Additional B&W speakers and stands available

    Take advantage of all the available channels on the Yamaha receiver by adding an extra pair of speakers and/or a second subwoofer. The RX-V6A is equipped to handle 7.2 surround sound, which offers a more detailed and immersive sound over traditional 5.1 surround sound.

    Upgrade to a 7-channel speaker system with an additional pair of Bowers & Wilkins 606 S2 bookshelf speakers. Instead of a single pair of surround speakers, a 7-channel system offers a "surround" channel, as well as a "surround back" channel. This additional pair dramatically increases the level of accuracy that is possible in-home theatre entertainment, immersing you in the middle of the action.

    To make the most of these small but punchy speakers, it is recommended that they are mounted on the B&W STAV24 floor stands, which are available in this package as an optional extra. These stands are designed especially for the 600/600S2 Series bookshelf speakers. They safely and securely lift the speakers to the ideal height for seated listening, be it for music or movies.

    For larger rooms, add another ASW610 10" subwoofer for a deeper and even more immersive experience. Using twin subwoofers in a home theatre system has benefits other than simply offering more bass. Twin subwoofers offer a better distribution of low frequencies throughout the room with greater headroom and a seemingly sourceless sound.

    Some common placement options for dual subwoofers are in the front corners, opposite diagonal corners, and centre points of side walls in the room.
