The 2014 683 S2 from B&W really sets the audiophile standard at this price point - Great depth, open midrange and detailed high end.

Best Floorstanding Speaker £600 - £1200  2014

The 683 S2 steps the 600 series up a gear with the addition of the Kevlar FST midrange driver. In partnership with the latest decoupled double dome tweeter, pulled from the CM10 B&W have delivered a floorstander capable of stunning imaging and clarity within the vocal area.

The other major step forward over the original 683 is in the area of bass definition. B&W have re-designed the bass drivers using a similar double cone technique to that of the tweeter. This has resulted in much better "slam" or attack to the leading edges of bass notes. The net result is a large floorstander witha great deal of finesse.

The pricepoint has been achieved partly by limiting the number of finishes to just two, Black and White which is fine by us considering the talent on tap!

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
