The flagship model in the 7th generation 600 Anniversary series is also the only floorstanding model. They take full advantage of the award-winning Continuum cone technology, which creates a pure, precise and immersive soundscape.

Anniversary Edition 600 series includes a new celebratory logo inscribed on the tweeter surround in either light or dark finishes, depending on the colour of the rest of the speaker.

Naturally B&W have pushed forwards in offering even greater performance as well. These acoustic performance upgrades come from upgraded crossovers in every model. New and greatly improved bypass capacitors are used across the new Anniversary Series: these have been specially treated by Mundorf and were originally used for the recently launched 700 Series Signature range.

In addition, the main high-frequency and mid-frequency capacitors have also been upgraded with new, improved designs. The result is greatly improved resolution and transparency across all of the 600 Series Anniversary Edition speakers.

Formidable might be the best way to describe the performance of the 603's at their price point.

High frequencies are handled by the proven Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, but here with a re-engineered assembly for better performance, whilst improved paper bass cones combine effortless power and endless low-end with the precision and low-distortion accuracy we demand. Sat in the middle the Continuum midrange driver delivers breathtaking realism to vocals and the entire sound is cohesive, energetic and more refined than previous models.

The 7th generation 600 series is not just about cleaner sound – it boasts a cleaner look, too. The grille pegs have been removed and replaced with magnets to create a stunning, subtle but contemporary look. All 600 Anniversary series models are now available with finishes in black, oak and white.
