The 685 S2 from B&W builds on the solid foundation of the smaller 686 adding greater weight to the already expansive imaging. A fine choice for the smaller room.

Best Standmount Speaker £400 - £800 2014 Product Of The Year

The 685 is the larger of the two stand mounting models in the 600 range. The use of a slightly larger cabinet and bigger bass driver allows for greater bass weight making the 685 S2 the most versatile of the two models. Bass porting is from the front of the cabinet enabling positioning closer to the rear wall.

In common with the rest of the range the decoupled double dome tweeter handles the high frequency duties with ease allowing  "hot spot" free imaging and a truly magnificent feeling of height not usually experienced from such a compact enclosure.

Available in either black or white finishes the 685's are easily driven and will make a first rate upgrade for many single box systems.
