Bowers & Wilkins 683 s2 5.1 Home Theatre Package with DS3
Bowers & Wilkins 683 S2 3 way S2 FloorStanding Speakers
The largest speaker in the new 600 Series delivers outstanding power, accuracy and musicality. The floorstander features the new Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, an FST™ midrange driver and new Dual Layer aluminium bass drivers. The result is a loudspeaker ideal for both high-performance stereo and surround sound applications even in larger rooms, delivering serious performance and amazing value.
B&W DS3 Bipole Surround Speakers
For large home theatre installations, choose a pair of rear speakers that can get you closer to the true surround sound of the cinema.
The DS3 is a wall-mounted surround speaker that can operate in what’s called ‘dipole’ mode, to create an authentic all-enveloping effect of the auditorium in a large space. Or, you may prefer to switch to conventional ‘monopole’ operation, in which the sound from side or rear is more precisely located and less diffuse. The choice depends on the room conditions, the size of the audience and the kind of material on view.
Bowers & Wilkins HTM61 S2 3 way Centre Speaker
The larger of two centre channels in the new 600 Series, the HTM61 is ideal for delivering important dialogue in a room-filling, high-performance home theatre system. This is the second model in the new 600 Series to see a significant change to the driver complement. The outgoing HTM61 is a 3-way system, but only had a single bass driver. Here, we follow the line-up of the CM Centre 2, with two 6.5-in bass drivers and a smaller FST™ midrange. The Decoupled Double Dome Tweeter has also been moved upwards, to better align with the tweeters of the 683, which would make a great partner for this speaker in home theatre system. Like the HTM62, the ports are at the rear. This concept was retained for the centre speakers because of the more restrictive requirements on frontal area.
B&W ASW610XP 10" Active Subwoofer
The ASW610XP, the most powerful of the 600 Series subwoofers, delivers the finishing touch – or finishing thump – to a hi-fi or home theatre system for larger rooms. Serious bass power is developed in a compact cabinet thanks to the unit’s twin 200W amplifiers and dual voice coil, long-throw 250mm driver. Equipped with audiophile-standard Class D circuitry, the unit remains cool and efficient under pressure.
