A Bookshelf Loudspeaker Worth Celebrating: Bowers & Wilkins Anniversary Series 607 S2 Plays with Incredible Smoothness, Features Five-Inch Continuum Driver and Optimized Crossover
Few loudspeaker series can lay claim to a 25-year heritage. Fewer still get the reactions inspired by the Bowers & Wilkins Anniversary Series 607 S2 bookshelf speaker. Expressions of awe, and exclamations such as "I cannot believe the range of sound that comes from such a compact device" are commonplace. Then again, not every manufacturer is Bowers & Wilkins, and certainly, not every standmount is the 607 S2. They can only wish, but you can experience the reality of how convincingly this space-friendly 11.5 x 6.5 x 9.1-inch (HWD) design performs in your own home with a risk-free audition.
Ideal for small and medium sized rooms, bedrooms, offices, and dens, or for use as surrounds in a 600 Series home theater, 607 S2 exudes the advanced technology and meticulous engineering that has made Bowers & Wilkins globally famous. Voice-matched to all other 600 Series models, the 10.4-pound unit plays with beguiling detail, clarity, and balance. It excels at both low and high levels, with the latter getting extra assistance from optimized crossovers with enhanced Mundorf capacitors. In addition, its vented-box architecture means you'll also enjoy satisfying low-end frequencies that help bring involving energy to music and movies.
Inside, a five-inch Continuum cone bass/midrange driver – a trademarked innovation that took eight years to develop and first found in Bowers & Wilkins' flagship 800 Series – accompanies a refined one-inch Decoupled Double Dome tweeter (with 38Hz breakup) to provide remarkable purity, smoothness, and accuracy. 607 S2 will probe and identify the layers embedded in songs and albums, and renders film soundtracks with immersive aptitude. A speaker that fits practically anywhere that affords a frequency-response range of 52Hz to 28kHz? Welcome to the world of 607 S2.
On the exterior, a matte finish and an elegant anniversary-themed trim ring around the tweeter complement aesthetics free of grille pegs and sleek cosmetics that hide the rear-firing, flared Flowport by locating it in the back of the cabinet. Speaking of its bass-reflex enclosure, each 607 S2 also comes with a two-piece foam plug that can be inserted (or left out) for further bass tweaking. Removable magnetic grilles, self-adhesive rubber feet, and the option to pair 607 S2 with custom Bowers & Wilkins STAV S2 stands (sold separately) round out an exceptional speaker backed by a five-year manufacturer warranty and our 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
