Hallmark Bowers & Wilkins Sound at an Accessible Cost: Award-Winning 603 Tower Loudspeaker Excels with All Types of Music, Plays with Insight, Detail, and Precision

The 603 tower loudspeaker welcomes you to an exclusive club – that of Bowers & Wilkins, populated by tens upon tens of thousands of satisfied users the world over who recognize the value of stalwart music reproduction, advanced technology, and forward-thinking innovation. Better yet, 603 gives you membership without the price tag often associated with many Bowers & Wilkins models all the while providing the company's famed levels of performance, quality, and purity. Winner of the 2019-2020 EISA Award for Best Loudspeaker, 603 proves spectacular whether used in two-channel audio systems or as an anchor for a home theater.

Inherent to its appeal, 603 seemingly realizes no two music lovers are alike and handles practically every imaginable style with authority, liveliness, and insight. It reveals the tonal majesty of a violin solo, nuanced phrasing of a chanteuse, weight of a doom-metal dirge, colorful lines of a jazz combo, fluid pulse of a hip-hop track, and inertia of an arena-rock anthem with profound definition, accurate detail, and involving emotionalism. Not content to sit on the sidelines, or have you do the same, 603 opens up the lid on recordings, offering fullness, snap, and speed that put an end to any notion of passive listening.

The acumen of the ultra-dynamic 603 start with its six-inch Continuum cone midrange driver – a trademarked innovation that took eight years to develop and first found in Bowers & Wilkins' much costlier 800 Series. It works in total harmony with two 6.5-inch woofers and a one-inch Decoupled Double Dome aluminum tweeter to provide engaging purity, smoothness, and accuracy. An exemplar of precision, the 53.1-pound 603 probes and identifies the layers embedded in songs and albums, and renders film soundtracks with an immersive aptitude that nonetheless avoids being sterile or clinical.

With minimalist looks, the three-way design also aces aesthetics. A white or black matte finish complements panels free of grille pegs and sleek cosmetics that hide the rear-firing, dimpled, flared Flowport by locating it in the back of the cabinet. Speaking of, each 41.5 x 12.6 x 14.6-inch (HWD) 603 includes a two-piece foam plug that can be inserted (or left out) for further bass tweaking. Dual-binding speaker posts, removable magnetic grilles, spiked feet and associated hardware, and self-adhesive rubber feet add to the user-friendly versatility.

Voice-matched to all other 600 Series models, 603 achieves equal success in a multichannel setup. It excels at both low and high levels, while its vented-box architecture means you'll also enjoy satisfying low-end frequencies that help bring involving energy to the entertainment at hand. Factor in a five-year manufacturer warranty and our 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee, and 603 deserves a place in your home.

"The Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series has set the standard in affordable speakers for decades, and this latest version is its best yet. That's especially true of the floor-standing 603, which offers a striking combination of performance and value for money."
– EISA, 2019-2020 Best Loudspeaker Award

"They are blessed with a wow factor that other speakers at this price can only dream of, especially with voices. And the listening experience just gets better, thanks to their wide soundstage, impressive sense of scale and insightful delivery."
What Hi-Fi?, five-star review

"Bowers & Wilkins' 603 is absolutely the floorstander of choice for under $3000 [Australian dollars]. I seriously doubt that you will find a floor standing speaker with the same brand heritage, beautiful midrange tone, detail, soundstage, and versatility for less than five grand [Australian dollars]."
– Matthew Jens, Stereonet, Applause Award

"Once again, a good three-way design such as this seems to have an easy, unstrained quality that lets the music flow on its own terms. And more than that, with the kind of dynamic expression and discrimination that truly opens music up and is seldom experienced at this price point. Bowers & Wilkins' 603 is a complete loudspeaker – exceptional value and warmly recommended."
Hi-Fi Choice, Recommended review

"The Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series has sat at the intersection between high-performance and high-value for more than three decades, delivering a sizable slice of what the company's top speakers can do at a much more affordable price. That tradition continues with the new 600 Series."
