The multi-award winning 685 is a stand mount loudspeaker capable of providing a clear and refined performance in both stereo or home theater systems in small to medium sized rooms.
For hi-fi or home cinema in small to medium-sized rooms, you need a loudspeaker that doesnt take up floor area, but whose sound can still command the space. Youll find the 685, which can sit on a shelf, table, stand or wall-mount, an inspired choice.Its 165mm diameter Kevlar cone bass/midrange is based on a tried-and-trusted Bowers & Wilkins design, but its new fixed center bullet helps to smooth the response in upper frequencies. Also, by setting the bass/midrange closer to the tweeter than in equivalent earlier speakers, we have improved the integration and vertical dispersion of sound from the two units. The NautilusTM tube-loaded, aluminum dome tweeter, featuring a new surround material to improve spaciousness and imaging, adds needle-sharp top end all the way to 50kHz and beyond.The improvements to the drive units in the new 600 Series make it possible, for the first time, to introduce a minimalist crossover to the range. The use of components that are fewer in number but higher in quality hand-picked in exhaustive listening tests reduces the degradation of the signal significantly. So, whether youre enjoying hi-fi or home cinema, what you hear is that much closer to what was recorded.
