Discover the new Bowers & Wilkins Anniversary Edition range, the 7th generation of 600 Series speakers. This entry-level range continues Bowers & Wilkins tradition of providing exceptional sound quality at an attractive price.

The B&W 600 Series Anniversary Edition speakers make it possible to put together a high-performance home theater speaker package at a reasonable price (here the B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition floorstanding speakers and the B&W HTM6 S2 Anniversary Edition center speaker).

What the brand has to say

“The 600 Series Anniversary Edition is a classic example of Bowers & Wilkins’ way of thinking” states Andy Kerr, Director of Product Marketing and Communications. “By using our unique, in-house-developed components and technology from higher ranges, we can raise the performance of our entry-level product to new heights and for a very modest premium. The 600 Series has been setting the standard in its category for 25 years and we’re confident our new Anniversary Edition range will carry on that tradition in style.”

Main improvements

Thanks to the improved crossovers in every model as well as the integration of new capacitors developed by Mundorf, the 7th generation of 600 Series speakers benefits from improved acoustic performance compared to previous editions. Increased transparency is guaranteed.
