B&W 607 Bookshelf Speaker (Pair)
Bowers & Wilkins new 607 loudspeakers use technologies developed in their studio monitor series.....their monitors are used in famous recording studios such as Abbey Road studios in London. The Contiuum mid/bass driver which creates layered midrange sound which is quintessential in the accurate reproduction of vocals and key instruments including piano, guitar and string instruments, is a direct descendant from their world famous 800 Series monitors.To complement this new cone Bowers & Wilkins have retained their Decoupled Double Dome Tweeter, an important ingredient of imparting the rhythm of the music.Surprisingly compact, these aesthetically pleasing bookshelf speakers delight with their rhythmic sound.
The Bowers & Wilkins 607s possess a richness throughout the register that exposes just how brilliant their sense of timing is. Snappy timing is combined with plenty of punch and enthusiasm that simply cannot fail to entertain. It is the B&W 607s’ penchant for expression that makes them stand out. The 607 speakers exhibit the necessary detail within the song by allowing each instrument its space, yet letting them blend beautifully. These bookshelf speakers are capable of deeper and more authoritative bass response than their diminutive form would suggest.
Expressive detail and sheer musical enjoyment are built into this speaker. This Bowers & Wilkins does not sacrifice soundstage and image for detail. They are energetic, insightful and riotously entertaining. The 607s do exactly what the company’s engineering team had strived to do: Bring a high level of value and performance at a price point that a lot of people can afford, and that makes them a favourite. Their energy and enthusiasm is ceaseless, their aim only to make you happy, as long as you keep feeding them.
