  • Summary: This is my second review of these beautiful speakers( sound & visual). Since I've owned them I've moved into a house that has a listening room just right for these speakers. 12' X 25' room that just lets them breathe. Currently I have Rotel seperates for surround, but I have bi-amped the speakers and WOW! I know what people mean by certain speakers need power.

  • Summary: Six months ago I got a good deal on the 684, my first "real" speakers. After reading MANY reviews and obsessing over my perhaps too hasty purchase, I made the decision to upgrade, partly because I was kicking myself for not originally shelling out the extra $ for the 683s. This time I did it right and spent more time listening, mostly to speakers in the 1k - 3k range by PSB, Paradigm, and B&W.

  • Summary: the b&w 683 is totaly a great speakers with my rotel ra1070 amp, (100 wpc). i've owned them now less then a month and they're breakin-in very well. bass is fast and slam. yet punchy and full. i have them in black ash and they pretty nice. the most importent thing is that the b&w 683 is a very impresive sound speaker.

  • Summary: I just bought these for my two channel listening over the movie watching. I think I can review these with the limited time I've had them due to they're floor models and have already been burned in at the dealer. I had the stand mounted 602s2 at one time and stepped up to the 805s. After two years with them I realized I would have to buy an amp with more power or another two channel amp and bi-amp the 805s to get the most out of them.

  • Excerpt: "After owning the 683 for 4 months now, I would say this speaker is hard to beat with the price. Great look and sound. Excellent imaging and resolution. This speaker reveal your equipment faithfully so if u are into stereo becareful with system matching and cabling, it might be too bright with some setup. For movie, this speaker is adsolutely mind blowing. I had them run with a yamaha v3800 for HT, the result was superd. If you watch movie like theater ...
  • Pros: Great value and sound Solid
  • Cons: Need some great gear to match

  • Excerpt: В целом не плохая акустика, особенно на фоне явно паршивых конкурентов. Но все же она своих денег не стоит. Лучше обратить свой взгляд на студийное оборудование, там сейчас совсем другая картина, полно очень интересных вариантов. Или на вторичном рынке поискать более достойные ас. В 90х, в начале 2000х было сделано много прекрасной акустики, у BW это и 603 s3, 602 s3 (s2 - тоже очень хороши), великолепная 700 линейка, не стоит забывать про матрикс, а если повезет, можно...
  • Pros: По сравнению с тем хламом который сейчас есть на рынке, это отличные колонки, с хорошими корпусами и добротными фильтрами. Ни одна другая фирма не делает добротные напольники дешевле 100 000р. Hi Fi - умирает, все конкуренты 683, укомплектованы погаными фильтрами (железо в катушках, копеечные электролиты), корпуса из прессованного картона, экономят на всем... Довольно часто можно встретить штампованные рамы у динамиков или вообще сделанные из пластмассы как у монитор ...
  • Cons: Если сравнить 683 с более ранними моделями B&W то станет понятно почему HI FI умирает. Конечно это кетай. Все что можно было удешевить - удешевили. Разница не такая огромная, но она есть. В итоге, конечно, страдает звук.

couplé avec un myryad z142

Pong974, son-video.com
7 October 2013
  • Summary: J'étais partis acheter des B&W CM9 pour acquérir de la "vraie" haute fidélité, drivé par mon ampli myryad z142. Les CM9 valent tout de même 2500 euros, et les 683 1500 euros, soit 1000 euros de moins.... Et bien à l'écoute, j'ai préféré ces enceintes bcp moins cher que les CM9 qui avait une basse qui cafouillait, qui n'arrivée pas à se détacher du reste. Je n'ai pas retrouvé non plus dans la CM9 une vraie musicalité.

BW 683 : Enfin la musique, toute la musique

Gandalf, son-video.com
7 October 2013
  • Summary: Enceintes raffinées, très équilibrées, les 683 immergent dans la musique. Les aigus sont brillants et naturels, les médiums toujours excellents (et remarquables pour les voix), et le rendu des basses fréquences est très présent, fidèle aux nuances entendues en concerts.
