  • Summary: I used a pair of B&W 6 made in England, bought them in 1994, after almost two decades of joyful service I decided to change them, quite a big mistake, since the sound of the 684 are trully disappointing it's too brilliant and it has a lack of bass very important. Worst B&W ever done, at least to my ears, and it doesn't worth the value.

  • Summary: I bought my B & W 684 in 2008, after having had a set of Dali 7A for 17 years. B & W 684 requires long play intro time. Approximately 1000 hours! Initially, I used an amplifier from Thule PA100 / PR100 but swapped it out with a Lyngdorf. This made the speakers were much better and more distinct in the treble and midrange.

  • Summary: I have bought these 684 speakers after listening to the 684 and the 683. The 684 has a more detailed midrange and the bass does not obstruct the midrange like the 683. I have these babies bi wired with a powerful amp, the pioneer elite ax5ais and the result is exceptional. These babies require power. At first, I had the foam plugs in the front holes, but after removing these,the speakers bass was more powerful and beautiful.

  • Summary: The 684's are a great speaker. They have incredible attention to detail and no matter what voume i play them at, they perform with exceptional qulaity. If you want real bass ........ bring in a sub woofer. I'm big fan of the B&W systems although maybe easily pleased having upgraded from Bose! That being said everyones taste is different and you cant beat the experience of auditioning to find what it is you are looking for.

  • Summary: An aging man looking for his youth again I looked at the pile of aging Hi-fi equipment left in the garage & wondered WHY? So when the opportunity presented in came the hifi stand and the Denon Mono-blocks my old Rotel pre-amp, my cd840 and my Bose speakers. In no time I was up and running but then inside a week the Bose had packed in. What now? I checked out those 901s I always wanted but £1600 before I could even hear them.....

  • Summary: owned a pair of B&W 602 S3 (bookshelf speakers) prior to purchasing my B&W 684 and one would have thought that option to purchase the 684 was natural one having been accustomed to the B&W brand previously, however this was not the case at all and the process proved to be a rather difficult considering the high quality of speakers currently available in the market.

  • Summary: I have this wonderfull B&W 684 speakers since April this year and before I had a Mission 702e. This is such an improvement over my old speakers and also now I have a NAD C355BEE amplifier with a NAD C545BEE cd player connected to them. Before I had QED speaker cables but now changed to Atlas Hyper 3.0 for bass and Hyper 1.5 for treble.

  • Summary: I have been exceedingly happy with my B&W 684's in combination with my Cambridge Audio 640 v2 amplifier, CD player, and DAB radio. I am not be an audio expert, but I am someone who loves music *a lot*. I mainly listen to classical music, and I frequently go to actual concerts so I know very well what those sound like.
