What Hi-Fi?
28 December 2006
  • Excerpt: Though you might not think it, subwoofers are actually shy, retiring types: affordable examples are often hidden behind sofas, while pricier designs are commonly disguised in coffee-table-esque wood and glass. You aren't supposed to notice your subwoofer at all, in fact: both sonically and visually, the best designs are intended to be as ‘invisible' as possible. But B&W thinks differently.
  • Pros: Extraordinary blend of power and speed, utterly clean, uncoloured sound, small and gorgeous
  • Cons: Nothing whatsoever

A stylish subwoofer

25 August 2006
  • Summary: Even though it’s clearly an exercise in contemporary styling, the PV1 is a great sub for music listeners. It’s not as fantastic if you watch movies, but it still does an exemplary job.
  • Pros: Powerful, incredible low-frequency kick, compact, great styling
  • Cons: Not as versatile as we would have liked for movies

  • Excerpt: Harte physikalische Fakten führten zum kugelförmigen Design des kleinen Aktivwoofers von Bowers & Wilkins. Das sieht gut aus und klingt auch noch formidabel.

Expert Review

Потребитель. Экспертиза и Тесты.
30 December 2006
  • Summary: : PV1 — компактный сабвуфер с ультрасовременным дизайном. Он отлично воспроизводит самый разный музыкальный материал, но и в домашнем театре способен на многое. Один сабвуфер можно использовать в комнатах небольшой и средней площади до 30-40 кв. м, но в связке с другим аппаратом PV1 способен заполнить басом и более просторные помещения.
  • Pros: : хорошая натуральность и глубина баса, высокий контроль звука, оригинальный, высокотехнологичный дизайн.
  • Cons: : некоторая компрессия динамики в кинотеатральных приложениях.

Subwoofer B&W PV 1

15 June 2005
  • Excerpt: Dieses silberne Objekt, zu haben für 1500 Euro, könnte einem ­alten James-Bond-Film entstammen, teilt mit dem 60er-Jahre-Filmhelden allerdings lediglich das Heimatland.
