The B&W 685 S2 Theatre is part of the 600 Series, Bowers & Wilkins entry level range of speakers. This range comprises of a choice of different floorstanding and stand mount speakers as well as two centres and a choice of three different theatre systems that can be constructed from speakers within the series.
This system is their cheapest suggested system but in our minds one of the best. You can of course build your own, but the components in this system have been selected to provide you with a good quality sound for small to medium sized rooms. There are a pair of 685 S2 stand mounts on the front which when coupled with the HTM62 S2 centre speaker works perfectly - a really good front soundstage and very accurate vocals and effects.
The rear speakers are provided courtesy of the B&W 686 S2 bookshelf speakers. The stands pictured are not provided, but you can add them if you wish. Remember that with rear speakers you'll need a good metre of space behind your seating position for best results. Check out the DS3 speakers as an alternative if you haven't got the room for rears.
Finally, the ASW610 subwoofer provides a solid and reliable bass to underpin the system.
