Philip said: Yes, you do get a lot of speaker in the Bowers & Wilkins 603. This big speaker in a stout cabinet is built to produce high outputs in big rooms.

Diego said: In my relatively small room, the 705 S2s provided very clean, tight, powerful bass for their size; an exceptionally detailed and extended top end; and a rich, textured midrange devoid of cabinet colorations.

Gordon said: You just plug them into the wall, run an easy-to-use app to connect them to your home network, and immediately start streaming music with sound quality that any audiophile couldn’t help but admire.

Diego said: . . . for $3299/pair, the Opticon 8 offers a lot: five well-engineered drivers in a sophisticated 3.5-way configuration that results in: deep, tight, room-filling bass; a neutral, detailed midrange; a delicately extended top end with superb horizontal dispersion; and a very wide soundstage with a commensurately broad sweet spot that more than one person can simultaneously enjoy.

Gordon said: With the Navis series, Andrew Jones’s parade of hit products for Elac is clearly continuing. In my view, the ARB-51 rockets straight to the top of the charts.
