The What Hi-Fi? Awards are the audio industry’s Oscars. This year, Bowers & Wilkins new 600 Series speakers won three awards, including one for Stereo Speakers Of The Year, while the Mini Theatre home cinema package range also won two.
“A superb pair of speakers that are hugely thrilling… an update worth waiting for… hugely entertaining, and their sheer power, punchy dynamics and excellent detail retrieval will make you want to listen to your entire music collection from the start.” What Hi-Fi was unstinting in its praise during its 5-star review of the new 685 speakers. And the review was capped off with the award for both “Best Standmounter £400-£800” and “Stereo Speakers Of The Year“.
The new 683 speakers also won “Best Floorstander £600-£1,200” with praise for a “very strong and versatile performance… they grab your attention effortlessly and stir your feet, but also provide delicacy and subtlety.”
In the home cinema “speaker packages” category, Bowers & Wilkins was a big winner once again. MT-50 won “Best Style Package £1,000-£1,400“, with What Hi-Fi saying “Small package, hugely impressive sound”. And MT-60D won “Best Style Package £1,800+” for being a ” true all-rounder… adept at everything you’d want a 5.1-channel surround speaker package to do, confident in stereo, beautifully built, and versatile when it comes to installation.”
Five What Hi-Fi Awards for products we’re massively proud of in 2014. And with rave reviews already coming in for our T7 Bluetooth Hi-Fi speaker (“we’re impressed… sounds comfortably better than any such product we’ve heard”), we’re hoping for more in 2015!
