SoundStage - February 2017
"Anyone looking for an easy entry into the audiophile world would be well served by the Bowers & Wilkins 685 S2. For a $699/pair speaker, it hits most of the high-end high points: precise imaging, refined detail, ample dynamics. And for the speaker’s modest size, its bass extension is impressive."

"A superb pair of speakers that are hugely thrilling, these 685s are an update worth waiting for."
