Wow, such quality. When we bash this many products together there's often quite a bit of variation in performanc. But these speakers are all strong and each set would make a very sound purchase under the right conditions. That said, there's a clear winner, and we're not suprised it's the B&W 685 s2s.
Large- scale sound with agility, dynamic punch and bags of detail: no others here come close to being such strong all-rounders. And did we mention they're among the cheapest?
