Wow, I cannot believe how good they sound on both amps, I think the Denon wins so full bodied, I inherited a pair of these from my business partner who passed away and I bought them off the estate but I never ever made them sound like this, so I sold and  they were the Nautilus version which I think is the same give or take but your room just makes them sing. What is your floor made of?

 

Glwts some magic happening in your room.😁😁😁

Hi there - I have a pair of Dynaudio Contour S 5.4 Rosewood  - if your interested in trading up,  I 'm interested in trading down!.   The Dyns are just way too big since I have moved into a small apartment- just a thought .  They would suit your set up well.

That is an amazing deal from you!!, and I always wanted to try good Dynaudio. But unfortunately I'm selling most of my units one by one as we may need to relocate to a different town and probably into an apartment.  Wish if was in a different situation and there was no need for me to think again.  :(

Thankyou :) . Actually this is the worst audio room I ever had. Too much reflections and I feel like some frequencies even cancel each other..or something happening.  My McIntosh is a sweet amplifier but not with these B&W. Both the Denon and My full restored Marantz 2325 sound pretty good and drives them very well. Marantz 2325 is giving 174.8 watts per channel output as per the report from the tech after restoration.

 

I have tried few other amplifiers also with these but was not that happy, where I felt like they are running flat..even with few powerful amplifiers. It is recommended to use  min 150wpc amplifier with these speakers. Anyway they are damn good speakers in the price range.

      Up for sale is a Bower &Wilkins 686 S2 speaker. 
      Its a relatively slim sized speaker that might suit smaller space
      Condition is still very good as per picture.
      Pickup is preferred but can ship at your own expense and risk. 
       
      Comes with original box and manual.
      Note that there is no rubber feet on it as i used a stand with it and the optional bunghole foam apparently has deteriorated inside the packaging box so its there in the box but i dont think that foam is usable anymore.
       
      Some review can be found on:

      Hello friends,
       
      I just spontaneously purchased some Bowers and Wilkins DM2000 last week. Honestly, I saw a photo of them on ebay and something just clicked, not at all my usual shopping style. But this is what I imagine when I hear the word "speakers".
       
      So, now of course I am worried that my reciever is going to leave me wondering about needing more power.
       
      While I await delivery, I'm hoping someone can comment on my Yamaha RX-V1800 ability to push them, and/or suggest something more appropriate, at a price that doesn't trigger my wife's attention.
       
      Is the v1800's 140W a true and fair representation of its power?
       
      Currently, I have Wharfdale 9.5 towers, and enjoy listening to them as loud as I can, relative to any particular situation, but haven't really gone full throttle on them. They tend to lose clarity as I approach -0db.
       
      The few references I find to my b&W online, or to similar b&W spkr of that era, seem be unanimous in that they will eat as much power as you can give them, and crave more. Indeed, the b&W spec sheet gives a minimum Wattage, rather than the usual indicators.
       
      What have I got myself into? Further down the rabbit hole? Or is this going to work out just fine?

      Item Condition: Very Good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Bella Vista State: New South Wales Payment Method: CASH Reason for selling: too many speakers Further information: 
       
      Sweet sounding speakers, a search on google will yield tons of positive reviews. Impressive mid-range especially for vocal. rated 150W Max but they are very easy to drive.  My Onkyo 9130 integrated amp (40W RMS 130W dynamic @8ohm) effortlessly drives them without any distortion at 40% volume. 
       
      Upon close inspection I found a small tear on the rubber rim of one kevlar driver.  Never notice any acoustic compromise though.  
       
      Will include 8 pairs of shock absorption custom spike feet with base  (preinstalled).  
       
      some reviews (the first 2 results on google)
