B&W ASW608 review

 

We get to grips with the smallest B&W woofer we've ever seen...

Astonishing grip and musical low-end control for one so small ; Beautifully made

Limited by its size ; Will make complaining noises if overdriven

Small but perfectly formed, this subwoofer will pleasantly exceed your expectations

B&W ASW608 review

 

This B&W ASW608 dinky subwoofer turns in a fast, lively and punchy delivery

Fast, lively and punchy

Can't dig really deep

Compact and solidly built box which turns in a fast, lively and punchy delivery. It's a fine option

B&W 600 Series Speaker System and Onkyo TX-SR805 A/V Receiver

 

One of the home theater industry's greatest sins is modesty. If excessively modest people hide their lights under a bushel, speaker and receiver manufacturers go them one better, hiding their achievements in boxes. Boxes with drivers on the front,...

Because the 685 and crew have a fair amount of bass, they don't need a huge subwoofer for bass reinforcement. Thus, the review system used the ASW608, a space-saving mini-sub with a single 8-inch driver. I hoisted it onto my desk (not something I do...

B&W ASW608 im Test

 

Mit 450 Euro ist die geschlossene Bassbox B&W ASW 608 vergleichsweise günstig. Ob der Mini-Subwoofer auch im Klang überzeugen kann, zeigt der Test.

für die Größe extremer Tiefbass, gut an die Raumakustik anpassbar

Sonos Connect:Amp + B&W M-1 og ASW608

 

Med Sonos-forsterkeren som hjertet, er brukervennligheten et faktum. Anlegget varter dessuten opp med kraftig lyd.

Meget brukervennlig ; Klar lyd ; Kraftig bass ; Multirom

Litt svulstig bass ; Mangler litt oppløsning

Oppløsningen i overtonene er ikke helt på høyde med de beste.

B&W M1 och ASW608

 

Tunga aluminiumhögtalare och en kompakt och rapp subbas är onekligen förtroendeingivande. Men är B&W-systemet värt alla pengarna?

Öppen ljudbild ; Klar dialog ; Bra dynamik

Lite barsk subbas ; Bara tunna kablar

Test av Sonos Connect: Amp + B&W M-1 och ASW608

 

Med Sonos-förstärkaren som hjärta är användarvänligheten ett faktum. Dessutom är ljudet potent.

Mycket användarvänligt ; Rent ljud ; Kraftig bas ; Multiroom

Aningen svulstig bas ; Saknar lite upplösning
