New Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series announced!

 

 

Bowers & Wilkins have just announced an update to their immensely popular 600 series. B&W have finally retired kevlar in their lineup and is now fully represented by Continuum. This news has us very excited as we are massive fans of the new Continuum drivers that B&W have developed and as a result are some of the most musical speakers we have heard.

Here's what B&W has to say about the new range: "The 600 Series has been one of the most successful and highly regarded ranges in the Bowers & Wilkins portfolio for over 20 years, offering a class leading combination of exceptional performance and compelling value. Through five generations of 600 Series, Bowers & Wilkins engineers have raised the bar successively on what could be accomplished with modestly priced loudspeakers each time achieving greater worldwide critical acclaim and commercial success.

In October 2018, the sixth generation of 600 Series goes on sale. Offering a considerable improvement in capability over the outgoing range, new 600 Series makes high end sound quality more attainable and accessible than ever. This dramatic performance is enabled by advanced technology including, most notably, the adoption of the Continuum cone, first developed for the 800 Series Diamond range and recently introduced to the new 700 Series. This will provide the new 600 Series with the performance improvements it needs to remain class leading and will also ensure its visual and technical alignment with the 700 Series and 800 Series Diamond range.

Available in matte black or matte white and featuring the most accurate and transparent drive unit technologies in its class, the new 600 Series defines a new performance standard in its category.

Technically speaking, the new 600 Series an updated version of the acclaimed Decoupled Double Dome Tweeter, first seen in the outgoing range, for even clearer and more accurate high frequency performance. In the flagship 603, this technology is partnered with a new 165mm FST Continuum cone mid driver for midrange resolution unheard of in this price range. Completing the 603 package and ensuring rich, powerful bass response, 603 features a pair of our newly designed 165mm paper cone LF drivers. In 606 and 607, new generation Continuum mid/bass units usher in a new era of transparency, dynamics and sheer energy for speakers in this class."

The new line-up includes

New B&W Prestige Editions

Bowers and Wilkins have announced a new 800 series Prestige Edition. Available in both the 802D3 and 805D3, these two new models are now finished in a premium Santos Rosewood finish. This new finish takes approximately 40% more time to finish than the standard finishes, which amounts to an extra 4 weeks. With 13 coats of lacquer to really bring out the grain and colour within the wood, these are set to become some of the prettiest looking speakers available. They will remain sonically identical to the standard editions, which is great because the 802 and 805 are some of the best sounding speakers at any price point. Pricing will be available soon. If you are interest in grabbing a pair, drop us a line today on 02 6247 4844 or come visit us in store.

So magnets are pretty rad!

It finally is here, it exists, its real, and it's hella cool.

All of the things we were promised in early sci-fi movies are coming to life and its awesome.

The new MAG LEV magnetic levitation turntable has finally landed at Miranda Hifi and our inner 8 year old selves could not be any more giddy if we tried. The MAG LEV ML1 features a fully levitating platter with electronic speed controller which allows you to swap between 33.3 and 45 RPM with ease. As it uses electromagnets speed control is very good and stable and platter stability is very good too and in turn removes the whole platter vibration issue. As with all turntables though, keep cats, footballs and small children away...

It utilises a 9" Project carbon tonearm so it is nice and stiff and light, and is semi-automatic. It will auto lift at the end of the record, no return though and it requires manual cueing.

Cartridge duties are taken care of by the workhorse Ortofon OM10. Whilst this will get you going, to really get the best out of it, we strongly recommend an upgrade to one of the 2M or preferably Quintet range.

So come on down to the store and marvel at the wonders of magnets, because magnets.

PSB M4U8's have Landed!

The PSB M4U2's have been our best-selling headphone of the last five years, but now his younger, and flashier brother is on the block. The M4U8 takes all that was great about its predecessor, and combines it with the bells-and-whistles of today! With full aptX Bluetooth, Active Noise Cancelling, a bit of a face lift, and a general improvement to the sound, it has proven to be a sturdy upgrade.

Come in and give them a listen, or read more about them here

VU Meters for DAYS

We took delivery of a pretty new (and heavy) McIntosh MC152 Power Amp today. It is paired up with the McIntosh D150 Digital Preamp running the fantastic B&W 803D3's. This is a stunning combination not only in sound but in looks. With gob fulls of power and current and is stable down to 2ohm, there are few speakers it cant power. It's been stuffed full of McIntosh's best technology including Autoformers and it shows. Is heavy. Very heavy.

Also, VU Meters.

I could stare at those VU Meters bouncing around for days. DAAAAAAAAYS.

Come in and see us for a demo, there isn't much we have played that doesn't sound awesome.
