It may not come as a surprise that big speakers sound, well, big.
The 683 S2s are larger than many of their peers, but the sense of scale is massive.
The soundstage is wide and tall, and instruments are organised with plenty of room to breathe.
There’s good clarity. The performance is sharp and precise, stopping and starting right on cue. This helps to create a very deliberate vibe: music is performed with confidence and verve – we’d go so far as to say panache.
Tonally they are well balanced and well integrated, but we should give a shout-out to the 683 S2s’ impressive low end.
It’s deep and authoritative enough to make you briefly wonder if there’s a subwoofer hidden somewhere. And yet nothing gets drowned out by the bass.
This is the kind of low-end heft we like: powerful but nuanced and controlled enough not to compromise the rest of the frequency range.
For the muscle on hand, there’s a surprising level of nuance. The 683 S2s are big and bold. They grab your attention effortlessly and stir your feet, but also provide delicacy and subtlety.
