They certainly look cool and I like the height of the the 683s.

They better sound stunning as I am not really diggin' the look. I think that most people really love the former B&W look, most people recognized them by that 'microphone-lookin' thingy on the top of it". At least it had a distinguishable characteristic. I'm not really sure what it is about this line that I don't like....but I am definitely interesting in hearing them!

I think they look kinda cool too, the metal plate around the tweeters looks a little different though, it adds a certain assymetrical thing to the speakers.
It's nice to see that B&W is going to use their FST midrange drivers in the new series, I only don't know why they use smaller woofers now...

Keep them spinning,

Then they would zap your iPod quicker.

The design is a bit of a yawner for me. Throw the grills on and you're looking at any number of speakers. Still, the proof is in the sound and I've always thought the 6'ers were the best value in B&W's current line-up so it should be fun auditioning a few. Hopefully, they didn't screw them up like the 7'ers.
