An icon enhanced
The new 606 S3 takes the award-winning 606 formula and evolves it. By complementing the Continuum cone and Titanium Dome tweeter with upgraded speaker terminals, and a subtly modernized design, 606 is now even more appealing to even more music lovers.
Layered, beautiful details
The new 606 S3 introduces our all-new Titanium Dome tweeter, which combines exceptional resolution and insight with smooth, refined high-frequency reproduction. The result? An accurate and immersive insight into your favourite music.
Truly amazing sound
606 S3 introduces our new and even more acoustically transparent tweeter grille mesh, first developed for our revered Signature models. Alongside the new Titanium Dome tweeter, the resolution and realism is exceptional.
Precision and transparency
Thanks to its composite construction, the Continuum cone avoids the abrupt transitions in behaviour that can impair the performance of a conventional drive unit. With 606 S3, experience a more open, neutral performance that delivers voices and instruments with precision and transparency.
Upgraded speaker terminals
Derived from the speaker terminals recently introduced in our 700 Series range, the speaker terminals on the new 606 S3 feature an improved layout and a cleaner signal path between your amplifier and your loudspeakers.
