He then adopted up with the equally spectacular Uni-Fis, and once more late final 12 months with the Adantes. That is plenty of audio system in a brief house of time, so we weren’t anticipating an an replace to the Debut B6 this quickly. However right here it’s.
The B6.2 manages to make some enhancements on the unique speaker, particularly when it comes to construct high quality, and it solely prices $20 extra. The brand new design feels like a cross between the outdated Debut and the newer Uni-Fi, with a clearer, extra open efficiency than earlier than. We’ll miss the laid-back qualities of the unique B6, however nonetheless the B6.2 is a nice speaker for lower than the price of an AV receiver or perhaps a first rate file participant.
