Cinema remakes are notorious for fading into the shadows of the originals, but Bowers & Wilkins thinks that – seven years after its multi award-winning Mini Theatre series – a reboot of its Mini Theatre system will swin it a fresh set of plaudits.
Going up for the gongs are B&W’s revised pair of compact 5.1 surround sound systems – the MT-60D and MT-50 – starring five identical M-1 satellites, redesigned from the ground-up to offer bookshelf hi-fi speaker quality.
Bowers & Wilkins has also reworked its sterling subwoofer – the PV1D, above – for the MT-60D Mini Theatre system. The sub keeps its iconic styling, but gains deeper and more responsive bass, plus an OLED display. The MT-50 retains the existing ASW608 sub for its lower price tag, though this now comes in white as well as black (as you can see below).
The revised MT060D and MT50 Mini Theatre systems are available from March.
