B-Tech Atlas BT606 review

Doesn't quite cut it, allowing too much flabby bass to come through

Our Verdict

Doesn't quite cut it, allowing too much flabby bass to come through

For

  • Good high-frequency performance

Against

  • Flabby bass swamps everything

Nice-looking, with an interesting baseplate design (the corners are folded over to provide the fixings for the spikes), the B-tech Atlas BT606s make a good first impression. They also come with a variety of spikes and pads for mounting your speakers.

We only wish that good first impression extended to their performance. But with these, our kit sounded ponderous, with a flabby low-end that robs music of get-up-and-go, as well as affecting openness and transparency. It also leads to confusion and woolliness at complex moments.

The high-frequency performance is quite sweet-sounding – it's just swamped by the bass. Using filler will help, but there are better options out there.
