All it takes is a glance at the new 800 Series, and their brilliance is revealed. Available in stunning wood-grain or gloss black/white cabinets with leather trim and a newly anodized top tweeter, you could sit and stare at these speakers all day and likely feel content.
But of course, aesthetics are just a small part of the experience. Hook the 800 Series up, and you are immediately transported to a sanctuary of sonic bliss. Listen to some of your favorite tracks and experience detail, depth, and emotion like never before. Youll discover hidden gems in familiar recordings that feel like theyve been waiting for a loudspeaker evolution like the 800 series to set them free.
What evolution exactly? The new 800 Series has improvements in many of the breakthrough features Bowers & Wilkins is known for, including signature Diamond dome tweeters, Continuum cones, and Matrix cabinets. However, the biggest news is the revolutionary new Biomimetic Suspension in the mid-range cone. This advancement dramatically reduces the unwanted air pressure and coloration conventional cones can generate. The result? Midrange transparency not thought possible.
The following is a summary of some of the more significant advancements in the new 800 Series Diamond:
Revolutionary Biomimetic SuspensionSuperior midrange transparency
Elongated Solid Body TweeterImproved high-frequency performance
Reverse Wrap Cabinet In More ModelsEnhances sound dispersion
Aluminum Cabinet Top PlateImproves acoustic performance
The new 800 Series Diamond range continues to feature seven models, beginning with the two-way 805 D4 stand-mount speaker, followed by a series of three-way floorstanding modelsthe 804 D4, 803 D4, and 802 D4. For the flagship model in the range, Bowers & Wilkins is pleased to reintroduce the iconic 801 D4. For home theatre, the HTM81 D4 and HTM82 D4 provide a pair of high-performance center channel speakers to complete the range.
You can probably tell we are pretty excited about the new 800 series. Or, maybe the better word is giddy. We thought we had heard the perfect loudspeaker, and they built a better one.
