“No speaker may have done better with relevance and longevity than Bowers & Wilkins’ 800 Series. Overall, you simply cannot go wrong with these speakers” Audiophile Review

Continuum cone
The Continuum cone delivers pristine midrange performance by effectively negating the break-up behaviour that can adversely effect this all-important part of the spectrum.

Plinth
The innovative plinth provides an incredibly solid base for the 800 Series Diamond. The spikes are ideally positioned below the cabinet, and ingenious engineering allows you to switch between castors and spikes with ease.

Solid body tweeter
The Diamond dome tweeter is housed in a solid piece of aluminium. This mechanically inert structure provides an incredibly rigid platform from which the tweeter can deliver crystal clear sound.

Matrix
Bracing is essential in keeping a speaker stable, so the character of instruments comes through cleanly. Developed using computer modelling and constructed from wood ply with metal reinforcement, Matrix offers the ultimate in bracing.

Prestige Edition
The high-gloss Santos Rosewood Prestige Edition is finished by hand by skilled Bowers & Wilkins craftsmen in the Worthing factory. The process is labour intensive – requiring significantly more time than a standard 800 Series model to manufacture. Each Santos Rosewood Prestige Edition loudspeaker will be serially numbered.

    After reading all the reviews, these speakers did not disappoint. The sound from them is breathtaking and they are a talking point whenever visitors are around. I cannot see myself changing these speakers for years if not decades.
