Bowers & Wilkins 800 D3 Floorstanding Speakers

A revolutionary reinvention of the reference speaker

Reviewed by the experts

"Highly revealing of the purity of tone of instruments, these floorstanding speakers are just as capable of snarl or stomach-rearranging punch."
-Hi-Fi News

“This is the first time we’ve realised this level of power and refinement at the same time.”
-CEPro

Floorstanding speaker

The flagship of the 800 Series Diamond range is a no-compromise design: behind that strong visual statement is half a century of design and engineering, all in the cause of greater musical insight and impact.

Hear small details in a big way

Mounted atop the main enclosure, the Diamond dome tweeter in its solid aluminium housing delivers space, ambience and precise soundstage imaging.

 

Less resonance, more dispersion

The Turbine Head's massive midrange housing is carefully shaped and inert, ensuring voices and instruments are delivered with extreme purity.

 

 

 

 

Truly amazing sound

Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone midrange driver.

 

 

 

 

 

Nimble and powerful

Solid, dramatic bass is delivered through the rigidity and lightness of the uniquely-shaped variable thickness Aerofoil™ cone.

 
 

 

 

 

 

Stable foundations

Perfect sound is about moving air, not the speakers: a stable plinth makes for easy positioning, then keeps it rock-solid for listening.

 

 

 

 

Braced for impact

Unwanted resonances can blunt the punch of the sound: advanced Matrix bracing keeps the cabinet ultra-rigid and damps out superfluous vibrations.
