The Sound of Style
Style conscious audio enthusiasts already know that British company Bowers & Wilkins is at the forefront of producing audio products that are as technically brilliant as they are good looking. The brand’s P5 and P3 headphones are already a stylish accessory to wear on the ride to work, and if you’re conscious about what you have hanging around your neck, you probably don’t want to compromise the aesthetic of your living room either.
Which is where the 800 Series Diamond speakers come in handy. Already used by some of the most demanding recording and mastering studios across the globe, including the likes of Abbey Road in London, Deutsche Grammaphon in Berlin and Skywalker Sound in California, these speakers are, as you’d therefore imagine, technically outstanding.
Each features a diamond dome tweeter along with a teardrop ‘head’ for optimum performance, moulded from Marlan, a synthetic mineral filled with resin, as well as a driver made from bullet-proof material that has proved to be the ideal medium for audio sound. They also feature the legendary and trademarked Nautilus tapering tube drive technology, which uses tubes that work like horns in reverse, minimising distortion by soaking up excess sound energy from the back of the driver.
But what’s really impressive is the sleek design, available in three finishes, Rosenut, Cherrywood and Piano Black Gloss. They also come in a slimmer version, the 802D Loudspeaker, for space-conscious home-owners. Now where was that vinyl copy of Dark Side of the Moon?
