B&W 800D

 

Make sure you find the right spot for the B&W 800D loudspeaker. Weighing in at 125 kg (275 lbs), you are not likely to want to change your mind often. Dispersion of over 60º arc (Horizontal) and over 10º arc (Vertical) will help you enjoy these...

B&W 800 Series 5.1-channel Speaker System

 

When B&W's groundbreaking Nautilus speaker came out, it was praised for its excellent sound and hailed as a marvel of fresh thinking and advanced technology. That engineering effort led to B&W's Nautilus 800 line, which has now morphed into a new range...

If truth be told, I have little use for diamonds in their conventional form. This probably stems from all the pomp and pageantry that surrounds them—not to mention my disdain for those people who drape themselves in the stones and attempt to outshine...

I fully admit to having considerably high expectations when I see the B&W logo on the front of a speaker. All the talk about the diamond tweeter that I had heard prior to this review, along with what I already know about B&W's midranges, woofers, and...

I've owned a few speakers and still own some of them, none comes close to what the 800D can do. Great balance all over from deep deep bass to great highs. Some might think that it has to much bass, but this i simply because most people aren't used to...

B&W 800D

 

While I've found that many speakers have certain strenghths in one area or another. The 800D is the best all around speaker I've heard to date. Listening time is unlimited. Fatigueless. They thrive much better on quality high power of 500 watts or...

For my ears, the strengths supurb in every way

Consumer review by:

B&W 800D

 

I replaced a pair of N801's with the Nautilus 800Ds. My first impression out of the box was that the build quality, already exceptional, was even better. The speaker binding posts are all metal and placed horizontally instead of vertically. The cabinet...

Build quality, gorgeous tone, pin point imaging, large soundstage, strain free treble

Only one. B&W for some reason continues to refuse to ship you spikes with the speakers. You have to send them proof of purchase then they ship you the spikes separately. Makes no sense

B&W 800 Series review

 

We have been excitedly waiting for the latest B&W 800 series for a while now. In due course, a 5.1 array culled from the 15-model strong 800 series arrived, with the newest of the subwoofers and the most gigantic centre enclosure I have probably ever...

True high-end sound with astonishing ower and clarity ; Elegant design

They are big ; the centre won’t go on your telly

B&W 800 Series system

 

One of the very best multichannel speaker systems around. If you've the space and cash, it has to be heard

Revealing, gorgeous and a whole lot of fun, from subtle ambient nuances to thundering bass

Needs space to work at its best, and really merits high-quality partnering kit, too. Not cheap, either

Product Specifications

Slightly taller than its predecessor and with a revised design for the plinth and underside of the cabinet, the 801D is easier on the eye despite its size. It has a larger volume and a bass alignment suited to rooms with a more controlled acoustic. Bass is provided by a single, 380mm (15 in) Rohacell sandwich cone driver, supported by a down-firing Flowport. The diamond dome tweeter is amazing in its ability to reproduce high frequencies in the most natural way - everything is there as it should be, without exaggeration. As with all the 800 Series systems, the minimalist approach to crossover design and the use of the finest components ensures all the drivers combine to form a coherent whole.
