B&W Nautilus 804 Floorstanding Speakers

 

Left me somewhat disappointed. Highs are superb, mids detailled but bass lacks cohesion with the rest. Compared the 804 Diamond with MA Gold 200 and 300. The 804 couldn't compete, just the highs being of equal quality.

I finally took the plunge into hi-fi after having a Denon 3802 and a pair of ProAc 100's along with my older speakers to fill in for sides and rears. In my move from NYC to Chicago, the security deposit came back, and I decided it was time for an...

Clean midrange detail, punchy bass (I've plugged mine), beautiful highs without beeing sibilant. And they look fantastic in rosenut veneer, especially with the grills off

They seem to be misunderstood by some folks. You must drive them with high current and an amp that is fast enough to handle 8 ohm nominal impedence all the way dow to 3 ohms. If you don't, they will tire you out, and you will hate them

good for midrange detail revealing, but not for everyday nice listening

very few background noise, much detail in midrange. Nice to hear so much detail with almost silent background. Player's attack/strikes to instruments can be heard clearly. Vocal have a natural, deep sound. Clear vocals

too few and odd lean bass, too bright, especially with home listening sound levels. Loses detail when played at moderate sound levels and too few bass makes home listening tirying. Pushing volume up to get makes higher frequencies hard for your ears....

I, as others were, was a little cautious in purchasing the N804's from some of the appalling reviews posted here. I picked up an ex dem pair a few months ago for a very good price after auditioning all the usual suspects.
