Conclusion: Conclusion What we now can say is that the 800 Diamond series (despite it is the third series already) still is a design icon. As far as technique it still belongs to the absolute top, and let's be fair: it is simply the best speaker money can buy. The performance level lies not in the asking price of 22,000 euros, but much higher. When you place these speakers in the right room and hear the actual capacities you'll be baffled.
Excerpt: The 800 Series from Bowers & Wilkins has for a long time been the weapon of utter perfection and choice for some of the world’s most demanding sound engineers – because monitoring what exactly you are making in a recording studio is crucial. You want utter fidelity, not a brash and boastful presentation that makes everything sound fabulous in the studio, but then leaves it all a bit damp and frayed around the edges when not heard on such flattering speakers.
Conclusion: Så til den nye diamant diskant. Det er muligt, at udviklingen af den har kostet masser af pund, sved, tårer og andre anstrengelser, men kære B&W… det var sliddet værd !!! Dette er den bedste dome, jeg endnu har lagt øre til. Den kombinerer alle fordelene fra andre principper med domens enestående klanglige egenskaber.
