  • Summary: Have had these speakers for less than a week, but have listened to them almost continuously since their arrival. It's very hard to leave my living room now! Since I sit back quite a long way from these speakers, I had to play around with placement for a while, but when placed farther apart the "normal" the sound stage was incredible and the back wall turned into a giant orchestra, or opera stage.

  • Summary: "Diamonds are forever/They are all I need to please me/They can stimulate and tease me...." (D. Black & J. Barry). The Bowers and Wilkins, or B&W, 803Ds ("D" for diamond tweeters) are an easy load to drive, playing at any volume level with authority, sans fatigue, courtesy of my 150 watt per channel Bryston 3BSST Power Amplifier / BP26P Preamplifier, in conjunction with a Classe CDP-10 Compact Disc Player, Oracle Delphi Mark IV Turntable (with all Mark V non-machined...

  • Summary: I actually preferred the 803Ds after listening to the 802Ds since you don't have to to listen to them 'loud' to get the full range of the speakers' capability. The 802Ds are great and you have a huge listening area or use them mostly for HT, imo, but to get their full range of sound, you need to turn them up even with a powerful amp. I opted for the 803Ds with the same diamond tweeter and 3 woofers that enable the 803Ds to reach the same bass range as the 802Ds.

  • Summary: I am not an audiophile but these speakers are simply amazing. They are smoother than the 803S with the diamond tweeters and with the three woofers sound very similar to the 802Ds without having to turn the volume way up like on the 802Ds to apppreciate their full vocal range. The diamond tweeter is incredible for producing sweet highs, the FST/Kevlar midrange is perfect for producing vocals and the 3 woofers almost preclude the need for a subwoofer.

B&W 803D: suono molto naturale.

  • Excerpt: Un mio amico, molto incoscientemente, mi ha prestato le 803D a casa mia. Molto incoscientemente perchè un danno a questi splendidi diffusori inglesi è un delitto, sono soldi (sostituire un twitter, quella cosa affusolata che vedete sul capo del diffusore, ...
  • Pros: Oggetti solidi e molto belli .  Ottima costruzione . Suono molto equilibrato e naturale .
  • Cons: Oltre al prezzo non saprei .  .  .
