  • Summary: Purchased these from Audio One in Ontario, Canada, I got a really great deal on these as they were on the look out for a nice pair for me for about 4 Months. These Babies are very heavy, had a bit of trouble getting them in to my " Theatre of dreams" , they were hooked up with a Levinson 332 and an Anthem D2 Pre/Pro, for movies this combination and a Rotel RMB 1075 for the surround speakers were great, however for music something was missing, not the sound I wanted.

  • Summary: Love reading some of the reviews trashing these speakers. They must be listening with mis-matched components or in a poor room, or both. And they definitely can't spell. I've had my N802s for a couple of months now and originally had them connected to a mid-fi Denon receiver just to test, and was shocked at how good the combination sounded- in the RIGHT room. They've since been paired with a McIntosh amp and pre, MC352 and MX132 respectively.

  • Summary: After more than 5 years I still feel these are the best all around speaker I have ever heard. They are very revealing of both the recording and the electronics. They do need power, lots of power. Don't purchase these speakers if you can't afford the amplification to drive them. I still feel the Bryston 14B SST was made for these speakers, but there are lots of amps that will drive them, but they won't be cheap.

  • Summary: I red a lot of pros and cons regarding these speakers. To my opinion they are one of the best sounding speakers I've heard BUT they are demanding indeed. Demanding in terms of amplification, demanding in terms of source, demanding in terms of cables and demanding in terms of placement. Once you have achieved solving the above equation you'll be ready for hours of pure listening pleasure. Amplification is key. the 802 require big amps ie lots of current and power reserve.

  • Summary: I have owned the early (1982) b&w 802 Series One and most recently I have lived with a used pair of the B&W 801 of the same vintage. Over the years I have refined all aspects of the electronics and wiring of my system. Each time the vintage 801s registered the changes with improved sound. I was really happy. Then I went to the San Francisco Symphony once again recently and heard an orchestra that has at last arrived at a place I call world-class, IMHO.
