The new B&W 800 Diamond Series is aptly named because, you guessed it, their advanced technology diamond tweeters are now included in every speaker in the range. This is only one of many changes and upgrades made to the previous 800 series, the cabinets are now sourced and made in the UK and there are other significant improvements across the range that offer dramatic improvements.
The diamond tweeter has been redesigned featuring a new surround material and a quad-magnet voice coil. Stereo imaging is claimed to be improved, while increasing openness. The woofers now use a dual neodymium magnet motor system, offering better bass response and lower harmonic distortion. The crossover incorporates a unique capacitor design using silver, gold and oil. Oxygen-free copper speaker terminals and links are also included.
There are seven models in the range (only one 803 model now) starting with the familiar 805 stand mount, 804, 803, 802 and 800 all with the Diamond suffix. Two centre channels complete the line-up – the HTM4 Diamond for smaller installations and the larger HTM2 Diamond.
Diamond tweeters offer a massive improvement in performance for those models that previously used the aluminium tweeter and along with the other upgrades to the range. We have the full range available for audtion so if you would like to arrange an audition or require any further information please contact Paul or Mike who will be pleased to assist.
