EUROPEAN HIGH-END LOUDSPEAKER 2016-2017

Bowers & Wilkins 802 D3
9

The British company’s 800 series has long showcased the peak of its expertise and this year saw the range brought bang up to date with the launch of seven new loudspeakers. Standing over 1.1m tall, the 802 D3 is the penultimate floorstander in the line-up and features an entirely redesigned ‘Turbine’ head assembly, machined from solid aluminium and housing its new Continuum midrange driver and trademark diamond-dome tweeter. With twin Aerofoil bass units providing a solid foundation to its sound, this latest 802 delivers the marque’s most lucid and insightful music-making yet. It is a true reference in the world of hi-fi loudspeakers.
