Bowers & Wilkins: 800 Series Signature

NEW PRODUCT June 28, 2023: Bowers & Wilkins launches the new 800 Series Signature. Expertly crafted, diligently honed, and optimized for perfection. This new series adds to the product line, not replacing the current beloved 800 line but elevating to a next level.

In addition to current lineup and not replacing existing models, the latest in the Bowers & Wilkins line now includes the 801 D4 Signature is “an optimized version of our most advanced loudspeaker” with a focus on improvement over an already iconic line. “This is Bowers & Wilkins’ 800 Series Signature flagship loudspeaker.”

Also new is the 805 D4 Signature stand-mount loudspeaker. “It features fully optimized technologies, including that all-important Diamond Dome tweeter and Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top. It’s proof positive that small can still be beautiful.” Both floorstander and stand-mount are available in two colours unique to the Signature Series.

“Our new Signature models are finished in lustrous Midnight Blue Metallic paint or California Burl veneer, with multiple coats of paint or lacquer to deliver a supremely rich and desirable finish. With their deep, luxurious colour, each loudspeaker is a unique piece of art. Each loudspeaker in the 800 Series Signature range is manufactured to the most exacting standards, with each unit featuring a Signature identifying plate to highlight its exclusivity.

As with preceding generations of Signature, both 805 D4 Signature and 801 D4 Signature employ a series of carefully engineered audio upgrades designed to deliver the best possible sound. These changes take in structural modifications designed to improve mechanical behaviour and acoustic transparency, drive unit enhancements aimed at delivering even greater resolution and crossover upgrades that ensure fully optimized performance from the complete system.”

Midnight Blue Metallic loudspeakers are painted to the same exacting standards and using the same finishing and paint application process as the iconic Nautilus loudspeakers. California Burl wood veneer models have unique wood figuring and an exceptional depth and lustre to their high-gloss finish. The wood veneer is sustainably sourced engineered wood from the Italian brand Alpi. It requires multiple sanding processes plus skilled machine polishing to achieve the finished, ultra-premium look. Metal component parts for each, such as drive unit pods and the tweeter body, are finished in dark anthracite or gloss black and both are trimmed in black Connolly leather.

These beautiful new additions to the Bowers & Wilkins speaker family are now listed on our website, with full specifications and details. The 805 D4 and 801 D4 Signature Series is available by special order and hand crafted. Please contact us with inquiries.
