The loudspeaker that sets the standard all high-end designs will be judged by for years to come. Endowed with every new technology the 800 Series Diamond has to offer, the 801 also marks the return to our portfolio of one of our most iconic model names

This is not just another speaker range. Each new generation of 800 Series Diamond is a landmark event for Bowers and Wilkins. This is our benchmark, our icon: the most advanced range of loudspeakers we know how to make.
For us, the 800 Series Diamond is everything we know and everything we are.

Turbine Head
Our all-aluminum Turbine head is a phenomenally stiff and inert housing for the crucial midrange cone, carefully damped to avoid unwanted resonances and decoupled from both the bass enclosure and the tweeter body. The result? The most realistic midrange sound yet.

Every model in the new 800 Series Diamond benefits from an upgraded Matrix design, Aluinium reinforced interlocking panels brace the speakers cabinet walls in all directions, reducing resonance and creating a more believable soundstage
