★★★★★ "The Bowers & Wilkins 805 D4 are beautifully made and sonically accomplished, and for that, they deserve a place on the shortlist" ★★★★★ - What Hi-Fi?
Despite the 805 being the most compact loudspeaker in the Diamond 4 family, these stand-mounts are still packed with the latest technology. Available in four stunning finishes.
805 D4 might be smaller than its floorstanding siblings, but it’s no lightweight: its beautifully constructed Reverse-Wrap cabinet, stiff aluminium bass pods and 165mm (6.5in) Continuum™ mid-bass cone afford it exceptional bass extension and scale for a relatively compact speaker.
Diamond dome tweeter
One of Bowers & Wilkins' most significant accomplishments over the past two decades, the ultra-stiff, supremely accurate Diamond dome tweeter is the perfect combination of low mass, exceptional stiffness and outstanding accuracy. 15 years after they introduced it, nobody has found a better tweeter dome technology.
Solid Body Tweeter assembly
B&W's newest Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top housing features an elongated form with a longer tube-loading system, producing an even more free and open sound with high frequencies. The carefully decoupled housing is milled from a single solid block of aluminium to better resist resonance.
The new reverse-wrap orientation of the cabinet on 805 D4 means we can place its sensitive crossover components inside their own, dedicated space within the cabinet, which has critical benefits to both performance and serviceability. B&W have taken the opportunity to upgrade the speaker terminals, too.
