Bowers & Wilkins 800 Diamond (D2) – Review

The Mercedes S-Class of High-End Audio?

Admittedly, I have always been a huge fan of the Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus series sound signature. There has always been a certain warmth to the sound that caught my attention. I have been extremely excited to review the former (2010-2016) flagship model, having owned quite a few B&W speakers over the last two decades. My endeavors started with the 802N in the early 2000’s, switching to the 800N, the 802D, the 800D, the 801D, the 803D2 and now the 800D2. Looking at this, I am quite shocked how biased my perception might be towards this manufacturer, however I have also owned and listened to quite a lot of other stuff. Let’s start with the review and see how the 800 Diamond from 10 years ago scores.

This A3S – score review is quite simple, with 3 main chapters:

  • The first part of the score focuses on SIGHT. The total score is 40 points maximum.
  • The second part focuses on the SOUND aspects of the device with a maximum of 50 points.
  • Then we give the device a value score with a maximum of 10 points.

The SIGHT and SOUND Audio score rates the amplifier in various sub-categories and the value to put it into perspective with other devices.
