Bowers & Wilkins
805 D3 Bookshelf Speakers
The unique 805 D3 is the only speaker of its size to feature the Diamond dome tweeter, isolated in its own solid-body tweeter assembly for precise imaging and clarity.
Hear small details in a big way
Mounted atop the main enclosure, the Diamond dome tweeter in its solid aluminum housing delivers space, ambience and precise soundstage imaging.
Truly amazing sound
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone mid/bass driver.
The 805 D3's front-venting port allows superb weight from a speaker so compact, with Flowport™ technology speeding and smoothing the airflow for powerful bass without distortion.

"Endearing, wonderfully blissful for extended listening sessions, handsomely styled, nicely proportioned and well dressed. Like I said at the start of this review, if the B&W 805D3 were a person, I’d invite them to live in."
