800 D3 Floorstanding Speakers

The flagship of the 800 Series Diamond range is a no-compromise design: behind that strong visual statement is half a century of design and engineering, all in the cause of greater musical insight and impact.


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.

Less resonance, more dispersion

The Turbine Head's massive midrange housing is carefully shaped and inert, ensuring voices and instruments are delivered with extreme purity.

Truly amazing sound

Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone midrange driver.

Nimble and powerful

Solid, dramatic bass is delivered through the rigidity and lightness of the uniquely-shaped, variable thickness Aerofoil™ cone.

Braced for impact

Unwanted resonances can blunt the punch of the sound: advanced Matrix bracing keeps the cabinet ultra-rigid and damps out superfluous vibrations.

Stable foundations

Perfect sound is about moving air, not the speakers: a stable plinth makes for easy positioning, then keeps it rock-solid for listening.

If you have been waiting for this new version you've done the right thing, because B&W has significantly improved it"

"At a first glance the new 800 D3 speakers are built around the same principles like their successful predecessors, 800 Diamonds. And in fact they are – only that everything is a bit more extreme here - the cabinet, drivers, materials and the way the speakers look. The changes paid off as the sound has improved too. A lot"
