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.

Smooth delivery

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.

 "The D3s are hugely capable standmounters. They lead the class when it comes to resolution and clarity"

"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."
