Bowers & Wilkins has a rich history. The British company that was founded in 1966 by John Bowers has now been around for 55 years. In those nearly six decades it has made many discoveries. The tweeter on top, Kevlar cones and now Continuum as the material for the units, surroundless midrange drivers, the Nautilus […]
B&W (or Bowers & Wilkins) has released a new Music app for its Formation platform. With clearly more streaming services in it.
Yours truly was visiting a friend who was cleaning out his office; he asked me to check if there was anything interesting in music equipment. If not, the thrift store would pick it up.

A serious high-end system consisting of the top-of-the-range Accuphase range combined with the Bowers & Wilkins 800D3… their flagship. Top of the bill. But how does it sound? Is it worth […]
Bowers and Wilkins… A major British brand that has been building loudspeakers since World War II. The two showpieces are clearly the Nautilus, which looks impressive to say the least, and the 800D, where the D stands for a diamond tweeter. <!–more–> B&W has a very wide range that runs from small, affordable book halves to the 50,000 euro Nautilus floorstander. This range is divided into 5 ‘real’ series (300, 600, 700, 800 and prestige) and single design, subwoofer and custom series. The 600 series must be one of the best-selling speakers in the world, because you can see them popping up everywhere. B&W sounds full and powerful.
