805 Diamond

B&W Speakers > 800 Series Diamond > 805 Diamond

You asked for it. And now you’ve got it. The 805 Diamond is an industry world-first – the only speaker of its size and type to incorporate true studio-grade technology in the form of a diamond dome tweeter. Experience remarkable, lifelike sound from a discreet speaker that fits almost anywhere. Diamond dome tweeters have long been considered an exclusive luxury in the world of audio – a refinement to be reserved only for the most expensive, studio-sized loudspeakers. No longer. The 805 Diamond is nothing less than a revolution in speaker design: the first speaker of its size and at this price point to come with a diamond tweeter. Because studio-quality sound shouldn’t just be for studios. Small but perfectly formed, the 805 Diamond will fit almost everywhere. Tucked away on a bookshelf or positioned on its specially designed stand, it’s perfect for smaller listening spaces. And it will serve equally well as the rear channels of a home theatre system. With 805 Diamond, you can now bring superb, breath-takingly realistic sound to places you never thought possible.
