The Audiophiliac Speaker of the Year: Bowers & Wilkins 805 D3 $6,000

“Some high-resolution speakers reveal too much about how nasty a ragged recording sounds, so I was especially happy about the way the 805 D3 sounded when I played a $2 “Ventures Golden Greats” LP I bought at a record fair a few years ago. Man, the jangly electric guitars, bathed in massive reverberation played with a kicking rhythm section, sounded awesome. Talk about a wall of sound! The energy was palpable — 50-year-old music still sounded fresh!
