Bowers & Wilkins 805 D4 Loudspeakers $8000 Review
November 2, 2021 § Leave a comment
Let me just tackle this up front: The 805 D4 is not a neutral loudspeaker. Nor did Bowers & Wilkins intend for it to be. They use a combination of measurements and real-world listening to voice their creations, and they don’t rely on another’s reference curve. So, if you’re looking for ruthless tonal linearity, look elsewhere, my friend. Likewise, if you prefer a rolled-off top end (you know, the kind that is forgiving to even the poorest source material), the newest Bowers & Wilkins two-way will not be your cup of tea, either. But if you’re after something altogether more vivid and exciting, if you don’t want to listen so much as to be thrilled, then the 805 D4 may be your endgame bookshelf speaker.
