Bose QuietComfort 35 II vs Bowers and Wilkins PX vs Sony WH-1000XM2

What Hi-Fi? write …. Three brilliant noise-cancelling options – but which is best? Scenario one: you’re on the train home after a long day.

B&W 804D test review

HiFi World write: The 804Ds were at times breathtakingly pure and concise; B&W’s engineering shines through to make them a special experience, especially with classical music. There were times with closely recorded Rock that treble was just too strong: Steve Earle’s ‘Esmeralda’s Hollywood’ had tambourine hissing at me with demented strength. Overall though, the 804Ds […]

BOWERS and WILKINS: 683 S2 loudspeaker – test review

Stereophile: For some time now I’ve wanted to upgrade my weekend system in Connecticut, and have been surveying three-way floorstanding speakers priced below about $2500/pair.

BOWERS and WILKINS: 803D2s versus Icon Audio MB845i Sig

BOWERS and WILKINS: Bi-amping vs Bi-wiring (25 responses so far)

The thread starts: I am looking for feedback on bi-amping these amazing speakers. I currently own a CA-2200 amp and it seems 200w per channel may not be adequate to realize full potential of 800D2. So i was thinking of bi-amping two classe ca-2200 for L/R speakers, thus feeding 400w each to Left and Right […]

BOWERS and WILKINS: 800 Diamond – test review

Kalman Rubinson: Bowers & Wilkins’ 800 Diamond was, overall, simply a pleasure to listen to. B&W continues to improve the underlying technology of its 800 series speakers and the result is apparent in the 800 Diamond’s sound. Its overall honesty, attested to by the 800 series’ heritage as studio monitors, lets the 800 Diamond get […]
