    “I very much enjoyed my time with the Bowers & Wilkins 805 D3. It is a superbly engineered, superb-sounding thoroughbred of a speaker. Its transparency, dynamic-range capability, and combination of low frequency weight and control are something special.”
    CNET.com - December 2016
    Does anyone "need" a speaker as good as a Bowers & Wilkins 805 D3? Of course not, and no one needs to take a Hawaiian vacation, order hand-crafted boots, drink fine wines or buy a Leica camera. But if you're lucky enough to afford these things and really love music, the 805 D3 is well worth the cost. These speakers will provide many years of pleasure -- decades, even."
