Bowers & Wilkins Announce 800 Series Diamond range

Bowers & Wilkins have announced their new 800 Series Diamond Range that will be available from Acoustica from September 2021. Here is the announcement:

We are delighted and proud to introduce the fourth generation Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series Diamond range. It’s a challenge that has occupied the past six years of the finest minds at SRE, home of the world-renowned Bowers & Wilkins engineering team. Their solution is to combine continuous improvement of every component in each design with innovative and proprietary technology that re-imagines the fundamental basics of a conventional loudspeaker drive unit: the new, unique and revolutionary Biomimetic Suspension.

The new 800 Series Diamond range continues to feature seven models, beginning with the two-way 805 D4 stand-mount speaker. That’s joined by a series of three-way floorstanding models, including the 804 D4, 803 D4 and 802 D4. For the flagship model in the range, Bowers & Wilkins is pleased to reintroduce an iconic name to its portfolio, with the launch of 801 D4 to replace the existing 800 D3. For home theatre use, the HTM81 D4 and HTM82 D4 provide a pair of high-performance centre channel speakers to complete the range.

Every new model in the range combines hundreds of detail improvements plus several entirely new technologies to create the most transparent, detailed and natural-sounding series of loudspeakers Bowers & Wilkins has ever produced.

GroundARAY Demonstration – It really works!

 

On 5th May we were privileged to have a demonstration of the new Chord GroundARAY that is announced this week. This was part of a wider demonstration of Speaker Cables and Interconnects. See demonstration details here. We have not been able to share our experiences with the GroundARAY until now!

For the GroundARAY demonstration we used the following system elements, complemented by Chord Sarum Interconnects and Speaker cables:

  • Naim NDX2 with Chord Bridge fitted and connected through English Electric 8Switch
  • Naim NAC 282 preamp with HiCap DR Power Supply
  • Naim NAP 250 DR Power Amplifier
  • Focal Sopra No2 Speakers
  • Music Works Power Block with Chord Shawline Mains Leads

Our first listening was with the GroundARAY connected to one of the inputs on the NDX2. Immediately we noticed a wider dynamic range, more detail in lower frequency vocals and a significantly quieter background. These devices really do work!

Moving forward we added a second GroundARAY to the NAC 282 and this added even more benefits to those already experienced with the GroundARAY used on only the NDX2.

We tried positioning the GroundARAY on a range of equipment and, by and large, the more GroundARAYs the greater the improvement, so we can certainly support Chord’s recommendation of starting with the source and adding more when you want to.

For more information and/or to arrange a demo please Contact us.

Chord Announce GroundARAY

Chord GroundARAY consists of 5 separate ARAY systems that each address different high-frequency noise groups this achieves a dramatically reduced noise floor resulting in a hugely increased musical performance from any product you add a Chord GroundARAY too.

Chord Company recommend starting with the source and working through your system, on streaming based systems this could be a router and / or a data switch.

In the development of GroundARAY Chord Company found adding the RJ45 model to the English Electric 8 or 16 switch made a huge benefit on performance.

You can then add more GroundARAYs to the rest of your system e.g., Streamer, DAC, Preamp and so on.

Available with many different connection options – XLR (male or female) RCA, USB, HDMI, 5 pin DIN, BNC & RJ45
