The new standard in audio quality which other manufacturers will endeavour to emulate. The 801 is the flagship of the Diamond 4 series and for good reason; these reference quality floor-standing speakers are brimming with all the latest technologies seen throughout the 800 range. For industry-topping sound, look no further than these iconic floor-standers. 801 D4 is defined by it. In each of its incarnations over the decades, 801 has always been the most advanced loudspeaker that we know to make at that particular point in time, a showcase of all our newest technologies and most original thinking.Small wonder it has become an icon. Matrix bracing uses interlocking panels to reinforce loudspeaker cabinet walls in all directions internally, reducing resonance and creating a more believable soundstage. The Matrix assembly in 801 D4 is our best yet, upgraded with extensive aluminium bracing to reinforce key stress points. The all-aluminium Turbine Head houses our Continuum. Midrange cone in a stiff and critically damped enclosure to eliminate unwanted resonances. At the same time, it's decoupled from both the bass enclosure and the tweeter body. The most realistic midrange sound yet. Sometimes, making a big difference takes unconventional thinking. Our new Biomimetic Suspension revolutionises midrange performance by greatly reducing the unwanted air pressure and coloration that a traditional fabric spider can generate.
Midrange transparency you wouldn't believe. Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. We question, we examine, we understand and then we evolve.We use computer modelling to explore and reimagine every aspect of loudspeaker design. Learn more about all the technologies that combine to make 800 Series Diamond so special here. Refined, elegant cabinet proportions plus luxurious, premium detailing combine to make this the most premium 800 Series Diamond range yet. The first and most obvious change is the addition of a fourth finish to the line-up.
The new range now includes a Satin Walnut finish, joining the established selection of Gloss Black, White and Satin Rosenut. Every stereo model in the range also enjoys a significantly upgraded cabinet design with an all-new rigid, cast aluminium top section - replacing the previous wooden version - to offer even greater stiffness and thus improve cabinet quietness still further. In a luxurious touch, the profile of the new aluminium top is finished in'Leather by Connolly' - in black for dark cabinets (Black, Satin Rosenut) and light grey for lighter finishes (White, Satin Walnut). Every model in the range adopts a revised version of the iconic Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top housing, with a new, elongated tube-loading system to produce an even more open sound for high frequencies. This supremely stiff enclosure deftly resists unwanted resonance and is an exceptional acoustic form - especially when combined with a new two-point decoupling system that isolates it from the rest of the loudspeaker more effectively than ever.As before, the Solid Body Tweeter is milled from a single solid block of aluminium and now, it uses an anodised finish, either dark or light depending on the cabinet colour, to celebrate that fact. Finally, the range introduces three entirely new cabinet forms. The 805 D4 and 804 D4 stereo models adopt the reverse-wrap cabinet design first introduced in 2015 for the larger speakers in the series. This new form reduces the profile of each cabinet's front baffle while dramatically increasing the overall rigidity of the complete system.
It also allows crossovers to now be mounted in dedicated spaces on the rear of each speaker, housed behind the rigid aluminium spines. The 804 D4 builds on the potential of its new configuration by adding a downward-firing port with an integral aluminium plinth - again, much like the form used by the larger floorstanding speakers in the range. Alongside the 805 D4 and 804 D4, the all-new HTM82 D4 centre speaker adopts the reverse-wrap cabinet form of its siblings, for superior acoustic and mechanical performance.Diamond tweeter Solid body Tweeter-on-Top Continuum.
