The smallest 800 Series Diamond model to feature the revolutionary Turbine Head, 803 D3 is designed for clarity, power, and purity, even in modestly-sized listening rooms. The 803 D3 is the first of its kind: a full-range, studio-quality speaker built for the home, and the most compact headed unit that B&W have ever produced.While this elegant speaker comes in a living room-friendly size, it shares the same revolutionary technologies and design features as its larger sibling, including the Turbine head and reverse-wrap cabinet. Hear small details in a big way.
Mounted atop the main enclosure, the Diamond dome tweeter in its solid aluminium housing delivers space, ambience and precise soundstage imaging. The Turbine Head's massive midrange housing is carefully shaped and inert, ensuring voices and instruments are delivered with extreme purity. Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate ContinuumT cone midrange driver. Solid, dramatic bass is delivered through the rigidity and lightness of the uniquely-shaped variable thickness AerofoilT cone. Unwanted resonances can blunt the punch of the sound: advanced Matrix bracing keeps the cabinet ultra-rigid and damps out superfluous vibrations.Perfect sound is about moving air, not the speakers: a stable plinth makes for easy positioning, then keeps it rock-solid for listening. I find myself constantly shuffling through my music collection just to hear what they can do. They're proving rather addictive. These speakers sound as great as they look.
