When it comes to high-end speakers Bowers & Wilkins, the maker of the highly popular Zeppelin iPod dock, is among the best. Last week the company launched a new 800 Series Diamond loudspeaker, the first new update of the 800 series in six years.The product for the first time includes a diamond dome tweeter.
The new series, the company said, boasts “vastly improved performance across the board and for the first time the inclusion of a diamond dome tweeter in every speaker in the seven-model range.”
New advances, in addition to the diamond dome tweeter, include a new surround material, improved bass performance, and new oxygen-free-copper speaker terminals and links.
The Diamond series will be available in February in seven versions, ranging from the HTM4 Diamond (US$2,500 per pair) to the 800 Diamond (US$24,000 per pair.)
