    They look stunning. I'm sure they sound... like B&W's. ..

    You would be accurate on that one. We didn't have a pair of 802d2's on hand for an A-B comparison but the basic character of B&W speakers has not been discarded for the new model. I would consider this an evolution rather than a revolution. Personally, I liked the older models, such as the 801's with the big woofer and the metal dome tweeter. I've never been able to get excited about the diamond tweeter, it sounds kind of dead to me.

    I can't wait to hear these. The looks are growing on me - fast. And I still remember my 801F's very fondly.

    I really like the looks too. It's just that the sound didn't blow me away. I would wait for the Sopra 3. : )

    Re: 802 d3

    I got to see and hear them last week. The bookshelf and the 803 floor standing speaker. Both were great with a very open mid range. The top end had a vibrancy and energy to it that was very impressive. My only criticism was that I found female vocals slightly sibilant. It was hooked up to Classe electronics.

    I am very sensitive to sibilance. Any hint and I'd be out. Thank you for your thoughts.
