    B&W 805D3ís

    The B&W 805D3ís arrived. The stands are coming soon, so we are temporarily using these Harbeth HiFI Racks stands.

    Hooked to the NAIM SuperNait 3, they are very impressive right out of the box. Bass is fantastic, too end is very airy and they have all the goodness of a great two way. For $6k, I have to say, this is a bargain in high end audio. Put in the right sized room and paired with something like NAIM, these are fantastic little performers. Color me highly impressed right out of the box.

    That would be a really good little system.

    The 800 series looks really good in white, too.

    Had an earlier generation of these in 2000 - 2002. Always, a nice performer.
