When clients tell us that they don't like the sound of modern speakers because they are too bright and analytical, we often point them to B&W's from this era.

While they are super dynamic and can deliver a good modern punch, they lack the edginess or "brightness" of modern speakers, resulting in a more natural sound.

The 802 series in all its iterations are one of our best selling vintage speakers.

These are the Series 80 which feature controls on the rear to tune the speakers to your liking, plus a sealed bass cabinet for better low end control.

All drivers are in absolute perfect working condition. The lower cabinets were touched up with a wood stain while the heads were freshened up with a coat of paint. Fabric top has some signs of wear and the tweeter grills are missing, but not needed if you use the grills.

Delivered to your door for a flat $500 via freight anywhere in the contiguous US. We can ship internationally just contact us for a quote. Local pickup from our shop in Glen Rock, NJ is also most welcome.
