B&W (Bowers and Wilkins) Nautilus 805S Speakers in a Cherrywood Finish

$2,499

The 805S tend to be our fastest selling speakers, likely due to their compact size yet incredible performance. 

This set is the second generation designated with an "S" featuring upgraded tweeters. (The latest version will set you back $6k.)

These are in perfect working condition in a Cherrywood finish with only a few slight signs of use. 

Grilles are not included and we think these look MUCH better without.  If you want a set you should still be able to purchase them directly through B&W on your own.

Local pickup will include the pictured stands at no additional charge. Shipping them will cost a bit extra.

More from B&W:

"The 805S is a compact stand-mount 2-way system that gives a surprisingly full sound for its size and will not intrude into the room.

Here, woven Kevlar® is the cone material of choice for the role of combined bass and midrange driver. Distortion levels are minimized with our novel ‘Balanced Drive’. First introduced in the Signature 805, Balanced Drive involves the addition of copper and aluminium components to the magnet system to reduce variations in voice coil inductance as the coil moves in the magnetic field. It’s a distortion-producing mechanism that particularly affects bass / midrange drivers and can impair clarity if not attended to.

A separate stand is available that visually matches the style of the 805S and supports it firmly at the correct listening height."

From an online review written by Jack Roberts via dagogo.com:

"The 805S does a very good job with voices, and it is extremely easy to listen to for long periods of time. Their performance is more coherent than any B&W I have ever heard, and they hold their own with the single-driver speakers in coherency if not transparency. Their bass is taut, big, bold, and dynamic. They are vastly improved in the area of PraT over the Nautilus 805s. They have a beautiful top-end that in the S series blends seamlessly with the midrange. All in all, they are simply more enjoyable musically and more fun than the previous 805 models. Last, I should share that, the truth is the rest of my family thought these were the best of the mini-monitors I have had in for review."
