B&W (Bowers and Wilkins) Signature 800 Speakers - Super Rare Limited Edition


One of the rarest B&W speakers ever made in a gorgeous Tiger's-Eye Maple Finish.  

The speakers are a pair of the super rare Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus 800 Signature Edition, with real British made leather from "Connolly Leather Limited" founded back in 1878.  They were also prominently featured as our System of the Week back in September of 2019.

Incredible bass response and smooth highs, and just as capable as the latest 800's from this legendary brand at a fraction of the cost. 

By far the most unique finish that we have seen... In near perfect condition with no signs of use or abuse. New factory tweeters and midrange drivers were professionally installed for flawless future operation.  

In perfect working condition, fully tested in our lab and in our listening room (for longer than usual!).

Together these speakers weigh several hundred pounds and will therefore ship on a securely built and packaged shipping pallet via professional freight courier.
