Second iteration of this incredibly successful speaker line. The 804S is a 3-way speaker capable of tremendous imaging and clarity thanks to the cabinet design and specially the tweeter.

This S version featured an upgraded Rohacell woofer far superior and stiffer version/material found in the 804N.

Best of all, these earlier pre-diamond tweeters were a bit more laid back and produced less listener fatigue so we like this model more than the later.

Brand Background:
Excellence, uncompromised and uncompromising. The world’s most famous recording studios demand Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series loudspeakers, for no other reason than they represent the pinnacle of sonic supremacy.

One owner since new who took great care of both speakers and even kept all the original packing materials! The protective fabric is still present on the grills so they don't scratch the cabinets.  

Amplifier Recommendations:
Both solid state and tube should pair well with these speakers. Manufacturer recommends up to 200W. We feel the sweet spot is probably 75W tube or 100W solid state.

Room Size Recommendation:
Mid to Large Size Room

Dual set of 5 way binding posts accepting banana and spades. Includes high-quality upgraded jumpers in case you'd like to single wire to your amp.

General Sound:
Full range warm sound capable of great detail and dynamics.  

Cosmetic condition:
We rated this a 8 with with little to no signs of use and wear. See our detailed rating description here

The SkyFi Testing Process for Speakers:
Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.

After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.
