Boasting an enhanced Diamond Dome Tweeter – this increases efficiency and improves the dynamic range – and bass has been given a quad-magnet design which reduces distortion and the like.

As with all B&W kit, the tech inside is proprietary, with the 800 Series Diamond housing Kevlar FST mid-range drivers, Nautilus tube-loaded tweeters, Matrix enclosures and the unique sphere / tube heads.

Yes, this means that the mid ranges are bullet-proof.

Available in Rosenut, Cherrywood, and Piano Black, these premium speakers have prices starting from £3,750 per pair.

If you want the all-consuming version, then you will be looking to spend £18,500 per pair. Ouch.
