Bowers & Wilkins


SCROLL DOWN

Bowers & Wilkins


 
 

In 1966, John Bowers and his lifelong friend Peter Hayward founded a manufacturing company, then called B&W Electronics, in Worthing, in the south coast of England. They agreed from the outset to live modestly and plough any profits back into business to further research into the quest for the perfect loudspeaker . . .

Nautilus


Nautilus


It’s obvious that Nautilus is no ordinary loudspeaker, even before you listen to it. That’s because it’s the product of no ordinary speaker manufacturer. The Nautilus is the end result of the most ambitious research and development project Bowers & Wilkins has ever undertaken – to create, as near as possible, the perfect loudspeaker.

 
 

Redefining Sound

When Bowers & Wilkins set out to create the world’s best loudspeaker, we asked ourselves some fundamental questions. Is it possible to create a theoretically perfect speaker – one that produces next to no distortion? Does a speaker have to be a box? If you remove the box, what would a speaker look like? More importantly, what would it sound like? The result was Nautilus.

Craftsmanship

Design Icon

Nautilus demands craftsmanship from skilled people. For instance, the Nautilus shell's pearlescent finish comes from 12 carefully applied lacquer coats containing aluminium and mica particles, and a unique baking and curing system.

Nautilus is an icon of speaker design. Form followed function in a quest for audio perfection; design awards followed. Nautilus was accorded a Millennium Award and has been seen at the Design Council and the Design Museum London.

800 Series Diamond


800 Series Diamond


The choice of professional recording studios, and revered by serious hi-fi enthusiasts, the 800 Series Diamond is more than just our flagship reference speaker range. It’s the pinnacle of hi-fi loudspeaker performance.

 

True Sound

Our founder John Bowers believed the perfect speaker should be to the ear what a flawless pane of glass is to the eye. It should allow the uninterrupted passage of a sensory image, faithful in every nuance to the original. This vision became John’s goal, and he gave it a name: “true sound”.

The best loudspeaker isn’t the one that gives the most, it’s the one that loses the least
— John Bowers

Skilled Craftsmanship

At our factory in West Sussex, England, state-of-the-art automated production techniques are fused with traditional craft skills and expert human judgement. Making an 800 Series Diamond speaker takes patience, steady hands, and astonishing attention to detail. 

Diamond dome tweeters have long been considered an exclusive luxury in the world of audio – a refinement to be reserved only for the most expensive, studio-sized loudspeakers. No longer. The 805 Diamond is nothing less than a revolution in speaker design: the first speaker of its size and at this price point to come with a diamond tweeter. Because studio-quality sound shouldn’t just be for studios

Subwoofers


Subwoofers


Bowers & Wilkins’ wide range of subwoofer brings together some of the most advanced bass technology in the business. Our innovations in cabinet construction and digital control have changed the way people look at bass and raised the bar for enjoying movie sound in the home. 

Whether you require a subwoofer as the crowning glory of a high-end home theatre system, to complement the performance of a pair of bookshelf stereo loudspeakers or as part of one of our Mini Theatre systems, we have the solution for you. 

 
 

When you’ve pushed the boundaries of technological design further than anyone thought possible, what do you do? Simple: you keep pushing. The PV1 has long been regarded as something of an icon in domestic subwoofer design, both for its striking shape and superlative sonic performance. But by introducing a digital dimension for the upgraded PV1D, we think we’ve gone one better.
