Re: B&W Speakers Owners - Post about Bowers & Wilkins Speakers
 
In the past year I have been looking at 5 different speaker company's and have finally settled on B & W which to me sounded the best in my price range. I have been looking at the 802D's and thought at first that I would use a P5 to power them because I was told that they are power hungry. After doing more research I was going to get the CA-5200 and use four of the channels to power them and the last for a center channel. This got me thinking again that maybe I should use the Ref1000's for half the price and use the remaining money to buy a Fathom f113 which is the subwoofer that I have been saving to get for the past two years.

Now I am more confused than ever does any B & W owners out there have some good advice and I know that it comes down to preference to sound quality and that my ears are the best for that determination, but there is so many options and combinations that some feed back is much appreciated.

Not an owner, because I dont like them :)
I save only the Signature line and I had the pleasure to listen to a pair of Signature Diamont last friday. Excellent pair with beautiful finishes and size that can fit most ambients (unlike the big 800).

For people looking at the 800 I recommend them to listen to the Signature 30 instead.

Ah old Frank Zappa, nothing like powerfully atonal music to set off the neighbors!

FWIW I used to live in a condo and in a year of living there only ever met the neighbor across the hall. I got a subwoofer one day and hooked it up. Prodigy "Smack My Bitch Up" had my neighbor at the door in mere seconds!
