I updated the Buyer condition to OBO or buy it now (which was my original intention).
I purchased in January 2012 from an authorized dealer and used in a 2-channel configuration until last week. They have 500 hours play time at low to moderate levels. The 805 Diamond is the Winner of EISA High-end Loudspeaker award 2010-2011. Matching stands are bespoke B&W that screw to the speaker base and have internal cable routing. All original boxes, manuals, stand spikes and feet, bi-wire jumpers and accompanying materials are included.
The versatility of these speakers is tremendous, stereo and multichannel applications alike. The speakers disappear with deep and wide imaging. Mid Bass response is surprisingly good and they play well with receiver level power sources or dedicated amplifiers. All of the B&W 800 series are made in England with the highest level of quality control of the manufacturing process. Color: piano black lacquer. The speakers retail pricing is $5,000 + $750 (stands)+ pretax. Complete specs available at: http://www.bowers-wilkins.com/Speakers/Home_Audio/800_Series_Diamond/805-Diamond.html
