For sale is one pair of Bowers & Wilkins Matrix 802 Series 3 Floorstanding speakers. The speakers are in walnut veneer in mint condition with the exception of a very tiny mark close to the bottom of one cabinet (see photo). You really need to get close to the speaker to see it. Otherwise no other marks or scratches. The drivers are all in perfect condition. These speakers have never been damaged in any way.
The sound is awesome, with a sweet treble, spectacular midrange and deep bass. Imaging is great. These speakers are a true audiophile's dream. I'm selling them because I am moving to a different home theatre setup with a matching center channel.
I have the original boxes, manual and factory sound report for each of the two speakers. They have consecutive serial numbers.
● The Matrix 802 has a highly linear, high efficiency motor system which delivers the long throw and symmetrical field required to produce an outstanding low frequency response.
● The Matrix 802 shares many of the key attributes of the Matrix 801. Its only real difference is size. Although only slightly taller than the Matrix 801, it occupies less than half the floor space. The Matrix 802 is therefore the natural choice where floorspace is limited, but the demand is still for a superb studio quality 3-way monitor.
