Shortcomings: There are none.
Conclusion: The B&W Matrix 800 redefines the art of loudspeaker design. To this
end, it goes far beyond anything else currently available, regardless of
price or size. While I can't imagine anyone not being impressed with
the sheer dynamic capabilities and enormous soundstage of this speaker,
it is far too demanding of time and ancillary electronics for the casual
listener. Musically, it has no peers. The B&W 800 is the
ultimate musicians' reference transducer, retrieving every nuance of the
recorded performance. In fact, I'm putting my money where my music is,
and buying the review pair. So if you want the best, and are searching
for that elusive dream of the absolute, there is nothing, short of the
real thing, that will bring you closer to live music.
