Slightly taller than its NautilusTM 801 predecessor and with
a revised design for the plinth and underside of the cabinet, the 801D is easier on the eye despite its size. It has a larger volume than the 800D and a bass alignment suited to rooms with a more controlled acoustic.

Bass is provided by a single 15” Rohacell® sandwich cone driver, supported by a down-firing FlowportTM. With the same midrange and tweeter arrangement as the 800D, the 801D also combines power with subtlety. The diamond dome tweeter is amazing in its ability to reproduce high frequencies in the most natural way – everything is there as it should be, without exaggeration.

As with all the 800 Series systems, the minimalist approach to crossover design and the use of the finest components ensures all the drivers combine to form a coherent whole.
