Bowers & Wilkins introduces Prestige Editions with premium Santos Rosewood finish

Bowers & Wilkins has created new Prestige Editions of its 802 and 805 loudspeakers, featuring a Santos Rosewood finish.

The 802 and 805 Prestige Edition models are acoustically unchanged from the standard 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers and feature the same advanced specification, including the Diamond dome tweeter, Turbine Head, Continuum and Aerofoil drive units and Matrix cabinet construction.

The high-gloss Santos Rosewood finish is prepared by hand by skilled Bowers & Wilkins craftsmen at the company’s factory in the UK. Crafting each cabinet is labour intensive, with the finishing process requiring 40% more manufacturing time than a standard 800 Series Diamond loudspeaker.

Bowers & Wilkins highlights the distinctive Santos Rosewood veneer used on each loudspeaker with thirteen coats of lacquer to deliver a rich finish with a deep luxurious colour and distinctive grain pattern. The process to create the finish takes over four weeks.

The stand mount 805 Prestige Edition costs £5,500 per pair; the larger floor standing 802 Prestige Edition is £19,500 per pair.
