Sound and Image rate the Bowers and Wilkins speaker range exceptionally highly.
Beautiful, rich sound. Bowers and Wilkins says: Quality of Sound reigns supreme Bowers & Wilkins core belief remains unchanged: that a high-fidelity loudspeaker should be to the ear what a flawless pane of glass is to the eye; allowing the clear passage of a sensory image, uncorrupted and faithful in every last nuance to the original.
Bowers & Wilkins has a long history of technological innovation in its pursuit of the perfect loudspeaker. Whether its through the innovative use of materials such as Kevlar and Diamond, new solutions to complex engineering conundrums, or eureka moments of brilliance, Bowers & Wilkins engineers constantly strive to produce the best possible sound.
In the 1980s Bowers immersed himself more deeply in the research and development work of the company, and was instrumental in setting up and developing the Steyning Research Establishment.
This separation of research and production allowed a freedom of thought and experimentation that would later lead to some of Bowers & Wilkins most innovative technologies and iconic, and popular products. It was a major tenet of John Bowers, and remains at the core values of Bowers & Wilkins to this day.
Bowers also remained an avid fan of classical music. Keeping the focus of Bowers & Wilkins on the importance of loudspeakers bringing the listener as close as possible to the sound that the recording artists and engineers heard in the studio. John Bowers passed away in 1987, but this vision remains at the heart of the company that he founded. The Steyning Research Establishment continues to innovate and the legacy of Bowers passion for technological experimentation can be seen in the likes of Nautilus, and other current Bowers & Wilkins products.
Nautilus symbolises all the qualities of innovation, dedication and love of music which have inspired Bowers & Wilkins engineers, designers and production teams ever since our company was established over 40 years ago. The Nautilus offers a unique chance to hear music exactly as recorded: detailed, vibrantly alive, full of power and unhindered by speaker distortion or cabinet diffraction. Our research teams dedicated much of their creative effort to eliminating distortion in all its various forms. The Nautilus has therefore become the first in the world to achieve near zero cabinet coloration.
Why use diamond for tweeter domes? It may seem extravagant, but the move is simply an extension of Bowers & Wilkinss pursuit of the perfect loudspeaker. One element of our quest for the best is the development of drive units that neither add nor subtract from the signal. In a tweeter, that means creating a dome that remains rigid, exhibiting perfectly piston-like behaviour, as far up the frequency scale as possible. Best for this are materials with a high stiffness to density ratio – which is where diamond comes in.
Unique to Bowers & Wilkins, Matrix interlocking panels take cabinet bracing to the ultimate level. With powerful bass drivers trying to shake the cabinet and high air pressures inside trying to make the panels flex and blur the sound, this three-dimensional honeycomb structure reinforces the cabinet at small intervals and in every direction. Offering a dramatic cut in the level of cabinet coloration, Matrix allows you to focus on where the performers are, rather than being aware of where the speakers are
