The brand new PX7 has just arrived! This is great news! 
Get your hands on a pair today!


Bowers & Wilkins recently revealed its latest additions to its PX range, and sitting at the top is the Bowers & Wilkins PX7. The new headphones features four levels of active noise cancellation, including an adaptive auto mode that adjusts the levels of ambient noise to fit your environment.

Let’s hear just what you’ve been missing out on, with the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 -

Legendary sound
As the flagship headphones from the company that’s world-famous for its audio products, the PX7s sound something special. Drivers that push the sound forward. The 43.6mm drivers in the PX7 are the largest in our headphone collection, built and tuned by the same engineers behind the Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series Diamond speakers used in Abbey Road Studios. This means you get sensational levels of detail and realism that others simply gloss over. The larger, over ear size also gives them the power to impress.

The calling card of the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones, is their use of Qualcomm's aptxHD Adaptive codec, which is designed to deliver "robust, low latency, high resolution wireless technology", according to the company.

Cancels noise OUT
Making sure you hear every drop of detail from the high resolution drivers, ANC (Adaptive Noise Cancelling) ensures an inky dark background. Adaptive noise cancelling that automatically responds to your environment, keeping the outside world out of the music. So… whether you’re at a busy office, restaurant, travelling by train or plane, adaptive noise cancelation measures the background and cancels it out – letting you concentrate on the music.

Sleek design – race-car inspired
The woven carbon fibre composite arms of the PX7 mimic the strength and agility of the fastest vehicles in the world, channelling pure sound to you and holding up against everyday wear and tear. Throw them in your bag and get ready to jump into sound. They also come with a storage case for protection when not in use.

Extended battery life
Battery life comes in at 30 hours (when listening to music with ANC turned on), and if you’re in a hurry, just 15 minutes of charge is enough for five hours playback.

Intuition  
They might be packed with technology, but that doesn’t make the PX7s difficult to use. In fact, they’re amongst the most user-friendly headphones in their class. The PX7 obeys your every move. Lift an ear pad to hear what’s happening around you and the music automatically stops. Put it back and the music plays on.

Our verdict –
All round accomplishment and a genuine recommendation for all those who expect high quality noise cancelling headphones. The Bowers & Wilkins PX7 are on-ear headphones at the highest technical level, which is right at the top when it comes to sound. The Bowers & Wilkins PX7 shows their strengths both as travel headphones, and as a constant companion in everyday urban life between open-plan offices, planes, trains and restaurants.

What Hi-Fi – 5 Star review says - “All a pair of headphones can do is sound, look and feel great – and the B&W PX7s tick all three boxes.”

Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series VS Bowers & Wilkins 700 Series – which one is for YOU!

|

Both Series’ have had significant upgardes to them in recent years. Let’s take a look at these improvements in hope that it will give you a clearer view on which series will suit YOU best!


The Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series is the entry point in the company's latest range of speakers. The 600 Series is one of the most popular lines of speakers in hi-fi history, had a serious renovation. Drawing on tech first seen on the flagship B&W 800 Series Diamond range, the 600 Series promises high-end sound at competitive prices – as the series has always done.

The key thing is that these are the most affordable speakers to use B&W’s new Continuum Cone midrange driver. It’s a woven composite with an aluminised structure. Compared to the Kevlar cone that B&W has traditionally used, Continuum promises less unwanted noise, making for a cleaner and more insightful sound. The new B&W 600 series also has an updated version of the tried-and-tested Decoupled Double Dome Tweeter. Aesthetically, the old white finish is carried over to the new 600 Series, but the old black ash vinyl wrap has been replaced with something lightly textured and more modern. B&W also took its current line of 600 series subwoofers and upgraded the exterior to complement the new 600 speakers, giving you a black or white choice there as well.

"The 600 Series is the perfect entry point into the Bowers & Wilkins high-fidelity audio experience," said Richard Campbell, Chief Revenue Officer at Bowers & Wilkins. "The new 600 Series embodies the original ethos of John Bowers' mission to deliver best sound quality and to set new standards for audio performance."

Reviews –

Digital Trends - The performance was immediately impressive, with the new speakers sounding more organic, less coloured, and more accurate, to boot.

Home Theatre Review -  The new 600 Series is the most affordable range to incorporate the remarkable Continuumä Cone midrange driver, developed and exclusively manufactured by Bowers & Wilkins to improve upon the transparency and accuracy of the iconic Kevlar cone.

Techradar - It’s a great sounding line-up, and one that’s been long awaited, with Bowers and Wilkins perfecting the build over several years since the launch of the last series. 

Our Verdict - This range is aimed at home cinema enthusiasts as much as for those looking to upgrade stereo systems. The Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series revealed a smoother, more detailed sound with a broader soundstage. The accuracy is also much better that than their predecessors. Exceptional performance and decent value for money.


Take things up at notch with the Bowers & Wilkins 700 Series…..


Combining cutting-edge acoustic engineering and classic cabinet design, the 700 Series is inspired by recording studios, and made for living rooms.These speakers are not cheap, but everything about them screams quality; from their elegant classic-looking design to the incorporation of the company’s latest cutting-edge acoustic engineering. The 700 Series is placed below the 800 Series Diamond range in the Bowers & Wilkins home audio speakers lineup, but incorporates some of the 800 Series technologies, such as the Continuum Cone midrange, solid body tweeter housing, and Aerofoil profile bass drivers. Additionally, Bowers & Wilkins also implements new technologies in the 700 Series speakers most notably the Carbon Dome tweeter. The combination of these technologies, alongside the countless hours of tuning by the very best engineers in the business, is a range of loudspeakers that has to be heard to be believe. All models in the 700 Series are available in three finishes — satin white, gloss black and a deep Rosenut veneer.

From Richard Campbell, Chief Revenue Officer at Bowers & Wilkins - “The new 700 Series develops the ethos of the CM Series it replaces, adds technology from the 800 Series Diamond and new, bespoke acoustic innovations to produce the best-performing range of loudspeakers in its class.”

Home Theatre Review -  With elegant design and excellent sonic performance in stereo and surround applications, B&W has created a winner in the 700 SERIES SPEAKER SYSTEM.

Stereophile - This combination from Bowers and Wilkins’ 700 Series is a serious delight for both stereo and surround music. The system isn’t cheap, but we doubt you’ll get better sound for the money.

Our Verdict - Gorgeous design, punchy low-mids, wide soundstage, perfect for your living room. The 700 Series has an excellent reputation for outstanding value and exemplary audio performance.

Our Advice - listen to both and decide where the cost/benefit are from the article above...... We would say the 700s are cleaner but each series has a little bit different transfer function, and therefore, sound. It’s a matter of opinion and budget! Come in and hear for yourself.

802 D3 - Studio quality sound in any home

|



The Bowers & Wilkins 802 D3 delivers pristine, high-performance sound in any environment. Its Diamond tweeter partners with a Continuum cone to ensure revealing natural sound that will leave you speechless. The 802 Diamond is the smaller of the two 'headed' models in the 800 Series Diamond. It offers immense levels of scale and clarity, and is destined to be a favourite among audiophiles for many years to come.

Continuum cone
The Continuum cone delivers pristine midrange performance by effectively negating the break-up behaviour that can adversely effect this all-important part of the spectrum.

Plinth
The innovative plinth provides an incredibly solid base for the 800 Series Diamond. The spikes are ideally positioned below the cabinet, and ingenious engineering allows you to switch between castors and spikes with ease.

Solid body tweeter
The Diamond dome tweeter is housed in a solid piece of aluminium. This mechanically inert structure provides an incredibly rigid platform from which the tweeter can deliver crystal clear sound.

Matrix
Bracing is essential in keeping a speaker stable, so the character of instruments comes through cleanly. Developed using computer modelling and constructed from wood ply with metal reinforcement, Matrix offers the ultimate in bracing.

Legendary Nautilus™features
The 802 Diamond features our legendary Nautilus™ tapering tube drive unit technology. First pioneered on our trailblazing Nautilus speaker, the tubes work like horns in reverse, minimising colouration by soaking up excess sound energy from the back of the driver. So that all that emerges from the front is the most fully formed, focused and pristine sound.

If you’re looking for a speaker with the power, clarity and presence of the mighty 800 Diamond, but your listening area can’t quite accommodate its studio-sized proportions, the 802 Diamond is the answer. The slimmer dimensions of the 802 Diamond make it an easier fit for living spaces and the basic design retains nearly all of the features of the top-of-the-range 800 Diamond. A win-win situation!

A pocket powerhouse - the Audiolab 8300MB has it all

|

The Audiolab 8300MB is a mono power amplifier (or "mono block") that will give you a pre/power combo capable of high end performance for far less than "high end" money.

Huge power reserves
With a power output of 250 watts into an 8 ohm load or an immense 350 watts into a 4 ohm load, the 8300MB won't be phased by even the most awkward speaker or largest room. This level of power gives the 8300MB the ability to always sound controlled, dynamic and with enough in reserve for distortion-free crescendos. 8300MB’s full power output is delivered into any loudspeaker load – unconditionally.

Awesome for stereo or home cinema use
This mono power amp is ideal for not just stereo systems but also high-end home cinema systems, where individual channels can each feature their own dedicated power amps. A cinema system with five, seven or even nine separate power amplifiers sounds simply sensational and reaches reference standards of playback. Massive reserves of power are available for high current drive capability to power and control the mightiest of speakers.

Bi Amping and Tri Amping Options
As a single channel power amplifier, the 8300MB is most commonly used in pairs, with one power amplifier driving each speaker. However, you can also use a single 8300MB to drive each set of drivers on your speaker, so for bi-wirable speakers (that have a separate set of terminals for high frequency HF and low frequency LF drivers), you can run 4 x 8300MB with two on each speaker - one for HF and one for LF drivers.

In the case of tr-wirable speakers, you can run 6 x 8300MB with three on each speaker - one for HF, one for mid frequency MF drivers (which are usually combined with the LF connections on bi-wirable speakers) and one for LF drivers.

Audiolab signature look
Bearing a close resemblance to other Audiolab components, the 8300MB has timeless good looks. Ideal in both sonic and aesthetic attributes, the 8300MB is the perfect match for the 8300CD with its built-in pre-amp. Two 8300MBs are also the perfect upgrade for the 8300A integrated amp. Full metal construction including an aluminium front panel not only provides a luxurious look but also proves resistant to both electrical and mechanical interference.

B&W AM-1 | The sun is out!! It’s time to party on your patio with the AM-1’s.

|


Experience the perfect sonic atmosphere and add extra kick in seasonal living to your garden, patio, or swimming pool areas this Summer! Imagine enjoying your favourite relaxation music, or a soothing audio stream, or perhaps creative radio on a gorgeous late afternoon, while at the braai, or even under romantic moonlight! The B&W AM-1 effortlessly extends the musical mood of the listening room to your home's living spaces!

The AM-1 Architectural Monitor offers a unique combination of high-quality sound and supreme flexibility. Articulate, exciting and powerful the AM-1 delivers all the performance expected of a Bowers & Wilkins loudspeaker. The AM-1 is suitable for installation in a wide range of outdoor and indoor applications. It is available in white or black finishes. 

Articulate, exciting and powerful, AM-1 avoids the compromises commonly associated with all-weather monitors, and delivers all the performance expected of a Bowers & Wilkins loudspeaker. A two-way design, it features an inverted drive unit configuration, with the AM-1’s 1inch (25mm) aluminium-dome tweeter mounted below rather than above a 5inch (130mm) glassfibre bass/midrange driver. This ensures optimal dispersion of sound when the speaker is mounted high on the wall.
 
AM-1’s low-frequency output is bolstered by the use of a rear-mounted auxiliary bass radiator (ABR). Used instead of a conventional bass reflex port, the ABR endows AM-1 with exceptional bass response for a cabinet of its size. Unlike a port, it also provides AM-1’s cabinet with a continual seal against the elements. This combination of advanced drive units, unique configuration and classically simple crossover components combines to create a loudspeaker as musical as it is flexible.

And flexible it most definitely is. AM-1 has been carefully designed to be easy to install. Its elegant cast aluminium wall bracket incorporates an ingenious one-plug mounting system. Designed to be positioned in either landscape or portrait mode when mounting, extra flexibility is offered by AM-1’s ability to be rotated through 110 degrees from centre in both directions.

Its minimal projection out from a wall also adds to its appeal. So, while AM-1 has obvious applications such as providing high-quality audio around gardens, patios and around swimming pools, its sleek design will also find favour indoors. Venues such as bars, restaurants and other communal areas will benefit from AM-1’s winning combination of premium sound quality, discreet styling, flexibility and durable construction. Ideal for areas where you have a slab or where you can’t cut holes in ceilings.

 

AM-1 also combines a rust-proof aluminium grille with a rigid cabinet composed of glass-filled plastics, ensuring class-leading resistance to extremes of dust, moisture and UV exposure. It has also undergone rigorous, continuous testing in an accelerated salt-spray chamber, plus outdoor UV accelerated life tests to ensure its parts don’t fade or discolour.

Our Verdict -
Bowers and Wilkins have yet again set the standard with the B&W AM-1, a higher performing outdoor/indoor loudspeaker, with a striking, stylish design and superb sonic performance. Whether you want to listen to your favourite music by the pool or you want to get the party started on your patio – the AM-1 is the loudspeaker for you.
