    Selling for my father, his B&W 802n's in red cherry. these are in excellent condition with no damage.
    They do not have any boxes with them so it will have to be collection only.
    Selling because he upgraded to KEF Reference 207/2.

    Price is £3200 collection.

    £2300. Not offered before now as it's probably too low, but seeing as you asked... Most I can go to though.

    how would these compare to the 802D or 802diamonds ?, i currently have the pm1's so wouldnt really know if this would be a step forward, sideward or backward even though they are more powerful but are older..

    Kind regards

    They would easily sound better than PM1s IMO. 805Ns probably do too based on my experience with my SCM1s and having heard PM1s a couple of times. To me one of the main sellers of the 802 is the marlan head, I demoed 802 803 and 804 Diamonds a month ago and the jump to the 802 was incredible, everything just blended into one as if it was all coming from the same driver compared to the 803 and the main difference there is the head so I assume that's a lot of the difference. The Nautilus range is still better than speakers that can be bought new for the second hand prices, especially the big ones. Not to mention they look awesome and look very similar to the current ones when grilles are on. One concern for you though is an amp that will drive PM1s without being complete overkill will not be man enough for these. Haven't heard the N802s though so can only speculate and certainly cannot compare to the Ds or Diamonds.

    In regards to the N vs the D or Diamonds, there are a few people who prefer the 802N over the diamonds, not that they are better, just that it is a different sound. My father did demo the Diamonds but he thought the N's were more musical which he prefered, and the cost of getting them wasn't worth it. Hope that helps!

    Hey Wiz,

    I have a slightly 'mental' suggestion......

    Would you consider splitting them?

    The Roksan will work ok, its a good amp, i would personally give them more breathing room with extra power as they can be hard to drive, but they reward you with a truly amazing sound. My dad used chord amps with them for a long time but then moved to Anthem power amps.
