    Hi,

    Popped into my local Hifi dealer last weekend and he let slip that there will be a new range of B&W Nautilus, has anyone heard anything? It will be interesting as I was going to upgrade my Hifi Speakers to the 850 Signatures or the Wilson Benesch Arc's but since hearing this I think I will put it on hold..so if anyone knows or hears anything please do share...

    Also heard from a dealer that there would be a new range and if i was thinking of selling my nautilus do so now? no further details though ...the speakers still sound great ,the technology on speakers does not move on at a rapid rate as it does with microchips in pj's therefore is there going to be huge improvement??

    I heard this sometime ago but agree with nickhor, it just isn't worth changing for the slight improvement if any. Obviously the new range will probably contain the 800 and Signature tweeter and drivers.

    The price will probably go up as well.

    Interesting this. I spoke to a guy today about buying his speakers. He mentioned he was upgrading to some new B&W's that are coming out. According to this guy, his friend works in a hifi shop and is taking him to the launch.

    He mentioned the series was going to be called 'diamond' as the tweeters have actual diamonds, he was interested in the 803 'diamonds'.

    Sounds interesting :)
