    The Bowers & Wilkins 805 Maserati Edition is One Sexy Speaker

    As I was filtering through my email this morning, one in particular caught my eye. It was from Bowers & Wilkins and I could not keep myself from clicking on it.

    What caught my eye was this photo, the Bowers & Wilkins 805 Maserati Edition speaker.

    It is basically the standard stand-mounted model 805 speaker, the "flagship" 800 Series Diamond speaker in Bowers & Wilkins line up, but trimmed with black Maserati leather and real birdseye maple wood veneer. It even has Maserati’s Trident on the base of the speaker's integrated stand.

    Now, I'm not a huge Maserati fan but the look of this speaker is SEXY !!!



    I would love to see and hear a pair of these, in person. What do you think? Anyone heard the standard Bowers & Wilkins 805s?

    I have heard the 805s -- very nice but hard to say that they are best-in-class, especially given the price of $5000/pair does not include the really nice stands (add another $700). Lots of dough in my world. The target for these (even in the non-exotic Maserati trim) is probably folks that have a whole different lifestyle than me or frankly most other humans on this planet:

    I'm a HUUUUGE fan of Bowers & Wilkins and this speaker just blows me away.

    Does anybody know where I can hear and see the Maserati's?? (I live in Santa Barbara, Ca...but for these I wouldn't mind driving...)

    Check the Bowers & Wilkins website. They have a Find a Dealer page. Find a retailer - Bowers & Wilkins | B&W
