The Making of the Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series Diamond Speakers #ManufacturingMonday
In 1979 we redefined what is possible in sound reproduction with the very first 800 Series speaker — the Matrix 800. In 1998, we re-wrote the rulebook all over again with the Nautilus 800 Series. But we didn’t stop there. We continued to refine and experiment, and now we’ve raised the benchmark again. The 800 Series Diamond harnesses the unique properties of diamond throughout the range, producing a sound of unheard-of accuracy and realism.
For high-end and high-spending audiophiles, the 800 series are revered, and that’s putting it lightly. For more context and review of these speakers check out this article by SoundStage! Xperience’s Aron Garrecht.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
