A quick note up front. This page is from around 2001, so none of the newer speakers are here (i.e. the Diamond series, the 700 series, etc). I’ve started adding a few new reviews, so check back soon.
Click on a column header to sort a table on that column.
I’ve skipped a few sites, most notably the ones who charge money
(avguide.com etc). Also missing are many "we haven’t actually listen
to them but we think they’re good" articles that some sites tend
to write if they want to sell the speakers to you.
There are quite a few dead links by now, the web does not last forever. I’ll remove the hyperlink on the ones I find and leave the info. Please leave a comment if you find links I should add. Thank you!
There is a deadish forum at B&W Speakers Forum
BW has released a document helping you both to pick and to place
a subwoofer for your home. Pick it up here
