Wikipedia entry on B&WNot a lot there really

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

  1. Hello,

    Great site but… I’m searching for an amp that’ll fit my B&W emphasis’ speakers. Can someone help me out?

    Thank you,


  2. Alex
    Firstly hope all is well, just a quick one I hope, but would you be interested or do you know anybody who would be interested in selling a pair of emphasis speakers please?

    I am a real B&W fan of the old school style an dhave collected loads of the old blueroom speakers covering housepods, technopods and dadara babies,



  3. Any emphasis b&w speakers for sale??

    feel free to get in contact!!

    bestest regards
