View Full Version : B&w 802

A friend on mine has a pair of B&W 802s in his garage packed in the original boxes. They are about 15 years old. He is the original owner and they are in great shape. He upgraded to a new pair of 802s because the old pair did not match his new system (i.e. the old 802s have a walnut fiinish and his new 802s have a black finish).

Comments, opinions and thoughts about the quality and performance of this older version of the 802s for 2 channel music listening would be apppreciated.

Any thoughts on how much a well taken care of pair of approximately 15 year old B&W 802s should sell for? We have not discussed price, but my guess is he will sell them to me at a very reasonable price.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Check the reviews for comparable speakers here at audioreview.com. Some of the reviewers will list what they paid for them. You might also be able to find a comparable pair for reference listed on Audiogon.

Find out if they're Nautilus 802's or Matrix 802's big difference.
