    Yeah, but none of those other sets give you the opportunity to spend.....two hundred thousand dollars on two speakers!

    No offense...

    Of course, each of us is entitled to our opinions.

    I like my 1400's WAY more than my (just sold) B&W Signature 800's. That list comes from a reviewer who listens by price!!
    At 12k for new 1400's they are quite a bargin compared to even the 25k 800 diamonds!
    Always fun learning more.......

    I haven't heard the Signature 800s, but I have had the opportunity to AB the 800D and the 1400 Arrays in a double blind comparison. I could happily live with either speaker. I think they are both quite wonderful. Obviously at 1/2 the price, I think the JBL is the hands down winner, but interestingly in the blind listening session, it was actually difficult to consistently know which speaker was which. As much as we can in audio, I'd call it a tie.

    Not surprised. i've always thought, nice sounding B&W is; way overpriced and all about a status.

    You can see on the Audio Review website the preview of the magazine; unfortunately it is at low-resolution...
    We will be allowed to distribute freely the complete PDF of the test only after at least two month from the publication. In the meanwhile I put here two graphs (I know the Director of Audio Review allows me to do so).

    Attachment 55953

    The upper graph is of course the frequency response in listening room (pink noise, 2,83 Vin); the lower graph is the frequency response in anechoic environment (always 2,83 Vin). The upper curve is measured on axis and shows also the L-Pads level variations; the center and lower curves are measured at 30 and 45 degrees respectively.

    In the past months/years Audio Review tested also JBL Everest, K2-S9800, 4312MII, 4319, ES80, LS80 and Studio 580. For all of them the embargo period has finished, so I can publish the tests if anyone is interested...
    Thank you for your input.
    You are welcome.
