Bowers & Wilkins meets Maserati in this special edition model.
Designed to reflect an opulent yet understated Maserati car interior, it
features luxury black leather, birdseye real wood veneer and Maseratiâ€²s
Trident on the integrated stand.
The 805 Maserati Edition features a tweeter of pure synthetic diamond. We go to such lengths because diamondâ€²s combination of lightness and extreme rigidity means no material is better suited to reproducing high-frequency signals.
Diamond dome tweeters have long been considered an exclusive luxury in the world of audio âˆ’ a refinement to be reserved only for the most expensive, studio-sized loudspeakers. No longer. The 805 Diamond is nothing less than a revolution in speaker design: the first speaker of its size and at this price point to come with a diamond tweeter. Because studio-quality sound shouldnâ€²t just be for studios.
The 805 Maserati Edition is crafted from materials that reflect the partnership: the exquisite birdseye real wood veneer and black Maserati leather reflect the luxurious interior of the brandâ€²s cars, and the speaker stand that forms an integral part of the 805 Maserati Edition is finished with the same polished wood veneer and features the Maserati Trident. The Trident has been part of the Maserati identity since 1926, and was designed by Mario Maserati based upon the statue of Neptune in the fountain of Bolognaâ€²s Piazza Maggiore.
