    Personally, I am drooling. I bet they are fantastic.

    Looking at Stereophile's aticle, the new tweeters add a HUGE amount to the price.

    First, the 800's are $20,000 a pair(!) and the classic 801's are $16,000 a pair(!)

    Second, on a lesser speaker, the 803's WITHOUT the diamond tweeter are $2750 each, adding the new tweeter takes the price to $4000 each. $1250 per upgraded tweeter, wow...

    Anyway, BEAUTIFUL looking speakers. The new center's and sub's look awesome.

    Very very nice.

    B&W not only sound great but are also crafted so nicely.

    The finish and style are what set them apart.
