Bowers & Wilkins HTM82 D4 Review – Centre Channel Speaker

Not just another speaker range, though. Every new 800 Series Diamond generation represents a turning point for Bowers & Wilkins. The most cutting-edge line of loudspeakers B&W is capable of producing is the gold standard, the icon. Theater systems based on the smaller 803 D4 or 804 D4 are ideal candidates for the HTM82 D4 center channel speaker. A seamless and cogent listening experience will be provided by its more smaller midrange drive unit, which is perfectly suited to match those of its siblings.

Our Verdict

Although the new HTM82 D4 is B&W’s smallest center-channel speaker, it has many of the same architectural elements as its bigger brothers, such as the Reverse Wrap cabinet and MatrixTM bracing. The combination of the two technologies produces a speaker that is more acoustically effective, quieter, and has higher sound quality than ever.

The specialized midrange cone of the HTM82 D4 employs three crucial Bowers & Wilkins technologies: the Continuum cone, Biomimetic Suspension, and midrange decoupling, the latter of which ensures minimal interference from the bass drivers’ functioning. Outstanding clarity is the outcome.

There is one more thing that needs to be spoken. For most people, ₹950,000 is a large sum of money to spend on audio. However, that kind of investment won’t get you to the middle of many manufacturers’ product lines in the realm of high-end loudspeakers. Actually, the Bowers & Wilkins HTM82 D4 are a fantastic value. For your money, you get a speaker that has been in the works for more than 40 years, a flagship transducer with a history of constant, incremental refinement. An absolute classic.

    Exceptional build quality but overall disappointed.

    By Leila 

    Overall Experience:

    I liked the quality of the materials and the quality of the technology.
    What I liked the least is that it works a lot boosting the recordings more than anything else.
    It’s very good, but for me sometimes I miss a little more high-pitched brightness. Perhaps if you could regulate it with a basic canal mixer, raising or lowering highs and lows, they would be perfect.
    Even so, for the price offer they have, I am delighted. A lot of quality!!!!
