***SÅLD***Offering for sale a pair of B&W (Bowers & Wilkins) Matrix 803 Series 2 medium-sized reference-quality floorstanding loudspeakers for 11 000 kronor (or best reasonable offer). These are the most recent and advanced of the legendary Matrix models, preferred by many hi-fi enthusiasts over the later Nautilus series.

They should make a nice upgrade from the B&W 805, N804, 804S, and possibly even the N803 models, to say nothing of the 700, the 600, and the CDM series. They will also serve wonderfully as rear units in a top-range B&W multichannel setup. The Matrix 803 S2 is a very neutral two-way reference-class speaker. It has a remarkably flat frequency response, no colorations, excellent dynamics, and a very nice high frequency and low frequency extension (the bass is remarkably detailed and tight, and I have used these as a main stereo pair without a sub).

Peter Aczel of The Audio Critic, one of the more critically-minded and thorough reviewers out there, strongly endorsed this model as "a very well-designed, very accurate, one could say almost flawless, monitor-type loudspeaker... a contender for reference status... pretty much above criticism." The complete review is here.

Doug Schneider of SoundStage (available here) compared the 803 Series 2 model to the recording studio legend B&W Matrix 801 while considering it to be superior to the bigger Matrix 802 units.

The speakers have been meticulously cared for in a pet-, smoke-, child-, and (up until now) spouse-free household and maintain their original sheen. They are in excellent condition in every way and have no repair history. They come with upgraded spikes, a spare tweeter unit, original packaging, manuals, brochure, etc.

The model is rare on the market. The price when new was more than 3000 US dollars. I'm selling them due to recent upgrade and am willing to consider reasonable offers. Due to size and weight I would prefer a personal pickup. The speakers are in Göteborg.

Please email me for photos or more information. Det går bra att skriva på svenska också.

Thanks for looking.
