In 1965, John Bowers was toiling away in the backroom of a South England electronics retail shop owned by his friend Roy Wilkins, assembling speakers by hand. His audio creations were met with such praise that Bowers and Wilkins decided to focus entirely on the endeavor. And thus was born Bowers & Wilkins, a brand committed to creating the very best speakers and audio equipment available.
B&W, as they are known to audiophiles around the world, continuously reset the standard of what is thought possible in the audio industry. The production of B&W Speakers utilizes aerospace-inspired computer modeling, next-generation materials often found in performance racing cars, and a level of craftsmanship usually reserved for artisan furniture. A perusal of the B&W speaker line reveals a collection of iconic speakers, legendary for not only their sound reproduction, but also their aesthetics. Their flagship, the B&W Nautilus Speaker, is likely the most unique-looking speaker in the world, and features unrivaled sound quality derived from proprietary B&W audio engineering. Advancements pioneered by this groundbreaking speaker have found their way into every B&W Speaker available today.
As a testament to their pedigree, B&W Speakers are preferred by discerning audio enthusiasts everywhere, from at-home listeners, to the storied Abbey Road Studios in London. Abt Electronics is proud to offer a selection of B&W Speakers, headphones and audio accessories.
To offer the joy of B&W sound at a reduced price, Abt also carries a selection of B&W Recertified Products.
