What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Product Summary

Sheer size dictates that not many homes can accommodate a professional monitor system. But many a music aspires to enjoy, at home, the new era of enhanced listening pleasure such a system opens up. The 802 FS has conceived as a domestic monitor directly related to the 801 FS professional system, but with significant differences tailored to the home listener’s needs.

Technical highlights

The midrange head assembly incorporates Fibrecrete (glass reinforced concrete) a B&W innovation. The secret is that the outer casing of this component is moulded from rigid polystyrene while the inner lining is Fibrecrete. The Environmental controls located on the back of the midrange head assembly are specially developed by B&W. These controls enable the user to make the subtlest of adjustments, compensating for such factors as peculiarities of listening room conditions and the unusual balance that sometimes occur in digital recording. The superb high frequency driver has a motor diaphragm assembly which operates as a diminishing-size sound source as frequency increases. This advanced technique results in vastly superior high-frequency dispersion, high power handling capacity and a new order of transient behaviour in the 8Hz to 20kHz region.
