REVIEW: Bowers & Wilkins PX8 – is the bigger brother of Px7 S2 at allmost twice the price worth the additional price?Written by Karl Erik Sylthe
Loudspeaker veteran Bowers & Wilkins has had a big commitment to headphones recently, and have surprised me with both the wireless InEar monitors PI7, and the more conventional Over Ear models Px7 S2. Earlier this autumn, the flagship models Px8 arrived, and we were able to borrow a review-sample that makes it possible to find out whether they are worth the price difference from the Px7 S2 at almost twice the price.
By coincidence, these two review objects arrived at about the same time. And since these are two contenders fighting on largely the same ground, and since ithere`s also been 50 years from memory since I read the Morgan Kane classic Duel in Tombstone, it was inevitable that this review would be a duel.
Over the past year, Sonos has launched two new soundbars – an upgrade to the Beam, and the brand new Ray, which is a bit of a leap forward in Sonos' soundbar range. We have been allowed to borrow both models for participation in a solid test round, trying to find out which of them is the best purchase.
Over the past year, Wiim Mini has emerged as an interesting streamer candidate in the budget class. At the bottom of the budget class to be a bit precise. And when Hifisentralen included it in its range together with a rich selection of DACs, headphone amplifiers and other amplifiers from Topping, it was almost inevitable to ask for borrowing a review sample.
Bowers & Wilkins' iconic Zeppelin was launched last autumn, and has evenutally also landed in Norway. We have had a test round to check if it is able to reach old heights in a new airspace.
