Abbey Road Studio 2 is the most famous recording studio in the world. It is here The Beatles, U2, and hundreds of others have recorded classic performances. The studio has recently made a change in playback equipment. The story continues from B&W:

‘…and now the legendary control room has undergone a major refurbishment, which includes a new 60 channel AMS Neve 88RS mixing console, and the creation of extra space for the studio’s new Bowers & Wilkins 800 Diamond loudspeakers.

Jonathan Smith, manager of the Studios, is overjoyed with the new developments. Abbey Road has always invested in the best cutting edge technology, to optimise the sound of our wonderful rooms. We are therefore delighted to have installed the finest, state of the art analogue console in the world’s most famous and iconic studio.

In combination with the most fantastic outboard gear and world famous engineers, Studio Two is a truly incredible offering to the modern recording environment.”

The 800 Diamond is the flagship loudspeaker in the Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series Diamond range, and is the loudspeaker of choice of the most demanding recording studios and engineers because of its sheer, unadulterated realism.’

B and W speakers were always noted for referencing classical music especially the famous 801 and 802 speakers.Excellent sounding speaker.
