Making a B&W speaker

Nice quick-motion video of the making of an 800 series B&W speaker. Quite a process, especially for the piano-black finish models. Some audiophiles tend to dismiss  B&W probably due to their mass sales and HT-oriented dealer network but I still recall hearing the 802D for the first time when I was listening to every Wilson, Audio Physic and Martin Logan I could hear locally. They really sounded like music to me. As the video suggests, B&W is a serious design that makes some lauded speakers look like the work of hobbyists with decent woodworking skills. Enjoy.
