In 1966 John Bowers and lifelong friend Roy Wilkens founded a manufacturing company called B&W Electronics and produced their first speaker the P1 assembled from off the shelf parts soon after. In 1970 they released the DM70 a revolutionary speaker made up of electrostatic midrange and bass driver in a space age curved speaker cabinet revolutionizing the loudspeaker market forever. Next was the use of Kevlar in drive units, then an isolated tweeter in the DM7, separate chambers with the 801. In the 80’s the famous Abbey Road Studios chose the 801 for their reference monitor of whose replacements they still use today and in 1993 finally the Nautilus which still may be the finest loudspeaker ever produced. B&W loudspeakers offer the finest heritage and sound quality on the market today and their complete range fits all budgets for all music lovers.

It’s obvious that Nautilus is no ordinary loudspeaker, even before you listen to it. That’s because it’s the product of no ordinary speaker manufacturer. The Nautilus is the end result of the most ambitious research and development project Bowers & Wilkins has ever undertaken – to create, as near as possible, the perfect loudspeaker.
