If you look at past launches they tend to be at the start of a working week, so early next week is a good bet.
Don't think so. July-Sept more likely.

As I recall, Europe goes on vacation July/August (depending on the country). That's not a good time to announce a commercial product that you expect to manufacture/sell in volume in Europe.... so that's a dead period. Don't know how/if this translates to consumer products.

You are probably in a better position to know than most of us.

If rumors are true, launch is September and the updated 800 series will progress from D3 to D4.

We are not allowed to reveal much yet and only know the bare minimum. But this time, too, the diamond tweeter will crown the top.
The naming of the new loudspeakers suggests that Bowers & Wilkins is building on the umpteen award-winning and proven technologies.

We are already very hot and are looking forward to an exciting autumn with new superlative speakers!

While we are waiting for the launch - what would you like to be improved in sound and/or aesthetics?

I would like some more wood finish options like walnut or oak.
