The W8 is the first floorstander in the Boenicke Audio range.
You’ll note how the design aspects flow from the little W5 into the side-firing woofer and widebander to which the W8 adds a dedicated midrange and larger ambient tweeter.
The midrange driver is custom and sports an apple tree phase plug and maple cone on the back of the magnet.
Expect deeper and more plentiful bass with the ability to fill most domestic listening spaces.
Listening to the W8 for the first time is finally hearing your favourite musicians as living entities within your listening space and no longer as two-dimensional cut-outs. The magic of individuals playing together to create a performance is laid bare by the W8 as an experience you will enjoy each time you listen.

Review Excerpts

“Quite simply the most stunning pair of small floorstanding speakers we have heard – be prepared to be amazed.”


“The Boenicke W8s do absolutely glorious things to the voices of female vocalists...”


“...its performance with voices is such that it gets you wondering if Boenicke has also found a way to equip the W8 with lungs...”
