For Sale are B&W (Bowers and Wilkins) 803 D3 floor standing speakers in excellent, like new condition. I have the original boxes and accessories, and will ship in those boxes. I bought these speakers 17 months ago from an authorized B&W seller (not Best Buy). Only reason for selling is to upgrade to the B&W 800 D3. The sound from these speakers is fantastic. ASKING PRICE IS $11,900 (retail is $17,000).

Buyer to pay for shipping and any PayPal fees. Local pick up in Houston is available.

Shipping should be safely done with a lift gate truck. The weight and dimensions of each speaker are 188 lbs. and 55.12”H x 26.8”W x 19.3” D.
