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.
When Bowers & Wilkins set out to create the world’s best loudspeaker, we asked ourselves some fundamental questions. Is it possible to create a theoretically perfect speaker – one that produces next to no distortion? Does a speaker have to be a box? If you remove the box, what would a speaker look like? More importantly, what would it sound like? The result was Nautilus.
A Lasting Legacy
Our founder, John Bowers, always dreamed of building the perfect speaker – one that brings sounds to the listener exactly as they were recorded. His dream inspires all Bowers & Wilkins designs. And it’s why we set out on the ground breaking, five year research and development programme that resulted in Nautilus. The result is the dream of a visionary audio engineer made into reality.
