Depending on what your requirements are for speakers, for example, the 803 has extra bass driver and larger cabinet for deeper stronger bass in a large room whereas 804 is designed for a smaller room. That said, I found little to no difference when I compared the 802D vs. the 802 D2. I would suspect a similar outcome with 803D vs. 804 D2 except for the difference I described above. I've stated this before in other threads and took some heat from certain individuals, but I have stood by my opinion on this. I am not alone in this opinion as many B&W dealers have agreed with me. And the ones that thought the new D2 series was a bit better said differences were marginal at best. If money is no object and you have to have the latest design, go buy the new D2 series. But if money is a concern than the 803D is by far the better value. IMHO.
