The newer D-2's have narrow chrome ring trim around the cone drivers and chrome trim ring around the screen cover of the Diamond tweeter. The older D series has the letters B&W on the lower grill cloth where as the D-2 has the names bowers&wilkins on them. My two cents worth, and I suspect I will get heat from this as I have in the past. I compared the older 802D-1 vs 802D-2 side by side, same equipment same room and could hear virtually no difference between the two. Two other salespersons had the same reaction. Although it was a whole new story with either the 800D or 800D-2 vs either 802 newer or older.
