if helps any, I have the utopia Divas and a the time I was tossing up between them and the 802Ds, in my demoing I found them quite comparable. there was something about the sound of the focals I loved but if I had settled on the 802Ds I wouldnt have felt robbed. they are great speakers. well worthy of their fame and accolades :)

I did hear them versus 800Di's at Len's once and very much liked the mids and treble, but the bass was a bit soft and not as well defined as it was with the B&W's.  Bear in mind that was vs 800Di's, not 802Di's. 

 

Also, maybe Len's room at play but the B&W's produced a much better defined sound stage. 

 

Fwiw, all the love seems to be with the 802D3 these days, but you can get the 802Di's sounding very similar if you spend some time getting them in the optimum position and with rake and toe-in optimised. The centre axes should cross just behind the listening position, and a bit of forward rake is needed if your ear height isn't on or just below tweeter axis. Fwiw, I have 800Di's and they sound fantastic with a big amp, and same applies to the 802Di's.

Agree with the comment on the Alto soft bass. I'm not a B&W fanboy but I do like these.

      Plenty of reviews out there, but these were and still are some of B&W’s best speakers in their respective categories.
       
      I have these listed elsewhere separately but am offering these as a HT package at a discounted price.
