Absolutely gorgeous. And while not the Prestige’s, the 800D3’s I listened to at a dealer were superb - I really liked them a lot.

I'm wondering any sound quality improvement compared to regular version?

With this small price gap, I guess the chance of sound quality improvement is little.

Real world photo but probably the worst you can find. The finish is stunning in reality and you can see the beatiful wood grains.

Thanks for the correct info! Any rumours as to whether they plan on a Prestige 800 D3?
