B&W 705 S2 Loudspeaker (each)

Must be purchased in pairs.

 

... during this review I tapped and stomped my feet. I air-guitared like a real rock star (better, if I’m honest). ... I headbanged. I had fun.
— ALLAN MOULTON, THE ABSOLUTE SOUND, MAY 2018

 

Many audiophiles prefer the coherence of a well-designed two way speaker, feeling that a simpler is better approach, along with only one crossover point to disrupt the sonic landscape the ideal. Should this be your flavor of choice, I suspect you will be very pleased with what the 705 S2's have to offer.
— JEFF DORGAY, TONEAUDIO

 

This uncompromising two-way speaker reveals subtle nuances in music others miss. Its high performance features include a solid body tweeter-on-top design borrowed from the 800 Series Diamond.

Solid Body tweeter 
Milled from a solid block of aluminium, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances. 

Carbon Dome™ tweeter 
Carbon Dome™ tweeters are a brand new technology purpose-built for the 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminium double-dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail. 

Continuum™ cone 
First introduced with the 800 Series Diamond, the Continuum™ cone represents the biggest step-change in midrange performance since Kevlar®. Its woven, coated material provides highly controlled break-up, resulting in a more open, neutral midrange.
