A Truly amazing bookshelf speaker!
Milled from a solid block of aluminium, the Solid Body Tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised housing that is exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.
Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for the 700 Series and deliver pinpoint imaging accuracy and detailed insight into your music.
Truly amazing sound
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum cone mid-bass driver.

“The real appeal of the B&W 705 S2 stand-mount is that very few loudspeakers at this price are as well rounded; most don’t approach its power handling or imaging, its focus or rhythmic snap – let alone excel in such things.”
