With larger dimensions than its sibling 707 S2, this bookshelf/standmount speaker has the acoustic heft to satisfy the demands of bigger rooms.
Designers often argue that a product's functional and aesthetic qualities are closely related. Bowers & Wilkins couldn't agree more with this remark. This is a philosophy that runs deep in the DNA of the 700 Series. A speaker range that's music to your ears, and very easy on your eyes as well.
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, well outside the human range of hearing. This allows pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail, without any unwanted noise disturbing your listening.
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum cone midrange/bass driver. 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, and a tigher, more responsive bass.
This woven composite material offers more flexibility and driver control than Kevlar. It also offers lower noise and better self-dampening, and the impulse response time is far quicker than previous cone technologies.
Developed over an eight-year period, the Continuum cone was first featured on the flagship 800 Series Diamond models, including the 800 D3, now in use in Abbey Road Studios. It truly makes your music come alive, delivering the crucial sounds fundamental to any great music experience.
The bass reflex port is located on the rear baffle. Although the port tubing is made from a smooth-surfaced material, the flared exit is made from a dimpled polypropylene material that minimises turbulence as the air exits (and enters!) the port.
This Flowport system from Bowers & Wilkins creates a low-end response that is deep, yet controlled and clear.
Bring the breathtaking clarity and definition of studio sound home with the new 700 Series. Replacing the CM Series, the range combines studio-grade 800 Series Diamond technologies with purpose-built innovations to elevate home audio to an entirely new level. And all this from room-friendly cabinets designed to fit beautifully into your home environment.
The 700 Series is an entirely new range of speakers. Compared with the outgoing CM Series, every transducer has changed and radically improved. To do this, Bowers & Wilkins has borrowed some of the most advanced technologies from their flagship 800 Series Diamond, adapting them to suit a more attainable price point. And they've introduced entirely new technologies, designed specifically for this range.
The new 700 Series. Inspired by recording studios. Made for living rooms.
You can hear the engineering excellence and passion, and that is why Bowers & Wilkins' speakers are used in leading recording studios around the world, such as the legendary Abbey Road Studios, due to the accuracy they provide. Bowers & Wilkins is a global leader in bringing music and sound to your ears - and your experience - the way it was meant to be heard.
A great speaker does more than allow you to hear music. It acts as a bridge - a way to close the divide between listener and performance. Listen to 700 Series speakers, and music feels alive. You discover details you never noticed before. You can place every instrument, every note, every intake of breath, with flawless accuracy. You can sense the emotion in the room. Suddenly, you're no longer just listening to a recorded performance. You're right there, with the performer in the studio.
