Product Description

The B&W 706 S2 bookshelf/standmount speaker has the acoustic heft to satisfy the demands of bigger rooms. Sadly this doesn't mean you can locate them in a "concert-hall" type area and expect them to be shaking the windows 20 metres away!

Overview

However, if you have a big room but still intend to sit relatively close to the 706 S2's, then you'll probably be very happy. You will certainly bring the breathtaking clarity and definition of studio sound home with the new 706 S2 speakers. 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 706 S2 is a bookshelf/standmount speaker with the acoustic heft to satisfy the demands of bigger rooms, thanks to its large midrange/bass drive unit. The 706 S2 speaker delivers a sound that feels fully formed and entirely true to life, with outstanding detail, spaciousness preserved intact and real musical insight into recordings.

Technology

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, B&W have 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.

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 Bass/Midrange: First introduced with the 800 Series Diamond, the Continuum cone represents the biggest step-change in midbass performance since Kevlar. Its woven, coated material provides highly controlled break-up, resulting in a more open, neutral midrange and more dynamic, rhythmic bass.

Bring Hollywood Home: Providing the ideal balance of high-performance acoustics and living room-friendly dimensions, 700 Series speakers are a superlative choice for home cinema sound. Pair them with one of the two centre-channel speakers in the range and the powerful DB4S subwoofer, and you’re set for a truly transformational movie experience.

In The News

In leading recording studios, music that will soon be heard everywhere is heard first through Bowers & Wilkins speakers. “Bowers & Wilkins speakers are the only speakers I have found that enable me to accurately listen to how the original performance has been recorded.”- Peter Cobbin, producer and sound engineer. Recent feature film work includes Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Doctor Strange and Alien: Covenant.
