The Contiuum mid/bass driver which creates layered midrange sound which is quintessential in the accurate reproduction of vocals and key instruments including piano, guitar and string instruments, is a direct descendant from their world famous 800 Series monitors.To complement this new cone Bowers and Wilkins have retained their Decoupled Double Dome Tweeter, an important ingredient of imparting the rhythm of the music.Surprisingly compact, these aesthetically pleasing bookshelf speakers delight with their rhythmic sound.
The 707 S2 delivers a sound that feels fully formed and entirely true to life, with outstanding detail, spaciousness and musical insight into recordings. Carbon Dome tweeters are a brand new technology purpose-built for the 700 Series and deliver pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail. 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.When they are given a kick drum, a bass guitar and a voice, the 707 S2s take you to hi-fi heaven. These B&W's are able to tie together all of the instruments and give the track real thump.
