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.
Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.
What-HiFi UK says
"Even by Bowers & Wilkins’ high standards, the 705 S2s are a supremely elegant pair of speakers.
The 705 S2s are instantly impressive. This is a weighty, solid delivery with a quantity and depth of bass that's both disarming and impressive given the size of the cabinet. But this bass, while attractive to the ear and arguably the first thing you notice, doesn't dominate the performance. In fact, it helps imbue the solid mid-range with a richness that makes vocals and acoustic guitars an aural pleasure
Add treble that's crisp and clear without ever veering into hardness or harshness, and you've got the complete tonal package. Such is the integration through the frequency range, the sound flows seamlessly from top to bottom."
