The new range of Bowers & Wilkins loudspeakers is made up of eight models: column, floor-standing and central.
Bowers & Wilkins’ new 700 Series range features many of the same technologies as the brand’s flagship 800 Series Diamond range, trusted by the world’s most famous recording studios. The new 700 Series brings studio sound to the home, offering stylish yet high-performance models that match any decor and preference.
The new 700 range continues Bowers & Wilkins’ policy of deploying concepts and technologies from its most high-end models. An exhaustive three-year development program transformed nearly every component deployed in this new range, from cabinet design, construction and finish, to critical acoustic and mechanical improvements.
For the first time at the level of the 700 Series, the range has narrower enclosures, with a curved front baffle and speakers mounted in external “pods”, which constitute a direct visual and technical link with the range. 800 Series Diamond. This new shape greatly reduces the impact of the loudspeaker baffle on sound quality, minimizing the effects of “woofer diffraction”. As a result, the new range is more effective than ever at acoustically ‘disappearing’, allowing you to concentrate on the music without being disturbed by the sound of the speaker cabinet.
These new cabinets come in an all-new Mocha finish, a beautiful, grained wood. Mocha complements the Gloss Black and Satin White finishes previously offered to form a range of three finishes available for most markets globally: a fourth Rosenut finish will also be offered exclusively in the Asia and Pacific markets.
A significant step forward in acoustic performance, Bowers & Wilkins now offers its Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top technology on four models in the new 700 series, half of the total range. From now on, the 702 S3 and 703 S3 column loudspeakers, the 705 S3 floor-standing model and the HTM71 S3 center loudspeaker are equipped with Tweeter-on-Top technology. This means that, for the first time, users have the ability to build a complete home theater system of 700 Series speakers equipped with Tweeter-on-Tops.
