Description

Stunning Bowers & Wilkins 707 S2 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Is a Tight-Fit Audiophile Specialist: Serves in Two-Channel or Multichannel Systems, Features Proprietary Drivers

The Bowers & Wilkins 707 S2 bookshelf loudspeaker is a tight-fit specialist. Less than seven inches wide, the two-way vented-box design makes itself at home in rooms where space is at a premium all the while providing sensational fidelity. Voice-matched to every other speaker in the 700 Series, 707 S2 also serves as a righteous rear-channel choice for a surround system. Its assortment of proprietary drivers and studio-inspired characteristics deliver insightful detail, information retrieval, and presence from the material at hand.

The keys to the standmount's size-defying performance begin with a one-inch Decoupled Carbon Dome tweeter, an innovation that raises the breakup threshold to 47kHz, begetting pinpoint imaging and uncanny accuracy. Touting similar custom features, a five-inch Continuum cone midrange driver provides an incredibly open, neutral midrange and smooth, extended bass. Bowers & Wilkins' trademarked, rear-firing Flowport results in reduced friction and improved efficiency. Removable magnetic grilles, two two-piece foam plugs for low-end tweaking, self-adhesive rubber feet, and gold-plated binding-post terminals help round out 707 S2.

Of course, 707 S2 also looks the part, with its luxurious finish conveying both simplicity and elegance. But even the aesthetics pale next to its sound – developed and tuned via thousands of hours of listening and hyper-focused on acoustic exactness. If you value nuance and detail, and want to experience high-frequency extension and midrange weight with audiophile-grade balance and control, 707 S2 stands at the ready. What's more, the two-way vented-box model offers versatile placement options and a five-year manufacturer warranty – and our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

"The 707 S2's strengths are obvious as they are surprising for such a compact design. They sound astonishingly authoritative, with a solid, composed presentation that renders bass with plenty of punch and power."
What Hi-Fi?

"It might not be the fastest or most forensically detailed small speaker on the market, but I haven't heard another that marries the advantages of being small with sonic benefits previously enjoyed exclusively by beefy floorstanders. It's freaky, but in a good way. A terrific standmount and outstanding value for money."
Hi-Fi Choice, Editor's Choice

"The 707 performance defies its price tag. Some listeners will choose them as great sounding, and cost-effective surround speakers for a home theater application. However, those choosing the 707 as a stereo pair of speakers – in a smaller-sized listening space – will not be disappointed at their prowess."
– Rob Johnson, TONEAudio

"In stereo music applications, whether with the 702 S2 floorstanders or the 705 S2 bookshelf speakers, the musicality of these speakers cannot be denied, producing sweet and transparent midrange with smooth and detailed highs. The ability of these speakers to image and project a believable soundstage is outstanding."
Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity

"The Bowers & Wilkins 707 S2 is a worthy upgrade to the CM1 S2 with better features and an even nicer appearance. The speaker sounds extremely detailed and has a surprising amount of bass. It would make an excellent set of surrounds in a 706 S2-based system."
CNET

"B&W's bookshelf beauties are a mesmerizing listen, offering an intimate, detailed presentation and terrific authority for compact speakers."

Carbon Dome Tweeter

Carbon Dome tweeters are a new technology purpose-built for 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the prior aluminum double-dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail.

Continuum Cone 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.
