Manufacturers Details:

Experience the detail.

The top-performing stand mount speaker in the range, 705 S2 features studio-inspired technologies, for immaculate sound quality. 

Sharper detail

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


Engineered With Care: 

A house for high frequencies

Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances. 

Truly amazing sound.

Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the revolutionary Continuum cone, as found in our flagship 800 Series Diamond. Once reserved for only our most revered models, Continuum brings you a cleaner and more accurate performance.

 

Key Features:

Clean and clear.

The midrange drivers in these floorstanders feature decoupled design, adapted from a similar system in the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet coloration, and boosts midrange clarity. 

A Triumph of Science.

Developed using advanced computer modeling techniques, the Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has variable thickness, providing stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most. The result: deep and dynamic bass.
