705 S2 Signature

Like their floorstanding siblings, 702 Signatures, B&W’s 705 S2 Signature bookshelf speakers have been a revelation since we first heard them and they just continue to impress.

These Special Edition Signature versions are a big step up from standard S2 Anniversary 705s, look stunning in high gloss Datuk or Midnight Blue Metallic finishes and, like the 702 Signatures, are most definitely in our absolute favourites list.

Dimensions: (H x W x D) 407 x 200 x 301mm (including tweeter, grill and terminals)
Weight: 9.3kg

705 Signature Standmount speaker – B&W’s most compact Tweeter-on-Top model gets the Signature treatment.
The 705 Signature is finished in exclusive Datuk Gloss or Midnight Blue Metallic and features optimised crossovers, a Continuum cone mid/bass driver and a Carbon Dome tweeter housed in Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top enclosure.

Crafted. Honed. Perfected.
Featuring the Continuum cone and Carbon Dome, this compact standmount loudspeaker is finished in exclusive Datuk Gloss or Midnight Blue Metallic and features optimised crossovers, making it worthy of the Signature nameplate.

Optimised tweeter housing
Milled from a solid block of aluminium, the Solid Body Tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised housing that is exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.

Sharper detail
Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for the 700 Series and deliver pinpoint imaging accuracy and detailed insight in to your music.

Truly amazing sound
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum cone mid-bass driver.
