New Color for Bowers & Wilkins 700 Series Signature Speakers
The 705 and 702 are now available in a stunning Midnight Blue Metallic finish.
BOWERS & WILKINS HAS LAUNCHED two new versions of its 705 Signature stand-mount and 702 Signature floor-standing loudspeakers. Available in stunning Midnight Blue Metallic paint, the 705 Signature and 702 Signature models feature the same class-leading combination of exceptional drive unit design and carefully upgraded crossover componentry as the existing Datuk Gloss-finished 700 Series Signature models, which remain available to purchase.
As befits such prestigious products, the new 705 and 702 Signature feature state-of-the-art Bowers & Wilkins technologies, including a decoupled Continuum cone midrange drive unit on the 702 Signature, complemented by Aerofoil-profile bass drivers. Both 702 and 705 Signature also feature the outstanding Carbon Dome tweeter, housed in Bowers & Wilkins iconic Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top assembly.
As with the existing Signature models, both Midnight Blue Metallic loudspeakers feature specially treated and upgraded bypass capacitors sourced from Mundorf, larger heatsinking and, in the case of the 702, an upgraded LF capacitor on the bass section of the crossover. In tandem with the immense benefits both models enjoy as a result of their Tweeter-on-Top configuration, these upgrades improve the already remarkable resolution, openness and spatial retrieval on offer, lending them an even-more polished, refined and involving sound.
Inspired by the Nautilus
As with the Datuk Gloss Signature models, the new Midnight Metallic Blue 702 and 705 Signature are finished to sumptuous standards. Inspired by the Midnight Metallic Blue paint offered on the iconic Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus, the new 702 and 705 Signature are finished in seven coats of metallic-finish paint and lacquer to produce a rich, lustrous finish. To further accentuate and highlight the quality of finish on each model, both Signature speakers have bright metal trim rings around the mid/bass and midrange cones plus bright, silver-finished tweeter grilles. Finally, both models have a Signature identity plate to their rear panel, turning each speaker into a genuine and unique piece of art.
