The new 700 Series speakers from Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) were debuted in September 2017 to supersede their long-running CM series.

This series is placed below the 800 Series Diamond range in the B&W home audio speakers lineup, but incorporates some of the 800 Series technologies, such as the Continuum Cone midrange and Aerofoil profile bass drivers. Additionally, B&W also implements new technologies in the 700 Series speakers including a Carbon Dome tweeter and solid body tweeter housing.

For this review B&W sent us 5.1 speaker configuration which includes; 702 S2 floorstanding, 705 S2 bookshelf speakers, an HTM71 center channel, and a DB4S subwoofer, all in rosenut finish. These speakers have a solid built quality and look elegant and gorgeous. Although good quality and looks alone do not make a good speaker, my initial listening impression on these speakers is very positive, suggesting that these speakers can indeed produce beautiful sound. The upcoming review will describe in more details the features and performance of these speakers.
