The B&W 704 Series 2 is a high-performance, slimline floorstanding loudspeaker from Bowers & Wilkins, designed to blend unobtrusively into your home environment.

Looks can be deceiving – despite slim dimensions, 704 S2 has the commanding presence of a much larger speaker, thanks to advanced technologies such as a dedicated Continuum™ cone FST™ midrange.

Description

704 Series 2

Slim, elegant and sonically exceptional. With the 704 S2, music is a revelation, with details picked out in pin-sharp detail and with exceptional realism.

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

Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone midrange driver.

The midrange drivers in these floorstanders benefit from a decoupled design, adapted from a similar system in the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet colouration, and boosts midrange clarity, for clean and clear sound.

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

Bowers & Wilkins

Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) is now a very large company, with distribution chains and customers all over the world. However it began in 1966 with John Bowers hand-assembling speaker systems for local clients in Worthing, West Sussex, in the back of the electrical store that he ran with his friend Roy Wilkins.

Five decades later the company is a global leader in sound, and in 2016 Bowers & Wilkins were incredibly proud to celebrate their 50th anniversary – and even more proud that the ethos, passion and drive of its founder is still a vital element in its continuing success.
